The Core – The Ensemble Engine
The Ensemble Engine works through a number of independent arpeggiators and velocity envelopes, heavily inspired by the Sonuscore Origins-Series.
Create Complex Arrangements With Simple Chords
Create pulsating rhythms and 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 provide 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.
- Every slot can be assigned to one of five different modules.
- Assign percussion to the arpeggiator to create pulsating rhythms.
Compose Faster with Full Instrumental Groups
Choose from 300 Presets in Three Categories.
- Orchestral Colors – The Orchestral Colors presets are practical combinations of instruments that can be played live on your keyboard. Simple keystrokes and chords yield a rich orchestral sound.
- Orchestral Rhythms – The Orchestral Rhythms contain simple and useful playable patterns of 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!
Export Your Custom Performance
Drag and drop MIDI to your DAW – Once you have been inspired by a preset, drag and drop the arrangement of your performance to your DAW. Unleash the power of the ensemble engine onto your personal template, change notes, combine different patterns and make them your own.
Take Full Control Over The Ensemble
Work quickly and intuitively with our straightforward user interface.
On the Engine page you can access all individual controls for each of the five instrument modules. Short notes can be arranged with the arpeggiators, while sustained notes can be shaped with the velocity envelope. Create the orchestral colors as you need them and let the magic happen.
- Arpeggiator – The arpeggiator creates fascinating melodic patterns to give your project a rich and lively orchestral feeling. Change the pattern of the arpeggiator with the rhythm stepper. If needed, you can modify almost every parameter to stay in full control of your orchestral color.
- Velocity Envelope – Shape Your Sustain Sounds – The Velocity Envelope adds a recurring dynamic movement to a sustaining note. The centerpiece is the envelope shape, which can be drawn freely.
Play The Instruments Freely
Create full and detailed orchestrations from scratch. Play your ideas and your melodies freely with the single instrument patches.
Aside from the Ensemble Instrument, “The Orchestra Complete 2” also contains 152 single instrument patches. Included are all standard sections and articulations from a symphonic orchestra, including percussion and bonus instruments.
Ensemble-Multi Patches: Unleash The Full Orchestral Power
Multis take the Ensemble Engine even further toward instant playability and epic sound as they load and layer multiple instances of THE ORCHESTRA. The easiest way to create complex orchestral arrangements.
There are full playable orchestral multis for single articulations that work perfectly for quick sketching and layering. Orchestral Rhythm and Animated Orchestra Multis combine multiple instances of the Ensemble Engine to create 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.
The instruments for “The Orchestra” were recorded in Budapest at the renowned Studio 22 in their traditional seating position and mixed and edited with great attention to detail. This way the different sections blend together perfectly in the same room. All essential articulations are available, including playable true legato samples and multiple round robins for short articulations.

“The Orchestra Complete 2” by default loads each instrument in the appropriate design. If you prefer a different design, you can switch it anytime via the instrument settings.
