Heavyocity – FORZO (Review)

Heavyocity just released another product in their range of modern orchestral virtual instruments: FORZO Modern Brass. Following the successful concept of their Modern Strings range NOVO, FORZO is in essence three libraries in one: a powerful 26-piece orchestral brass section sampled with over 100 articulations, a hybrid engine that masterfully merges traditional brass and sound design and a loop designer that puts over 400 tempo-synced brass loops at your fingertips.

In this review, we’ll have a look at the library’s features and find out together, if FORZO can hold up to its award-winning sibling NOVO.
