Dating back nearly a year, this particular sound set project kept growing larger right up until the last few weeks. The entire project consists of 22 different Sound Sets, and 6 House Styles. These Sound Sets are for Kontakt 2 and Kontakt 3 users only. Feel free to contact me with any questions about the sound sets: soundsets at jonathanloving. However, when I try to load the samples Silver , Sibelius says "KontaktPlayer2 - The patch you're trying to load cannot be used with this application" Any ideas what may be the cause? Kontaktplayer which ships with Sibelius is a dressed down version designed to make the Sibelius Essentials sounds work with Sibelius.

A big, bountiful, powerful, expressive, sonically superior collection of top-quality orchestral sounds, recorded in a first-class concert hall, played, recorded and programmed by expert practitioners, waiting to burst into life in your compositions. Recorded by time Grammy nominated classical recording engineer Prof. Keith O. By selecting different mic positions, users can mix these sounds together to create any kind of natural ambience their project requires.

This eliminates the need for artificial reverb. Facebook Twitter. Beyond the orchestra's phenomenal recording quality is its ability to breathe life into the virtual world, creating a real space and filling it with sound. In the past, this meant adding reverb and effects, further digitizing and degrading the overall quality of your music.

The software triggers this "release trail" at the end of every note and adjusts the dynamics so that the samples blend seamlessly, truly placing the listener in the hall with the orchestra. For bit compatibility, please use PLAY 4. PLAY isn't just a sample playback system.

I compose music for feature films. I come from a classical background and my music is primarily for the orchestra with additional electronic elements when appropriate. When I compose, I have a full orchestra loaded into samplers. The cost of it really isn't an issue for me, because when I need to do the orchestral mock-ups I need to have the best sounding, most expressive orchestral instruments I can find. The big issue I have had with orchestral sample libraries in the past has been the way they were recorded.

Most of them were close mic'ed and not in a proper environment for an orchestra. No matter how much reverb you put on those recordings, they never sound good.

The sounds are inspiring to play because they sound so good. He most recently conducted the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a series of concerts where he performed music from classic films about Los Angeles. It's difficult to describe my enthusiasm about Gold in one sentence. The FX patches, the qlegato and inclusion of all the platinum articulations has made this the number one library for me.

Don't know what else to say; I'm your biggest fan. Just keep doing what you are doing. As a composer working in the computer games industry, Im often working to tight deadlines and turnaround times. It sounds first class, right out of the box, and I find I dont need to do any panning or EQing - trying to make instruments sit in the mix.

The emotional quality of the samples make my compositions sing and really show how much sweat and love were put into the creation of the library. As choir director, I need an orchestral sample set that exudes realism and impact, since our broadcasts cover the globe by radio and internet I'm pleased to report that Pro XP fits the bill quite exquisitely! While it's not exactly miraculous these days to have access to good orchestral samples, it seems nothing short of miraculous to me to have this level of quality and realism available at my fingertips.

There is simply no other library - at any price - that compares with the overall sound, usability and capability of EWQLSO. And of course the "Pro" expansions take the product so far into the next realm that the competition might as well pack up and go home! Across the board Pro XP's samples have a fatness to them that other libraries don't quite capture.

Ultimately, the level of warmth and detail in the recordings, multiple mic perspectives, flexible ensemble sizes, and wide range of articulations make Pro XP an obvious choice for anyone whose goal is to produce ultra-realistic MIDI mockups.

The production room and recording gave it a great finished sound out of the box. Anyone interested in adding sampled orchestral sounds to their productions would have to consider this terrific library.

No other orchestral samples have achieved this level of realism and fidelity. I can actually hear my compositions come together as I write them, because EWQLSO has the sound of a world class orchestra, right out of the box. It's a whole new world. This is a beautifully recorded and expensive sounding! Virtual is not a word I use very often but the Symphonic Orchestra is virtually perfect! A moment or two with the manual is enough to convince anyone with an interest in recording techniques that this is a very serious undertaking.

Talk about going the whole nine yards: these guys are purists to the point of obsession. I can't compare this to every orchestral sample library on the market but if there's a better one I'll be amazed. In short, this is a staggering library, and it is a rare treat that we see such a well planned and thought out product come to fruition in this way.

East West/Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra

It's another multi-DVD orchestral library! Does it merit a thunderous introductory timp roll or a feeble tap on a vibraslap? This ambitious project was conceived by two American producers, Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix respective heads of the East West and Quantum Leap sample library empires and brought to fruition by Grammy-winning recording engineer Professor Keith O Johnson. Making a library of this quality is not the sort of project you undertake on a spare weekend — in fact, making EWQLSO took a year of recording, editing and programming. For the library to live up to its creators' ideals, it was imperative to find a concert hall with great acoustics, and they seem to have succeeded, although for contractual reasons, the identity of the seater hall and its resident orchestra remain a mystery.
