Legion Series: 66 Tubas 


66 Tubas is the second creation in our Legion Series, an instrument line dedicated to solving specific needs in epic cinematic music. 

 We gathered a 66-piece symphonic Tuba ensemble, comprised of musicians from 13 countries across Europe, in our favorite modern recording hall, Zlin. In these once-in-a-lifetime sessions, all the players gave it their absolute best. It shows. 

66 Tubas contains all the common articulations (Sustains Types, Short Notes, Arcs, Effects, Note-Bends, etc) as well as a large set of new articulations (Dynamic Waves, Tuning Clusters, BPM-based Ostinatos, Bridge FX, etc). 

The library features 10 different microphones, including a new Trailer Mix microphone that offers you the most upfront and aggressive microphone setting, 4 Hall-Based microphones (Mixed, Decca, Far and Wide), and 5 intimate close Spot microphones for a more detailed sound. 

66 Tubas also features a new 3D-rendered UI with a new 4-part modulation engine and a whole special section of BPM-based Ostinatos. 66-Tubas cost us over $82,000 to produce and is the second of several in our Legion series. It is the dream of super cinematic brass fulfilled. Strong, Warm, and Deep.

9 Microphones and 1 Binaural

The library contains 10 different microphone positions, including new Trailer Mix microphone, which offer the most aggressive combination of microphone settings. It was designed to make your mixes strong in an instant. The library also includes 4 Hall Microphones (Decca, Mixed, Far, Wide) and 5 Close Spot Microphones. 

4-Part Modulation Engine

66 Tubas also includes our new 4-part modulation engine for extreme sample and effects work. The 4 modulation engines each contain their own X/Y Matrix grid, and you can assign an FX parameter to both the X/Y values. Powerful functions like reverse and stack are only a click away.  

66 Tubas

66 Tubas contains the largest symphonic Tuba ensemble ever recorded. We removed all chairs and baffles in the hall to maximize the reverberation, which lasts over 3 seconds. It is the same hall we used for Majestica, Lacrimosa, Acoustic Grand Ensembles, CAGE, and many other instruments.
