IK Multimedia has announced the release of Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE “Classik Edition” for Windows and Mac, a lower priced, fully featured edition of the recently released Miroslav Philharmonik 2.

The new orchestra with legendary soul, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE features over 730 instruments, multiple articulations, a 10GB library, over 30 professional quality effects, 3 powerful playback engines, a synthesizer section, a built-in mixer and a whole lot more all for an introductory price of $/€99.99.

Comprehensive Instrument Library
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE is a complete lower priced orchestral virtual instrument designed to deliver the full power of Miroslav Philharmonik 2 to players and studios on a budget. The CE version offers the same engine and features of Miroslav Philharmonik 2 and provides a 10GB library of orchestral instruments covering all of the instrument categories found in the full version.

Don’t let the smaller instrument library size fool you – Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE is a complete orchestral workstation that includes a 10GB library with 733 instruments spread out across the entirety of instrument categories provided in the full version of Miroslav Philharmonik 2. And it includes all of the multi-articulation key switch instruments included in the full version.

Instruments in Miroslav Philharmonik 2 include: ensemble and solo strings, brass and woodwinds, full orchestra, piano, choirs, mallet instruments, orchestral percussion and more. The samples are 16-bit, 44.1kHz.

And just like in the full version, each of its instruments captures the uniquely human element that has made Miroslav Philharmonik 2 the industry standard for composers, soundtrack scorers, producers and more.

These instruments let you easily access the most used articulations for the chosen instrument type on the fly. Performers can switch from sustained to detache, staccato, legato, pizzicato or any number of other musical articulations without leaving the main instrument, a brilliantly simple way to compose with the perfect instrument character and tone without interrupting the creative flow. This means that when a player selects an instrument to play, they won’t just hear a note – they hear all the passion, pain, joy, suffering and excitement of the musician playing that note.

Powerful processing
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE comes with the complete collection of over 30 professional-grade studio plug-in effects from Miroslav Philharmonik 2 including equalizers, dynamic processors, filters, modulation effects, reverbs, delays and more. It also includes 4 of the best analog-modeled mastering effects from IK’s acclaimed T-RackS mixing and mastering suite for complete, in-the-box mixing.

Beyond these effects, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE also comes with an updated ConvoRoom convolution reverb unit that displays the physical space that is being acoustically represented.

With such a collection of effects, musicians can create professional, broadcast-quality productions straight inside Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE with no additional external processing required!

Play. Mix. Edit: Advanced control
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE uses the same Play, Mix and Edit pages as Miroslav Philharmonik 2 and SampleTank 3. These pages give musicians an extreme amount of intuitive creative control over Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE’s orchestral sounds. It comes with an easy-to-use instrument browser, a 16-part DAW-style mixer with per-channel effect slots and global send/return and a powerful synthesizer section with 3 sample playback engines and 10 high-quality filters for sound manipulation. With the synthesizer, musicians can quickly and easily transform a simple trumpet into a massive synth lead or a mighty brass ensemble into a dreamy pad – Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE literally lets composers explore the furthest reaches of their creative sonic minds.

Mobile composition
While Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE works with any standard MIDI controller, it is especially suited for IK’s growing range of companion mobile hardware controllers including the universal iRig Keys MINI, iRig Keys, iRig Keys PRO, and the iRig Keys USB line including iRig Keys 25, iRig Keys 37 and iRig Keys 37 PRO keyboard controllers.

Seamless integration
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE can be used on its own as a standalone or plug-in instrument or as an additional instrument collection inside of SampleTank 3 and SampleTank 3 Custom Shop sound and groove workstation.

Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE is available for purchase for the introductory price of only 99.99 EUR/USD until June 1st, 2016 (regular 149.99 EUR/USD). Prices excluding taxes.
