Virtual brass instrument

BRASS is a new kind of virtual instrument that faithfully reproduces the trumpet, saxophone and trombone in real time. It contains an extensive performance-based riff library which is entirely configurable and expandable. Choose, create, import and modify riffs to match your needs. You can also play the modeled instruments directly with a keyboard and other realtime controls. It's so dynamic and easy-to-use that you will never go back to flat sampled riff libraries ever again.

BRASS is based on a new kind of physical modeling technology. All of the caracteristics of the real instruments have been analyzed and modeled through extensive research at IRCAM, a world-renowned institute based in Paris. Arturia has partnered with IRCAM to bring this groundbreaking technology to your studio....

You can use the riff library and keyboard controls to trigger patterns and variations, or you can use a MIDI controller to play each instrument directly. Real time controls such as a breath controller can be used to great advantage with BRASS.

Arturia Brass v 1.1 Jul 22, 2005 Windows
This version mainly corrects 4 bugs:

In the PC installer, when choosing "SSE" choice it was installing "SSE2" version instead, which is not compatible with Athlon and P3 processors. The users on Athlon were getting a "could not find the DLL" error message. They then had to install the generic version instead which is not as optimized as the other one. In the 1.1 version, the installer has been changed so that "SSE" choice is a real SSE choice. Then users who have an Athlon processor can install it and benefit from the optimizations, too.

There is an annoying problem in version 1.0. When reloading a project in a sequencer using a saxophone of BRASS, the saxophone was not correctly initialized and its sound was bad. Moreover, BRASS could become unstable because of this problem. This issue has been corrected in 1.1 version.

On PC, when Brass 1.0 is installed in Protools, ProTools does not close correctly. Then it is not possible to restart it. This problem has been also corrected in 1.1 version.

Brass did not open in Singer Song Writer 8.0 VS (a Japanese sequencer).

Bof , pourtant je suis un inconditionnel d'Arturia , mais là c'est vraiment pas convaincant peu de réglage , à part le placement de l'instrument dans l'espace qui est redoutable d'efficacité , le son c'est bof bof , à essayer quand même , mais sans moi sur ce coup là.

J'ai juste écouté les démos MP3 et je trouve ca plutot intéressant. Evidemment c'est un synthé à utiliser en live plutot que dans un arrangement peaufiné en studio ou la on peut disposer de banques de sons échantillonnés.
Je pense aux possesseurs de controleurs à vent (EVI ou WX) qui recherchent un synthé expressif avant tout.
Le sax est moyen mais la trompette est plutot pas mal.
Je salut l'effort de faire de la synthèse en ces temps ou l'echantillon est partout !

Hello,
je suis dans l'incomprehension totale de ce plug in...
en effet , c'est tellement mauvais que je pense qu'Arturia se discrédite completement en matière de PLUGIn !
Messieurs, reveillez vous, prenez du recule, écoutez de la musique et surtout écoutez des instruments acoustiques un peu plus souvent...
Meme un son de "trumpet" sur un Moog a plus de sens parce que fait sur un Moog !
Vous allez ou là ?
et puis franchement, " BRASS est basé sur une nouvelle technologie de modélisation physique" , vous blaguez ?, une " nouvelle" technologie ?? Vous voulez dire une nouvelle manière de faire croire une énorme connerie aux gens ? c'est ça ?
Ouula, faut arretez les gars ... prenez des vacances de noel , ça va vous rafraichir...
Bon,j'exagère là, mais pas autant que ce produit .
