Splice Originals: Orchestral Serum is the latest release in Splice’s Coronavirus quarantine series showcasing what can be done without a traditional setup.
Harold O’Neal demonstrates how you can achieve an orchestral vibe from nearly anywhere with the help of plugins like Serum and samples like the ones found in this pack.
Pianist, composer, and producer, Harold O’Neal recorded MIDI at his Brooklyn studio in a wide range of pianistic and orchestral styles. We then took that MIDI and used it as a basis to create orchestral Serum patches and loops. The result is a pack of sounds cinematic in style and dreamy in quality with a touch of jazz inspiration.
Weave together your own sonic storyline with the sounds of keys, clarinet, cello, oboe, flute, viola, and more. Whatever you create with them, these sounds will conjure a feeling of grandeur.
Other recent Splice Originals titles include:
