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.

Orchestrata features

  • 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.
