Yo what’s good fam!
Back with another review for ya.
If you’re in the US I hope you had a great holiday weekend for the 4th of July
Now back to the good stuff!
Today I’m checking out another library from CineSamples, this time, it’s an orchestral brass library
So let’s get into it!
What is CineBrass?
It’s a dedicated orchestral brass library that was recorded at the SONY Pictures scoring stage, yeah…like many of the movies you love.
They worked with actual hollywood brass players, to capture “that” sound.
It runs in the free Kontakt Player so you don’t need the full version of kontakt to use it.
And just like everything else they do…
it’s laid out and programmed in a way that anyone can use, it’s not complex or cryptic at all.
- content: 8.6GB
- format: kontakt 4 and kontakt 4 player
- price: $399
If you want that huge, hollywood style brass sound that’s easy to control, load, and play.
Check this out, period.
One thing I love about CineSamples is how easy they make it to use their libraries. Though they are powerful and really capture that sound that composers are looking for, they make it simple to use for those that make not be composers, may not understand all the articulations, sections, and other functions.
Sure, those that are advanced in all these areas will feel right at home as well, and will appreciate a lot of the programming and features that went into the library.
However, unlike many top notch cinematic orchestral libraries, if you don’ t have a complete understanding of the full orchestra and all it’s articulations, playing styles, etc, you will not be scared away by this library, and THAT is one of the things I love about their libraries.
I give CineBrass 4.5 out of 5 subs, great library, full of realism and a sound that just makes you smile…I literally laughed quite a few times playing this, it’s that good.
One thing I wish it had, some of the low chords and octave patches like their CineOrch library…but just with the horns. That would be pretty nice (hint hint…patch update….)
They don’t sacrifice realism and high quality sound for usability, and they don’t sacrifice usability for flexibility and advanced programming.
My demo can’t do this library justice, I really suggest you go over to their site and hear it in the proper context. http://cinesamples.com/products/cinebrass/
Fear not, if you’re not a composer you can still get great use out of this library. Anyone wanting a blockbuster brass sound, this is definitely one to consider. I personally used it in an rnb/downtempo track the other day and it fit quite well. The controls over mic and eq really let you make it your own.
Enough chatter, go check it out man!
