Vehicle Brass on Ne5D

Postby Payback1 » 26 Aug 2016, 16:09

My cover band does a killer version of the old Ides of March tune.Im having an issue with finding the correct brass sound. The Pop Brass sections are working but I find the really bright and shrill even when eq'd down.Any suggestions for that full yet warmer sound?

I'm also finding the brass samples of Nord are not to my liking. I will likely sample some brass sounds off of my Kork Triton Extreme when I find the time. If I do , I will post them on this forum. Did you search the forum for better brass samples?

I totally agree with that (re: brass on the NE5).

When I moved from a NE4 - the brass on the NE5D was not to my liking. I was a little disappointed. Yet, I did exactly what ericL said using the

sample on the NE5D. I tweaked it a lot. Took longer than I expected - yet, the NE5 is more complex - takes time to find what one likes. Then the amp, than the .... Keep hacking at it - it will work eventually. I wish we all had more time to experiment.

My band also plays VEHICLE and even though I have pretty much what I like + want on the NE5d - with a KB split (B3 on the lower end - brass above - for Vehicle and 25 or 6 to 4) ... I still own & use a NE4D which is easy (I'm time challenged) to use the Brass Setting that I do like and still use at gigs! HANG IN THERE!

I'm not close to my Nord to verify, but, I believe it was on line HERE: http://www.nordkeyboards.com/sound-libr ... wind-brass
I'm 95% sure it was THIS sample: (HornTrio+Baryton_Split_ste CLv4) that's included in the bundle you can still download from Nord. Of course it needs to be tweaked and EQ'd to your liking. I hope it helps! Nothing is better than real brass - but a lot more of a pay-share! Too bad the Nord does not get a share! lol
