Muted & Epic Brass Ensembles
Introducing the newest addition to Vienna’s revolutionary “Dimension” series of ensemble instrument collections. Vienna Dimension Brass II complements the original Vienna Dimension Brass I with muted ensembles and a brand new Wagner tuba ensemble.
- Trumpet ensemble (4 muted trumpets in Bb)
- Horn ensemble* (4 muted French horns)
- Trombone ensemble (4 muted tenor trombones)
- Wagner tuba ensemble (4 players)
In addition to the three muted brass ensembles of four players each (trumpets, trombones, French horns) this Vienna Instruments Collection includes a unique ensemble of four Wagner tubas that you’ll scarcely find on any other library!
As with Vienna Dimension Brass I, the players of these ensembles were recorded in groups using dedicated microphones for each of the four players, resulting in a homogenous sound while still allowing direct (individual) access to each voice.
While the Standard Library includes all basic articulations, the Full Library now offers an additional set of all-new articulations for the horn, trumpet and trombone ensembles, providing even more variations, nuances and possibilities of expression. The new performance glissandos were recorded up to a tritone for the trombones and even up to an octave for the trumpets and French horns. They can be seamlessly combined with the legato performances. The new medium sustained notes are available in six dynamic layers and are not looped, providing the instruments’ all-natural decay. You may crossfade between different dynamic layers by using a continuous controller in order to get natural and seamless transitions – from a mellow tone color to an assertive, stinging brass sound and back. What’s more, the Vienna team added recorded crescendos and diminuendos of one, two, and three seconds length that are absolutely crucial when it comes to ultra-realistic brass performances. Last but not least, the new long portatos of approximately half a second in length fill the gap between the existing short and long sustained notes.
