The finest three horn players in the world recorded as a two piece section and as a soloist in the hall at Air studios. Electronic Delivery.
From mellow chocolatey and moving melodious passages to hard and biting staccatos this volume gets you up and running with the most noble of orchestral brass.
After the delights of enormous and brash brass libraries providing broad, brushstroke approaches to writing (which have, to some extent, characterised recent film, gaming and TV music in recent times), Spitfire are at last proud to present many a-list composer's 'go-to' horn players. Providing you with the tools you need to write detailed and focussed horn parts that have a personality and style that represents your personality, that expresses your creative will and provides you with fresh pastures of colour and experimentation.
If you're looking to add richness to your strings, a reflective lonely and distant top line or that crescendoing growl and bite that strings don't possess we'd recommend arming yourself with horns before you look into any other sections of the brass choir.
Composers have been travelling the world over for many years now, our strings are formidable here in London alongside our woodwinds and brass. But the horns There's just something about our horns, maybe it's the colliery tradition, the numerous symphony and chamber orchestras, the three major opera houses, several world class concert halls and 80+ theatre pits and buzzing film business in London alone. It leaves our horn players a cut above the rest of the world, so-much-so we've heard of clandestine "replacement" sessions taking place for horns under the cover of darkness for scores being recorded elsewhere.
The 1st volume features three of the finest players in London today one recorded solo, two recorded in unison. They are seated exactly in situ so combine the a2 patches with the solo ones for a slightly larger section whilst maintaining spectral integrity. Moreover combine with other BML modules or indeed the Albion range and the spacial integrity is maintained. Remember this is not just panning left to right. If you want them to sound like they're sitting behind the violins you have to place them there!
This is a deeply sampled library with a selection of essential articulations curated by multi award winning composers and musicians. The library features multiple round robins, dynamic layers and easily usable fully functional legato with control of vibrato.
The library is presented with numerous microphone positions which you can not only mix and blend to fit the application you're working on, but also automate for dramatic shifts in focus and depth. We have also specially commissioned 3 exclusive Jake Jackson mixes of every sample to save you time and system resources. These mixes are specially designed to work in different applications from pop to chamber to epic cinematic and by using these mixes across the BML range you can achieve total mix integrity, just as Jake would do it!
This volume features what would be considered a modest section, but recorded in extreme detail with a huge selection of articulations and playing styles.
For a larger belting section don't forget we also have a our best-selling 'Horn Phalanx' featuring 6 players blowing the bloody doors off. Combine this volume with that and you have a sea of nine horns. Mahler would be proud.
