Theultimate virtual horn and sax band! With 13 deep-sampled solo instruments –trumpets, trombones, and saxes – this library has everything you need to produceincredible jazz, pop, funk, swing and big band music. Plus with new SmartVoicing ensembles, writing full harmonies and arrangements has never beeneasier.
Welcometo version 2 of Straight Ahead Jazz Horns! This library is designed to give youall the tools to create realistic solo and ensemble brass band mockups, withthirteen (!!) deeply-sampled instruments and over 75,000 samples total.Everything from the recordings to the performance scripting and multis has beencreated with authenticity and respect for jazz genres, but the library isequally suitable for big band/swing, pop, R&B, funk, and much more.
SAJazz Horns was originally released by Straight Ahead Samples, who we havecollaborated with to present this newly revised virtual instrument. Though thesample pool is largely the same as version 1 (with some additional tweaks andclean-up), the script and interface has been totally redone, including therealization of Smart Voicing – described in more detail below.
Theresult of our nearly year-long collaboration is an even more playable,realistic, and customizable virtual instrument that offers both excellent soloinstruments and some of the most powerful ensemble writing tools ever developed,powered by our new Smart Voicing technology. We’re sure this library will find aplace in your template and we can’t wait to hear what you do with it!
Ourgamechanging new Smart Voicing technology makes it incredibly easy to writefully-voiced harmonies and ensemble arrangements with a minimum of effort.Here’s how it works in a nutshell:
1.Load an ensemble multi, such as 4 Trumpets or 5 Saxes.
2.In the left-hand, play or write a chord. (The engine can understand hundreds ofleft hand voicings and inversions!)
3.In the right-hand, play a melody. (Monophonic.)
Now,with each note of the melody, Smart Voicing will create a full voice-leadharmony based on the chord you play, the melody note, and the full context ofthe melody you’re playing. To do this, we created a database of thousands ofpossible ensemble voicings which are also displayed as sheet music notation inreal-time! There are multiple voicing styles available too, from simple triads,unisons, and octaves to jazzier close, drop, and open voicings These vary basedon ensemble type, and we covered a large range of idiomatic jazz configurations.Additionally in the future, we will be adding many more!
WithSmart Voicing, you don’t need to know how to write intricate jazz parts, orlaboriously copy MIDI data across many solo instrument tracks. Just play basicchords and a melody! Keyswitches, velocity and other MIDI CCs also workperfectly, and each solo instrument can use its full set of playing techniquesincluding legato and glissando transitions.
