Junkie XL Brass
Orchestral Tools has teamed with A-list Hollywood composer Tom Holkenborg to create an outstanding new brass library Junkie XL Brass. Better known in the music business as Junkie XL, Tom is a multi-platinum and award winning producer, multi-instrumentalist and film composer who has scored a number of high-profile cinematic releases including Terminator: Dark Fate, Alita: Battle Angel and Mad Max: Fury Road. When collaborating with Orchestral Tools on a concept for a next generation brass collection, Tom was able to draw on the vast insight and expertise he has gained throughout his career.
“I am a perfectionist in the studio and was determined to bring that same level of attention and detail to my first public sample library,”
“I want this to inspire my fellow composers, at whatever level they may be
working, and give them access to the best possible product that I could make.”

Highly consistent set of articulations for all instruments
Many different section sizes

Production-ready mixes done by Alan Meyerson
Recorded at the Teldex Scoring Stage in Berlin
Aimed at the professional and non-professional music creator, Junkie XL Brass offers a full orchestral brass set-up in a single package, recorded with a highly consistent set of articulations for all instruments and sections. Classic brass instruments - including trumpets, french horns, trombones, cimbassi and a tuba - were sampled in several different section sizes to provide maximum depth and versatility, with a dynamic range from whisper-quiet pianissimo to thunderously loud fortissimo. With no fewer than five recorded dynamic layers for each instrument and section, the dynamic crossfading is exceptionally smooth and industry leading.
Combined with a full brass patch for sketching ideas, Junkie XL Brass offers a total of 16 microphone positions ranging from unprocessed to production-ready mixes done by renowned movie scoring mixer Alan Meyerson. If your disk space is limited, customize your download by selecting only the mic positions you need - alternatively, you can download them all and see which ones work best with your ideas. The highly innovative mic merging feature allows you to save on resources: simply create your custom mic mix and save it as a single position.
Created for SINE - Player
Merge your mix into a single mic position. This allows you to use all mic positions for the resources of a single one.
With auto keyswitch creation on the fly and many remapping tools for your loaded instruments.
Download A La Carte
Rather than downloading an entire collection, you can choose those instruments and mic positions that you currently need.
Recorded at Teldex
As with previous Orchestral Tools collections, JXL Brass was recorded at the Teldex Scoring Stage in Berlin, a distinctively balanced 450 m2 hall with sublime acoustics and the finest microphones from the last five decades where Tom Holkenborg recorded the movie score to Point Break which was released in 2015. As a result JXL Brass blends seamlessly with Orchestral Tools earlier Berlin Series, Metropolis Ark Series and Time Series collections.
Exclusive Masterclass for Pre-Order Customers
Through a special offer by Tom himself, pre-order customers will receive an exclusive online JXL Brass Masterclass where Tom himself „LIVE and in real time“ will give a hands-on tutorial on how to get the absolute most from this brass collection, as well as some special tips and tricks. He will also be available for insights into the film scoring world and any other questions you may have.
*Date and time TBD. Pre-order customers that cannot make the masterclass in real time will be sent the recorded video.
