The second instalment in the Hollywood series, Hollywood Brass is an epic achievement, once again combining the talents of Producers Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix and Thomas Bergersen and Sound Engineer Shawn Murphy.

Recorded in EastWest Studio 1, widely regarded as the "best brass recording room in the entire world", with 5 true mic positions in 24-bit, Hollywood Brass is designed to work seamlessly with Hollywood Strings (and the upcoming Woodwinds and Percussion).

Hollywood Brass Screen

The boxed/shipping version will be delivered on an external USB 3.0 hard drive for fast and easy installation!

Running on the next generation and completely revamped engine, PLAY 3, Hollywood Brass will run flawlessly on your system along with Hollywood Strings. This is also exciting news for current Hollywood Strings users, as PLAY 3 and the new Hollywood Strings program update are free to all users.

Hollywood Brass Diamond ships on a hard drive and is approximately 150 gigabytes of pure Hollywood magic in 24-bit. A world class group of brass artists, worthy of a Shawn Murphy recording, was gathered for this brass sampling marathon which lasted for 21 straight 11 hour days followed by a year of post production.

Hollywood Brass gives you complete control over the players and includes:
Solo Trumpet, 2 Trumpets, 3 Trumpets, Solo French Horn, 2 French Horns, 6 French Horns, Solo Trombone, 2 Tenor + 1 Bass Trombone, Solo Tuba, Solo Cimbasso and a low brass section consisting of : 2 Tenor Bones, 1 Bass trombone, 1 tuba and 1 cimbasso

But most importantly check out our articulations chart ("more infos") which really shows how far we went to create the ultimate orchestral brass library. No Shortcuts here!

Hollywood Brass also includes new brass reverb impulses taken from the smash hit convolution reverb Quantum Leap SPACES.

EastWest hat die perfekte Balance gefunden, wie man komplexe Sounds, hohe Qualitätstandards und einfachste Bedienbarkeit auf einen Nenner bringt. Daher sind sie mit diesem hochwertigen Produkt auch eine der führenden Hersteller auf dem Markt. Stets nah am Hollywood-Sound und Zeitgeist, wobei flüssiger Workflow den Engine und Library bieten nicht zu vergessen sind. In einer professionellen Umgebung, einer kreativen Produktion, bei der man sich auf die Arbeit konzentrieren will und der "Moment" zählt, braucht man genau das: Werkzeug, das intuitiv zu bedienen ist, grandios klingt und einfach rennt.

Hollywood Brass klingt ohne Einarbeitungszeit schon genial und mit ein wenig Gespür und musikalischem Verständnis kann man noch zusätzlich klanglich viel herausholen
