Vienna Symphonic Library Horizon Series - Epic Horns


The Vienna Symphonic Library proudly presents the largest all-horn ensemble ever created in the history of sampling, the Epic Horns. The name already implies that these horns produce broad and big sounds in the truest sense of the word. But these eight double horns are capable of far more than that. The range of expression covers a vast array from subtle atmospheres and solemn, ceremonious, and majestic performances to bombastic dashing bursts. The Epic Horns are the key ingredient for achieving the sound of oversized late Romantic orchestras as well as modern Hollywood orchestras. Repetitions, an often used style in horn ensemble arrangements, sound amazingly impressive and absolutely realistic when played with the Performance Tool - not a trace of the "machine-gun" effect you usually hear with repeated notes! It was a big challenge to draw the subtle, sophisticated Performance Elements from these sometimes extremely loud instruments. In all our their of sampling, recording of the massive Performance Legatos of this large group of double horns was by far the longest and most arduous experience at the Silent Stage, Vienna's custom built recording hall. It was an exceptionally intense challenge for the whole team. Once you listen, we are sure you'll agree that the effort was worthwhile.

“ Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can! ”
* J.R.R. Tolkien
