'Orchestral Collection' is a brand new compilation of all Peter Siedlaczek's libraries ever released by Best Service. Enjoyable and easy to use, this is the most affordable and comprehensive collection of the finest Classical sounds, Classical choir, strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, harp, mallets, piano, and prepared piano, ready-to-use Orchestral excerpts, performances and effects.
This new product combines Peter Siedlaczek's 'String Essentials' Second Edition as well as the well-known 'Complete Classical Collection' Second Edition in one Kontakt Player 5 instrument with 26 GB of uncompressed sample content and more than 2800 Kontakt instruments. As a special bonus they added 'String Tools', a collection of newer released chords, excerpts and moods from an almost forgotten secret project.
This comprehensive, thought-through and ergonomic virtual string orchestra couldn't have been realised without today's computer and sampler technology. In its carefully programmed patches you will find many innovative solutions, to help achieve your music goals even more quickly. The result is a spontaneous, playful and intuitive handling of the sound material.
With a unified key switch system and direct, instant access to the all important articulations, including quintuple alternation switch (Staccato, Quarter Notes) and precise control of the dynamic response of the samples using different MIDI parameters.
'String Essentials' will enable you to focus on the most essential part of your activity - your music - creatively and easily. Just load and play it! New great sounding samples in five different lengths, three or four dynamic levels, runs and natural release samples have been carefully recorded using three microphone placements: close (dry), normal and ambient.
You choose the best sound for your music. Peter Siedlaczek did his best to use the power of Native Instruments' Kontakt sampler, down to the last detail. The result is a complex, yet easy-to-use musical instrument which you will play with enthusiasm and enjoyment!
Complete Classical Collection:
Thanks to the all-new Kontakt engine, 'Complete Classical Collection' has amazing new possibilities. Almost every important function can be accessed through the script engine, and every important control can be activated and remote-controlled. Kontakt's engine is built like a semi modular synthesizer, and gives you the possibility to manipulate sounds drastically.
The completely script-based user interface allows almost all important parameters to be controlled with the automation user interface. Complete synthesis unit with filter, LFO and effect section. Tempo, length and pitch of parts of the loops and phrases can be varied with the Time Machine.
You can play the instruments with BreathControl or any other controller. The Dual-Harmonize function allows you to create any desired interval combination. Together with the Microtune function, you can easily create Arabic/Oriental/exotic tunings. Using the Humanize-function, subtle tone changes are made to any new tone, and each note will sound a little bit different.
The Legato function lets you create great sounding legato lines. The Attack function puts additional accents on any desired timbre. With this function you get smoother transitions from staccato to sustained notes, because the accent can blend in seamlessly.
This very complex, yet compact and user-friendly sound library sets new standards for symphonic samples. Enjoyable and easy to use with expanded capabilities thanks to the advantages of the newest software developments.
Extensive use of key switching and direct-from-disk technology. New programs with multiple layers and instantaneous access to dozens of instruments and playing techniques. This library contains Solo & Ensemble Strings. Solo & Ensemble Brass, Solo & Ensemble Woodwinds and Harp with comfortable access to different articulations and performances, as well as a huge percussion section with many additional instruments.
These are sounds which have proven themselves in countless music productions worldwide.
Peter Siedlaczek's 5star winning 'Classical Choir' - just when you thought it couldn't get better, it did! This section contains over 100 singers, sampled at each semitone from aaa to zzz, men, women, mixed choir, bass, tenor, alto, soprano. Fantastic falls, swells and choir voice effects. Whether you want a perfectly realistic choral sound or you are creating new sounds, these samples provide the user with perfect material with which to work.
Peter Siedlaczek's, 'Orchestral Colours' created a new trend - the use of prepared, skilfully arranged Orchestral building blocks. The result is a colourful mixture of hits, finales, passages, layers, atmospheres. This is a collection of "mini-works" which are playable in any key!
The incredible tonal richness of a symphony orchestra, its expressiveness, dynamics, or its "power", makes it the most mighty and versatile body of sound. lt is no wonder that orchestral sounds have become an obligatory part of every collection of samples.
Another of Peter Siedlaczek's unique sample libraries, this is a comprehensive collection of runs, licks and other patterns, as well as long notes and legato steps played at different intervals, performed by a large violin ensemble. These are outstanding construction tools for creating perfectly realistic runs and melodic lines, playable in all keys.
Classical Boesendorfer grand piano in outstanding quality. Brilliant and clear. Also prepared piano with unconventional playing techniques and amazing sounds, thumb tack piano, honky tonk piano, and piano effects. In addition, you get a collection of the finest bonus sounds created by a Kontakt instrument.
During the many recording sessions for Peter Siedlaczek's 'String Essentials', the idea of also creating a set of easy to use motions, movements and cadences was born in Peter's head. This was first intended to be released as a complete library of musical phrases but sadly was dropped along the way.
Now, many years later the first tentative steps to create this library have resurfaced and are released as a part of the 'Complete Orchestral Collection'. Beautifully arranged and recorded by the maestro himself, you will find a great playground for fast musical inspiration.
