    I don't touch 8dio after getting one of their pianos. It is terribly scripted, terrible to play and mix, and the interface is god awful to work with. Turned me off to anything they do.

    I know what you mean. But aren’t the pianos a bit older? I only have their 1928, and I’m hoping that Century Brass is using their latest GUI. I’ve tried their try pack and seemed pretty good.

    Don't know and I'll likely never know. There are too many outright complaints about the inconsistencies in their libraries for me to bite. Might get more balanced opinions on the thread about century brass, though:

    Would you suggest SF Studio Brass? I've been going back and forth with this one myself. Also, between pro version and regular. I can't afford to make the wrong choices as this will be it for a while, then I'm stuck with it..LOL

    I don't have much experience with those libraries, sorry. People mostly seem to be liking it, from what I'm seeing. Pretty expansive. But spitfire has a very different workflow than other stuff, so you should probably do some research on their products themselves.

    Finally, no matter what you do, you should wait for a sale.

    I have SF Chamber and Albion so I’m familiar with the workflow. And I get an EDU 40% off. Thanks for your feedback.

    Ever since i've gotten their Adagio series, I sort of not wanting to opt for 8dio for orchestral stuffs. Even though they have recorded the sounds beautifully, there are a few flaws in that library such as out of tune sounds and other noises which they've said it's intended for realism. Those really turn me off from purchasing anymore of their orchestral products. Kinda sad even though i like other patches as well as the sound recorded in general. Patch like the spiccato feathered sounds beautiful. I wonder whether Century Strings have this issues or not ?

    True their older libraries have not been updated or really worked on...However, their attempt at reimagining the Adagio/Agitato series with Anthology was a fail in my opinion. Something went awry with the sound, and just thinned out. However...Century Brass is supposed to be a newer library, and a labor of love...so I am hoping that it's a killer.

    90’s Retro Trumpets as on sale.
    90’s Retro Trumpets are on sale. Maybe that's like the Cinebrass 2.0 we are talking about? Dunno.

    Hi. I write cinematic orchestral music. Not quite classical, but a good variety. From what I hear, Century Brass is a good all around work horse, which is what I need I think as my main library.

    What about Audiobro's MSB? I've halted all my plans for new brass library purchases until I hear demos and walkthroughs of MSB.

    Well, I can get Century Brass for 50% off at the moment. So I doubt MSB will be anywhere near that. Lol.

    I cannot comment on Century Brass, unfortunately. But I have Cinebrass (Core and Pro) as well as Cinematic Studio Brass. For cinematic music, I think either of those could meet your needs, but for my part I recently replaced Cinebrass with CSB.

    Why don't you look at Infinite Brass?
