Tracing origins of a Technics sound?

This is more about a sound than about my KN7000 but couldn't think of a better place to post.
I have a sound in the edited sounds section called Mellow Horn or Mellow Horns.
A brilliant brass sound which suits playing Elgar etc.
I had this sound before I got my KN7000 so it could have been used on my KN6500 (most likely) or my AC1200 module (unlikely).
As I have bought loads of software, I don't know where this sound originated and wondered if anyone is using the same sound and knows where it came from.
My KN7000 is now in storage (due to a fault on midi out) and I am back to my AC1200 module and trying to get all my favourite sounds back together.
As Technics sound are not backwardly compatible, I cannot load a sound from the KN7000 into my AC1200 but must use the original disk which creates a problem when I don't know which disk it's on.
It may be that the original sound won't load into the AC1200 anyway if I did get it with KN6500 software but I have to try as I will miss it so much - used it a lot in Christmas carols etc.
Hoping someone else has it and can enlighten me as to it's origin.
Quite a challenge this one but thanks if anyone can help.
Tony

Hi Tony, I think I know the sound you are talking about, I will look through the basic default memory sounds in all the KN models to start with to see if it crops up then go from there. I am on the case (The Ferret is at it !!)

Thanks John,
Somehow I thought that you might be the first ferret on the case.
Hope you find it mate - I know it means a lot of digging to find something like this.
All the best,
Tony

Re: Tracing origins of a Technics sound?

Hi Tony, I know it has taken a while but I have been looking for the sound "Mellow Horns", the only one I could find is in the WSA1. Which you have not listed as something you have owned. The nearest is on the AC1200 as voice Mellow Brass that is voice 50 variation. The only other thing could be you have found the sound in any software you have used ? The voice data on the WSA1 is not compatible to any of the KN range although they share the same basic sound engine. As I say I think the nearest is in your AC1200.
Regards John.
