The CineSymphony libraries I have worked with so far all feature an up-front sound that emphasizes the body of the sound, rather than the grain and texture, making it easy to cut through a mix.

This is where you will find the fully sampled versions of the solo trumpet, solo french horn, solo trombone and solo tuba. But this was the only less than intuitive part of the library for me and it was no longer an issue once I got my template setup.
This means the library is less well-suited to close-position harmonic writing that frequently goes between small intervals and unisons.
I really appreciated how things were really laid out to get things done. It was a real eye-opener to see just how much more quickly I could write brass parts with it than I ever could with my previous libraries. This includes the default mapping where velocity switching is used to go between different length short note samples and that holding down the sustain pedal activates sustain samples with legato transitions. Whether you buy both CORE and PRO as a bundle or individually, they install to separate folders by default and the patch names reflect this.
While the CineBrass Bundle features multiple ensemble sizes from soloist to massive, but only one soloist is included for each instrument.
The solo trumpet and solo horn are each great for soaring lines especially with additional reverb while still having power in the low end, too.
The CineSymphony libraries I have worked with so far all feature an up-front sound that emphasizes the body of the sound, rather than the grain and texture, making it easy to cut through a mix. The tuba and trombones layer wonderfully together, forming a great low end. Note, this was the only patch I had this problem with and I hope it gets fixed in a future update.
CineBrass + CineWinds COMPLETE Bundle
Legato is used to designate both legato and normal sustains. If your brass harmony writing frequently goes between solo voicing and unisons you might look at libraries like Dimension Brass with multiple solo players. This was all a little counter-intuitive to me on my first day and I wish the documentation or other reviews had laid it out for me the way I have for you.
Welcome to SoundBytes Magazinea free online magazine devoted to the subject of computer sound and music production.
But the sound itself is holds its own against its contemporary rivals each of which has its own style and blows away older libraries. Search through our magazine:. CBP stopped and fluttered, triad chords, seventh chords, rips, fff sustains and shorts. However, there are certain differences and similarities worth pointing out on a conceptual level and some of my thoughts on the acoustic signature of each range based on how other sections were recorded.
At the start of the review I mentioned that the bundle works better as a whole than it does when separated and that starts to make sense when you look at the instruments. We hope you’ll enjoy reading what you find here and visit this site on a regular basis.
While all the main articulations for a given instrument are normally found in an bundld patch, some also have additional patches for mutes or flutters, etc.
Many of the same things I enjoyed about working with CineStrings CORE are true here as well in regards to the main articulations patch for each instrument or section.
Keep this in mind if when writing trumpet parts if you actually want them to be played later on. Here we find Close, Room and Surround mic positions as well as the Full Mix created from the other sections. In addition while I praised the way dynamic were handled in the majority of the patches, the exception was the short notes mapping for the solo tuba.

The only solos in CineBrass CORE are a different set of legato recordings for the solo trumpet and solo horn cinberass featured in CineBrass PRO — but these have a narrower dynamic range that basically feels like it goes pianissimo to mezzo piano. The situation is much less clear-cut for ensembles. It can do both huge ensembles and detailed solos and the legato transitions and dynamics are both handled very well.
For more reasons, keep reading. I found the default mapping very quick and easy to use, but it was equally quick and easy to change from the defaults using the simple Mapping tab or to configure dynamic and legato settings in the Settings tab.
The sound is great — balanced and full with lots of dynamic range. You may also be interested in: On a sonic level, all of the above libraries were recorded in such a way that they sound very, very different from CineBrass — except Hollywood Orchestral Brass.
The CineBrass bundle allowed me to ubndle brass parts quickly, with fewer tracks and better sound quality than my previous generation brass libraries like EastWest Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra and the original ProjectSAM libraries. Note that the lowest trumpet sample has been mapped to extend downward to allow performance of the trumpet below the normally playable range the same way that the string harmonic for the basses were in CineStrings CORE.
