On yesterday’s live stream event hosted by acclaimed German sample developer Orchestral Tools, a well-known guest made a special appearance. Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL walked on stage of the Los Angeles Paramount Theatre and revealed that he is going to release his very own orchestral brass libray in cooperation with Orchestral Tools. Watch the trailer here:
Now for everyone who knows JXL’s film scores (300: Rise Of An Empire, Mad Max: Fury Road, Tomb Raider, Mortal Engines) and his amazing Youtube tutorial series Studio Time With Junkie XL, you know that the Award-winning film composer is popular for his powerful, over-the-top cinematic sound.
There’s no need to emphasize that he producing his own brass library for the public, following his sought-after style and vision is very good news for us composers and producers! With Orchestral Tools at his side, a company known for their expressive and precise orchestral sampling technique, I’m sure this upcoming brass library has a lot of game-changing potential.
JUNKIE XL BRASS is due to be released in 2019. As soon as Orchestral Tools publishes more information on the project, we will update this article. Hopefully will also get our hands on a test version of the product to review the sample library for you.
