The New Century Ensemble Brass LITE overview

8Dio Century Orchestral Brass LITE is a lush collection of ensembles created from our larger Century Brass collection. Produced by Emmy Nominated Composer, Colin O’Malley and Academy, TEC, and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann, we feel confident it will become a permanent fixture in your template. We can’t recall having this much fun playing brass ensembles. The arcs have true emotional air and power. The short notes will rip your head off. What more can you ask for?!

Pulling core articulations from our larger Century Brass libraries, all instruments are mixed “in place” (aka in traditional orchestral seating position). No further panning is necessary. LITE features two mix options. MIX A is a more focused sound. MIX B is slightly wider and more ambient. The MIXES are identical to those featured in our larger Century Brass collections, allowing the instruments to be used together with ease.

All articulations have been balanced and reworked to ensure Century Brass Ensemble LITE remains a great sounding, but very low resource instrument!

The ensembles are created from the following instruments: 4 Trumpets, 6 French Horns, 3 Tenor Trombones, 1 Bass Trombone, 1 Cimbasso and 1 Tuba. There are unison and octave variations for each articulation, allowing composers to quickly sketch orchestrations and easily achieve a large sound.

Orchestral Brass. True Emotion

The heart of Century Brass 2.0 is its hyper-realistic sound, playability, and emotion. We held casting sessions and hand-picked the best brass players from an assortment of the finest orchestras from Europe.  The end result is an incredibly fluent experience where the composer can easily weave in and out of dynamics from the softest whisper to the loudest thunder. Century Brass 2.0 comes with an advanced built-in browser system. The browser offers you access to every articulation with the click of a mouse. But perhaps most importantly, it all just works.

Core Articulations. Faster Workflow

Century Brass Lite features core articulations taken from larger Century Brass libraries, the articulations are all chosen and designed specifically for fast and resource-light workflow. Each and every articulation has been individually balanced ensuring they stay very low resource whilst still sounding their best. LITE also features specifically designed unison and octave articulations for quick, on the go scoring, to easily sketch orchestrations.

One Patch. Instant Sound

LITE features one patch with ensembles created from a mix of the Century Ensemble Brass Instruments. It’s that simple. Quickly load the patch to sketch instant large sounding brass orchestrations.  The ensembles are created from the following instruments: 4 Trumpets, 6 French Horns, 3 Tenor Trombones, 1 Bass Trombone, 1 Cimbasso, and 1 Tuba.

LITE Mixes

LITE features two mix options. MIX A is a more focused sound. MIX B is slightly wider and more ambient. The MIXES are identical to those featured in our larger Century Brass collections, allowing the instruments to be used together with ease.

No further panning or tweaking is necessary, it all works right out of the box.

Modular Century

Century Brass 2.0 collection is specifically designed as modular libraries. Everything is designed to work together. All the Century libraries were recorded in the same hall and with identical microphone setups and core articulations. This way, you can build your own modular ensembles by combining both Solo and Ensemble Brass. You have the choice to specifically design your ensembles, whether it is designing a 1-10 Piece Trumpet Ensemble or 1-19 Horn Ensemble. Whether it’s an intimate section of Solo Brass – augmented with a Dual Horn. Or whether you just want to go all-out epic and use every available section. Century offers it all. The perfect modular experience.

We have now updated our flagship Brass series with a variety of enhancements to the internal mapping, patch variations and all-new mixes along with many other general improvements.

Century Brass 2.0 now includes two tailor-made “in place” mixes, with instruments situated in a traditional orchestral seating position. We expect the majority of our users will gravitate to using these new mixes for most purposes. Mix A is a focused balance, whereas Mix B is broader and more ambient. Using varied mix options on different instruments can help increase the separation in your sound, which is a great way to bring specific instruments into the forefront of your productions.

We have also optimized the entire library, allowing for more advanced features and superior performance on a variety of workstations. The entire Century Brass Collection now features our latest Chaos Effects, allowing you to customize the signal path and post-processing with over 140 impulse responses, stereo delays, EQ and much more.

This latest update also includes individually available articulations as well as several extended options, such as our “Poly-Time” articulations. These allow you to play Arcs at a speed that suits your composition, as well as fluently play these articulations in a legato style. We have also included our popular “Chordal” legato instrument variant, which features a true polyphonic legato with accurately sampled intervals, enabling you to play multiple harmonies within a single track.
