Straight Ahead Jazz Horns - Available Now!

SAJazz.png

Impact Soundworks is proud to announce Straight Ahead Jazz Horns, created in collaboration with Straight Ahead Samples! This revamped library features over 75,000 samples of 13 solo brass and sax instruments perfect for jazz, funk, pop, R&B and more. Each instrument is deeply sampled with a variety of crucial techniques and ornaments, all totally customizable with our TACT system of articulation control and mapping.

We're also introducing Smart Voicing technology, the easiest and most fluid way to create fully-voiced ensemble parts to harmonize your melodies. Available in our Multi Ensembles, all you have to do is play a chord in your left hand and play a melody in your right to get authentic, hand-written harmonies voiced for your ensemble - while keeping all articulation mapping, legato, and other settings.

Smart Voicing is not only deeply customizable with different voicing and chord options, but can even be used with Kontakt's "Send MIDI to Outside World" feature, allowing you to send generated harmony MIDI data to any other plugin!
