Powered by the Native Instruments Kontakt engine, this electronic download of the Complete Orchestral Collection from Best Service gives you a virtual instrument containing a compilation of Peter Siedlaczek libraries, including String Essentials (2nd Edition), Complete Classical Collection (2nd Edition), and String Tools. Included with this download is the most recent version of Native Instruments Kontakt Player. 

Designed for composers, arrangers, producers, and sound designers, this virtual instrument offers a comprehensive collection of fine classical sounds including choirs, strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, harp, mallets, piano, prepared piano, ready-to-use orchestral excerpts, performances, and effects. The capabilities of Kontakt Player allow you extensive controls over many of the software's features. 

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. Orchestral samples in five different lengths, three or four dynamic levels, runs, and natural release samples have been carefully recorded in three distinct microphone placements: close (for a dry sound), normal, and ambient.

Furthermore, 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 microtune 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.

This library contains Solo & Ensemble Strings, Solo & Ensemble Brass, Solo & Ensemble Woodwinds, and Harp with comfortable access to different articulations and performances, as well as a large percussion section with many additional instruments.

This section contains over 100 singers, sampled at each semitone from aaa to zzz, men, women, mixed choir, bass, tenor, alto, and soprano. Also included are falls, swells, and choir voice effects. Whether you want a realistic choral sound or you are creating new timbres, these samples provide you with perfect material with which to work.
Orchestral Colours
Orchestral Colours uses pre-prepared orchestral building blocks. The result is a colorful mixture of hits, finales, passages, layers, and atmospheres, providing a collection of "mini-works" that are playable in any key. The tonal richness of this symphony orchestra creates a versatile body of sound.
