WHAT THEY SAY
THOUSANDS OF PRODUCERS AROUND THE WORLD LOVE KAB
We always shied away from doing any 'real' instruments having had our roots firmly based in loops and capturing live performances. We always thought trying to make the 'perfect' this or that was a mug's game. This project actually came to us and we loved it so much we had to do it. We never regretted that decision, it's truly stood the test of time and the ironic thing is that the reason for that is probably because the library is truly authentic but far from 'perfect' which is what makes it stand out from just about every library still to this day.
Your feedback made this obvious from the start & here are just a few of the comments that you made.
HEAR FOR YOURSELF
DEMOS & USERS' MUSIC
We've always loved to hear KAB being used in countless productions all over the the world. Please continue to send them in. Here's a few that users have been kind enough to grant us permission to share and a few of our own basic demos of the sounds. Some of these were recorded well over a decade ago on earlier versions so are far lower sound quality than is standard today.
"Layered together and with suitable harmonies, the resulting brass sections come over as solid and assertive, not limp and flabby as so many brass samples are when used in this context.... If you need a tight, professional brass section (but can't afford the brass!) and don't want to be restricted to using sampled phrases, Kick Ass Brass is an excellent way to achieve great-sounding results." 5 stars

"...a superb-sounding, self-contained brass section...The appropriately brass-themed interface is stylish and clean...Carefully combining the variations can result in a strikingly realistic performance and with a touch of reverb the samples really come alive...if you’re in the market for top-notch modern brass sounds, they don’t come much sweeter than this. The user-friendliness of Kick-Ass Brass! scores highly for us and its sound is simply stellar – this virtual instrument fully justifies its name." 4 Mice.

"...it is possible to create some excellent results...These new instruments sound just as good as the original material, with the muted trumpet being particularly atmospheric...AMG have done an equally good job with the graphical front-end, and have combined good looks with ease of use...the plug-in worked flawlessly...The built-in effects sound good...Kick-Ass Brass! is still one of the most convincing ways to create modern brass sections...Overall, this library is aptly named - the samples themselves sound great and the front end is very slick."

"I loaded a MIDI song I made before with other brass sounds, replaced it with KAB! and it made me smile. It sounded much sharper and real. Most of the brass presets in synthesizers tend to sound too soft or too flat, so it is hard to get sharp and crisp sounds like KAB!. From rock to big band jazz, I recommend this to all genres of music creators."
- Yutaka Fujioka, Sound Designer
"Very dense and big-boned sounds. Every sound has a presence. Even the upper register notes of trumpet don't sound weak. And it is bright enough to give a flashy accent as expected for the brass sounds in the mix. It may not be made for classical music, but this is what I call the pop brass sounds."
