喇叭的扩展范围
作为 CineBrass Core 和 Pro 的完美搭档,CineBrass Descant Horn 扩展了 Horn 部分的范围。 专业圆号演奏者经常会拉出这种乐器来演奏精致的高音段落,它非常适合飙升的独奏。 与 CineBrass Core 和 Pro 一样,CineBrass Descant Horn 是在洛杉矶 Sony Pictures Studios 传奇的 MGM Scoring Scoring Stage 录制的。

什么是下降号角?
Descant Horn 和 French Horn 具有相似的结构。 Descant Horn 没有普通号角的低 F 面,但它确实有高 F 面。 具体来说,管子只有 6 英尺长,而不是标准圆号的 12 英尺长。 因此,谐波系列在标准喇叭上的正常 F2 之上偏移了一个八度。
Descant Horn 和 French Horn 的射程有什么区别?
号角的范围基本相同,尽管您可以将 Descant 号角延伸到 A 或 Ab,而不是在常规号角上停在 F。 因此,虽然 Descant Horn 不一定会更高,但较高音域的音色会被一个八度音程抵消,从而使较高音域更加灵活。

(极端范围可能因演奏者和乐器而异)

这个 Descant Horn 有什么独特之处?
我们采样的号角是双孔 Bb/High F。因此,从 Bb 侧的孔到高 F 之间的移动在声音上是无缝的。 我们采样的 Descant Horns 和其他单孔 Desant Horns 之间的尺寸差异很大,占双孔。 它还允许表演者在两侧之间切换时提高灵活性。

出于这个原因,从大约中 C 向下,单孔 Descant 号角听起来不如双孔号角好。 即使是中 C 到高于中 C 的高 C 听起来也会更浅,并且不会有双孔 Descant Horn 丰富的皇家声音。

与圆号相比,后角圆号的声音如何?
高音区在普通号角上更刺耳,而高音区在 Descant 号角上听起来更轻松、更轻盈。 一个类比是普通喇叭与短笛喇叭之间的比较。 由于这两种乐器的音域基本相同,最大的区别在于高音区。 短笛喇叭的声音没有传统喇叭那么刺耳。

此外,Descant Horn 不会那么深——与法国号的低 F 相比,它更浅、更精致。 但理想情况下,您不会在低音区使用 Descant Horn,因为那不是它的最佳位置。

Descant Horn 对玩家有什么好处?
当通道太高且需要柔软细腻时,演奏者可以切换到 Descant Horn,以便更轻松地到达那些音高,而不必用力敲击。 从演奏者的角度来看,它使高音区乐段演奏起来更容易也更准确。

Descant Horn 对作曲家有什么好处?
作曲家可以在 Descant Horn 的高音域中获得更大的精致度和准确性。 当然,如果作曲家正在寻找超强大的高音域声音,那将更适合普通圆号。 但对于精致的独奏,尤其是弦乐和木管乐器,使用下降圆号非常有用。

Expanded range for the Horn
A perfect partner to CineBrass Core and Pro, CineBrass Descant Horn expands the range of the Horn section. Pro horn players often pull out this instrument for delicate higher passages and it’s great for soaring solos. Like CineBrass Core and Pro, CineBrass Descant Horn was recorded at the legendary MGM Scoring Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles.

What is the Descant Horn?
The Descant Horn and French Horn have a similar structure. The Descant Horn does not have the low F side of a regular horn, but it does have the high F side. Specifically, the tubes are only 6 feet long rather than 12 feet long as on a standard French horn. So, the harmonic series is offset by an octave above the normal F2 on a standard horn.
What is the range difference between the Descant Horn and French Horn?
The ranges of the horns are basically the same, although you can extend the Descant Horn to an A or Ab rather than stopping at an F on a regular horn. So, although the Descant Horn doesn’t necessarily go higher, the timbre of the higher register is offset by an octave allowing more agility in the upper register.

(Extreme ranges can differ depending on player and instrument)

What is unique about this Descant Horn?
The horn we sampled is a dual-bore Bb/High F. Therefore, moving between the bore for the Bb side to the high F is sonically seamless. The difference in size between the Descant Horn we sampled and other single bore Descant Horns is substantial, accounting for the double bore. It also allows the performer increased agility while switching between the sides.

For this reason, a single-bore Descant Horn doesn’t sound as good as a double-bore from about middle C down. Even middle C to a high C above middle C would sound more shallow and it wouldn’t have the rich royal sound of the dual-bore Descant Horn.

How does the Descant Horn sound compared to a French Horn?
The upper register is more strident on a regular horn, whereas the upper register sounds easier and lighter on the Descant Horn. An analogy would be the comparison between a regular trumpet vs. a piccolo trumpet. Since the two instruments have basically the same range, the biggest difference is in the upper register. The piccolo trumpet has a less strident sound than a traditional trumpet.

Also, the Descant Horn is not going to be quite as deep – it’s a little more shallow and delicate compared to the Low F of a French horn. But ideally, you wouldn’t use a Descant Horn for its lower register since that’s not its sweet spot.

What is the advantage of the Descant Horn for the player?
When a passage is too high and required to be soft and delicate, the player can switch to the Descant Horn in order to reach those pitches more easily without having to pound so hard. From a player’s perspective, it makes upper register passages much easier to play and much more accurate.

What is the advantage of the Descant Horn for the composer?
Composers can achieve a greater amount of delicacy and accuracy in the upper register of the Descant Horn. Of course, if a composer is looking for a super powerful high register sound, that would be better suited for a regular French horn. But for delicate solos, especially over strings and woodwinds, using the descant horn is very useful.
