Review: Symphonic AI by Sample Logic & Red Room Audio

 

Sample Logic and Red Room Audio are both well-known names within the virtual instrument world. Now, these two excellent developers have teamed up as a dynamic duo with their joint instrument, Symphonic AI. Symphonic AI takes the organic orchestral samples and editing of Red Room Audio and filters them through the animation and Kontakt scripting from Sample Logic to create a unique hybrid orchestral instrument, dripping with inspiration.

Thoughts

To say that Symphonic AI is a deep instrument would be a vast understatement. Not only can you play with raw orchestral samples such as violins and horns, but you can mangle, twist, and animate those sounds to create something orchestral, some synthetic, or something never heard before. As usual, Sample Logic have presented the best step sequencer available in a Kontakt instrument, but this time they stepped it up to even include MIDI Drag & Drop functionality for that sequencer. With four cores each consisting of two sound layers, the stacking and layering feels almost limitless. Pair that with a separate step sequencer for each core with any number of steps you want, and you have something I’ve not seen anywhere else. Red Room Audio have given us high-quality orchestral sampling and editing that is taken to a whole new level with the brilliance of Sample Logic’s deep Kontakt scripting and interface. This instrument is so deep that I can barely scratch the surface in this video review. I highly encourage you to watch the immensely helpful developer videos to get a full understanding of the possibilities of Symphonic AI. To Red Room Audio and Sample Logic, well done!

Facts

Symphonic AI works in the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher.
