The VHorns Brass Section contains 6 instruments: 2 trumpets, 2 trombones and 2 flugelhorns.
Each of them has a distinct tone and was recorded by a different player.
You can also purchase them separately
Thanks to our proprietary HAT (Harmonic Alignment Technology), VHorns is not just another heavily multisampled instrument - you can play articulations yourself like a player would, with just a MIDI controller (or by drawing in automation)! There are no complicated keyswitches involved to play staccatos or anything else, it's just a matter of playing it that way.
All you need to do is play a note and adjust the air flow, that's it! You can even automate vibrato if you want.
We carefully measured the different parameters that change when a player uses vibrato and combined everything into a highly realistic and adjustable vibrato for VHorns.
There are multiple ways to control the vibrato: automatic, automatic depending on time, and completely manually.
A large part of what horn players play are legatos, so we spent a considerale amount of time and effort to carefully extract every little aspect, pitch changes, noises, etc. and make ours indistinguishable from a real performance.
They go from fast note changes to slow bends, with and without extra attack. We covered all that and let you choose how to control them.
The legatos behavior can be adjusted and even randomized for more life-like performances
Recording a horn can be done in various ways and at different positions. We used 4 different microphone positions so that you can get the exact sound you want, as if you chose the microphone placement yourself.
This can yield even better results when using the "virtual space" which is detailed below.
You can apply reverb and EQ to completely mix it to your liking.
The virtual space perfectly reproduces what a real recording of an ensemble would be using convolution. When you record a big band, you usually place a pair of microphones in front of the musicians and they naturally take position in the stereo field depending on where they are in the room.
The Virtual Space does exactly the same thing: you can place the musician wherever you like.
When using this with multiple tracks, you immediately have the feeling of being in front of a real horns section.
Mutes are part of the sound that defines horns. We recreated these using a variety of mutes and a specific experimentation process.
If you want to use a Harmon, a plunger, a straight mute, a cup or a bucket, VHorns has you covered!
Just select which one you want from the main interface and start playing.
There are many ways to play a brass insrument, and we had to make a choice on the default settings, however many of the options can be customized to your taste.
Even better, most settings can be randomized for natural and unpredictable results.
VHorns can be played using a keyboard by selecting the notes on the keyboard and controlling the air flow with a MIDI controller like the modulation wheel or a breath controller.
You can also use a wind controller like an EWI, an Aerophone a Sylphyo or any other brand, in which case you need to use the appropriate controller menu in the MIDI section.
If you load multiple instruments at the same time, it will play unisons exactly at the same time.
We added some smart features that first can change the timbre of the instruments, transpose everything by a fixed interval and also act on the MIDI performance.
For example, you can have all 6 instruments with a different transposition value play the same C minor scale, so no matter what you play on the keyboard, it will sound in key.
VHorns Brass Section comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 3 (requires v3.1.6 or later).
We provide it for free with every library that you buy, you don't need to buy an expensive sampler to use our products. It works on Mac (10.14 or later intel or arm processor) and PC (windows 10 or later), in standalone or as a plugin (VST / VST3 / AU / AAX ) and in 64 bits only. You can find more info about it here.
UVI Workstation v3.0.18 is required for the library to function properly, the VHorns will not work on windows XP, or OSX 10.6, it will not work on a receptor either.
412Mb compressed in lossless flac format (180 for both Trumpets, 107 for both Flugelhorns and 122 for both trombones).
We use the iLok system to protect our products and you can choose to register your license to your computer or to an iLok dongle.
If you decide to use an iLok dongle, both V1 and V2 are compatible with our products.
You can activate your license on up to 3 computers or iLok dongles at the same time and you can deactivate one and activate another as many times as you want.
Once your order is complete, you will be provided with a serial number.
You will then be able to register it to your iLok account from our website on this page (you need to be logged in to access this page). The whole process is described in the FAQ (instructions + screencast).
