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. Kontakts engine is built like a semi modular synthesizer, and gives you the possibility to manipulatesounds 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 good 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 blended in seamlessly and varied sound.
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. 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 - a collection of "mini-works" which are playable in any key! The incredible tonal richness of a symphony orchestra, its expressiveness, dynamic, 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: 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. Outstanding construction tools for creating perfectly realistic runs and melodic lines playable in all keys.
Total Piano and more
Classical Boesendorfer Grand Piano in outstanding quality. Brilliant and clear. Also prepared piano: unconventional playing techniques and amazing sounds, thumb tack piano, honky tonk piano, and piano effects. In addition you get a collection of finest bonus sounds created by Kontakt.
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.
Ja, weite Teile der Complete Orchestral Collection haben schon einige Jahre in den Knochen stecken, das hört man auch. Und ja, es gibt inzwischen größere und bessere Librarys, die diese Collection in Bezug auf Realismus und Klang in die Tasche stecken. Aber dafür deckt die Collection ein weites Feld an Sounds ab, klingt nicht wirklich schlecht (stellenweise sogar sehr ordentlich) und frisst einem weder Speicherplatz und Rechenpower noch das Geld vom Kopf. Wer auf der Suche nach einem günstigen Einstieg in die Welt der Orchesterlibrarys ist oder eine Library sucht, mit der er auch auf seinem kleinen Notebook ein paar Skizzen anfertigen kann, der ist hier genau an der richtigen Adresse.
Excerpt: Lets drive
All in all, for that money all you need is a touch of compressor and convolution reverb and you can feel like youre driving a Mercedes. This is definitively not one of those typical under-200-dollar libraries. It sounds far better, and those parts that do not sound better are still far more useful than they might seem on a first sight. For 199 bucks you can compete with all those boys that use expensive toys. Yes, you will need some extra programming as those new expensive libraries are more and more on point, but the end result will be almost the same.
This is definitively one of those great flea-market buys one that you will never regret. Everything bad is good for something. Their bad that they have to drop the price so radically, even adding some extra material to prolong the selling period, and our best for getting such a good product for such nice a price. It happens, every now and then.
Visit, Bestservice buy the library and enjoy your Orchestral quality time.
Une bonne banque de son orchestrale pour Kontakt et une compilation très complète, que peut constituer un très bon outil de base ou un complément idéal d'autres palettes sonores classiques, au prix défiant toute concurrence.
Gerade als Einstieg in das Thema Orchester-Komposition. für Gelegenheitsnutzer oder zum Skitizzieren bietet sich die COC geradezu an, bietet sie doch ein Rundum-sorglos-Paket ine iner Qualität, die auch heute noch für viele Zwecke ausreicht.
Für diesen Preis: Daumen hoch!
Diese Library hat in der Tat etwas , was heutige "moderne" Libraries nicht immer zwangsläufig haben: einen eigenen Klang, eine eigene Farbe, eine Ästhetik und Charme.
Gar keine Frage dass man mit diesem Programmpaket eine komplette Produktion realisieren kann. Wer also "irgendwas" sucht, was in Richtung Orchester geht, bezahlbar ist und einen irgendwie umhaut, sollte hier bei diesem Geheimtipp unbeding vorbeischauen!

This is an amazing sound library/collection. For what I know, all products associated with Mr. *** are always impeccable however the reason why I offer 4 stars instead of 5 is because many of the sounds of the ADVANCED ORCHESTRA part of the library are not that good, especially compared with most recently developed products, however ALL THAT BEING SAID, the real value of this product lies on the rest of the volumes on it , especially Orchestral Colors, Smart Violins, String Tools and Classical Choirs. These parts are AMAZING, I mean, AMAZING especially if you think within the $200 price range context. I remember back in the days of Best Service's ProSamples, volumes 11 & 51 (around 2001-2004), I paid $100 (for both) just for 400 mb worth of Advanced Orchestra from the same library from Best Service, nowadays we are talking about 27 GB worth of sounds, however and believe it or not, some of the sounds, after 10 years, are the same samples from those old ProSamples volumes. But please as a reviewer, don't take me wrong THIS IS AN AMAZING PRODUCT, and I guess it offers way more than what might represent its price range. Without any doubt I guess many of the included libraries will never go out of date.
In the previous page I wrote about this product. Basically I'm dissapointed due to the low sound quality. Low price for a full orchestra but low sound quality.
I use it for film, documentaries, features and so on. What I'd like to know, since I've owned this product for almost a year, are there any updates that have been released? I can't tell.
