First Look: Cinebrass Sonore by Cinesamples
Absolutely beautiful, rich, and realistic sound.
The MGM Scoring Stage provides an incredible room tone for brass.
Great dynamic range, though it is focused more on the warm "sweet spot" of brass playing.
Short notes are very tight, and the legato is amazing.
Slightly niche product, not an all-in-one type brass library. More of an additional luxury instead of essential (but the price reflects this)
I was blown away by the beautiful, rich sound of CineBrass Sonore. Cinesamples were aiming for soft, warm and rich tones (ala John Williams), but the instrument’s range definitely covers some fairly bold territory as well.

First Look: CineBrass Sonore by Cinesamples
Cinebrass Sonore is a beautiful brass library featuring only trumpets and horns. Cinebrass Sonore is focused on a warm, rich, and full-bodied tone.
This is for composers who want a more warm and soft tone for their trumpets and horns, as opposed to bold and epic. Great for classical music and brass chorales, or channeling that sweet John Williams tone!
Cinebrass Sonore provides an absolutely beautiful and rich brass tone, very full-bodied and realistic. While it does aim to nail the sort of warm, softer dynamics, I was impressed with the overall range of the instruments, and they can definitely cover some fairly bold territory (think John Williams, not Hans Zimmer).
The package includes only trumpets and horns, so no trombones or tuba, but the price reflects this.
I was blown away by the beautiful, rich sound, and the MGM Scoring Stage is easily one of the best rooms for capturing that “Hollywood” brass tone. I feel this package is perfect not only for soft, brass chorale style writing, but for that vintage “Golden Era” Hollywood film sound as well, from the masters like John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, and James Horner.
The included mix presets all work wonderfully, so you can get a nice roomy sound, something more dry and up front, or anything in between, even having a preset mix for a “Bright John Williams” tone. Another nice addition, for the trumpets at least, is the option to have volume controls for the leader trumpet (Trumpet 1) and a separate volume for the accompanying trumpets (Trumpets 2, 3, and 4). This gives you the option to shape the ensemble sound and get a bit more clarity and detail in your trumpet lines by dialing in the leader trumpet to taste. All in all, a truly excellent library!
