Heavyocity FORZO Modern Brass review by Audio News Room

A product from

Heavyocity is a collective of professional composers and sound designers with a mission to create world-class virtual instruments for today’s modern composer and sound designer. Their philosophy is simple: Provide cutting edge, inspiring instruments and sounds that supercharge creativity, formatting them in ways that enhance productivity.

When I listen to Heavyocity’s libraries, the word Hybrid is one that I feel characterises them best. They have a big pro following, with heavy hitters such as Mac Quayle, Vernon Reid and Mark Isham all endorsing their products highly.

And so to Forzo – the latest orchestral addition to the Heavyocity stable. A heavyweight library weighing in at 25GB, recorded at the awesome Skywalker sounds studio, with well over 10K samples and several hundred presets to whet the appetite. The library is divided up into 2 sections – one of the traditional brass sections – French Horns, Trumpets, etc etc; the other section is a hybrid loop and texture engine that enables the creation of sounds and rhythms that cross the boundary between traditional instrument, and sculpted tone – giving a massive scope to create some astounding sounds.

Forzo is built for Kontakt, and it is scripted fantastically. Everything’s there on one page – with different elements available at a click. I liked this approach. It’s built for a fast workflow, which is essential to the modern day composer.
