Orchestral Tools has announced the release a full symphony orchestra with meticulously sampled instruments. Developed in collaboration with the world-renowned Berklee College of Music, Berlin Orchestra (by Berklee) gives you everything you need for serious orchestral composition and scoring.

The instrument library allows you to construct individual parts, intricate voicings, and sophisticated arrangements with numerous solo instruments and sections.

“Our aim with Berlin Orchestra – Created with Berklee was to give students a comprehensive foundation of sounds that would serve as a point of entry into professional composition,” said Orchestral Tools CEO & Founder Hendrik Schwarzer. “This orchestra has everything they need to construct individual parts, intricate voicings, and sophisticated arrangements at the highest levels. The only limit is their imagination.”

Recorded at Teldex Scoring Stage in Berlin with the same peerless musicians and meticulous attention to detail as the other Berlin Series libraries, the Berlin Orchestra provides rich sonic textures that evoke the sound and feel of a live orchestra, with a level of subtlety and control for the most demanding compositional needs.

The instrumentation includes a complete string section with soloists and ensembles, a brass section with soloists and ensembles, a detailed woodwinds section, and a wide range of percussion instruments—perfect for a wide variety of educational and compositional projects, as well as professional scoring for film, television, and video games.

“The partnership between Berklee and Orchestral Tools is one that will benefit our faculty and students for years to come,” said Sean McMahon, chair of the Film Scoring Department at Berklee. “This incredible technology will provide a multitude of opportunities for collaboration, creativity, and innovation here at Berklee that we would not have otherwise—the ability to utilize a full virtual orchestra is more important now than ever before in an environment of remote teaching and learning. I am grateful to Orchestral Tools for this tremendous partnership, and look forward to what’s to come.”
