German sample library developer Orchestral Tools have announced a new virtual instrument collection, created in collaboration with composer and producer Tom Holkenborg, Junkie XL Brass.
Holkenborg’s film credits include Mad Max Fury Road, Deadpool, and the forthcoming James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez project, Alita: Battle Angel.
“I needed to build my own sample libraries,” notes Holkenborg, “and that’s why we’ve gotten to the point of creating my own brass library together with Orchestral Tools.”
Junkie XL Brass was recorded at the Teldex Scoring Stage in Berlin. Classic brass instruments – trumpets, French horns, trombones and tubas – were sampled in many different section sizes, with a dynamic range from pianississimo to fortississimo.
Junkie XL Brass is scheduled for release in late 2019 and will be available exclusively for the new Orchestral Tools Sampler Platform. The platform is capable of customizing every articulation to the user’s individual needs.
