Sample Logic announces Fanfare Kontakt Player virtual instrument 07/12/11
Sample Logic and System Blue have announced Fanfare, which they describe as a ground-breaking Kontakt Player virtual instrument pairing the DCI World-Champion Blue Devils marching brass with the award-winning sound design of Sample Logic.
From traditional marching brass to full-blown cinematic soundscapes, Sample Logic say that Fanfare delivers the definitive marching brass library for educators and arrangers, and an extraordinarily versatile and inspiring construction toolkit for film, TV, game composers, producers, and electronic musicians.
Tapping into the mind of premier wind and brass arranger John Meehan, Fanfare features a broad array of samples recorded by Leslie Ann Jones on The Scoring Stage at Skywalker Sound (Lucasfilm Ltd Company) and on the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium (home of the Buffalo Bills) by Grammy Award winner Frank Dorritie. The indoor recordings were done at close, mid, and far microphone placements, while the outdoor recordings were captured with state of the art stadium surround sound recording techniques. Sample Logic tells us that the resulting sonic textures range from full stadium ambience to an "in-your-face" 85-piece brass ensemble, with all of the recordings capturing The Blue Devils' signature sound of amazingly inventive chords, avant-garde clusters, swells, and organic brass effects.
