Native Instruments has introduced Session Horns, a new Kontakt instrument that features the sound of a four-piece horn section. It’s designed to allow producers of all levels access to high quality horns.
Session Horns is based on four meticulously sampled instruments: a tenor sax, a trombone and two trumpets, playable either as a standard instrument or using the included musical phrases. All instruments were sampled in a range of articulations, including specific samples to reproduce the authentic sound of typical legato horn lines. What’s more, the Smart Voice Split automatically allocates each note of a chord to the corresponding brass instrument, just as an arranger would, according to the folks at Native Instruments.
Session Horns is an US$119 Kontakt Instrument that can be used either in Kontakt 5 or the free Kontakt 5 Player. For more info go to www.native-instruments.com/Sessionhorns .
