The Orchestra Complete V1 - The Next Big Step
This brand-new complete bundle comes with 108 new presets - Colors / Rhythms / Animated. It includes the latest version of "The Orchestra", "Strings Of Winter" and Tuned Percussion in the Ensemble Engine.
An 80-piece orchestra, 60 new and pristine string articulations, countless ensemble presets and an incredibly expressive set of signature sounds, some from the large vastness of Mongolia, will make your orchestral colors and musical ideas go sky high. Dive into new sounds - some played on the sharp edge of sound.
The Orchestra Complete also introduces a highly requested, new feature, MIDI Export! Simply drag and drop the MIDI from The Orchestra Complete right into your favourite DAW. You can change notes and rhythms afterwards for every exported clip. Thus making it a breeze to create variations and emotional changes, without overwriting the arpeggiators and envelopes. You can also use those MIDI files with different instruments - even from other sample libraries.
The Complete Library features the revolutionary all-in-one 80 player orchestra - Strings, Brass, Woodwinds, Percussion, Tuned Percussion & Harp, as well as a lush sounding choir.
European String Orchestra
A 41-piece string orchestra split into 5 sections performed a number of detailed and extended techniques for Strings Of Winter (e.g. Trills, Sul Ponticello, Harmonics, Col Legno, Bartók Pizzicato). The resonance and raw complexity of these new articulations was captured in the classic room of Studio 22 in Budapest. All sections were recorded in their traditional seating position.
Mongolian State Morin Khuur Ensemble
The Morin Khuur is the national instrument in Mongolia, also called „horse head fiddle“. The traditional instrument has two strings made of horse hair and is played with a bow also strung with horse hair. This gives the instrument a delicate and airy timbre. The Morin Khuur Ensemble was recorded at White Arch Studios in Ulan Bator with an orchestra of 15 players split into high and low ensemble.
The Orchestra features a complete set of up to 6 articulations per instrument, including True Legato.
The complete library drastically expands the strings with 60 unique articulations spread over 7 different sections and additionally 4 different instruments with String Ensemble FX.
The Core - The Ensemble Engine
The Orchestra Complete features a powerful engine that works through a number of independent arpeggiators and velocity envelopes, heavily inspired by Sonuscore's Origins-Series.
Create pulsating rhythms and even 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 provides 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 one of five different modules
Take full control over the ensemble
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.
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.
Export your custom performance
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, reinforce the unique sound with other instruments and make the music your own.
Play the instruments freely
Play your ideas and your melodies freely with the single instrument patches. Aside from the Ensemble Instrument, "The Orchestra" also contains single instrument patches for all standard sections and articulations.
Unleash the full orchestral power with multi-track patches
Multis take the Ensemble Engine even further toward instant playability and sound as they load and layer multiple instances of "The Orchestra". There are Full Orchestral Multis for single articulations, that work perfectly for quick sketching and layering. Orchestral Rhythm and Animated Multis combine multiple instances of the Ensemble Engine for 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.
The Orchestra: The power of a full orchestra at the tip of your fingers
"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.
Dynamedion was founded in 2000 by Tilman Sillescu and Pierre Langer, two composers with university degrees in music. With a steadily increasing number of contracts and growing customer base it has since become a leader in soundtrack composition and sound design on the European computer game market. In 2005 Dynamedion produced highly successful, first benchmark live orchestra recordings for a German game soundtrack, setting the standard for large-scale projects in the industry. With numerous further orchestral productions for the video game industry, Dynamedion has earned itself a reputation for unsurpassed quality and integrity in this area.

"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

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.

Kompletter Test im KEYS Heft Oktober 2019
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.
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.
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."
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. Alex Arsov for SoundBytes Mag
