Dust#77 by Whyte Wolf [Album]

On the 21st October 2019 – The Whyte Wolf has just released his debut full-length album ’Dust #77’

Whyte Wolf, a Brighton based creative describes his style of production as. “Making noises with an upset computer.”With this poor machine he creates mostly electronic music ranging from ambient soundscapes to the rain-soaked bliss of Paper Crane, from oppressive drones like P R E S S U R E to the happy psychedelic muddle of Dulux Intercourse.

Dust#77 has been described by Au-Fait Magazine as. “A psychedelic experience… Sans the ingestion of controlled substances.” When speaking about the album, his inspiration and his music in general, he said, “While pop music tells you everything is amazing for the happy masses and metal shouts about everything that’s wrong with the world for the angry and irate, there’s never been any music for the man quivering in the corner with no clue what’s going on anymore; that’s where my music comes in!” In his spare time, Whyte enjoys getting lost in nature,playing with his Cat ‘Bob’ and always learning a new skill, be it animation or learning a new programming language. He also composes score and does sound design for short films, one of which was recently produced by and shown at the Cici Film Festival in Sicily. (and a Pixel Mixer member 😉 )

FREE VIRTUAL INSTRUMENTS – ORCHESTRA II: BRASS

Haave you ever been in need of that heroic horn sound, or that uplifting  trumpet section in one of your tracks? And have you needed it while being poor? Lucky you (well, not for the poor part) there are some solution to still have that brass section in your track for free!

Same as for our article on free strings, we are going to divide the instruments on our list into two categories: one is the category of absolutely free instruments, the other is for instruments that are free if you already own Native Instrument’s Kontakt.

Already cited in our previous article, here are all the esemble patches as last time:

VIRTUAL PLAYING ORCHESTRA BY PAUL BATTERSBY

Virtual Playing Orchestra has a brass section too. Copy-pasting from the said article, VPO is a free collection of orchestral instruments made putting together all the best free orchestral samples. The library is in .sfz format, so it runs on Sforzando (also free) and offers all sort of articulations and dynamics controls (not on all the patches, but on all those for which matter).

VSCO2 COMMUNITY EDITION BY VERSILIAN STUDIOS

VSCO 2 Community Edition (CE) is an open-source, open-ended subset of the main VSCO 2 library. These samples have been widely used and you can find them in multiple formats, such as VSTi/AUi, NKI, sfz, RMI and more. 

I know it’s not much, but if you have Kontakt, you can up your game a little bit.

Again, let’s get the two full orchestras of last time first:

SKETCHING CHAMBER ORCHESTRA

Sketching Chamber Orchestra is a collection of Kontakt instruments built by some big names in the Kontakt Scripting community using the samples from VSCO2. If you own Kontakt and nothing else, this will get you started, and bring you very far.

PALETTE PRIMARY COLORS BY RED ROOM AUDIO

Last on this list, Palette – Primary Colors is the free version of the bigger Palette Orchestral Series.  It features strings, woodwinds, and brass ensembles with a limited set of articulations, 3 dynamic layers and up to 7 round robins for a total of 1.3GB of samples. Even though this does not offer individual sections, this is a gorgeous tool, and a free one.

BRASS COLLECTION BY ALPINE PROJECT

This one is a decent alternative to VPO, has received a nice rework lately and features the instruments both in “normal” and muted versions. Especially useful if you plan to layer many different samples to get a bigger sound.

VAN HOUZEN TRUMPET BY KURT LANDRE

Get ready, this one is a treat. Van Houzen Trumpet is a delicious solo trumpet with plenty of character. Scripted vibrato, legato and articulations will allow it to sit naturally in many contexts and get a lot of fun out of it!

ANGRY BRASS BY PERFORMANCE SAMPLES

Last – but definitely not least – for today is Angry Brass by Performance Samples. Do you know complicated GUIs, knobs, buttons and switches? Forget all that, because the interface you will be presented with is the most simple and straight-forward you can think of, and an engine behind the scenes will take care of performance for you.

Brass are especially tough to sample and program, so it’s not surprising to see few freebies in this area. Nonetheless, I can personally vouch the instruments in this list are will serve you well if you know how to take the best out of them.

Nothing more to say at this point, see you soon with another freebie list!
