    ok guys - this is a piece I have written this week, it features the Century Brass, little fan fare section near the beginning, and various louder places through out.

    by no means a comprehensive test, but i love the tone!

    I don't understand the pricing either. US$499 for a solo brass library, which is not even recorded in position, and that is the discouted price? How much will it be once you add in the ensembles and it goes up to full price? Wow!

    It may sound nice, have some unique articulations and have some good dynamics. But I think I'll wait for Cinematic Studio Brass thanks.

    Great tribute to an amazing human Peter... thanks!
    Pricey? Egaads! When I think of all the money I've spent on spitfire libs...no, I don't think so..

    Still, I'm growing much more intrigued by the newer sound design focus of recent libs like Novo & The Orchestra...

    So from my experience of the solo Brass I have a few things to say,

    I do wonder why there are slightly different articulations for some of the instruments, the short Fanfare doesn't appear in the trumpets IIRC, and then there is a longer fanfare which only appears in one instrument also, so things like made it a little bit tricky to get multiple players doing identical articulations, may or may not be a problem for you.

    Some of the very very beginning portion of the note sounds like two players? It's quite nice, not a phase issue at all, more a nice unison, but for a solo instrument, not why that happens, in reality and in the mix, you'd never know and just adds to a nice note entry..

    But of course it's beta, and maybe fine.. just my observations..

    Flugel horn sounds very nice, for softer passages. Haven't used any of the muted arts yet, but a little play with and I'm excited to do so..

    Pete

    If they break it up post-launch of the ensembles (similar to their strings) I might pick up some elements from it.

    By this I mean buying a package like just "Trombones" - including the soloist(s) and ensemble.

    Oh just wondering, has anyone had any luck using an 8dio orchestral template with claire, century and anthology?

    Man, I was listening to your piece, when the violin came in, I thought you truly had some real instruments. Congrats on the Bohemian. I even own it, and hadn't thought how convincing it can sound....especially mixed a little "out of your face".

    Ahhh thanks guys...too kind..

    What's your thoughts on the Solo Brass? Do you think you will go for it?

    I haven't gone for the ensemble version, I'm not sure about it.
