  • Orchestral sections recorded as full-range ensembles, pre-seated on the stage.
  • Custom Kontakt scripting and interface offering repetition, simulated legato, octaver and more.
  • Approx. 18 GB library pool in 44.1 kHz 24-bit.
  • NI Kontakt Player 2 included.
  • Mapping/programming unlocked, audio/scripting locked.

Concept of Symphobia

Cinematic Ensembles
Symphobia is not your traditional orchestral sample library. Instead of focusing on individual instrument multi-samples, Symphobia offers ensemble multi-samples with a rich selection of orchestrations and articulations. These playable ensembles cover all of the sections from the orchestra, as well as the entire orchestra playing together. The reason is simple: the real thing sounds so much better. A staccato note played by violins, violas, horns and trumpets, together, correctly seated at the concert stage, will sound much more cohesive than a mixture of individual sample recordings of these four instrument sections. This makes Symphobia the ideal tool for creating big orchestral arrangements and orchestrations. In addition, a number of individual instrument articulations are available, such as violin section flageolets and horn section marcatos.

Cinematic Effects
The ensemble sounds make up about half of Symphobia. The other half is all about cinematic effects: performances that cannot be recreated using individual multi-samples. Like the ensemble performances, the effects are available in different orchestrations, played by different sections throughout the orchestra. You will find violin glissandi, as well as full orchestra rips and stabs. Every effect is available in a number of variations or articulations.

Pricing & Availability

Symphobia is expected to begin shipping in August 2008. It will have an MSRP of €999 / $1499 but it is currently available for the introductory pre-order price of €899 / $1349.
