Arturia has announced Brass, a virtual instrument based on physical modeling that provides trumpet, trombone, and saxophone sounds. Developed in partnership with the IRCAM research institution, Brass is designed with real-time performance in mind, providing control over multiple parameters to enable realistic performances.
In "Live" mode, Brass is a ready-to-play instrument. Create your instrument (try an instrument made of wood, or add a mute) or choose a preset, assign MIDI controllers to the various parameters you want to control, and play.
There's also "Riff" mode, intended to simplify the process of creating instrument runs. A library of musical phrases in included which can be tweaked and then triggered by a sequencer or MIDI keyboard. The tempo will synchronize with a host and the riffs can be edited in real-time.
Brass will be available for Mac OS X and Windows, supporting standalone operation and multiple plug-in formats: VST, DXi, RTAS, HTDM, and Audio Units.
