The MOTU Symphonic Instrument provides over 8GB of world-class orchestral
instrument sounds. The sound library includes a wide variety of musical instruments organized into soundbanks.
The Brass Ensemble bank provides unison performances of the various orchestra brass sections, including
French horns, trombones and trumpets. These presets provide the sound of the entire section playing the same notes in unison.
Both staccato and sustained variations are provided. For each virtual instrument sample (French Horns, Trombones and Trumpets),
two different sections of four players each were recorded in order to provide a more broad variety of sounds. For the French
Horns, an additional section of eight players was recorded for that big Hollywood orchestra French Horn sound.
The Brass Solo bank provides individual brass instruments playing on their own by world class virtuoso instrumentalists.
Two very different classical guitars are provided. Classical Guitar 1 is a custom made instrument played
with finger and nail. It can be used for a variety of classical guitar styles. With its more organic sound, it is well-suited
for the Spanish/gypsy style. Classical Guitar 2 is more appropriate for contemporary classical styles. Both presets provide
a variety of playing techniques, in addition to the normal plucked single string.
harp instruments, each with a distinctly unique sound, are provided. Harp 1 is soft and emotional, a truly unique sound. Harp
2 has a more bright, conventional sound suitable for a wide variety of musical styles. In addition, a variety of playing styles
are provided, including single plucked notes, glissandos, cascades and chords.
Historical instrument samples
of the most unique soundbanks included with the MOTU Symphonic Instrument, the historical instruments can add an extra level
of authenticity to your classical compositions and recordings. Of particular interest are the extensive harpsichord presets,
one of the most extensive harpsichord sample collections ever created. A wide variety of harpsichords were carefully multi-sampled,
and many presets even include the authentic, mechanical sound made by these virtual instruments when releasing each note.
Mallet presets provide notes played individually for a variety of mallet instruments, as well as a number of glissando effects.
Shieldmayer and Mustel instruments were recorded under the very best conditions to achieve an extremely clean and detailed
The percussion bank provides a comprehensive and memory-efficient collection
of orchestra percussion instruments, including several different types of gongs and timpanies. The Basic Percussions menu
preset provides a wide variety of orchestra percussion sounds, each assigned to a different key across the keyboard.
beautiful concert grand pianos are provided: A Yamaha C7 and a Steinway D. These piano recordings represent state-of-the-art
piano sampling, both in terms of the quality of the sound and the efficient use of memory.
pipe organs are organized into two major categories: Baroque (chamber) organs and Romantic (cathedral) organs. A wide variety
of baroque organ sounds are provided, each with a variety of stop configurations. These instruments were recorded in European
churches and preserve the sound of the acoustics of the church in addition to the sound of the instrument itself. The romantic
organs are larger cathedral organs recorded across Europe. These instruments provide organ sounds on a more grand scale and
sound especially authentic with the cathedral reverb settings.
Due to its relative youth
as a musical instrument, compared to its classical instrument bretheren, the Saxophone was not used in the classical music
repertoire. However, contemporary classical music adopted the saxophone as its popularity grew in the 20th century. Therefore,
it has been included in the MOTU Symphonic Instrument library to provide complete instrumentation, even for contemporary classical
The String Ensemble bank provides unison performances of the various
orchestra string sections, including violins, violas, celli and basses. These presets provide the sound of the entire section
playing the same notes in unison. A variety of playing styles and techniques are provided. In addition, these recordings were
made with each section placed in its proper position on stage. Therefore, when combined, the samples are spread across the
stereo field in a manner that is true to their actual position on stage.
Solo bank provides individual string instruments in a variety of playing techniques. In addition, they were recorded in mono
to provide the most authentic sound.
Tutti is a conventional musical term used
to describe the sound of multiple instruments all playing the same notes in unison. The Orchestra bank provides tutti ensemble
performances for brass, strings and the entire orchestra playing together. These presets sound big and, when employed judiciously
in a musical score, can be used effectively for emphasis. Several string quartet presets provide a nice intermediate sound
between the solo strings and the full strings (and full orchestra). The Orchestra Run and Orchestra Tremolo presets are exceptional.
Recorded in Moscow and in Europe, the Voices soundbank contains an exclusive and extensive sound library
of human choirs. Male, female and children's choirs are supplied with a variety of vowel sounds, including ah (as in the word
all), eh (as in the word every), ih (as in the word if) and oh (as in the word old). Both male and female soloist voices are
The Woodwinds Ensemble bank provides unison performances of the various
orchestra woodwind sections, including clarinets, flutes and oboes. These presets provide the sound of the entire section
playing the same notes in unison. Both sustained and staccato playing styles are provided. The clarinet and oboe sections
consist of three players each, while the flute presets consist of two different sections of four players each.
The Woodwinds Solo bank provides individual woodwind instruments in a variety of playing techniques. Again,
the solo instruments here were recorded in mono to provide the most authentic sound.
