Cinesamples CineBrass CORE

CineBrass CORE is revolutionary in its power and simplicity for recreating the sound of the orchestral brass section. The library was designed by composers, for composers, with direct feedback from the film music community during its development. The result is a brass library that is easy to use, composer-friendly, with the unparalleled recording quality.

All of the Articulations Patches in CineBrass contain shorts of various lengths and dynamics, as well as sustains. We recorded multiple repetitions per note and multiple dynamics as follows:
– Eighths Staccato @ 8xRR p to ff
– Quarters Tenuto @ 4xRR p to ff
– Halves Marcato @ 2xRR p to ff
– Sustains with smooth dynamic morphing

Also, all of the mapping in the Articulations Patches is dynamic so that you can select from 5 intuitive presets in the user interface. A custom mapping grid is offered for users who wish to customize the parameters beyond the presets. Every setting and value is changeable, and nearly any combination is possible. Of course, if you are not a tweaker, you can stick with one of the 5 preset mappings (recommended).


What is True Legato? True legato means that we sampled all of the intervalic leaps throughout the ranges, both upwards and downwards, for each brass section. When you play a True Legato patch, it instantly analyses the intervals you play, then represents the appropriate transitional leap between the notes. The result is a smooth and realistic legato performance. For all sections, we did this at 2 dynamic levels, again using our dynamic morphing to blend seamlessly from piano to fortissimo. A key feature of our True Legato patches is the Polyphonic Legato mode. This mode allows you to play lines of 2 or more notes simultaneously while maintaining the appropriate transition samples between all letters. This is especially effective when playing chords that need to connect realistically. These right legato patches are taken from the full articulation patches and can be triggered in the full articulation patches by holding the down the pedal (by default.) We have included these separate patches for ease of access to the legato patches. Separated Patch List: We have included short and sustain patch splits which are derived from the full articulation patches so that if you want to have separate tracks and instruments for each of the articulations, you can quickly drag them in to form your MULTI. For example, the Six Horn Patch has Legato Sustains, eighths, quarters, whole in the articulation patch. In a subfolder, we have split each of these and set them as default (FYI – it will still load the full set) to form 4 separate instrument patches.

CineBrass CORE v1.7 has been rebuilt from the ground up to include the Cinesamples Adaptive Legato Engine featured in CineStrings SOLO, CineStrings CORE, and CineWinds CORE and PRO. It allows you to tailor the legato response to your playing style and is designed to respond musically to your performance. The engine detects your playing speed and intelligently adjusts the interval speed to match. This means you can play slow, expressive lines and fast runs in a single performance, without touching the speed dial. Additionally, the intensity parameter responds to velocity.
We returned to the MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Studios to record True Legato samples for Trombone Ensemble. These samples are now seamlessly integrated with our previous Trombone Ensemble Articulations.

CineBrass CORE includes a brand new mapping area that allows for greater flexibility in customizing composer workflows. The new mapping system allows for articulations to be blended, using polyphonic keyswitching or overlapping velocity/CC ranges. This allows for even more flexibility for tailoring CineBrass CORE to your individual needs. You may add articulations using the + Add Articulation + button and subtract articulations using the X on the right. The ACCENTED LEGATO control layers an additional articulation (Marcato, Staccato, Spiccato) over legato transitions.
