Hyperion Brass Elements - A universal brass ensemble library for everyone
Hyperion Brass Elements is a universal brass ensemble library built for everyone. It was recorded with uncompromising engineering precision and then hand-edited and carefully balanced to achieve a new benchmark in quality and playability. Soundiron set out to strike the ideal balance between polished refinement and natural humanism, for maximum creative flexibility, advanced utility and acoustic realism. This symphonic brass library is a robust musical production workhorse that will serve you well, whether you’re a working composer, student, producer, songwriter, teacher, arranger, band, sound designer, or are just curious about creating your own music.
It’s optimized for instant gratification, from the moment you load it up. Its intuitive modular design and content symmetry make it easy to use for the beginner. Yet its robust articulation list, dynamic capabilities, time-saving articulation management tools, deeply customizable acoustics and professional feature set make it exceptionally powerful in the hands of the seasoned composer.
The Hyperion Brass ensemble has a forward and robust sound unlike any other. It has a strong tone and wide dynamic range that can be shaped to fit any genre or style. Soundiron recorded their brass ensemble sections up close in the historic Studio A at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA. They've also equipped the interface with plenty of spatialization, environment simulation and positioning controls and options to let you dial in the sound and character you need.
Hyperion Brass Elements includes 10 combo ensemble presets and 6 Master and True-Legato section presets for 6 Trumpets, 4 Tenor Trombones, 4 French Horns, 3 Euphoniums, 3 Bass Trombones, and 3 Tubas. The Master presets include a broad selection of fundamental articulations, each with their own range of customizable real-time performance options, key-switch and mapping options and performance tools. These master presets allow you to blend and switch effortlessly between vibrato and non-vibrato sustains, a variety of shorts and naturally dynamic tempo-based expressions.
Soundiron's Easy-Lead feature puts creative control right at your fingertips, allowing you to instantly go from tight staccatos to dynamic sustains without needing to keyswitch between articulations. Simply play quick notes for tight staccatos or hold down the keys for long, dynamic sustains. This performance feature is great for fast playability, allowing you to get ideas out quickly and work within a full orchestral mix.
The Sustain articulations weave together multi-dynamic expressive vibrato and clean non-vibrato sustains, recorded naturally in piano, mezzo-forte and forte dynamics. The special True-Legato presets feature speed control that adapts to the way you play when you want it to, yet gives you total hands-on control when you need it. Soundiron's True-Legato system lets you craft startlingly realistic and seamless performances, whether you’re playing quick runs or long, smooth powerful melodies.
The Short articulations include staccatos and staccatissimos each with two speeds, loose and tight. The Multi-Staccato articulation features an option for double-tongue or triple-tongue. Each short articulation provides 4 round-robin variations per note and auto-speed switching, making it easy to humanize your arrangements and find the perfect emotive expression for any musical moment.
