Hellooooooo! How do you do? I was just seeing Cinebrass out!
I was fortunate to hear the recordings for Audiobro's MSB over the summer, and i can tell you that the captured tone is exquisite.
It blows away everything i own.
OMG, that looks like a winner. And even if there is a lot of recorded articulations, it seems that the scripting is doing the heavy lifting here. There's auto divisi with polyphonic true legato, automatic short articulation switcher, even crescendos and trills are tempo synced. This really looks like a next generation brass library. I want to hear how this sounds!
There's not much to analyze yet is there except my sense of shock...
It is clearly a shot across the bow of CSB's recent announcement. They're telling all of us "hold on to your money until you see what WE can do!"
The lineup is awe inspiring. They have gone so far above and beyond. Four individually recorded cimbassos, who ever asked for that? This is clearly aiming to be the "last brass library you ever buy." Putting all of this under the control of an auto divisi engine with polyphonic legato is going to be, not just a game changer, but a necessity for any realistic productivity. That's the main workflow bottleneck with Berlin Brass and there's "only" 11 individually recorded instruments there. The auto divisi also implies a consistency of sampling & programming across all the instruments (which BB sometimes lacks).
The price is going to be high. Like I would guess 1600-2400. If anyone guesses less than 1200 prepare for an Afflatus-style reality check. I don't really see this is a competitor to CSB for that reason. CSB is 400 for new entrants and 280 for those of us who own CSS.
In the end it comes down to the sound. If they captured great sounds, this will be worth it for industry professionals.
I cant believe his website is still not allowing access for anyone in Russia, and its been like that from the get go (so I had to buy Lass through my israeli friend back in 2010)
how paranoid you should be to do something this stupid in this day and age? I cant even view the website
it reminds me of 8dio who wouldn't sell anything to Russia and China, until you bug the life out of their support
What a bunch of nonsense
