Horns of the Deep

CineBrass Horns of the Deep is an extension of our CineBrass family also recorded at MGM Studios. Consisting of 3 Tubas and 3 Euphonium in unison, it is a simple, warm low brass library. It can be a smooth, sonorous alternative timbre to French Horns, and it can provide warmth and depth in unison with the Trombone section.

Low Brass Chorale - CineBrass Pro Trombones & Horns of the Deep

Chase - You can hear HOTD doubling the brass from 0:00 - 0:14, 0:23 - 0:29, and again from 0:38 - end.  From 0:43 to the end they play the melody. 


CineBrass Horns of the Deep is 3 Tubas and 3 Euphonium performing in unison.  The UI features the familiar CineSymphony mixer, microphone positions, EQ, panning, and reverb. 

The 2 green key switches are for doubled and tripled staccato notes as seen in other CineSymphony libraries. 

The Mapping Tab allows full customisation of the articulations.  By default, the sustain pedal plays monophonic legato transitions.  The mod wheel adjusts the dynamics.  Without the sustain pedal, velocity controls the dynamics of staccato samples.  Also by default, the ACCENT OVERLAY is on to provide an accent to the beginning of legato passages.  ACCENTED LEGATO is also on to provide an accent on all subsequent notes within a legato passage.  In this case, the velocity threshold that must be met is 100.  You may turn these features off and adjust the overlay volume.  


The Settings Tab provides LEGATO and DYNAMICS control.  Here you may turn off legato for chordal playing.  


The Tubas and Euphonium performed just to the right of the typical placement of the French Horn platform, still left of center.  This position allows for a nice stereo pairing with the Trombone section that typically sits to the right.
