And it doesn’t stop there…

Fairy Horn

Sample Logic and System Blue are proud to announce Fanfare, a groundbreaking Kontakt Player virtual instrument pairing the DCI World-Champion Blue Devils marching brass with the award-winning sound design of Sample Logic. From traditional marching brass to full-blown cinematic soundscapes, Fanfare delivers the definitive marching brass library for educators and arrangers, and an extraordinarily versatile and inspiring construction toolkit for film, TV, game composers, producers, and electronic musicians.

Fanfare features a broad array of samples recorded by Leslie Ann Jones on The Scoring Stage at Skywalker Sound (Lucasfilm Ltd Company) and on the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium (home of the Buffalo Bills) by Grammy® Award winner Frank Dorritie. The indoor recordings were done at close, mid, and far microphone placements, while the outdoor recordings were captured with state of the art stadium surround sound recording techniques. The resulting sonic textures range from full stadium ambience to an “in-your-face" 85-piece brass ensemble, with all of the recordings capturing The Blue Devils’ signature sound of amazingly inventive chords, avant-garde clusters, swells, and organic brass effects.


And it doesn´t stop there…Fanfare not only boasts the finest traditional marching brass samples available, but extends the library’s sonic reach via Sample Logic’s signature “blurring the line between music and sound design” programming techniques. Starting with the traditional brass recordings, an entire library of morphed “cinematic” multi-sampled instruments was created, putting not only world-class marching brass at your fingertips, but also an inspiring array of melodics, pads, leads, stingers, impacts, transitions, atmospheres, and articulated rhythms–all organized into easily accessible, production-ready presets.



  • VentileA complete collection of traditional marching brass instruments (trumpets, mellophones, euphoniums, tubas, and trombones) recorded with multiple round robins, multiple dynamics, and up to five microphone placements
  • Scoring Stage: Individual instruments and sectionals
  • Stadium: Large sections and full ensemble
  • A complete collection of evocative morphed cinematic instruments and rhythms
  • Atmospheric/ambient soundscapes and stinger construction kits
  • Arpeggiator/Arpeggigater rhythmic instruments
  • Swipes, scrapes, impacts, and reverse transitional effects
  • Performance-ready multis (playable interactive preset templates made from multiple instruments)


Teaming up with Avid
Sample Logic and AVID have teamed up to integrate Fanfare for seamlessly into Sibelius 7. Fanfare also fully integreates with Finale 2011. 

Sample the future: The Arpeggigater
We are proud to introduce a powerful addition to Fanfare… The Arpeggigater

The Arpeggigater allows users to design custom gate sequencer patterns with effects simultaneously. This extremely powerful addition allows for infinite sound-sculpting results

Swirling the space: The Spinner
All of Fanfare’s multi-mic instruments include a sound-swirling spinner effect. This effect allows users to not only change the listeners perspective around the concert hall (Left to Right and Close to Far), but also allows you to automate the listening position swirling the sound with your own custom patterns.

Amazona sehr gutFazit

Fanfare schafft die goldene Mitte aus musikalischem Werkzeug und moderner Sounddesign-Waffe. Die Multis finde ich sensationell, auch die Bläser selbst überzeugen und helfen schnell und unkompliziert, um an brauchbare Ergebnisse zu kommen. Lediglich die vielen Morphing-Ordner nerven. Klingt vielleicht undankbar bei soviel Sorgfalt. Das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis ist aber phänomenal! Ich bin zwar ein Fan von großen Librarys wie Hollywood Brass, aber ich kombiniere auch sehr gerne. Und bin auch dankbar um jeden Sound, den ich schnell laden und einbauen kann. All das ist mit Fanfare möglich. Anhören und testen. Der Preis ist dafür mehr als nur fair!

Amazona Testbericht Fanfare

Flag DE 15.3.2012 LogoAuszug: Fazit

Die beiden Libraries von Sample Logic bieten sehr gutes, inspirierendes Soundmaterial, sind aber keine Universallösungen. Sie sind ja bereits durch die Fokussierung auf Bläser (Fanfare) bzw. eine "Marschkappelle" (Rumble) spezialisiert, doch erfüllen sie sicher auch nicht alle Wünsche, die solche Libraries erfüllen könnten, sondern tragen eher eine typische "Sample Logic" Handschrift, wodurch sie sich auch als Ergänzung und "speziell" klingende Alternative zu vergleichbaren Libraries empfehlen. Der Sound an sich gefällt mir persönlich gut, die Aufnahmen klingen für meinen Geschmack natürlich. - es ist aber schwer, über solche Nuancen zu reden, hier sollten Sie sich in den Beispielen von Sample Logic oder meinem Screencast einen eigenen Eindruck verschaffen. Das Spektrum reicht von den "puren" Einzelklängen bis hin zu gekonnt verfremdeten, "cineastischen" Sounds, "dazwischen" gibt es aber durchaus auch Lücken. So ist beispielsweise die Auswahl der aufgenommenen Akkorde des Blasorchesters limitiert (Fanfare) und viele der interessanten Drumloops (Rumble) liegen als "verfremdbarer" Loop, nicht aber als Midi-Multiinstrument mit einzelnen Midispuren vor. Dafür gibt es andererseits viele vorkonfigurierte Instrumente, Multis und User-Tools/Skripte in den Instrumenten, mit denen sehr schnell und effektiv Filmmusik komponiert werden kann, die eine bestimmte Ästhetik erfüllt. Man kommt mit diesen Librarys eben im Gegenzug auch manchmal fixer ans Ziel als mit manchen Libraries, in denen man mehr Details justieren kann, aber tendenziell auch alles von Grund auf selbst aufbauen soll. Auch für Freunde von Filmmusik moderner Thriller oder allgemein dem "grosses Kino" ist in diesen Libraries etwas dabei.
