Cinematic Studio Brass v1.0.0 rollerball's Lite Version KONTAKT screenshot
AudioZ Exclusive | 14 July 2021 | KONTAKT | 7.07GB
This is a light version of the Cinematic Studio Brass library. The library features a brass section as a combination of solo and ensemble instruments. The instruments are divided as solo trumpet, two trumpets, solo french horn, four french horns, solo trombone, two trombones, bass trombone and tuba. The instruments sound regal and epic, and the dynamics range from a warm mellow tone, to a loud, epic tone. The amount of articulations is good and the room ambience of the library is balanced and controllable. Like the other counterparts from this series, the legato is really smooth and expressive. The engine provides two speeds for a variety of transitions. Though it has a learning curve, the results are great. Also the libraries from this series blend well together because they were recorded in the same room. The library is quite versatile and can work in both softer and epic contexts. Overall, a great library with a good list of features and great legatos!


Following changes were made to the library:
1. The "Mix" and "Room" mic sample groups were removed. The default Mix isn't that great and the Room mic position doesn't add too much value to the library, and can be easily replaced by a reverb. The included "Close" and "Main" mic positions allow for a great deal of flexibility while preserving the sound of the hall the brass was recorded in as well.

2. The samples in the original release were in 24-bit 48kHz format. The samples were converted to 16-bit 48kHz and repacked into NKX containers. A null test results in a peak of -85dB, which won't be audible at all. Also, after quite some testing, no issues were found with noise floor build-up when playing lots of notes. The conversion process takes the size down to 7.07GB from the original 33.9GB, which is a 79% reduction!


However, one of the unfortunate results of the changes is that the Ensemble patch is no longer functional, and there are no real workarounds to solve this issue.

NOTE: Kontakt v5.8.0 or higher is required. This library does not work with legit full version of Kontakt and k'd Kontakt is necessary to use this library.

Thank you so much, rollerball.

Interesting challenge the workaround for the ensemble patches.

Best of luck

There is no easy way around that unfortunately, but let's see!

Yes, it does! It even eliminates articulations that are less used (at least in my case), so it is really helpful. Thank you for your work Rollerball. Keep it up please!

See you!

Thanks a lot Rollerball, insane lite version as usual !
I was asking to myself, is there a good repack to make with a 200Go ~ bank ?
Like, with your experience, and the things you usually remove from those banks, could you save like a half of a 200Go bank ? Or is it too much expected ?
(I mostly think about the Spitfire Hans Zimmer Piano but the question works by curiosity for any bank this big)

Cheers mate

Good question. Yes I probably can do that. But as I've said before, the primary motivation for these is personal use. Currently, I don't have anything that I really want which is that big in size.
The largest one yet was Audiobro's MSS, and it took a long time converting the samples and resaving the instruments. Not to mention, the space required during conversion.
So, if there's something that big that I see myself using, I'll definitely work on it! And I will be posting a tutorial, so you should be able to do it on your own too.

Yeah sure you need to find a personnal interest, it's wasn't a request, but a pure curiosity question. As I know that I'll follow your tutorial and make it myself if it's not too hard for my brain !
Thanks for your answer and the hard work mate !

Thanks a f#ck%ng million RollerBRO! You helped me save nearly 28 gigs!

In the near future it would be interesting to rely on nsemble patches, but I think this would make the package size increase significantly!

Anyway pal, please keep shaking our world!

The reason for the Ensemble patch not working is simple: All the Cinematic Studio Series libraries use the "Mix" sample group in the patches. Since these samples were removed, the patches are no longer functional. Also, there is no simple way to just replace those samples with another group, other than going through the whole instrument and changing each sample individually. Personally, it's not worth the effort as I don't use ensemble patches anyway.

However, some libraries handle it differently, and their ensemble patches are functional. Examples: Audiobro MSS and NI SSSE

Anyway, glad it's useful!

As always with rollerball : the best is yet to come !! :)

Personally : the ensemble patch is not important because you just use it to have an idea when composing,....

Hope to see the woodwinds 1.3 coming soon LOL !!! the update 1.3 is apparently very good regarding the new delay system ...

the close and main (16 beats) is the best deal, thanks for all your work rollerball !!

Thank you Mr.rollerball!

If the this library is updated with a newer version, can the Lite Version be updated relatively quickly?
  Resident 27.05.2020 24 363
+1743
Yes, it should be easy! Often these updates contain updated patches and leave the sample content untouched. So it should be quick and easy. In most cases, you can just resave the patches and make the necessary changes like changing the default mic position, and they'd work with the Lite Version.

But you repacked the samples, the new patch will not find the samples.

As I said in my comment, a batch resave will solve the issue. But anyway, if there are updates, I'll upload the updates too.

hi rollerball. you uploaded cinematic studio strings v1.5 minified but the full version was never posted here (I think it was v1.1 or v1.2). Could you share the full v1.5 version (or just the update) with us?
  Resident 27.05.2020 24 363
+1743
Yes it was posted here, but it has since been taken down by the developer via a DMCA complaint. So it can't be uploaded again. Some developers are very strict regarding their releases and take them down very soon after they get posted here.

ok thanks very much
ps. cant find the 1.5 version on the russian site either...
  Resident 27.05.2020 24 363
+1743
I'm pretty sure the version there is v1.5 as well. I actually looked at the official website, and it was mentioned that the v1.5 contained the Classic Legato patches and a few other changes. Since they were already included with the download of the original library from that site, I assumed it was v1.5.

Hi guys, I'm having problems with CSB 4 Horns trills. It doesn't sound or, eventually, some notes sound sporadically. Anyone else having this problem?

I just checked and they are working correctly. Are you sure that they aren't?

Someone else had a similar problem, so I'm assuming you weren't aware how trills work in this library. Contrary to other libraries, this library handles trills a bit differently. For example, you want a major second trill on the 4 Horns patch at C4. To get that, you have to press both the C4 and the D4 key at the same time. Similarly, to get a minor second trill, you need to press the C4 and C#4 key together.
To my knowledge, this technique for playing trills is unique to the Cinematic Studio Series libraries, and is consistent across all of them.
