Century Artisan Brass Bundle for Kontakt Samples overview

The 8Dio Century Orchestral Series is the definitive state-of-the-art collection of hyper-realistic orchestral instruments. Century continues to represent our most significant leap forward in hall based orchestral sampling to date.
Effortlessly playable with each and every note deliberate and infused with care and emotion, the brand new Century Artisan Brass offers playability beyond words and a sound to rival even the most demanding situations.
Artisan Brass features unique and custom arranged ensembles with a strength of 6 Euphonium players, 6 Flugelhorn players and 6 Cimbasso players. Each group built from only the best musicians hand-picked and sourced from across the European continent.
The Century series is housed in a familiar, easy to use, yet powerful user-interface, which offers a variety of advanced options to assist you in your musical expression. From deep microphone and mix options, dynamic, speed, and release tail controls and the very latest in our Chaos Effect post-processing. All elegantly available at the touch of a button.

Century Artisan Brass was painstakingly captured at 96 kHz before being carefully down-sampled to 48 kHz for ease of streaming. Each recording session also featured only the very best in recording equipment, ensuring an almost purely analog signal path and workflow. Not only to maintain the clarity and warmth of these elegant instruments but to truly honor the sound and present you with one of the most exquisite collections of brass instruments available.

Century Artisan Brass features all-new natural legatos that truly characterize the flow and essence of each instrument. We also included a range of new dynamic playing techniques. Such as a selection of Arcs, which move smoothly and organically through the dynamics, allowing you to infuse emotion and depth into your music effortlessly. As well as complementary Crescendos to assist in building tension and life in any piece. The aim and soul of Century is to provide complete realism with fluent playability, and to do this we have introduced several new and extended playing techniques. These fully host tempo synchronized articulations allow you to play uniquely accurate phrases that perfectly fit your composition.

Century is more than a collection of sample libraries to us. It is an emotional and distinctively realistic series of deeply sampled instruments. It marks our endeavors to bring you the best that large scale hall sampling can provide. It is subtle when it wants to be, lyrical when it needs to be, and unapologetically epic when it has to be.

Truly Artisanal

Century Artisan Brass continues the legacy of our Century series. Setting new standards in both recording, performance and playability. We hand-picked the best brass players from all across continental Europe and utilized new sampling techniques, allowing us to record instruments more lyrically. All while maintaining a truly analog signal path, preserving the clarity and warmth in each players performance
The resulting instruments offer you the ability to move between articulations freely, from the biting Staccatissimo to the dynamically flowing Arcs, to the fully tempo synchronized Ostinato patterns and phrased sequences. Century Artisan Brass is effortlessly playable and undeniably believable.

Unparalleled Expression

The complete Century Orchestral series focuses on its beyond realistic tonal approach. Each instrument unique in both its nature and character feature playability and emotion exceeding anything previously available. The range of dynamics captured both naturally and independently allow you to control and seamlessly weave in between the dynamic range. With all the options included in Century, control and playability are second to none. Only bested by the ease of use through our custom in-built browser system, offering you instant access to every articulation.

8 Microphone Arrays

Artisan Brass features eight arrays of expertly placed microphone positions, offering you any perspective you may need. We also included our “Sweet Spot” Mix of all our microphone positions, as well as a more delicate, intimate and up-front Close Mix made from summing our Spot microphones. Or why not use our Decca, Far, and Wide options to create a true hybrid 5.1 mix.

Everything is offered in a singular, easy to use yet advanced environment, allowing instant access to all microphone options with further mixing capabilities.

Uniquely Modular

The complete Century series is designed specifically to cater to a modular workflow. The sound, stage, programming and instrumentation allow for each library to blend together seamlessly. We paid careful attention to microphone placement, hall type, signal flow and all the included articulations. Century provides you with the tools you need to build your very own ensemble, growing your palette of sounds as you see fit. Our Artisan Brass collection grows the series even further, allowing you to experience new techniques and ensemble sizes.
From the grand instrumentation in our Century Ensemble Brass to our smooth and solitary Solo Brass, Century offers it all, the perfect modular experience.
