    Elysium (inspired by 8DIO's Century Brass)

    Recently got Century Brass 2, and the polyarcs in it are so lovely! Got inspired and made a short hybrid track from them. Maybe if you're wondering how the library does in a hybrid context or how it sounds you can check it out, all brass in it is the a6 horns long polyarcs patches :)

    Why don't more companies offer free or cheap trials of libraries?

    The other day I downloaded the 8dio century brass try pack.

    How dry can century solo brass get?

    I'm looking at century solo brass. Specifically the flugelhorn. I can't figure out from the demos whether or not I want it, because I don't particularly like the very wet sound of the instruments, and the project I'm working on is being orchestrated with a small size and very intimate sound in...
