The sound of a tight, modern horn section, SESSION HORNS is aimed at a variety of contemporary genres. Made up of a trombone, a tenor sax and two trumpets, the ensemble was multi-sampled in the highest possible quality using renowned session musicians.
Play the whole four-piece section or divide into classic subsections, playing only two trumpets, or just sax and trombone, for example.
As well as sampling a wide range of articulations,
e-instruments sampled all possible note transitions from all four instruments. These come to play in Legato mode – play melodies and SESSION HORNS automatically handles the note transitions, smoothing the melodies you play and adding a new depth of expression and authenticity.
SESSION HORNS is the express route to authentic horns for producers of any ability. The unique Smart Voice Split automatically allocates each note of a chord to the corresponding brass instrument, just as an arranger would.
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.
