    70's Funk Horns

    Alright. I know I don't have the same rooms, boards, players, etc. that were used to record the funk horn sounds from the 70's. I'm just trying to get some multisampled horns to try and get as close as possible. Which sample libraries should I look to? Also, are there any books/resources for funk/pop horn arrangements that might be a little more accessible to the layman? Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!

    The best I've heard so far is from Kick ~~~ Brass. The company just relocated to Florida from England and is having a sale right now if you add "FLORIDA" to the "Add Comments" section on the checkout page:

    (Cant post a direct link to the proper page due to the censoring factor!)

    Thanks for the link. It looks like what I need but there's no demo. Do you have any mp3's of your own work with the kick-____ brass?

    Hmm, there's a demo link on some formats' pages and not others. Try here:

    http://www.samples4.com/catalog/prod...roducts_id=158

    Also, there was another recent thread concerning pop brass, with a link to a new demo in the last post:

    Unfortunately I don't own the library---yet.

    I managed to re-create a 70's horn sound with edirol orchestral. Its pretty easy with the right EQing and mixing....although what it did is a little more 60's

    Rumour has it that Kick @$$ Brass will have a groovy new version out in December. i'm pretty excited about that. I need good horns for the rock/soul idiom.
    Thanks for posting the demos- I'm about to check them out!

    Also though, Gary Garritan and GPO has thier long rumoured Big Band upgrade in the works as well and this may turn out to be the perfect solution. We shall see!!

    I think that the Project SAM collection is pretty good and affordable, there are no loops thought, so if you are good at programing you might like this library. Phantom horn is not bad either, its got many JBs style riffs as well as hits.
