Marching Band Horn for Kontakt 4
      #1031047 - 29/01/13 03:54 PM
Les Productions Zvon has released Marching Band Horn, a new sample set for Kontakt 4.
The exact name of this instrument is unknown. It uses a French horn mouthpiece and the range is a little lower than a trumpet and a little higher than a trombone. Most of the instruments in this set are made from resynthesized single notes to create multi-samples. In all cases the resulting tone is still very brassy and close to the natural one.

Some samples are time stretched so this library is not meant to perfectly emulate the real instrument. It's a simple library without velocity layers or alternate samples but it is great for adding a horn flavor and also providing a wider range of uses, a good way to add unique brassy sounds to your compositions. The sounds range from smooth and mellow to hard hitting and growling, from staccatos
and stabs to sustained pads.

The full version has 41 single instruments, 6 combis and 13 multis. This set is for the full version of Native Instruments
Kontakt 4 or better, not the Kontakt Player.

It costs $2.49 (download only) and there's a free dowloadable demo of 8 single instruments and 1 multi.

Soundfont version added. It has exactly the same samples as the Kontakt 4 version but of course it does not have the combis, multis and processing that K4 offers. So, for instance, the above video features those sounds specific to the Kontakt 4 version, sounds that are not in the soundfont version even if both use all the same samples.

It sells for $1.30 or it can be bundled it with the Kontakt version for $3.25. Those who bought the Kontakt version before February 9, 2013 can get the soundfont for free on request by emailing me!
