Powered by the Native Instruments Kontakt 5 Sampler Player, the electronic download of the Complete Orchestral Collection from Big Fish Audio is a virtual instrument featuring a compilation of Peter Siedlaczek libraries including String Essentials (2nd Edition), Complete Classical Collection (2nd Edition), and String Tools.

Designed for composers, arrangers, producers, and sound designers, the Complete Orchestral Collection harnesses the advanced capabilities of Kontakt player and offers a comprehensive collection of fine classical sounds including choirs, strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, harp, mallets, piano, prepared piano, ready-to-use orchestral excerpts, and performance effects.

The String Essentials collection offers carefully programmed patches featuring a unified key switch system with instant access to all important articulations. The quintuple alternation switch offers precise control of the dynamic response of samples using various MIDI parameters. Professional sounding samples in five different lengths, three or four dynamic levels, runs, and natural release samples have been carefully recorded using three microphone placements: close (dry), normal, and ambient.

Built like a semi-modular synthesizer, the Complete Classical Collection utilizes the Kontakt engine to drastically manipulate sounds with synthesis functions such as filters, LFO, and effects. The script-based user interface allows for important parameters to be controlled with the automation-user interface. Tempo, length, and pitch of parts and loops can be varied with the Time Machine, while the dual-harmonizer allows you to create any desired interval combination. Used together with the micro-tune function, you can create Arabic, oriental, and other exotic tunings. A humanize function creates subtle tonal changes with every new note played. Another notable function is the attack function, which creates smoother transitions from staccato to sustained notes and allows accents to be blended seamlessly to create varied sounds.
