A sound collection that combines virtual brass instruments as solo instruments and the corresponding ensembles.

The Vienna Symphonic Library Brass 1 sound collection includes trumpet, Viennese horn, trombone, tuba, trumpet ensemble (3 players), horn ensemble (4 players), and trombone ensemble (3 players). The 4 soloists are masters of their trade: trumpet player Freddy Staudigl, hornist Marcus Schmidinger, and trombone player Johann Schodl all are foundation members of the renowned ensemble Brassissimo and are not only active with their quintet but also as soloists and orchestral musicians on an international level. The tubist Christoph Kiene is also internationally known as a lecturer.

In addition to the existing articulations of the Pro Edition, Brass 1 virtual instrument library provides fast Interval Performances in legato and marcato, Performance Trills, arpeggios (major, minor, and diminished in legato and staccato), and mordents. The virtual trumpet and trombone now offer the complete playing techniques, muted not only as solo instruments, but also in the ensembles. Among the specialties are the trumpet ensemble's "out of tune" sustains, as they happen now and then in real orchestral situations. The 3 trumpet players don't hit the note exactly at the beginning—a beat frequency ensues which is corrected as the tone progresses, eventually resulting in a clean homophony. Furthermore, the virtual trumpets feature "rips & falls." And the virtual trombone ensembles offer clusters of 3 notes with half tone intervals, available in staccato (2 variations), sustained, crescendo und diminuendo (in 2 tone lengths), sforzato, and even as Repetition Performances.
