Audio Reward has released of Orchestrata for Kontakt 5.7+.
Orchestrata is a dual-voice orchestral ROMpler for Kontakt 5.7+. It offers a range of features and sound-shaping effects, most commonly found in synthesiser systems, that allow a user to obtain new orchestral and cinematic sounds.
Orchestrata contains samples from 12 orchestral instruments, each instrument has a range of appropriate articulations, and each articulation is sampled as a large section (5+ players), small section (3 players) and solo instrument.
The instruments included are:
- French Horn.
- Contra Bass.
Orchestrata uses as its source a set of public-domain orchestral Samples. Audio Reward took these and re-sampled the audio, taking special care that the results would work with Audio Rewards DOSA engine, then edited and re-mastering the files through their valve and tape mastering processes.
Orchestrata features a dual layer architecture (so you can mix two different voices together), drift controls, creative filters and modulation controls along with a unique gate sequencer for each voice and 4 sends for each voice.
Orchestrata includes innovative scene controls allowing you to define 3 scenes (A, B & C), each containing volume, pan and pitch settings, and then morph between them.
Orchestrata is the third product using the DOSA (Dynamic Oscillator Sequencing Architecture) Engine. DOSA is a completely new and unique approach to audio playback, it is designed to provide endless audio that subtly changes over time, adding realism, movement and interest to each voice.
Here, in the case of orchestral instruments, the DOSA engine effect is to subtly change playback to be more like a real player and their nuances of bowing, plucking and breathing.
Orchestrata comes with over 1,700 Samples, 184 different articulation/voice/section combinations, over 2.8 GB of audio material and 100 snapshots.
Price: £26.25 from Kontakthub.com.
NOTE: The Full version of Kontakt 5.7+ is required. Please do not purchase this if you only have Kontakt Player.
