Product Description for the AMG Kick Ass Brass!
A brass arranger's dream machine - 8 Parts per instance
Kick-Ass Brass! is made to be used. It's not one of those virtual instruments that sound flashy but don't perform. The great thing about Kick-Ass Brass! is that whilst it will sound great in anyone's hands, a skilled brass arranger will really make it sing. It has all the elements an arranger needs to create a modern horn section. Each instance of KAB features 8 parts which is more than enough in most cases, but if you need more it's no problem. Add another instance and carry on. It has a very light CPU load and although obviously the sounds can take up RAM the files are actually much smaller than you'l find in many other unnecessarily bloated libraries. We also include especially small versions of many of the main, larger patches which are fine for live applications if size and load times are critical. This is a virtual instrument that performs - not a prima donna you have to be a slave to.
AMAZING sounds - the only convincing substitute for the real thing available today!
The most important thing about Kick-Ass Brass! is it's sound. Users and reviewers all agree it's 'simply stellar' and the closest thing to a real horn section available today. It's not a massive classical or orchestral library, if this is what you're after there are better alternatives out there maybe. KAB is a modern, tight, exciting horn section that will transform any modern pop, rock, R&B, soul or jazz track - in fact any track that needs standout, in-your-face, show-stopping horn sounds. Examine every note and you'll find the odd imperfection, maybe that's what's so special about Kick-Ass Brass! - it's based on real performances from a real horn section, not an idealized, tweaked-to-death version that they would never play. Who knows? The results speak for themselves though...
