Audio Reward has launched a new dual-voice orchestral rompler instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Orchestrata uses a set of public-domain orchestral samples as its source, which Audio Reward re-sampled for use with its DOSA engine. The samples were then edited and re-mastered through a valve and tape mastering processes.
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.
- 1,700+ samples, 184 different articulation/voice/section combinations, over 2.8 GB of audio material and 100 snapshots.
- Includes Bassoon, Oboe, Clarinet, Flute, French Horn, Tuba, Trombone, Trumpet, Contra Bass, Cello, Viola, and Violin.
- 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.
- Innovative scene controls allowing you to define 3 scenes (A, B & C), each containing volume, pan and pitch settings, and then morph between them.
- DOSA engine effect to subtly change playback to be more like a real player and their nuances of bowing, plucking and breathing.
Orchestrata is available from Kontakt Hub for £26.25 GBP. Requires Kontakt 5.7 or higher, full version.
