This is a sound that uses two malstroms to produce a breathy, bottle kind of a sound. You can experiment with the mix between the 'pure' blown bottle and the breath noise in the Line Mixer that is in the combinator. Don't forget to add reverb!
This isn't really related to the EWI per se, and in fact there is no EWI playing on this album. Nonetheless, I thought I would mention it here.
My new favorite album. If you are a fan of 21st century jazz (I made that term up just now!) you will love Seamus Blake's new album featuring Oz Noy on guitar. This album is inventive and original. Oz Noy's textures are a nice complement to Seamus Blake's playing.
I highly recommend it.
The search for a killer synth brass patch continues. Here is another take on it. I cribbed from the Record Factory Sound Bank. There is a synth brass patch in there that uses three ID8 devices that sounds pretty good - except that the ID8 does not respond to BC and the usual CV tricks don't work because there are no CV inputs!
I replaced the sounds with one NN-XT and two Thors to come up with something even better. Personally, I think it's a losing battle to try to emulate a perfect horn section. Maybe that's because I'm a horn player and have been fortunate enough to play is some killer horn sections myself. I just know how good a real section can sound and trying to get it perfect and missing, is worse than not trying.
The main thing I like to do is get the same feeling as a real horn section and perform the same musical function as a real horn section, without sounding like cheeseball sampled horns.
I'll definitely be using this one on the gig.
