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.

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.

As a result JXL Brass blends seamlessly with Orchestral Tools earlier Berlin Series, Metropolis Ark Series and Time Series collections.
