Century Ostinato Brass Trombones & Tuba for Kontakt overview

The 8Dio Century 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. 

With this latest addition, we have brought our Ostinato techniques and workflow to the world of Brass. 

Ostinato Brass features a modular arranged ensemble with a carefully auditioned and hand-picked selection of 2 Trombones and Solo Tuba together creating a comprehensive yet nuanced brass section. Each instrument section was recorded individually, allowing for complete flexibility and customization in the compositional process. 

This series focus was the capturing of the perfect imperfections and true essence of repetitive playing. From varying short notes to an abundance of Agile movements and Flowing patterns, this addition to the Ostinato series is the perfect companion to any orchestral and hybrid score alike. 

The beauty behind the Century Ostinato series is its live recorded dynamic phrases. Each uniquely captured expression and pattern is available across the range of the instrument at multiple dynamics, all while maintaining the same feel and human-like inaccuracies of a real performance by utilizing the fully host synchronized capabilities. This means you have ultimate flexibility and playability, all while letting the instrument work to fit your production. 

The entire Ostinato series 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 and impeccably maintained analog signal path. This not only preserves and enhances the accuracy and character of each instrument but helps us to truly honor the sound of these master musicians, presenting you with only the best virtual instruments have to offer. 

Century is and always will be more than a collection of sample libraries to us. Each one tells the story of our musical journey, emotional, distinct, and without doubt, one of the most realistic series of deeply-sampled instruments ever launched. And with Century Ostinato Brass we have gone beyond realism, bringing you the best that large scale phrase-based sampling has to offer.

Always In Sync

Century Ostinato Brass offers an abundance of short note figures as well as fully tempo synchronized Agile ostinato patterns captured at three different speeds, and two articulate Flowing portato patterns. These lush and varied sequences are paired beautifully with multiple Tuplet and Triplet phrases. Each perfectly suited for adding accents, motion and life into your composition. At the core of the Century architecture is its unique User-Interface, designed to allow you to move freely and dynamically between all included articulations and speeds while retaining each patterns full tempo synchronization. Century Ostinato Brass is undeniably playable and its realism utterly addictive.

Fluid Dynamics

Century Ostinato Brass follows from the path left by its predecessors, to go beyond realism and bring you an authentically fluid playback experience. This latest Brass volume brings you four brand new sections, a two-piece Trombone section, and a Solo Tuba. Each instrument offering a unique color and quality that together can build the perfect ensemble, from the biting and regal powerful of the Trombone section or the somber, almost reminiscent tones of the Tuba section. Every included Ostinato pattern and Short Note phrase offers a range of dynamics that where acoustically captured, allowing for entirely seamless control over the dynamic range.

Tailor-Made Microphone Arrays

Century Ostinato Brass features four independently mixed and processed arrays of precisely positioned microphone positions. Each summed Mix offers a unique perspective, timbre and tonal possibility for your production. As standard (but by no means “standard”) we have included our “out of the box” and big-screen ready Mix. This core Mix contains all of our available microphone positions, as well as having available our more direct and up-front Close Mix, made from summing our player’s independent spot microphones. Of course, this means you can combine the remaining perspectives to create a larger than life and truly custom 5.1 mix of your own. All microphone stems are offered in a singular, easy to use interface, allowing instant access to all mix options and capabilities.

A Modular Series

The Century series is an ever-expanding line of pro-grade orchestral instruments. From phrase-based sampling to deeply emotional sampled instruments, every product in the Century line caters to a modular workflow. The sound, programming, instrumentation, and core architecture all allow for each library to blend seamlessly, working hand in hand perfectly.  For each instrument in the series, we paid careful attention to the details, no matter how fine. From microphone placement to hall type, signal flow to processing, and of course all the included patterns and articulations. Century provides you with the tools you need to build your very own ensemble, growing your orchestral palette as you see fit. Our Ostinato Brass Collection builds upon our previous Ostinato libraries by allowing you to seamlessly and almost effortlessly perform realistic brass phrases and repetitive measured figures with a level of nuance and realism never before captured.
