What´s Included?

TOC2 All Icons Banner

The Orchestra Complete 2 extends our entry-level instrument "The Orchestra" with more instruments, more presets and extended powerful features. Now including:

  • Horns Of Hell - More than 65 expressive brass articulations and 120 incredible and powerful presets, including a full Organ library.

  • Strings Of Winter - 60 string articulations, two new ethnic string sections and all additional content from Strings Of Winter.

  • Additional Presets and Multi-Instruments - More than 150 additional presets invite you to explore these additional sounds in conjunction with the full range of instruments that only "The Orchestra Complete 2" offers, bringing the total up to more than 475 playable orchestrations and patterns.

  • Revised Preset Browser - One of the biggest new features in THE ORCHESTRA COMPLETE 2 is the brand new Preset Browser. Explore the massive selection of presets with intuitive filters and categories. Finding the right preset for your mood or preferred style has never been easier.

  • MIDI Export - The Orchestra Complete 2 comes with MIDI-Export. Patterns and arrangements generated by the engine can be exported onto separate MIDI Tracks, opening endless possibilities.

  • More Requested Features - We also revisited the original ensemble engine, implementing smaller but highly-requested features like a switchable GUI and more MIDI controller assignment options.

The Core – The Ensemble Engine

The Ensemble Engine works through a number of independent arpeggiators and velocity envelopes, heavily inspired by the Sonuscore Origins-Series.

Create Complex Arrangements With Simple Chords

Create pulsating rhythms and inspiring full arrangements from any combination of notes. All of this without relying on prerecorded phrases – you have the full control. It will work, no matter what chord or note you play. With minimum loading times, a vast amount of presets provide you with full ensemble colors right out of the box.

  • Independent arpeggiators and velocity envelopes create vivid and powerful orchestral colors.

  • Load up to 5 different instruments in independent slots and play them together.

  • Every slot can be assigned to one of five different modules.

  • Assign percussion to the arpeggiator to create pulsating rhythms.

TOC 2 Main GUI Screen

Compose Faster with Full Instrumental Groups

Choose from 300 Presets in Three Categories.

  • Orchestral Colors - The Orchestral Colors presets are practical combinations of instruments that can be played live on your keyboard. Simple keystrokes and chords yield a rich orchestral sound.

  • Orchestral Rhythms - The Orchestral Rhythms contain simple and useful playable patterns of separate sections of the orchestra that make use of our Ensemble Engine.

  • Animated Orchestra - The animated orchestra presets go even further and create complex orchestrated rhythms from any played note. This is where the magic happens!

Export Your Custom Performance

Drag and drop MIDI to your DAW - Once you have been inspired by a preset, drag and drop the arrangement of your performance to your DAW. Unleash the power of the ensemble engine onto your personal template, change notes, combine different patterns and make them your own.

Take Full Control Over The Ensemble

Work quickly and intuitively with our straightforward user interface.

On the Engine page you can access all individual controls for each of the five instrument modules. Short notes can be arranged with the arpeggiators, while sustained notes can be shaped with the velocity envelope. Create the orchestral colors as you need them and let the magic happen.

TOC2 Arpeggiator & Velocity Envelope

  • Arpeggiator - The arpeggiator creates fascinating melodic patterns to give your project a rich and lively orchestral feeling. Change the pattern of the arpeggiator with the rhythm stepper. If needed, you can modify almost every parameter to stay in full control of your orchestral color.

  • Velocity Envelope - Shape Your Sustain Sounds - The Velocity Envelope adds a recurring dynamic movement to a sustaining note. The centerpiece is the envelope shape, which can be drawn freely.

Play The Instruments Freely

Create full and detailed orchestrations from scratch. Play your ideas and your melodies freely with the single instrument patches.

Aside from the Ensemble Instrument, "The Orchestra Complete 2" also contains 152 single instrument patches. Included are all standard sections and articulations from a symphonic orchestra, including percussion and bonus instruments.

Ensemble-Multi Patches: Unleash The Full Orchestral Power

Multis take the Ensemble Engine even further toward instant playability and epic sound as they load and layer multiple instances of THE ORCHESTRA. The easiest way to create complex orchestral arrangements.

TOC2 Ensemble Multipatches

There are full playable orchestral multis for single articulations that work perfectly for quick sketching and layering. Orchestral Rhythm and Animated Orchestra Multis combine multiple instances of the Ensemble Engine to create even more complex patterns.

The Samples: Rough & Edgy – No „Polished“ Sound

"The Orchestra" was recorded and processed with the intention to sound a bit rougher and more “honest” than the common orchestral Hollywood sound. It offers an alternative and promises straight and powerful sounds, punch and a vivid musical experience.

The instruments for "The Orchestra" were recorded in Budapest at the renowned Studio 22 in their traditional seating position and mixed and edited with great attention to detail. This way the different sections blend together perfectly in the same room. All essential articulations are available, including playable true legato samples and multiple round robins for short articulations.

Choose Your Favorite Interface Design

"The Orchestra Complete 2" by default loads each instrument in the appropriate design. If you prefer a different design, you can switch it anytime via the instrument settings.

The Orchestra: The Power of a Full Orchestra at your Fingertips

"The Orchestra" was developed for Best Service by Sonuscore / Dynamedion, the makers of Trinity Drums as well as NI Action Strings, Action Strikes and Emotive Strings.

Fazit

The Orchestra Complete 2 erweitert die Library um Bläser, Orgel und Percussion. Nun ist das Orchester komplett.  Ganze 475 Presets stehen bereit, eigene Patterns lassen sich programmieren. Somit lässt sich das Arrangement auch individualisieren. Es ist wirklich faszinierend, wie einfach und schnell man hiermit ein Orchester-Arrangement oder komplette Scores erzeugen kann – auch ohne Vorkenntnisse zum Thema Arrangement und Orchesterinstrumente. Dass dann die Klangqualität insgesamt hervorragend ist, macht das Ganze wirklich komplett. Ein tolles Tool.

The Orchestra Complete 2 ist für alle geeignet, die gerne sinfonische und klassische Elemente in ihrer Musik verarbeiten wollen, ohne sich aber mit der Theorie beschäftigen zu müssen. Trotzdem ist die Library auch für professionelle Anwender zu empfehlen, denn die können mit diesem System schnell musikalische Skizzen entwerfen oder auch kleine Filme im Handumdrehen mit klassischen Elementen vertonen. Zeit ist Geld

Presenting the best “sketchpad” for orchestral arrangements available today … and it brings its own sounds too.

If you read our previous article about this tool then you know that you can build your orchestra on your own, adding up to five different orchestral instruments/sections, combining it into the final instrument that will be triggered through your keyboard playing. So, it’s not just that you can choose patterns for further harmonization, but you can also set up the orchestra for that pattern to your liking.

Also, all sections and instruments contain the majority of widely used articulations, more or less all that you will ever need.

There are also some new instruments, as inside The Orchestra Complete we get the new Strings of Winter library that is otherwise sold separately, bringing some really cool articulations and sounds, adding a totally new character to this orchestra. I should also mention here that the Strings of Winter European 41-piece string orchestra sounds impressive and quite authentic. On the more exotic side we also get the Mongolian State Morin Khuur Ensemble, a two strings instrument from Mongolia.

All in all, I’m more than happy to have this one. Enough goodies to keep me and my orchestral arrangements happy through the winter.

Summary

The Orchestra Engine offers a creative goldmine of driving rhythms and animated orchestral textures, the content of which is entirely up to the user. The individual instrument patches, although relatively basic compared to more ‘specialist’ libraries, are very useful in their own right. However, it’s the Engine that’s the heart and soul of this library — just start playing and you’ll be hooked.

sehr gut

Fazit

The Orchestra Complete von Sonuscore und Best Service hat durch die neu implementierten Features, allen voran die Möglichkeit, die vorgefertigten Phrasen als MIDI-Daten in die DAW zu exportieren, enorm zugelegt. Klanglich ist die Sound-Library ohnehin auf der Höhe der Zeit. Egal ob als Inspiration oder Grundlage für neue Tracks, die Phrasen von The Orchestra Complete sind allesamt sehr stimmig und passend arrangiert.

Als klanglichen Zusatz bietet Sonuscore mit Strings of Winter eine weitere Library an, die die bis dato fehlenden Artikulationen von The Orchestra komplementiert und den klanglichen Rahmen der Librarys deutlich breiter fächert.

Insgesamt ein super Sound-Paket mit leichter Bedienung und klarer Struktur, sowohl einzeln (The Orchestra/Strings of Winter) als auch in der preislich attraktiven Komplettlösung The Orchestra Complete.

Fazit

Der MIDI-Export macht den großen Vorzug von The Orchestra, seine internen Arpeggiatoren zugänglicher und flexibler. Mit den Pattern als Noten zur Verfügung lässt sich schnell und effizient arrangieren.

Die Strings Of Winter Expansion fügt in den Streichern die Portion extravagante Klangfarbe hinzu, die bisher gefehlt hat. Diese kalten, rauen Klänge passen sich auch gut in den eher direkten und ungeglätteten Charakter der Bibliothek ein. Damit erweitert sich das Repertoire in Richtung dramatischer Filmmusik und speziell klanglichem Suspense erheblich.

"Best Service / Sonuscore takes its fan-favorite orchestral Kontakt instrument and expands on it in an epic manner. The Orchestra Complete 
is a gem for not only quickly sketching out orchestral performances and discovering inspiring new passages, but it also boasts a revised and updated sample pool with newly recorded cinematic and world strings articulations that have me falling in love all over again with this virtual instrument."

"Mich hat The Orchestra Complete rundum begeistert. Aus meiner Sicht sollte diese Library zur Standard-Ausrüstung eines jeden Musikers gehören, der gerne mit Orchesterklängen aller Art arbeitet. Man hat eine riesige Soundauswahl und über die Ensemble Engine mit ihren automatisierten Patterns erreicht man wirklich schnell überzeugende Ergebnisse." - Gerald Dellmann
