Evolving Atmospheric Pads and Pulses with a rich Brassy Core

DRONAR Brass is the seventh module in Gothic Instruments’ hugely popular atmosphere creation series for Kontakt and brings a distinctively different sound to the product line. Despite beginning its journey as recordings of a concert brass group in an English church hall, with DRONAR Brass what you DON’T get is a brass sample library. What you DO get are organic, evolving atmospheric pads and pulses with a rich brassy core that can convey a mood of peace as well as heroism.

The audio for the DRONAR Brass module was recorded with a concert brass group in a church hall in Northern England, after which it was heavily processed and looped. Once fed into DRONAR's glorious award-winning engine, and animated by its independent arpeggiators and modulations these textures take on a further dramatic new life. The result is organic, evolving atmospheric pads, textures and pulses with a rich brassy core - a futuristic world of brass, if you will.

How Does It Work?

DRONAR creates mind-expanding atmospheres from a very small number of notes played. It automatically spreads out the chord in the mid-range, adds a root bass note, a high note and then adds evolving sound effects. 8 simultaneous different sounds are then animated with LFOs, a rhythm sequencer and arpeggiators to bring them to life. The results are rich and dramatic.

System FAQs
System FAQs - Dronar Brass

Q: Can I use the FREE Kontakt Player for playing libraries in "Kontakt format"?

Q: When trying to "Add Library" my Kontakt shows a message "No Library found"
A: Then this is not a encrypted Kontakt library, but an open Kontakt format. You can find additional hints for Kontakt Libraries in that Sounds & Gear Video
