    It's May, 2019, and still no 8Dio Century (Strings & Brass) version 2.0 updates.

    Any feedback on this from 8Dio would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Imo either they've gone back and recorded more material or they're waiting on an update on their Gui (with maybe stage placement tools)?

    No, I have not emailed them.

    I'm not sure if they check this thread, I'm guessing they do, but regardless, I think it would be nice to hear some feedback on when they expect the 2.0 updates to be released.

    I wonder if the Century Brass 1.2 update is to replace the 2.0 update? Or perhaps 8Dio just released it to keep us eagerly excited for the coming of Century 2.0? I did notice that a few of the features discussed in the 2.0 update were implemented in 1.2 which is fantastic!

    I am also curious as to whether or not Colin is still investigating the idea he had on pre-EQ'd tonal balancing options to blend Century with other commercial libraries as well as the converstaions surrounding pre-panned orchestral positioning- providing film score related microphone mixes?

    Thoughts and insider hints are welcome : )
    Plus we can keep the steam rolling on this library as I personally feel that is was swept under the rug, underrated and wasn't properly praised for what it truly achieved.
     
  6. To me maybe the most underrated brass library out there, really plays well and sounds great.

    This is just in the meantime, and the 2.0 version is still planned for later this year.

    Agreed, sounds veeeery close to CSB. They do need release samples on some arts to be really playable. The recently released Studio Woodwinds seems to have raised the bar even further. Hoping for Century Woodwinds to at least equal that. They may be bringing Century Brass up to that same level for homogeneity? And Audiobro's recent brass may have convinced them that they really need an effective stage tool right in the gui ?...
