WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT THE ORCHESTRA
- While the library suffers a little from being overly bombastic, in my opinion, some will instantly love this hyped style. I think it is probably better to have too much, as you can always pull things back. But the sound is certainly more epic and shouty than your typical orchestral affair.
- The data footprint of these libraries is tiny, making for incredibly fast loading. Even the large multis on our test system all loaded within 5-10 seconds, tops.
- This, however, does make the library feel to me quite big. Bringing a bazooka to a knife fight comes to mind. It’s a real bull to wrangle for anything subtle, but let it loose and it will quite happily destroy the china shop.
- A wonderful library for both novice and professional composers. Top-notch sound, flexible instrument selection and innovative features. Has Sonuscore surpassed itself again? Undoubtedly yes.
- The new MIDI-Export feature is excellent. (...) It’s a very clever feature that is perfect for songwriting. You can put together some rough ideas in your DAW using a piano or whatever your preferred instrument is, then feed that into the Orchestra for a fleshed-out orchestra arrangement.
- The sound of the full tutti orchestra performing a slow riser is amazing and quite scary sounding – perfect for spooking the neighbours!
- Highly recommended.
- I commented on the original Orchestra review on how quick and easy scoring with the library was, and nothing has changed. This is by far the best tool to have open when brainstorming ideas. I love the multi patches for instant gratification, and the individual instruments are now even better sounding than before.
- The Orchestra is an all-in-one epic orchestra encapsulating the same easy one-finger workflow from their other titles, making this perfect for those wanting to get up and running quickly with some rather convincing sounding pre-scripted arrangements.
- The oboe, in particular, is wonderful sounding, even with its minimal dynamic control.

More requested features
We also revisited the original ensemble engine, implementing smaller but highly-requested features like a switchable GUI and more MIDI controller assignment options.
THE CORE – THE ENSEMBLE ENGINE
The Ensemble Engine works through a number of independent arpeggiators
and velocity envelopes, heavily inspired by our Sonuscore Origins-Series.
Create Complex Arrangements With Simple Chords
Create pulsating rhythms and 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 provide 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 to one of five different modules.
- [NEW]: Assign percussion to the arpeggiator to create pulsating rhythms.
The Orchestral Colors presets are practical combinations of instruments that can be played live on your keyboard.
Simple keystrokes and chords yield a rich orchestral sound.
The Orchestral Rhythms contain simple and useful playable patterns of separate sections of the orchestra that make use of our Ensemble Engine.
The animated orchestra presets go even further and create complex orchestrated rhythms from any played note. This is where the magic happens!
EXPORT YOUR CUSTOM PERFORMANCE
Drag and drop MIDI to your DAW.
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, combine different patterns and make them your own.
TAKE FULL CONTROL OVER THE ENSEMBLE
Work quickly and intuitively with our straightforward user interface.
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.
PLAY THE INSTRUMENTS FREELY
Create full and detailed orchestrations from scratch.
Play your ideas and your melodies freely with the single instrument patches.
Aside from the Ensemble Instrument, THE ORCHESTRA COMPLETE 2 also contains more than 200 single instrument patches.
Included are all standard sections and articulations from a symphonic orchestra, including percussion and as a bonus: choir, glockenspiel, piano and an organ.
There are full playable orchestral multis for single articulations that work perfectly for quick sketching and layering.
Orchestral Rhythm and Animated Orchestra Multis combine multiple instances of the Ensemble Engine to create 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.
