Inside the shell you will find the secret to Century Brass. An exquisite collection of luxury virtual instruments – specifically designed for high-end, emotional realism. The Century Brass Sessions took place over 2 years, selectively hand-picked players from all across Europe.
Over 700 hours of session/recording time. Only lord knows how many sessions – and then retakes – and even further retakes.
Century Orchestral Brass was derived from several new recording and sampling techniques. All the legatos are not only layered in dynamics, but we created new programs that offer you a completely smooth transition. So when you need to take your Horn from Piano to Fortissimo – just do it – and it works effortlessly. We also recorded a wealth of different short notes. There is so much more than the typical staccatos and marcatos. We recorded unique fanfare oriented short notes – with more bite and tension. We recorded traditional articulations – at multiple lengths. More arcs then you could dream of. But, of course all arcs are now dynamically layered and recorded at multiple lengths. So, in essence, you have control over Dynamics (CC1), Expression (CC11) and Speed (CC16).
Century Brass is not a sample library to us. It is a truly emotional and realistic collection of incredibly deep-sampled brass instruments. It can be anything you want it to be. The softest skin you ever touched. The thunderous end of a world. It can be subtle. It can be Forte. But it will always be lyrical.
