Arturia releases Brass!

After three years of research, lots of hard work, and a load of anticipation, it is finally here. BRASS is being boxed up and shipped out. Thanks to BRASS software, the somewhat exclusive world of those with access to real brass instruments in musical compositions has opened its doors to everyone. Whether you operate from a large studio or are accustomed to playing in a home setting, BRASS brings playable, realistic trumpets, trombones, and saxophones to your fingertips.

BRASS is a new kind of virtual instrument: a software recreation of the trumpet, saxophone, and trombone. This software allows you to play instruments like a professional performer would do: same control, flexibility, and expressiveness (without the years of training it takes to do so). It gives you instant and constant creation. Brass is so dynamic and easy-to-use that you will never go back to flat sampled riff libraries ever again.
