Great Sound

Great Sound

Sometimes dynamite horns in top audio quality can make all the difference. Session Horns is a tight and modern, multi-sampled ensemble of renowned session musicians, and includes a wide variety of creative mix and mastering presets to inspire your sound images.

 

Smart Voice Split

Smart Voice Split

Create stunning horn arrangements with your keyboard in no time. Smart Voice Split automatically allocates each note of a chord to the corresponding brass instruments, just as an arranger would do.
Press two keys, and the instruments split into lower and higher ranges – trumpets at the top and sax and trombone at the bottom. Play three keys, and the trombone is automatically mapped to the lowest note. Add a fourth note below, and the trombone takes up the new bass note, while the higher pitches are allocated to the rest of the ensemble.

 

Animator

Animator

A detailed sample base was used to construct over 170 ultra-flexible, playable phrases – licks, stabs and progressions, covering a wide spectrum of genres and moods.
Play a chord with one hand and select phrases with the other to create instant horn accompaniments from funk and pop to reggae, neo-soul, and indie. All phrases are easy to adapt to the track you’re working on, always in sync, and in perfect harmony.

 

Powerful Articulations

Powerful Articulations

Woodwind and brass are among the most dynamic and expressive acoustic instruments, and the interaction between the individual players of a horn section can be very complex both harmonically and rhythmically.
Session Horns does not stop with true legato transitions, but also features a range of expressive horn articulations, such as Staccatissimo, Shake, Doits and different Falls.
