Vir2 Releases Mojo: Horn Section
Mojo: Horn Section is designed to offer a flexible approach to pop, funk, jazz, and big band horns created as a virtual instrument.
Load the instrument, turn the Ensemble knob to specify how many players you want playing that instrument (from a soloist to a dectet) and begin controlling the instrument from the keyboard. More than a dozen articulations are loaded and handled via performance features and keyswitches.
Included in the instrument collection are: soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones, trumpet (open, muted, and piccolo), flugelhorn, trombone (open and muted), bass trombone, and clarinet. The articulation list varies for each instrument, but generally includes sustains, stabs, staccatos, trills, slurs, shakes, octave runs, rise to hits, falls (including four different lengths), doits, bends, stylistic riffs, special effects, and tempo-synced swells and crescendos.
All samples are recorded in 24-bit stereo, with preamps such as the Neve 1073 and the LaChapell Audio 992EG, and mics by AKG, Neumann, and Coles.
Mojo is powered by the Kontakt engine, offering integration into sequencers via its AudioUnit, VST, and RTAS plug-ins, as well as standalone operation.

Pre-order is available at the website for $499.95.
