New AcousticSamples VHorns Brass Section Mac/PC Software (Download/Activation Card). 

10 years in the making, our saxophones and brass instruments have enjoyed huge success since their release last year, and they continue to dazzle users and listeners around the world today. Thanks to our work on a revolutionary hybrid technology (which we call H.A.T.), we were able to blend the authentic recorded sound of world-class instrumentalists with state-of-the-art modeling techniques, giving users unparalleled playability and impeccable sounds which are indistinguishable from the real thing.
This is VSeries - the next generation of sampling.
We’re confident in saying that these VHorns are not only the most realistic and playable instruments of their kind, but they’re among the most realistic virtual instruments ever made. Have a listen below to VHorns instruments pitted up against their real-life counterparts - can you hear a difference between our instruments and the live player?

6-Instrument Bundle

The VHorns Brass Section contains 3 pairs of instruments: 2 trumpets, 2 trombones and 2 flugelhorns.

Each individual instrument has a distinct sound and was recorded by a different musician.

Each pair of instruments can be purchased separately:

Trumpets - Trombones - Flugelhorns

The H.A.T.

Thanks to our proprietary H.A.T. (Harmonic Alignment Technology), VHorns is not just another heavily multi-sampled instrument - you can play articulations exactly like a live player would, with just a mod wheel to control air flow (or even just by drawing in automation).

There are no elaborate keyswitches involved to play staccatos, marcatos, legatos or double tongues - you simply load up the instrument in your DAW and play. Vibrato can even be automated.

Legato Transitions

Fast legato transitions are often the main give away that an instrument is virtual rather than real, so we spent a considerable amount of time and effort carefully extracting every tiny detail of several recorded live transitions to make ours indistinguishable from a real performance.

These transitions range from lightning fast note changes to extremely slow bends, with and without extra attack. We covered everything - and you have complete control.

The legatos behaviour can be adjusted and even randomized for more life-like performances.

Multi Microphone Recording

Recording a brass instrument can be done in various ways and at different positions. We used 4 different microphone positions so that you can get the exact sound you want, as if you had chosen the microphone placement yourself.

This can produce even better results when using the "virtual space”, detailed below.

You can apply reverb and EQ to mix it completely to your taste.

Virtual Space

The virtual space perfectly replicates a real recording of an ensemble, using convolution. When you record a big band, you usually place a pair of microphones in front of the musicians and they naturally take position in the stereo field depending on where they are in the room.

The Virtual Space does exactly the same thing; you can place the musician wherever you like.

When using this with multiple tracks, you immediately have the feeling of being in front of a real horns section.


No Big Band horn section would be complete without mutes - they are an integral part of the sound. VHorns offers a variety of mutes on all 3 instruments: Plunger, Straight, Cup and Bucket.

Simply select the mute you want in the top right corner of the instrument’s interface and start playing.

Advanced Editing

There is an endless number of ways to play a brass instrument, and we took the time to talk to world-class players about the different variations they incorporate into their playing on a regular basis. Based on these discussions, we’re very proud to present the first ‘Advanced Editing’ tab in our VSeries - giving you near-infinite control over these instruments.

Keyboard, Breath Controller or Wind Controller

VHorns can be played using a keyboard by selecting the notes on the keyboard and controlling the air flow with a MIDI controller like the modulation wheel or a breath controller.

You can also use a wind controller like an EWI, an Aerophone a Sylphyo or any other brand, in which case you need to use the appropriate controller menu in the MIDI section.


If you load multiple instruments at the same time, it will play unisons exactly at the same time.

We added some smart features that first can change the timbre of the instruments, transpose everything by a fixed interval and also act on the MIDI performance.

For example, you can have all 6 instruments with a different transposition value play the same C minor scale, so no matter what you play on the keyboard, it will sound in key.

Sample player
VHorns Brass Section comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 3 (requires v3.1.6 or later).
We provide it for free with every library that you buy, you don't need to buy an expensive sampler to use our products. It works on Mac (10.14 or later intel or arm processor) and PC (windows 10 or later), in standalone or as a plugin (VST / VST3 / AU / AAX ) and in 64 bits only. You can find more info about it here.
Technical description

UVI Workstation v3.0.18 is required for the library to function properly, the VHorns will not work on windows XP, or OSX 10.6, it will not work on a receptor either.

412Mb compressed in lossless flac format (180 for both Trumpets, 107 for both Flugelhorns and 122 for both trombones).

Copy Protection
We use the iLok system to protect our products and you can choose to register your license to your computer or to an iLok dongle.
If you decide to use an iLok dongle, both V1 and V2 are compatible with our products.
You can activate your license on up to 3 computers or iLok dongles at the same time and you can deactivate one and activate another as many times as you want.
Once your order is complete, you will be provided with a serial number.

You will then be able to register it to your iLok account from our website on this page (you need to be logged in to access this page). The whole process is described in the FAQ (instructions + screencast).

We carefully measured the different parameters that change when a brass player uses vibrato and we combined everything into a highly realistic and customizable vibrato for VHorns.

There are multiple ways to control the vibrato: automatic, automatic depending on time, and manually.
