The Harmon Swells

The Story

This free library was recorded back in 2014. I finished it almost a year later and have been using it exclusively in my own projects. The original content recorded in these sessions was nearly 8 gigabytes. However, I've selected only these two patches to share exclusively with you!! This library was recorded with a pair of Neumann M103's in a large dry room with a solo Trumpet player.


The concept was simple. Record a bunch of tempo locked swells at different lengths whilst having the performer going from closed to open with the harmon mute. Did I also mention that the player would change their tone from normal to brassy too?
