Century Ensemble Brass LITE


8Dio Century Orchestral Brass LITE is a lush collection of ensembles created from our larger Century Brass collection. 

Pulling core articulations from our larger Century Brass libraries, all instruments are mixed “in place” (in traditional orchestral seating position). 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 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 ensemble was 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 you to quickly sketch orchestrations and easily achieve a large sound.

SOUND

One Patch. Instant Sound

LITE features one patch with an ensemble created from a mix of Century Brass Instruments. It’s that simple. Quickly load the patch to sketch instant, large brass orchestrations. The ensemble was 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, while 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. 

Orchestral Brass. True Emotion

The heart of Century Brass 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.

ARTS, SPECS AND REQS

2.0 update: What’s New? 

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.
