Availability:  


Eight gigs of world-class orchestra samples!

The MOTU Symphonic Instrument is a simple-to-use plug-in instrument that contains everything you need to compose complete orchestral recordings and productions. From solo instruments and small ensembles to full orchestral masterpieces, the MOTU Symphonic Instrument delivers.

Start with a massive 8GB library of brand new sounds from world class orchestras and musicians, recorded with pristine audio fidelity and careful attention to detail. Quality and variety abound in this virtual instrument. Add to that a simple, easy to understand, single-window interface to personalize your instruments. Adjust your sound quickly and intuitively with this MOTU sound collection.

To further enhance the stunning realism of your compositions, the MOTU Symphonic Instrument includes a built-in convolution reverb processor to produce the most realistic room ambiance available. Use authentic acoustic spaces, from orchestra sound stages to renowned concert halls to majestic cathedrals.

The MOTU Symphonic Instrument is a CPU-efficient plug-in that saves with your host application document for instant recall. Nothing could be easier!

The MOTU Symphonic Instrument is compatible with all major plug-in formats for Macintosh OS X and Windows (VST, Audio Units, DXi, MAS and RTAS).

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.

Brass ensemble
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.

Brass solo
The Brass Solo bank provides individual brass instruments playing on their own by world class virtuoso instrumentalists.

Classical Guitar
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
Two different 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
One 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
The 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 sound.

Percussion
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.

Pianos
Two 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
The 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.

Saxophones
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 repertoire.

Strings Ensemble
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.

Strings Solo
The Strings 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 Orchestra
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.

Voice samples
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 included.

Woodwinds Ensemble
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.

Woodwinds Solo
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.

  • Gets the job done, if you have a good enough computer

    As reviewed by David on 7/6/2009

    This software can sound pretty realistic, but you really need to work with it. The Convoluted Reverbs are a MUST, so if you don't have a strong computer you might want to look elsewhere. The downsides are, the piano is not its strong point, and I believe MOTU doesn't support this product anymore! Go to their website and check the forums out. I will say though that this program excels sweeping strings..
