Morphing: sound between the valves

Navigate the exciting sonic territory between each of Augmented BRASS’ elements with the central Morph control.

A single sweep adjusts multiple parameters, moving between samples and synthesis, motion and color, familiarity and the unknown.


A vast range of expressive & powerful brass samples, from chamber trumpets to tubas, punchy staccatos to orchestral swells, alongside an embellished selection of outboard-processed and resynthesized recordings. The most comprehensive range of useful, musical, and creative brass samples, featuring dozens of articulations, forming an essential foundation for evolved brass sounds.


Infuse your brass timbres with the hard-hitting modern sound of 4 synth engines - Virtual Analog, Granular, Wavetable, and Harmonic - alongside the Simpler engine, a flexible library of impact and noise samples for extra energy, precision, and depth.

Multi-Sample Layering

Virtual Analog





Easy, hands-on, creative.

Brass that can be transformed, customized, and animated in seconds.

Augmented BRASS is designed to deliver the powerful, authentic brass sounds you need, but give you the flexibility to push your sound into new territory when you need to - in as little time as possible.

Deeper sound design

Rearrange, modulate, and customize every aspect of your hybrid ensemble.

Augmented BRASS’ simple interface and diverse preset library brings quick results to keep your flow moving - but when you want to get complex, you can. The Advanced panel takes you deep into the inner workings of the instrument, giving you detailed control over your sound sources, modulation, performance, and beyond.

Tap into the full capabilities of Augmented BRASS’ sound sources by adjusting the dual engines within each layer. This puts 4 sound sources at your disposal; any combination of up to 2 sampling and 2 synthesis engines. Within each engine, make subtle tweaks or drastic changes, from essentials like part-specific panning and waveform combinations, to detailed elements like vibrato assignment or keyboard offset.

Animate and transform your sound with ultra-simple click-and-drag modulation routing. Apply multiple LFOs, functions, random generators, and keyboard controls to numerous parameters, and customize each modulation generator to do your sonic bidding.

Turn the simplest of ideas into vibrant patterns of brass texture and momentum with a built-in 16-step arpeggiator. Whether you’re injecting movement into a chord sequence or turning static drones into evolving soundscapes, this familiar tool is built to be synchronized, randomized, and tweaked in real-time.

Dial in your own flavors of distortion, sound-sculpting, and drastic processing with 2 FX slots per layer, and sprinkle the final spatial and time-based touches with Delay and Reverb at the end of the chain.

The command center for Augmented BRASS’ crucial macro controls; observe a real-time overview of every parameter and function that each of the 8 macros are altering, and hone in on the detail of each adjustment as you perform, produce, or record.

Capturing the essence of brass

This isn't just a detailed sample library; this is a collection of diverse, authentic, and modern brass recordings, from the wonderful to the weird, performed by a dynamic and expressive ensemble.

Before morphing, modulation, or expression, Augmented BRASS needed a solid sonic foundation. The sample library that forms this foundation was recorded in a specialist studio in Europe, with a colorful variety of microphones and preamps, spanning tuba, cimbasso, contrabass trombone, bass trombone, tenor trombones, trumpet, and horns. It explores 11 orchestral articulations, from soft sustain to random fluttertongue expressions, alongside 16 chamber articulations, including trumpets, horns, trombones, and tubas.

Tipping over into experimental territory, you're also equipped with 15 processed brass sounds, where both orchestral and chamber samples have been treated with vintage outboard units, tape machines, distortions, and other effects to unlock a wealth of exciting new timbres. Finally, the library is complemented by 15 addditional brass-esque sounds, from resonant synth pads to droning metallic textures.

Your production-ready brass library

For when you need immediate results to get that project finished, Augmented BRASS’ preset library contains hundreds of expertly-crafted presets, from ideal bread-and-butter brass to dense hybrid textures - all at the touch of a button.
