BRASS: go beyond sampling

There is nothing original in noticing that the center of musical creation has switched to
the computer platform during the last decades.

The evolution of composition modes associated with software sequencers and hard disk recordings, along with virtual instruments and effects, have undeniably had an impact on the nature of musical creation.

The musical genres particularly suited for computer creation, those using loops or electronic sounds and processing, have seen a large and significant growth.

_Product description

The Arturia BRASS 2.0 emulates a trumpet, a trombone and a saxophone. All the characteristics of the real instruments have been analyzed and modeled through extensive research at world-renowned IRCAM Institute. Arturia has partnered with this highly skilled team of researchers to bring this groundbreaking technology to the musician, in the form of a software instrument. BRASS is an extremely expressive, flexible and controllable instrument, and thus a fantastic alternative to loops or music libraries.
