The Garritan Instant Orchestra Sound Library re-invents the way orchestral music is created by simplifying and streamlining the process. It is designed to create full cinematic orchestrations from just a few lines of music. It has pre-packaged combinations and mash-ups, mood-based presets, and orchestral effects.

Intuitive and Easy to Use
The premise of Instant Orchestra is to make orchestrating easier, with minimal effort and without the complex hassle of sequencing and setups. The collection provides a practical shortcut towards orchestrating; anyone can create extraordinary orchestrations quickly and inexpensively. Go from small to massive orchestrations very easily, with minimal loading and instant results. This library does not assume any prior knowledge of scoring music or orchestrating.
Orchestral Combinations and Groups
Consists of various sections of a symphony orchestra playing in unison, in octaves, and tutti. These instruments can be homogeneous or combined with various instrument families to achieve a desired sound. Focus is on consonance, harmony, and euphony, where instruments play together and in concert.
Orchestral Special Effects
Includes many orchestral special effects in strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion. Effects consist of glissandi, rips, weird clusters, harmonics, textures, aleatoric sounds, instruments playing in non-traditional ways, and techniques that cannot be created with individual samples. The inharmonious textures are performed by different sections of the orchestra, and are valuable sounds for film, television, and game composers.
Mood-Based Ensemble Presets
Includes a collection of useful, pre-configured instrumental combinations tailored for certain moods. Ensemble presets give you a quick and easy start to setting up a group of instruments. These useful presets are ready to go and range from intimate to monstrous, spooky to sublime, and can evoke many emotions. Ensemble Manager makes it easy to load pre-configured and user-created templates.
