Very realistic sound.

Martin955, 02.07.2013
Very happy with the sound!
I got this for adding to a few rock songs I had in Pro Tools. Kind of Waits/Springsteen/Van Morrison type of genre, and it worked really well!
I think it's very difficult to tell the difference between these virtual instruments and real brass instruments.
It's quite easy to use in Pro Tools although my MacBook had only 2GB RAM and so it was very hard on the computer. I upgraded to 4GB which was fine.
You can mix different layers of trombones, sax and trumpets and so long as your midi keyboard has good response to how heavy you hit the keys, there's a great variety of how strong a note can be played.

Sun and lots of shade

Paul264, 10.11.2012
I was already aware of the fact that it is only a stripped down version, but this does not make much desire for more.

The sound of the instruments is very strong. I like the brass instruments quite well (especially the wing horns), before that the woodblocks are average (Alto and Tenorsax) to rather mies (Sopransax and clarinet). Especially the latter can not be used solistically even for a layout. Since I prefer the sounds from my Roland SX700, which are more tolerable.

The mixing of the sounds to sections is childlike and logical, but unfortunately only limited use. If one mixes a brass replacement with four instruments and then plays the four-voice, then 16 instruments sound. And the whole thing often with an audible chorus / flanging effect that does not sound natural. If you use the sentences one by one, you get good results, but it is tedious. The section samples of the large version are missing.

The games are limited to five (sound repeat, trill, doit, fall and attack). I miss painfully slates. The "VeloFade" is unfortunately not suitable for it.

So the product can be used to a limited extent. For big-band sound, it's okay. Solistically, I would not use any of the sounds. NI goes with the Session Horns a very interesting way, which I will test times.
