A comprehensive collection of Orchestral FX

Orchestral FX & Elements is a large collection of short ensemble and section phrases and percussion one-shots composed, orchestrated and conducted by "Beethoven-Award" winner Kostas Varotsis. Tension is the perfect resource for quickly adding that orchestral flare you are looking for in your next cinematic score. Recorded with a large 76-piece orchestra, Tension is jam packed with orchestral gems like runs, stabs, rips, bends, flutters, risers, clusters, and a whole lot more. In total, youll find 100 patches filled with endless inspiration. For example, when opening the strings clusters patch you wont just find one or two samples, but multiple variations of string section clusters all across the keyboard. In addition, a large collection of percussion one-shots have been included to round out this collection.

Tension Screenshot

Tension has been formatted for Kontakt 5, MachV 3, EXS24, and Reason 7. The patches are organized in six main categories: Orchestral Sections, Combinations, Tutti, Cues, Bends, and Reverses. In addition, the kontakt version also has a bonus section of “merged instruments” as well as over 30 multis combining various effects to create an even larger palette of unique and inspirational content.

Please Note: A full version of Kontakt 5.3.1 or MachFive 3 is required for the Kontakt and MachFive patches. These patches are not compatible with the free Kontakt Player or UVI Workstation. The NN-XT and Combinator patches were made in Reason 7.1.

System FAQs - Tension: Orchestral FX & Elements

Q: Can I use the FREE Kontakt Player for playing libraries in "Kontakt format"?
A: No! All "open Kontakt format" libraries require a full version of "Kontakt" sampler. The FREE Player can play the sounds in demo/test mode only. All libraries on our web site including a Kontakt Player licence mention this in the "system requirements"!

Q: When trying to "Add Library" my Kontakt shows a message "No Library found"
A: Then this is not a encrypted Kontakt library, but an open Kontakt format. You can find additional hints for Kontakt Libraries in that Sounds & Gear Video
