    Hey All, So I have the excellent Synchron Brass, that is an amazing library, and the Timbre adjust, really does bring the samples to life more than ever. However, the ONE thing I miss , is the faster legato on the Ensemble Patches- You really notice it after having on the solo instruments -...

    Orchestrating Trombones and Horns

    After experimenting a lot with Brass orchestration in hybrid arrangements, I have the feeling that the brass section fits more with the rest of the other instruments if I let the Bones and the Horns play every 2nd note. If you have a simple A Minor Triade The Horns get the E and A and the Bones...

    CineBrass matching String Library

    What Libraries do blend well with the tonal comour of Cinebrass ? Cinematic Studio String seems a bit to warm. Cine Strings might be an option since it was developed by the same company as CineBrass.

    Why aren't Trumpets used anymore ?

    I know they still get used in Scores. But if you compare the Brass Section to the Strings Section, the Trumpet plays very rarely in most of todays film score while the violin plays everywhere.
