It includes incredible sounding multi-sampled ensemble sections recorded in the famous Studio 1 at EastWest Studios as well as stylized phrases and licks in multiple keys recorded in Studio 2. These phrases will simply blow you away with how easily they slide right into your track and cover many genres from pure pop to rock, funk, soul, and many distinctive rhythms and melodies from the Latin world.

HOLLYWOOD POP BRASS was created for one simple reason - there's just nothing else out there on the market that instantaneously gives you that fiery, punchy pop brass sound that made songs like Uptown Funk such mega-hits. The great thing about this library is that there's something for everyone - whether you want to build deep and detailed compositions with one of the world’s top horn sections, or if you just want to "plug and play" using licks and phrases that will inspire you and bring that "it" factor to your song. It's the ultimate ensemble pop/Latin brass collection that will leave you screaming, hollering, and begging for more.

HOLLYWOOD POP BRASS includes the articulations listed below. Most include multiple dynamic layers, up to 8 round-robin sample alternatives, and a variety of instrument programming options to accommodate a variety of playing styles.

 

  • Sustain: Contains different types of sustained articulations: fast, medium and long crescendos, sustain accent, crescendo and diminuendo, and "xfde" versions of instruments that use Mod Wheel (CC1) to cross-fade between dynamics. Each contains 2 dynamic layers, and use Expression (CC 11) to control loudness.
  • Short: Contains a variety of articulations that have a short duration, including marcato, stabs, staccato, and staccato repetitions. Each includes round-robin variations, use velocity-sensitivity to control dynamics and Expression (CC 11) to control overall loudness.
  • Effects: It contains instruments that feature special articulation techniques like falls and rips in various durations, as well as growls and trills. All but growls contain multiple round-robin variations.
  • Legato: Contains an instrument that will playback true legato intervals when two notes are played in a connected fashion (legato), for every interval up to and including an octave in either direction. When playing disconnected (non-legato), a sustain layer will playback.
  • MOD Combo: Contains instruments that combine multiple articulations and uses the Mod Wheel (CC 1) to select between them. A ‘VS’ (velocity-sensitive) instrument named HPB Shorts VS MOD.ewi alternatively uses velocity to select between articulations and Mod Wheel (CC 1) to determine dynamics.
  • Phrases: It contains instruments that feature phrases and sub-phrases in various tempos that fit perfectly in the world of pop brass. Each was recorded with multiple transpositions, and are mapped across the virtual keyboard on their respective root note positions for use in a variety of key signatures.
  • Licks: Contains instruments that feature short licks (or "motifs") performed at 120 bpm that fall into 1 of 6 chord types. The position of the Mod Wheel determines which of the chord types will playback. Each lick has 2 round-robin variations and is mapped to the key that corresponds to the respective root note position of each chord type.
  • Keyswitch: Keyswitch contains instruments that combine multiple articulations into a single instrument and uses key switches to activate the desired articulation.
