Woods Of The Wild – Mystery Unveiled

Reveal the beautiful, mystical side of orchestral music with “Woods Of The Wild”, the latest expansion into the world of “The Orchestra Complete”. This innovative, individually recorded woodwind section is obligatory for a rich and complete orchestral pallete. We’ve incorporated articulations with triple tongues, rips, and trills not only for woodwinds but even for additional wind instruments including the piccolo, alto flute, and English horn. Mallets and other wooden drums are also available in the collection to deliver the right amount of brutal intensity.

Woods Of The Wild includes:

  • 13 solo wind instruments with 5+ articulations each, plus bonus winds
  • 4 ensemble articulations
  • Massive percussion sounds, including: Taiko, Tom Ensemble, Snare Drum, and more.
  • More wood-based percussion, such as: Marimba, Vibraphone, Crotales, Celeste, and more.
  • A MIDI-export feature
  • 34 voicings for the powerful new Ensemble Engine
  • Pure Performance Legato – Makes legato instruments more intuitive to play

“Woods Of The Wild” works as a stand-alone instrument. It is also included in The Orchestra Complete 3.

The Mystical Timbre of Woodwinds

Woodwind instruments have a secret enchantment that opens doors, opens time portals, and produces stories in the land of faeries and satyrs. With “Woods Of The Wild”, “The Orchestra Complete 3” obtains the old magic of lost tales and heroes’ journeys.

The Ensemble

“Woods Of The Wild” is not simply a winds and percussion library. It explores new, untamed directions in music, with inspiring articulations and an ensemble engine that provides the ability to create fully orchestrated music with the press of a simple chord.

“Woods Of The Wild” reproduces the sound of woodwind instruments in their softest as well as loudest dynamics. All woodwind instruments were recorded in three dynamic layers and each sample was also carefully hand-edited to morph smoothly and seamlessly between each layer.

Pure Performance Legato

We are proud to introduce a completely redesigned performance legato engine. This allows you to play both fast true legato and staccato runs without any problems, as the engine can distinguish between both articulations without the need for keyswitches. We have paid special attention to the integration of the true legato transitions, fitting each of the more than 400 transitions per instrument independently into the intervals in a way that allows for a very smooth and playable legato.

The Core: The Ensemble Engine

“Woods Of The Wild” comes with an absolutely savage ensemble engine that includes the latest updates from “The Orchestra Complete 3”. The main page was updated with a new and improved Voicings selection. You can assign which instrument plays which note of the chord to allow for more realistic ensemble sounds. Or you can choose from our 34 pre-arranged Voicings. The Ensemble Engine is just like having a real-life orchestrator working for you.

Also included with “Woods Of The Wild” is the new Sequence Designer carried over from “The Orchestra Complete 3”. The engine works through three independent arpeggiators and two envelope engines. You can now create your own individual musical patterns in addition to the standard options. These sequences can be edited individually, giving you the freedom to create more detailed compositions.

With the Voicings and the Arpeggiator, it is easy to create pulsating rhythms and inspiring arrangements from any combinations of notes. There’s no need to rely on pre-recorded phrases when you have this level of unprecedented control at your hands.

  • Explore the 128 included presets using intuitive filters and categories
  • 38 Voicings or preset ensemble combinations
  • Independant arpeggiators and velocity envelopes create vivid and powerful orchestral colors
  • Load up to 5 different instruments and play them together
  • Every slot can be assigned to 1 of 5 different modules
  • Use the Voicings feature to assign chord tones across instrument groups
