Century Ensemble Brass - Trumpets


The Century Brass Series stands as the definitive, state-of-the-art collection of ultra-realistic brass instruments. It is our most significant leap forward in orchestral deep-sampling, infused with emotion and intention in every sample.

The shell of Century Ensemble Brass is our custom-designed user-interface, offering virtually every option to express yourself. All simple. All on one page. Inside the shell, you will find the secret to Century Ensemble Brass: an exquisite collection of luxury virtual instruments, specifically designed for high-end, emotional realism. The Century Brass Sessions took place over two years, with hand-picked players from across Europe, over 700 hours of sessions, retakes, and even further retakes.

Century Orchestral Brass was created with several new recording and sampling techniques. All the legatos are not only layered in dynamics, but also offer completely smooth transitions, even when playing polyphonic legato. We also recorded a wealth of different short notes, so much more than the typical staccatos and marcatos. We recorded unique fanfare oriented short notes, with more bite and tension as well as more traditional articulations at multiple lengths. There are more arcs than you could dream of, and of course all arcs are now dynamically layered and recorded at multiple lengths, featuring true polyphonic legato.

Century Orchestral Brass is not a sample library to us. It is a truly emotional and realistic collection that is an ever-evolving, incredibly deep-sampled brass instrument. It can be anything you want it to be. The softest skin you ever touched or the thunderous end of a world. It can be subtle, it can be Forte, but it will always be lyrical.

True Polyphonic Legato. Seamless Expression

Century Brass 2.0 raises the bar for professional legato samples with the world's first true polyphonic legato. The polyphonic legato allows you to play as many notes as you want and have the engine trigger all the legato intervals. The legatos also allow you to move between dynamics seamlessly. The sound is truly authentic, dynamic, and lyrical.

5 Microphone Arrays

Century Brass 2.0 includes two new microphone mixes, with each instrument placed in traditional orchestral seating. Mix A is a gorgeous Stage Mix, and Mix B is a dedicated epic orchestral mix. We also give you full control to create your own custom stereo and 5.1 mixes using the original trio of microphones (Close, Decca, and Wide).

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 Europe. Century Brass 2.0 comes with an advanced built-in browser system. The browser offers you access to any articulation with the click of a mouse. But perhaps most importantly, it all just works.
