The Ultimate Pro Horn Collection

Big Fish Audio are proud to present MOJO 2: Horn Section, their biggest and most advanced instrument to date! After the release of the hugely successful MOJO: Horn Section, Vir2 knew its sequel had to build upon the already advanced sampling and playability of the first volume. Vir2 went back to the drawing board, fully redesigned the instrument, and recorded all brand new samples. MOJO 2 delivers the most flexible and innovative approach to Pop, Funk, Jazz, and Big Band horns ever created in a virtual instrument with an incredibly simple but feature-packed interface. After years of development by an amazingly talented team, Vir2 are proud to release the premier horn section of the decade.

New Features in Version 2.0

After over a year of development, Vir2 is proud to present their largest update ever: MOJO 2: Horn Section 2.0! Vir2 rebuilt the instrument from the ground up, updating and improving the original samples, and adding a whole host of exciting new features and instruments! Vir2 remixed all samples, added four new simulated muted instruments, added new legato options, improved the simulated vibrato, and much more! Check out the new walkthrough to see these updates in action and hear the new power of MOJO 2!

Craft the Perfect Horn Section

Vir2 recorded 13 different brass and reed instruments for MOJO 2 to fulfil any horn need you’ll encounter, and for version 2.0 they have added four new simulated muted instruments! Each horn comes with 13 different articulations including Sustains, Staccato, Stabs, Bend Down, Octave Run Down & Up, Doits, Rise To Hit, Shakes, Trills, Swells, Crescendos, and Falls, as well as up to four velocity layers and three round robins.

  • True Legato: With Legato Mode you can play the most realistic melodies possible. Vir2 meticulously recorded the transition period between each and every note, allowing you to play beautiful horn lines that sound truly lifelike.
  • A Full Horn Ensemble: MOJO 2 lets you instantly adjust from 1 to 10 players per instrument to add extra depth and power to your performance. Further parameters give you control over the humanization and stereo spread of the ensemble.
  • Customize Your Sound: Blend the three available mic positions (close, near, and room) to get the perfect mix. Utilize keynoise overlay to introduce the sound of the musician's interaction with the instrument, and tailor the horns with an extensive FX suite.

Music Through the Ages

There are four unique era modes that act as time machines, effortlessly transporting all seventeen included horns from one iconic era to the next. Era settings include: Modern, Retro (60’s-70’s), Vintage 1 (40’s-50’s), and Vintage 2 (20’s-30’s).

Performance Page

The Performance page offers both global and articulation-specific controls. Dive into the customization of how the horn parts are played and how the sound is shaped with powerful controls over volume, release length, legato, sustain vibrato (real and simulated), pitch bend range, keynoise, round robins, and more.

Mixer Page

The Mixer page includes controls for all three mic positions: close, near, and room, as well as a full mix option (a pre-mix of all three mic positions for an easier memory load). Also, control your ensemble settings here with options from 1 to 10 players for a fuller sound.

Effects Page

All the included effects have been specifically curated for MOJO 2 to ensure you get the best possible results. Control the EQ, Cabinet, Saturation, Tape Saturator, Compressor, Limiter, Delay, and Reverb, each with their own specific parameters and presets.

Key Mapping Page

Customize the keyboard layout and change how and where the different articulations and release samples are triggered. It has never been easier for an instrument to integrate with your workflow!
