Best Service releases "The Orchestra" by Sonuscore

-
Best Service

Best Service and Sonuscore have released The Orchestra, an all-in-one 80 player orchestral library whose heart is the Best Service Ensemble-Engine.

Sonuscore say: "We found a way to revolutionize your way of composing complex orchestrated music. Its a new simplicity, a more natural approach to cope with multifaceted orchestral colors and rhythms."

The idea behind The Orchestra

Orchestral libraries have become more and more complex over the last years. Developers captured every nuance of symphonic orchestras in countless different articulations. But with a tight deadline, having endless possibilities is not necessarily a good thing.

With this library, Sonuscore brings to life a simplistic approach to orchestral composition, giving you both innovative tools to create quick ensemble sketches with minimal effort or write complex orchestral arrangements in all detail.

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 pulsating rhythms and even 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. Compose faster with full instrumental groups.

Choose from 150 presets in three categories:

  • Orchestral Colors: The Orchestral Colors presets are practical combinations of instruments that can be played live on your keyboard.
  • Orchestral Rhythms: The Orchestral Rhythms contain simple, useful playable patterns for separate sections of the orchestra that make use of the 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.

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 88 single instrument patches for all standard sections and articulations in a symphonic orchestra, including percussion and as a bonus: choir.

Or unleash the full orchestral power with over 60 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.
  • 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.
