PREMIUM ORCHESTRAL SCORING

The SYMPHONY SERIES WOODWIND ENSEMBLE delivers high-class orchestral woodwind recordings arranged in an elegant, supremely usable interface. Created in partnership with Native Instruments and designed for flawless integration with both Kontakt and Komplete Kontrol, this state-of-the-art virtual woodwind orchestra delivers unparalleled sonic depth and realism. It offers you a massive 36-piece woodwind ensemble sound. Control six fully independent orchestral woodwind sections – flutes, oboes, clarinets, saxophones, bassoons and contrabassoons - each with six players per section.

This library features 314 playable articulations, multi-layered true legato and sustain types, a range of staccato tonguing techniques with up to 8-round-robins, half & whole trills, sforzandos, swells, crescendos, decrescendos, time-adjustable arpeggios, and so much more. Add character and realism with an additional selection of orchestral woodwind effects – such as clusters, sweeps, falls, risers, stingers, tuning cacophonies, valve clicks and creative flourishes. Even straight out of the box, the sound is natural, full of personality, and truly huge. This library is available at a great bundle price in the SYMPHONY SERIES WOODWIND COLLECTION, along with WOODWIND SOLO. Together, these premium virtual instruments provide producers and composers maximum flexibility and the utmost quality at a fantastic price.

This library is part of the Native Instruments Symphony Series line. It is not included in Komplete or Komplete Ultimate. If you own Komplete, you're eligible for a great cross-grade offer from Native Instruments when you order Symphony Series Woodwind Ensemble.

DETAILED REALISM

The Dynamics knob allows composers to create expressive real-time performances. Each turn of the knob intelligently blends across the dynamic range of each articulation for dramatic tonal shifts. And for ensemble sustains, true legato and staccatos, use the Dynamics knob to blend smoothly across dynamic layers. Turn the knob for a fluid rise from piano to fortissimo with true legato sustains for each section.

Shape your own performance with Smooth Dynamics, Attack, Release, Tightness, and Motion controls. Create instant single, double, and triple tongued attacks for sustains, expressions and staccatos with automatic Repetition control, including dynamic accenting for staccatos. And you can precisely time expression articulations to score cues thanks to a dedicated visual display, tempo-synching and/or time-stretching options for most expressions.

Our intuitive legato system gives you natural flow with expressive options. Each ensemble section offers multi-layered true legato (p, mf and f) with fluid dynamic blending. And you can play any sustaining articulation with real-time sim legato in slur and flip styles, with interval response shaping and solo/duet polyphony.

EASY CUSTOMIZATION

SYMPHONY SERIES WOODWIND COLLECTION adapts to any workflow. Assign articulations to key switches quickly and easily – all articulation types are color-coded for fast visual recognition (mirrored in detail on the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards). To accommodate different composer workflows, the interface provides three options for switching articulations: MIDI note, velocity range, or MIDI CC messages. If required, you can even assign each section to a specific key range to create custom key splits for a particular composition. Then easily store your settings as Snapshots for instant recall in another project. And flawless KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series integration immediately puts key parameters under your fingertips. Created for the professional composer, the Symphony Series sets a new standard in orchestral scoring.

COMPLETE MIX OPTIONS

Open up the mixer page to craft the perfect blend of stereo master, close, mid, and far mics. With individual loading, volume and output routing for each position, you have full control over your mix – plus a range of effect options. All mixer settings can be stored, and easily recalled for other NKIs.

We give you more freedom with your section placements. In addition to mix control for each section and mic position, you also get independent pan sliders for each section and soloist. Rather than locking the sound with fixed hard-panned seating placements, we recorded the players at center stage, in a wide, well-balanced stereo field to give you freedom to arrange your way. This allows Symphony Series Woodwind Ensemble to fit seamlessly in any genre, style or mix.

INSPIRED CRAFTSMANSHIP

We developed the Symphony Series Woodwind Ensemble with Native Instruments’ own in-house design team over a 2-year period to create this unparalleled woodwind scoring solution. This collection is built from over 60 hours of recording during an 10-day session at Montclair Church in Oakland, CA. We captured the woodwinds with 14 high dynamic range large diaphragm Neumann studio microphones, from distances of 1 to 25 meters. We recorded directly into pristine low-noise time-coded Sound Devices 788 multi-channel recorders. The result is an amazingly detailed and powerfully rich sound, with outstanding noise-free fidelity and uncolored stunningly vivid acoustics. We carefully mixed them down to a brilliant set of 4 optimal blends: the tight and clear close position; the well-rounded and spacious middle position; the lush, fluid back-of-house far position; and of course the master stereo mix for that perfect instant out-of-the box sound.

    The file size in the description is wrong... I think the correct size is more like 30.53 GB. Knowing NI it didn't sit right that their library would not be only 3GB, and there are over 30 ~1GB pieces in the ul folder.

    Regardless, I want to give my sincerest thanks for such an amazing share, on the 4th of July no less :) Happy Independence Day to all people, not only Americans. May we all find the courage to assert our independence as our forefathers did over many generations.

    Thanks for the ensemble! Wasn't expecting to see it today here.

    Wondering if the SYNTHiC4TE release (assuming they were planning on releasing it) will still pop up here after this. Call it a hunch but I think they were planning on releasing it and FANTASTiC was just a bit faster than their courier(s). Thanks to all the groups and couriers out there, in this case it goes to FANTASTiC.

    Anyways, really looking forward to trying this and see how it compares to some of the other libraries out there. I am getting more and more into orchestration lately but disk space isn't free so I prefer getting the best library for the different parts to preserve some of it. I really like the workflow from the Native Instrument libraries thus far, like it's always top notch with their products. Too bad I'll have to wait for a few more weeks until after my exams before I can try these.

    Btw, does anyone anticipate any problems by mixing this release with the SYNTHiC4TE released Symphony Series stuff? Shouldn't be a problem, right?

    No, in fact BWW can get you only half way there. That's the problem with most orchestral sampled content. To get a hint of realism, PM techniques must be used, or a blend of PM and dry recordings (SampleModeling).
    It's not impossible to get the sound of real thing out of VSTi, but sampled content is not the right way into the future - probably the least efficient way of dealing with "realism" is to record everything IMHO.
    Sample modeling or Physical modeling is teh futurah.
    Thank you for helping us help you help us all.

    That's when my doubts appear - VSL Ensemble did all this in 2004, and all modern sample libraries keep repeating the same mistakes. For string libraries it's:
    1. Lack of rebow/same note legato repetition
    2. Lack of bow speed control
    3. Lack of separate upbow/downbow samples, with enough control
    4. Lack of anti-repetition algorithms (besides RR)
    Some devs managed to get the idea a bit (Embertone). Some are actually very good at it (SampleModeling Viola & Cello).

    For brass and winds it's the never ending problem with legato to staccato transitions - with only just a few lengths of short notes recorded (staccatissimo, staccato, tenuto) and timbre change that occurs (see Bravura Scoring Brass demos for example).
    Thank you for helping us help you help us all.

    I was already sold on SampleModeling's approach quite a while back. S. Lucato did an amazing job with Stradivarius and the hype was huge back in the day.
    And that's why they'll get my money - because unlike some, they're actually pushing real advancements to virtual instruments through physics and acoustic models, rather than trying to record 1000 articulations in the 'best space in the world' with the 'best players in the field' only to have their libraries suffer from the same problems as all the other counterparts, and aiming more for cashgrab than actual improvement.
    In this, I fully support SM (and several others too).

    Thanks both Plomerus and EtherealVoice, whenever I'm looking for expert opinions on Kontakt libraries and their counterparts in comparison I always hope your names pop up in the comment section. You seem both very knowledgeable and critical of all the stuff out there and that helps me make the best decision on what to try from here and eventually buy down the line when I think it has helped me enough in my own productions.

    As said earlier, unfortunately I can't chime in with my own humble opinion (I'm far less knowledgeable on the matter) at the moment because of my exams. But I'll be sure to take your criticisms with me whenever I do try it for myself. I am hoping those Symphony Series do stack up for me since I really like their workflow and my eventual goal isn't extreme realism. I am into making one of these so-called "fusion" genres and I hope they will prove to be sufficient enough for just that. But first, I have to start learning even using these to their fullest potential!

    Well, my music theory is quite solid and I like to think that my arranging is as well. But I really lack all knowledge about how actual orchestras and all the instruments that it consists out of work in real life. Like, I understand a violin has strings and a viola or bass generally has a lower frequency range. But I don't have a clue on how notes are practically played within the orchestra and what part of it is responsible for which octaves and the likes. And orchestral music seems to have its own guidelines opposed to any other form of music making, maybe because its long standing traditions and history.

    I've been considering studying it more thoroughly but at the same time it often feels like partially a waste because it's rarely comprehensive and part of the information goes past me. I guess I am just looking for a comprehensive and practical learning tool or guide to help me through the first parts of learning this entire classical orchestration thing. Especially since I don't want to get into writing 18th century Baroque or anything like that and guidelines or even "rules" aimed towards a style like that are completely wasted on me.

    I guess, now that I actively start thinking about it, I could really benefit from some kind of tutorial on movie score writing and orchestration. Since, to me, it seems like that's the genre that ties it all together and isn't too afraid of bending the guidelines and rules that are often somewhat enforced in "real" classical oriented pieces. Too bad I don't know of any learning materials like that, pretty much everything seems to be geared towards writing the flavor-of-the-month EDM style and making supersaws and I'm well passed that kind of stuff. Oh well, I guess I'll just keep my eye out for anything like that and make it my goal this summer to experiment with orchestration once I'm done with my exams.
