While many have access to thick, little synths, these days, few have access to a full string quartet, a tape machine or a Mellotron. Something of note is that while this library contains solo string instruments, it is not meant specifically for virtuosic passages, but instead smaller solos — usually performed by the principle player, also know as the first chair due to seating position — within the orchestra. There are many string libraries on the market, many of them have been around for years and years. The basic computer requirements for running this plugin is also very similar to what you would expect. In terms of pads, you get a choice between simple pads and complex pads, both which sound other worldly, dreamy and lush.
The patches may all be highly produced, highly engineered. The various instruments are conveniently pre-grouped, so all you need to do is select the ensemble you want and start playing. The most common sampler there is, is Kontakt Player. I'd likely hold out for that. They have keyswitch controls so you can program whatever articulations you need.
In this case, each of the plugins featured in the pack sample real orchestral instruments. Sure, you can layer more and more large libraries up with each other, but sometimes that just ends up blurring all of the detail and just leaves you with a big blob of mushiness. Most of its 240 players are clearly designed for maximum sonic impact, giving you the huge, larger-than-life sound typical of the biggest Hollywood blockbusters. Vibrato intensity and extensive dynamics are controllable by the user. Some of the most capable sound designers in the business were tasked with the creation of vocal pads from the sampled choirs and solo performances.
Contemporary and Modern Music There are a few orchestral plugins that are primarily geared toward contemporary music. Other users appreciated wide range of mood-based presets that make it easy to come up with specific feels and atmospheres. Useful features Analog Strings is a unique orchestral plugin. These patches now have longer final notes than our Runs Transitions Patch 1 which is based on real legato sampled staccatos.

This can range from high energy brass sections in a trap beat, to strings in a pop or world track. This can be pop, or electronic music styles. What you get are a collection of strings, brass, and woodwind ensembles, with a selection of classical and world percussion instruments. In addition to a huge collection of pre-recorded octave runs, the Runs Transitions Patches let you perform your very own ideas. Even with its relatively modest 6. At the center is a massive control called the Macro Control. We used ratings from online music production stores to determine which plugins were the most highly rated, highly recommended, and most sought after for each category and need.
But more than anything else, It has the sound of my current pop culture. A freshly-loaded 1st Violin multi patch. Yes, for the most part. Woodwinds are just as extensive, flute of different kinds, piccolo, clarinets, oboes, English horns, and bassoons. These playable ensembles cover different sections and groups from the orchestra as well as the entire orchestra playing together. Useful features Like we said, the Miroslav Philharmonik is a lightweight orchestral plugin. Analog Strings, while being sold as sort of a sample library, is actually an instrument in its own right.
But my aim was to strip away personal preference, and narrow down the choices to 5 specific orchestral plugins so that you will find the winner for your personal music production library. In addition to instruments, you'll also find replacement parts for orchestral strings. In the meantime, nothing out there sounds like Analog Strings. What others are saying The size and range of Majestica is understandably what garners the most attention. Especially the sweet graphical macros that almost look like electric lines powering and controlling the virtual unit hiding within Kontakt. One of the cool things producers like about this library is that they can almost literally work solely with the plugin itself to make orchestral music for film, as well as provide special effects. Bottom-line Majestica is the perfect choice for composers, film scorers, and music producers that like their orchestras big, loud, and dynamic.
Other Criteria There are a few other things to consider as well. But the addition of the Ensemble Engine definitely gives The Orchestra an edge when it comes to idea generation.

In addition, every slot has its own tempo mode slider, a fine adjustments slider and the possibility to create triplets out of 16th-based figures. Like everything else in the Berlin Series, First Chairs is recorded in-position at the Teldex Studios in Berlin, so there is no extra tweaking needed to fit right in with the rest of the series. The quantity and quality of libraries available is frankly staggering. Naturally you have every string instrument that can play either in ensemble or solo mode, and a choice of pitch and unpitched percussion instruments. Whether used on their own or as starting points for more creative experimentation, these presets reduce the time and effort required to create amazing music.
