Orchestral Ensemble Essentials 2 packs the right sonic ammo for film, games or pop scoring.With clever programming integrating Live’s effects and features, Orchestral Ensemble Essentials 2 brings immaculately recorded symphonic instruments into your Live session. It’s not only a great update to the already released Orchestral Ensemble Essentials, but makes for an ideal starting point for new users as well.
Orchestral Ensemble Essentials 2 includes the following sections with a huge assortment of articulations per category:
Full Orchestra - Recorded with a full symphony orchestra performing articulations in a variety of arrangements. Articulations include sustained notes, staccato notes and pre-arranged major and minor chords.
Strings - Beautiful sordino (strings with mutes) articulations. These will work wonderfully for subtle underscoring or soft pop arrangements.
Brass - Muted articulations, effects and a ‘Noble Brass’ patch.
Woodwinds - Includes tongue-in-cheek low staccatos featuring bass clarinet, as well as a variety of arranged textures and phrases.
Orchestrator - Orchestrator patches combine several instruments into one rich sounding chord arrangement - great for quickly sketching harmonic structures.
Special Effects - The arranged special effects are among the highlights of ProjectSAM’s Symphobia series. The FX racks comprise samples of exotic layered textures, from discordant woodwind beds to string glissandi to layered brass swells. Each Orchestral Ensemble Essentials 2 rack contains a set of tools to enhance the realism and production level of your track.
