What I didn't say is that there was about 6- hour gap between the actual purchase and my forum posting. So apparently, they had fixed it by then as it was clearly a mistake.I bought it about an hour ago and no gift :-(
On the VLOG page of 8Dio it shows Century Brass for tomorrow.Unfortunately no Century Brass tomorrow. Looks like Century Harps is the suprise for not one, but two days!
You can use CB with most orchestral sample libraries. Just because they have Century in the title doesn't mean they're only supposed to be used with others in the series.Suppose we would get Century Brass Bundle with Requiem tomorrow (I know I'm crazy here having those wild irrational thoughts), what is the main selling point of the Century Brass Bundle for somebody not owning Century Strings? Goes it well with Anthology Strings?
CSB doesn't cost much more, for example.
I have NISS Brass for a little bit more punch. And also the Brass of Nucleus.
What I am mainly missing would be a Brass library in the Trailer Brass category, which this is not, I guess.
So this would be more of the same I already have? Or has this a different (emotional) flavor, that you just don't get with other libraries?
The sound reminded me of John Williams in some arrangements.
Great and very helpful reply! Thank you!You can use CB with most orchestral sample libraries. Just because they have Century in the title doesn't mean they're only supposed to be used with others in the series.
As to whether you'd prefer it or not to CSB is entirely personal. It's as easy to play and has many more articulations including real mutes. But CSB has been cleverly programmed so that you can switch out one instrument and replace it with another and the performance will remain the same which might appeal to your workflow. I personally think CB is the better library but it's quite a close call in many ways.
Both have a wide dynamic range so you could do trailer music with them, although I'd be saving my cash for the JXL library if that is the main stylistic aim.
