Classical sound. Modern production.
The Presonus Symphonic Orchestra is more than just another sample library. It combines a complete symphonic orchestra instrument library with ready-to-use Studio One Musicloops for lightning-fast arranging and production that’s fully integrated into the Studio One workflow. You get everything from brass to woodwinds to percussion, plus a few plus more unique instruments like Bamboo Chimes, Thai Gongs, and more. In addition to traditional orchestral sounds, you also get a contemporary strings library that offers a different ambient character for modern productions. All told, you get a whopping 14 gigabytes of content all fully integrated into Presence XT.
Samples in the PreSonus Symphonic Orchestra feature multiple key-switch articulations per instrument, providing you with full control to create a realistic performance.. PreSonus Symphony Orchestra instruments display articulations with their names automatically, making it easier to input them on the fly, and Studio One 5’s improved key switch integration lets you filter articulation controls from playback processing so you can take advantage of Note FX and Chord Track while still using your favorite articulations. Furthermore, expression control gives you real-time, nuanced control over dynamics and expression—either while recording or in a separate automation pass. The result is realistic symphonic sounds that will breathe life into your compositions and your productions.
The composer's toolkit
Despite its filesize, PreSonus Symphony Orchestra is easy to navigate. The library is split into three Sound Sets: Classic Orchestra, Contemporary Strings, and Musicloops set. The Classic Orchestra Sound Set contains both solo instruments and sections for Strings and Brass, as well as presets for Woodwinds, Percussion, and Choir. The Contemporary Strings Sound Set includes dry, close-mic'd versions of the solo and section strings, which are perfectly suited for modern pop arrangements. Creating rich and colorful orchestral arrangements is easy thanks to the included royalty-free Musicloop library that combines sound and note information into a single file. Each of the 29 styles includes dozens of loops divided into musical sections that range from classical to pop and Hollywood-style Soundtrack. Composing and arranging has never been this easy or sounded this good!
PreSonus Symphonic Orchestra is available for individual purchase or as part of a PreSonus Sphere membership.
