CAGE Brass

Welcome to CAGE – the most comprehensive collection of Orchestral Effects ever done. 

CAGE comes in three dedicated volumes for Strings, Brass and Woodwinds and each volume contains 9 microphone positions. The microphones are divided into two core groups: Ensemble (Close, Mixed, Decca, Far, Wide) and Divisi (Spot Mic 1, 2, 3 and 4). So, whether you want full ensemble or more chamber (divisi) oriented FX – it’s all there at your fingertips. 

The CAGE Brass Edition contains an articulation list second to none, with over 2.200 different FX articulations. The incredible depth of articulations is supported by our custom CAGE Chaos Engine, which contains over 80.000 lines of code. The CAGE Chaos Engine allows you to take complete control of the samples and you can control over 1.500 sample parameters with a single click. You can also randomize all the rack-fx (ex. trance-gate, filters, EQ). 

So, imagine having the deepest set of articulations with an incredibly intuitive and powerful Chaos Engine. An infinity of possibilities. 

The entire user-interface was designed in gorgeous 3D and in a way that allows both newcomers and experts to get rolling in a matter of seconds.  

But most importantly CAGE is the most comprehensive collection of orchestral FX ever done. Take something as simple a “string riser”.  It’s no longer matter of whether you want a rising string sound. It is a matter of whether you want it in normal legato glissando or perhaps with tremolo motion to it – maybe you want more of a trill based glissando or maybe you just want a horrific grinding string variation. CAGE has it all and is the definitive collection of orchestral FX. 




Hyper Flexible User Interface

CAGE has one of the most advanced, yet highly intuitive interfaces for orchestral sampling. We took a variety of the concepts from our V8P/8W Orchestral library and ported them into CAGE. The UI includes an advanced articulation browser with assignable articulations, advanced arpeggiation, and polyphonic step sequencing. 

Superior Mics and Mixing

CAGE contains 9 different microphones, which are divided into 5 ensemble mics (close, mixed, decca, far, wide) and 4 divisi mics (spot 1-4), allowing you to dial in the perfect sound of your choice. In addition, CAGE also comes with a wealth of convolution presets, so you can add otherworldly flavors to your sound.

CAGE Chaos Engine

The CAGE Chaos Engine is perhaps the most extreme feature in CAGE. We wanted to take the concept of Aleatoric (Chance & Randomization) Music and port into the user-interface. The CAGE Chaos Engine allows you randomize over 1,500 sample parameters with one click, while also randomizing our new 8Dio FX System (3.0).
