Scroll Prev Top Next More

Glory Days - Big Band Horns is an extensive collection of Brass and Saxophone instruments, providing composers and arrangers with a comprehensive set of tools for all kinds of popular, dance and big band style cinematic music. For this collection we captured a quality and unique character that has bite, punch and sharpness for a remarkable festive and glorious sound. A call back to those glory days of dance and big band standards in an inspiring collection.

Glory Days – Big band Horns was recorded at the Teldex Scoring Stage Berlin with an extended set of microphone perspectives, from very dry to stage ambient.

Blending Glory Days - Big Band Horns with other Orchestral Tools collections is a piece of cake. Beyond our regular mic setup, we decided to go for a more specific microphone selection of rare and unique microphones to give our Big Band Horns the charming sound of the past.

Additionally we captured Trumpets and Trombones with an extensive set of mutes: Bucket, Cup, Harmon, Plunger, Solotone and Pixie Mutes.

With its many colorful articulations the Glory Days - Big Band Horns are another work desk toolset for professionals and those on their way. Fluid Legato, Bends, Falls, Doits, agile Playable Runs - the collection comes with a full set of big band style articulations and effects. All articulations were captured in a very consistent set - making it easy  to interchange parts between instruments, layering or voicing them differently.
