THE BEST OF BRITISH BRASS

From collieries through to jazz clubs, amongst the hundreds of pit bands at the Royal Albert Hall Proms, through to symphonic concerts and countless chamber spaces, the British Brass tradition runs through our country and culture like spinal fluid. Whilst there are many great orchestras around the world, there's just something about British brass that keeps composers coming back. It is the rare combination of the colliery, jazz, West End and classical traditions that produce this melting pot of rarefied individuals.


GUIs

The Overview Panel

This is the main interface for melodic instruments. Its default view displays all available playing techniques, has a simple microphone mixer and includes the main feature controllers.

General Controls Panel

This view allows further in-depth control of the instrument, showing all available signals and feature controllers, as well as the ability to purge techniques from memory to reduce system usage.

The Ostinatum

In this view you can add notes to a pattern sequencer, select which key it triggers on and then play for instant ostinato creation. It’s like an arpeggiator on a synthesiser.
