HOW TO: Get your Century Brass v 1.2 Update

What's New

Version 1.2 of Century Ensemble Brass is now available. The new update has fixed a few small issues and now includes individual patches for each articulation to improve load times and workflow in larger projects by allowing you to load only the sections and playing styles that you require. We have also included time machine capable dynamic arcs, allowing you to truly shape the length, speed and pitch of the performance in real-time; as well as our latest "Chordal" Legato, which enables you to play chord-based polyphonic lines within a single patch. 

How to update

***You Do Not Need To Re-Download The Entire Library***


If you are downloading the product after the 3rd of June 2019 you will have been automatically sent the updated version, so install the library normally and you will receive the updated version. If you are unsure on how to do this follow the link below:

See below on how to update your library if you already have the 1.1 version:
