Looking to give your productions a distinctive touch? With Augmented BRASS, a potent virtual brass instrument that enables you to easily create vibrant, inspirational soundscapes that range from accurate realism to otherworldly, you’ll learn how to accomplish just that in our Arturia Augmented BRASS video course. Tyler Coffin, a music production specialist, will lead you through every aspect of Augmented BRASS so you’ll be prepared to start creating your own masterpiece right away. Everything is available here, from browsing presets to creating your own sounds from scratch. New users of Augmented BRASS should watch these videos.
Tyler begins with an overview of the interface and layout of the instrument so that you’ll quickly get your bearings and know where everything’s located as we proceed through the tutorials. Then it’s on to the two layers, each of which contains two elements: sampler and synth. The Sampler, which can be used to select from dozens of authentic brass samples as the basis of your sound, can be blended with the synth engine in countless ways to conjure up evocative tones for film soundtracks, video game scores, or even your next pop production. Next, explore the modulation possibilities that exist within Augmented BRASS, including two LFOs, dedicated vibrato and tremolo, two random generators, and much more.
Tyler then covers the 16-step arpeggiator, which allows you to create rhythmic movement in captivating ways. The course has much more, focusing on the remaining components, such as the Effects (EQ, flanger, delay, reverb, bitcrusher, and more), macros (for adjusting several parameters at once with a single knob), preset management and browser (so you’ll know how to quickly navigate to the sounds you want), and more. Tyler wraps up the course with two sound design examples: one focusing on a more typical brass application and the other on a more creative, experimental approach.
Augmented BRASS is an incredibly expressive instrument to add to your arsenal, and this course will show you how to use it quickly to its fullest potential. Before you know it, you’ll feel right at home, ready to start mining its depths for sonic inspiration that will set your next track apart from the masses.
