                                 Marching Band Horn for Kontakt 4 (or better) 

  The exact name of this instrument is unknown. It uses a French horn mouthpiece and the range is a little lower than a trumpet and a little higher than a trombone. To make most of the instruments in this set I played single notes and resynthesized them to create multi-samples. In all cases the resulting tone is still very brassy and close to the natural one

  Some samples are time stretched so this library is not meant to perfectly emulate the real instrument. It's a simple library without velocity layers or alternate samples but it is great for adding a horn flavor and also providing a wider range of uses, a good way to add brassy sounds to your compositions at a very low cost. The sounds range from smooth and mellow to hard hitting and growling, from staccatos and stabs to sustained pads.

  In the full version, the programs are in 2 main folders, "01 Natural" and "02 Transformed". The programs
in the first folder play the samples as they are except for the added Kontakt reverb. The second folder
contains instruments made with Kontakt's tone or time machines engines. The "01 Natural" folder contains
38 single instruments, 6 combis and 6 multis. The "02 Transformed" folder contains 13 single instruments
and 7 multis. Two scripts are included.

  The demo has 7 instruments in the "01 Natural" folder and 1 instrument and 1 multi in the "02 Transformed"
folder.

  Soundfont format added, note that this version is simpler than the Kontakt 4 version as Kontakt offers many tools that cannot be duplicated in a soundfont. All the samples are the same in both versions, but the soundfont does not have any combis, multis, scripts and various playback engines.

  So, for instance, the above video features those sounds specific to the Kontakt 4 version, sounds that are not in the soundfont version even if both use all the same samples.

  For more info, view or download the PDF doc HERE.  Download the demo soundfont HERE.

  Those who bought the Kontakt version before February 9, 2013 can get the soundfont for free on request by emailing me!

  Here's an excerpt from a comment made on Google Play about the Caustic 2 version of the MBH:
 "These horns are perfect for the type of songs that I create. I've used them as a main foreground piece, but I've also found them to be invaluable as the perfect background filler that really just rounds out and complete my tracks."

  The complete comment can be read HERE. Note that sonically speaking, the soundfont version is identical to the Caustic 2 version and the Kontakt version offers even more.
