Arturia – Augmented Brass

Augmented BRASS is a software instrument that seamlessly fuses beautifully-recorded samples with powerful synth engines into powerful and experimental brass for your composition and production.

_An immediate cinematic brass toolkit

A refreshing option for producers, composers, and musicians looking for ready-to-go, high-quality brass sounds suited to their style, from classic to experimental.

_Great for beginners & pros

Augmented BRASS’ preset library and quick controls make it easy to use in any DAW workflow, but its advanced features allow for complex custom sound design when needed.


Augmented BRASS offers the most dynamic & larger-than-life range of sounds, the most flexible sound design options, and the most inspiring preset library for its price, shaking up the familiar orchestral VST plugin and giving something new to users.
