While not the biggest, baddest, wettest brass library out there, Adventure Brass accomplishes what we initially set out to do; to create an instrument that is first and foremost, fun to play. Second, and very much like Soaring Strings, we sought to really limit the controls needed to achieve a believable brass line. Just your keys and the modwheel. We’ve also included an adjustable “Humanization” feature, which automatically staggers the starts and ends of individual notes to help enhance a quantized passage. Third, we recorded medium-sized sections that would treat well to both unison and harmonic passages with believable transparency. Except the Tuba — I think we can all agree one of those is enough. Last but not least, to get that intangible little somethin’ — why not record in Los Angeles; a town with some experience performing and recording for film and television.
