Kirk Hunter Studios Kinetic Brass Plus KONTAKT
Kinetic Brass Plus
Create Sophisticated Patterns with No Musical Theory Training Necessary.
With Kinetic, you get the entire brass section in one instrument (Trumpets, French Horns, Trombones and Tubas). You get a separate timeline for each section. Each timeline contains 64 note or rest events and can be divided into up to 4 “regions”. And you can have each timeline play a different pattern, section or articulation when you hold down a single note or chord!
Choose from 30 fun-to-play presets in Kinetic Brass Original, or 41 new and different patterns in Kinetic Brass Plus. And if you really want to get wild, you can choose any of the presets for each section separately. That means you could have the Trumpets playing the one preset, the French Horns play another, the Trombones play yet another, and the Tubas play event another… ALL AT THE SAME TIME! And of course, any or all of these patterns can be edited.
Kinetic Brass Original – You can also load “perpetual motion” patterns that include very useful accents. These accents can be based on every 2, 3, 4 or 6 events. Additionally, you can set whether the accents are subtle, moderate or dynamic.
Kinetic Brass contains 4 Trumpets, 4 French Horns, 4 Trombones, and 2 Tubas. Included articulations are Staccato, Marcato, and Portato. And each articulation can be “tightened or broadened”.
Recorded at the First Presbyterian Church, Santa Monica where A-list Los Angeles-based orchestras record and perform.
