The MOJO: Horn Section virtual instrument lets you simply load the instrument, turn the Ensemble knob to specify how many players you want playing that instrument (from a soloist to a dectet) and begin controlling the instrument from the keyboard. More than a dozen articulations are instantly loaded and handled via performance features and key-switches. Behind the scenes, a humanizing function, smart release layers, and custom legato and vibrato tools assist you in reproducing the dimensions in realism. Crescendos and swells sync instantly to host tempos and can be triggered in real time.
Included in the instrument collection are soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones; trumpet (open, muted and piccolo); flugelhorn; trombone (open and muted); bass trombone; and clarinet. The articulation list varies for each instrument, but generally includes sustains, stabs, staccatos, trills, slurs, shakes, octave runs, rise to hits, falls (including four different lengths), doits, bends, stylistic riffs, special effects and tempo-synched swells and crescendos. All samples are recorded in 24-bit stereo using such preamps as a vintage Neve 1073 and a LaChapell Audio 992EG, and mics by AKG, Neumann and Coles.
MOJO is powered by the Kontakt engine, offering total integration into all major sequencers via its AU, VST and RTAS plug-ins, as well as stand-alone operation.
