As part of their Modular Series, Westgate Studios is proud to announce the release of The French Horns Module. This library features 24 bit samples for Gigastudio 3.1 and Kontakt 2.1. On the DVD you will find a comprehensive set of patches for Solo Horn and a Four Horn section, along with a set of bonus patches for Two Horns in unison. Westgate Studios has also included Muted Horn and Stopped Horn samples for solo and four horns.

One important feature of this library is the Legato playing style. These patches contain not only expressive long notes, but also true legato interval samples that were recorded as the musicians played every note up and down from 1 half-step all the way up to a full octave. And you don't have to load any special tools to control them because the Legato effect is powered by Gigastudio's imidi rules and Kontakt's scripting engine. Within this same instrument you can vary the Attack Strength of each note, control the use of Release Samples, and play Same-Note Legato Repetitions in any rhythm or tempo.

With samples of 1-4 players you can layer the instruments to create a section of any size up to 7 players.

This library has everything you need for creating dynamic French Horn tracks with velocity levels ranging from mezzo piano to triple F.

Along with these highlights you'll also find everything you've come to expect from the Modular Series: up to 4 variations of Staccato and Marcato articulations, changing dynamics such as Crescendo, Diminuendo, and Fortepiano. You'll also find effects such as Flutter-tongue, Trills, and Rips. Westgate has gone the extra step to make this a complete horns solution by including cinematic Chord Clusters in sustain, staccato and crescendo variations.

Whether you are a power user or a hobbyist, the feature list and price of this module are enough to make any serious musician want to add these exquisite sounding instruments to their arsenal. We have only scratched the surface here. For a complete feature list and audio demos, head over to westgatestudios.com.

With a retail price of only $185 (US), the French Horns Module is available on DVD for either Gigastudio 3.1 or Kontakt 2.1. The samples included are 24bit\44.1k\stereo recordings of Solo Horn, Solo Horn (muted), Solo Horn (stopped), 2 Horns, 4 Horns, 4 Horns (muted), and 4 Horns (stopped).
