Intro Trailer
Kontakt Library 
'The Orchestra: Strings of Winter' is an independent instrument and revolutionary Kontakt Player library based on the groundbreaking Ensemble Engine developed specifically for 'The Orchestra', which lets you turn your ideas into music quickly and easily.
MIDI Export
Simply drag & drop MIDI from the Engine right into your favourite DAW. You can change notes and rhythms for every exported clip. Thus, making it a breeze to create variations and changes without overwriting arpeggiators and envelopes. You can also use the exporterd MIDI files with different instruments - even those from other sample libraries or Plugins.
The Articulations
'Strings of Winter' contains 60 articulations, spread across seven sections, and additionally, four instruments with String Ensemble FX.
Articulations Playthrough
European String Orchestra
A 41-piece string orchestra was split into five sections, performing a number of detailed and extended techniques for 'Strings Of Winter' (e.g. Trills, Sul Ponticello, Harmonics, Col Legno, Bartók Pizzicato). The resonance and raw complexity of these new articulations was captured in the classic room of Studio 22 in Budapest. All sections were recorded in their traditional seating position.
Mongolian State Morin Khuur Ensemble
The Morin Khuur is the national instrument in Mongolia, also called "horse head fiddle". The traditional instrument has two strings made of horse hair and is played with a bow which is also strung with horse hair. This gives the instrument a delicate and airy sound. The Morin Khuur Ensemble was recorded at White Arch Studios in Ulan Bator, with an orchestra of 15 players split into high and low ensemble.
​The Core: The Ensemble Engine
'Strings of Winter' features the same powerful engine as The Orchestra from Best Service. This Engine works through a number of independent arpeggiators and velocity envelopes. Create pulsating rhythms and inspiring full arrangements from any combination of notes. All of this, without relying on prerecorded phrases. It works, no matter which chord or note you play. With minimum loading times, a vast amount of Presets provide you with full ensemble colours, right out of the box.
You'll be able to:
• Create vivid and powerful colours with independent arps and envelopes
• Load up to five instruments in independent slots to play together
• Assign one of five modules in every slot
• Access individual controls for each of the five instrument modules
• Create the orchestral colours you need and let the magic happen.
• Take full control over the ensemble
The arpeggiator creates fascinating melodic patterns to give your project a rich and lively feeling. Change the pattern of the arpeggiator with the rhythm stepper..
Export your Performance
Drag & drop the arrangement of your performance directly to your DAW. Unleash the power of the Ensemble Engine, change notes, reinforce the unique sounds with other instruments and make the music your own.
Play the Instruments Freely
Play your ideas and melodies freely with the individual instrument patches. In addition to the ensemble instrument, individual instrument patches and articulations are also available.
Unleash the Full Orchestral Power With Multi-Track Patches
Multis take the Ensemble Engine further towards playability and they load and layer multiple instances. Aside from the Ensemble Instrument, 'Strings Of Winter' also contains 64 single instrument patches from the separate sections, and as a bonus, full ensemble risers, crescendos, falls and hits.
