Gothic Instruments release DRONAR Brass

February 28th, 2018 - Gothic Instruments has announced the release of DRONAR Brass - the next installment of their highly popular series of Kontakt atmosphere creation tools.

Despite beginning its journey as recordings of a concert brass group in an English church hall, what you DON’T get with DRONAR Brass is a brass sample library. What you DO get are organic, evolving atmospheric pads and pulses with a rich brassy core. A soundtrack from a steampunk brasstopia where synths are made of brass and run on steam power...

From breathtakingly majestic to ethereal and uplifting, suspenseful to relaxing… DRONAR Brass is useful for any project that requires interesting atmospheric pads - from electronic music and pop music to film and media jobs. The brass texture lends itself to warm, rich sounds and can convey a mood of peace as well as heroism and will blend well with the DRONAR Live Strings module to give enhanced orchestral colors.

The DRONAR series makes it incredibly easy to create and expressively play complete evolving atmospheres, pads and textures for a huge range of musical styles and moods. Furthermore, DRONAR Brass is both beginner and expert friendly… Needing to only play a few notes and move a few dials to get such rich expression is inviting for newcomers to the DRONAR series, but an expert will get further by knowing which notes to play and how to express emotions using the dials.

Beyond the shimmering immediacy of the 'Main Page' awaits a whole other world of expert control, turning DRONAR into a vast modular multi-timbral synth/sampler with multiple independent arpeggiators. Interactions between crazy internal modulations (rhythm sequencer, arpeggiator, LFOs and delays) take DRONAR Brass into another dimension…
