Checking Out: Impact Soundworks Orchestral Bundle

 

This one I have to “highly recommended” for beginning and intermediate composers, songwriters, music makers and even pros like myself will get some great use out of this collection.

I’ve been using the Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors for a while now and when I first saw the developer had this bundle deal I thought it was too good to be true. The individual libraries sell for $766.00 but are offered for $399 as a bundle from Impact Soundworks 

The video is a real time poking around of the Orchestral Bundle which contains 5 Kontakt Libraries- Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion, Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors, Bravura Scoring Brass: Chords & FX, Vocalisa: Slavic Women’s Choir, Furia Staccato Strings.

Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors contains lots of really useful Orchestral legato, staccatissimo, sustain patches, FX, Chord Tools and unified keywitching which lets you change all your articulations with the same keyswitches across the Colors instruments. Plus a nice Choir patch!

Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion is well thought out with right/left strikes on separate keys and over all the orchestral timbre is realistic for a medium sized group.

The Bravura Scoring Brass: Chords & FX take me back to sitting in a room full of brass players and I am a huge fan of the sound. It is a limited version with only the chord and FX NKI’s of the much larger Bravura Scoring Brass library, but even with just the chrds and FX it is really flexible and comes with over 15GB+ of samples.

This was my first look at the Vocalisa and Furia. I found Furia Staccato Strings to have that bit that will really cut through for action and rhythmic music but I think I will need to spend more time with Vocalisa to get the most out of what this instrument is capable of (like what the demos show off!)

All the instruments from the Bundle are available from  Impact Soundworks
