Sonuscore–The Orchestra

The Orchestra, header

The Orchestra is a revolutionary all-in-one 80 player orchestral library whose heart is our breakthrough Ensemble-Engine that empowers you to convert your ideas into music. Simple and incredibly fast.

Sonuscore: “We found a way to revolutionize your way of composing complex orchestrated music. Its a new simplicity, a more natural approach to cope with multifaceted orchestral colors and rhythms.”


​The idea behind The Orchestra

Orchestral libraries have become more and more complex over the last years. Developers captured every nuance of symphonic orchestras in countless different articulations. But with a tight deadline, having endless possibilities is not necessarily a good thing.

With this library, Sonuscore brings to life a simplistic approach to orchestral composition, giving you both innovative tools to create quick ensemble sketches with minimal effort or write complex orchestral arrangements in all detail.

Paint your orchestral canvas in as broad or as detailed strokes as you want.

Your ideas, your music – all in one instrument.

The core – The ensemble engine

The Ensemble Engine works through a number of independent arpeggiators and velocity envelopes, heavily inspired by our Sonuscore Origins-Series. Create pulsating rhythms and even inspiring full arrangements from any combination of notes. All of this without relying on prerecorded phrases – you have the full control. It will work, no matter what chord or note you play.
With minimum loading times, a vast amount of presets provides you with full ensemble colors right out of the box.

  • Independent arpeggiators and velocity envelopes create vivid and powerful orchestral colors.
  • Load up to 5 different instruments in independent slots and play them together.

Compose faster with full instrumental groups

Choose from 150 presets in three categories:

  • Orchestral Colors
    The Orchestral Colors presets are practical combinations of instruments that can be played live on your keyboard.
  • Orchestral Rhythms
    The Orchestral Rhythms contain simple, useful playable patterns for separate sections of the orchestra that make use of our Ensemble Engine.
  • Animated Orchestra
    The animated orchestra presets go even further, and create complex orchestrated rhythms from any played note. This is where the magic happens!

GUIs
Play the instruments freely:

Play your ideas and your melodies freely with the single instrument patches.
Aside from the Ensemble Instrument, The Orchestra also contains 88 single instrument patches for all standard sections and articulations in a symphonic orchestra, including percussion and as a bonus: choir.

Or unlash the full orchestral power with over 60 multi-track patches:

Multis take the Ensemble Engine even further toward instant playability and sound as they load and layer multiple instances of The Orchestra.
There are Full Orchestral Multis for single articulations, that work perfectly for quick sketching and layering.
Animated Multis combine multiple instances of the Ensemble Engine for even more complex patterns.

The samples: rough & edgy – no polished sound:

The Orchestra was recorded and processed with the intention to sound a bit rougher and more “honest” than the common orchestral Hollywood sound. It offers an alternative and promises straight and powerful sounds, punch and a vivid musical experience.
