Well, well... I had given up hope on BRASS 2, and here it is.
I opened it on my laptop last night and had a little look round. It does seem that some/all of the issues and request features have been addressed. I look forward to a more thorough exploration in the next couple of days.
I used the old version extensively on a big theatre show I just finished and had good feedback about heavily featured and quite exposed BRASS sounds (in both modern pop and trad jazz-ish arrangements). If the sounds on v2 are an improvement I'll be very pleased.
When can we expect an updated manual I wonder? I assume there must be one if they're actually selling the new version? The downloadable pdf is for v1, and would be very confusing to new v2 users.
Thanks for the new version Arturia.
