Arturia Ship BRASS
Brass in packet

After several months of tweaking and refining – you may remember we first saw Brass at this years Musik MESSE, the finished version is now shipping. The collaboration sees Arturias progamming nowse and Ircams physical modeling technology coming together to produce this standalone or plug-in aimed solely at emulating brass instruments. Trumpet, trombone, saxaphone are all modeled and incorporates playable instrument models with a large collection of predefined phrases to help make your BRASS sound particularly authentic. This is what Arturia say about BRASS:
BRASS is a new kind of virtual instrument: a software recreation of the trumpet, saxophone, and trombone. This software allows you to play instruments like a professional performer would do: same control, flexibility, and expressiveness (without the years of training it takes to do so). It gives you instant and constant creation. Brass is so dynamic and easy-to-use that you will never go back to flat sampled riff libraries ever again. With three instruments at your disposal, you can pick one and start playing. You will instantly feel like you're playing a real instrument, not a set of recorded samples layered and static. BRASS also contains an extensive performance-based riff library which is entirely configurable and expandable. Organized by styles, these riffs are a great way to get started if you are not used to programming a horn. They can even be triggered during live performances. Choose, create, import and modify riffs to match your needs or play the modeled instruments directly in LIVE mode with a keyboard and other real-time controls; in both cases BRASS will revolutionize the way you create music. Below we have listed just a few of the other features you will find in BRASS. BRASS is shipping now, available for VST, Dxi, RTAS and Audio Units.
Standard retail price: $349/Eur 279
