First Look: Mojo 2 Horns by Vir2 Instruments

11 Months ago at the Vir2 Instruments 2018 NAMM presentation, I got to hear some samples of this instrument as a work-in-progress. At the time what I heard was some of the most realistic and expressive horn samples I have ever heard. Fast forward to the release of Mojo 2 Horns.

When I first saw the “Famous Horn Lines” promo video (below)  I knew we were in for a treat. I am happy to report no quality was lost along Vir2’s path for developing this fine collection of horn section instruments.

Mojo2 Horns Performance Panel

With a completely new sample set (losslessly compressed down from over 100GB!) and brand new easy-to-use engine, this Kontakt Player instrument loads up in what I call the ‘big-boy” interface taking advantage of Kontakt‘s larger GUI display real estate.

The main Performance panel allows controls for each of the 13 articulations the instrument has to offer with loads of controls for tweakers, yet accessible enough to make it easy to get started working with right away.

Mojo 2 Horns Mixer Panel

The real standouts for the library are the 13 articulations on offer via keyswitching and the quality of sample playback. Three microphone positions in the Mixer Panel (as well as Effects Panel) allow for users to sculpt the sound for playback and that is not to dismiss the timbre changes capable with just a click of he mouse to select different Modern, Retro, Vintage 1 & 2 playback modes at the top of the instruments interface.

In this first look video, we have a look and listen to what the library has to offer right out of the box.

Mojo 2 Horns sells for $499.95 from Vir2 Instruments
