IK Multimedia has released Miroslav Philharmonik 2. Made in conjunction with master musician, jazz legend and sampling luminary Miroslav Vitous, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 is the next generation of the original virtual instrument used on many classical productions, film scores and pop hits.
With Miroslav Philharmonik 2 a user gets a complete selection of sounds that includes strings, woodwinds and brass plus a 9' concert grand piano, a harpsichord, orchestral chimes, a concert marimba, a vibraphone, a glockenspiel, and all the samples from the original Miroslav Philharmonik library updated with articulation switching and the latest effects.
Each of its instruments has been carefully crafted to convey human emotion. Its string, woodwind and brass instruments are designed to include an easy-to-use articulation switching system that lets a user effortlessly switch between flowing legatos, animated pizzicatos, elegant staccatos and more. In addition, its new mallet instruments have been recorded with different mallets for more sonic flexibility. And its acoustic piano's soundboard has been sampled to provide more sonic realism.
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 is based on SampleTank 3's 64-bit technology and comes with an instrument browser, a 16-part DAW-style mixer and a synthesizer section with 3 sample playback engines and 10 high-quality filters. It also includes 34 professional-grade studio plug-in effects from SampleTank 3 and T-RackS.
After the introductory period, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 will have a retail price of $/€499.99 ($/€529.99 for the boxed version). Upgrade and crossgrade pricing will also be available.
Current owners of Miroslav Philharmonik, SampleTank 3 and paid versions of SampleTank 3 SE can preorder the upgrade for $/€199.99* for direct download or $/€229.99 for a boxed copy with a USB flash drive.
