The instrument range is expanded to include three saxophones, two trombones, three trumpets, a tuba, and a flugelhorn. All instruments can be played solo or as a part of customizable horn sections. 38 horn section presets provide common section types from popular music, making the process of finding the right sound easy for users of every level.
SESSION HORNS PRO’s Animator feature is also boosted to include over 200 ready-to-play riffs – up to six phrases can be combined at once.
