BML Bones Volume 1 assembles a coterie of fine London players in the hall at Air Studios, regarded as one of the greatest scoring stages in the world. Spitfire is a collective of successful award winning composers and in this volume they have personally curated a broad selection of essential articulations and techniques to give you everything you would need to get up and running with this warmest deepest and at times brashest part of the brass choir.
Composers have been travelling the world over for many years now, our strings are formidable here in London alongside our woodwinds and brass. But the brass? There’s just something about our brass, maybe it’s the colliery tradition, the numerous symphony and chamber orchestras, the three major opera houses, several world class concert halls and 80+ theatre pits and buzzing film business in London alone. It leaves our horn players a cut above the rest of the world, so-much-so we’ve heard of clandestine “replacement” sessions taking place for brass under the cover of darkness for scores being recorded elsewhere..
We have recorded tenor bones and bass bones a2 (and in volume 2 you’ll get soloists, giving you 3 totally different players of each size on different instruments in different positions when played tutti) and played by some of the greatest players on the planet today.
This is a deeply sampled library with a selection of essential articulations curated by multi award winning composers and musicians. The library features multiple round robins, dynamic layers and easily usable fully functional legato with control of vibrato.
The library is presented with numerous microphone positions which you can not only mix and blend to fit the application you’re working on, but also automate for dramatic shifts in focus and depth. We have also specially commissioned 3 exclusive Jake Jackson mixes of every sample to save you time and system resources. These mixes are specially designed to work in different applications from pop to chamber to epic cinematic and by using these mixes across the BML range you can achieve total mix integrity, just as Jake would do it!
If it is even bigger sections you require we also have the Bone Phalanx range featuring 6 players really going for it, combine with Bones volume 1 for a tsunami of 10 bone players, Mahler would be proud.
