About

Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors is the companion to our critically-acclaimed Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion virtual instrument. Recorded in the same focused, neutral, and highly-versatile hall, this library offers the rest of the orchestra: strings, brass, winds, and choir ensembles, all deep-sampled in sections for maximum control and flexibility.

The heart of the library is our custom orchestrator engine that transforms single MIDI notes into beautiful, lush chords and textures across multiple ensembles. Unlike “pre-baked” orchestral libraries, Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors gives you individual control over the voicing of each section – for example, violins/viola, celli, and basses can all play unique chords, voices, and intervals. We’ve also recorded two octaves of unison notes for each ensemble allowing you to create your own chords from scratch!

The highly flexible sound of Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors, recorded with three mic positions, is suited equally to chamber music and classical mockups as it is lush film scores and epic cues. Every section has its own unique mic mix controls and output routing so you can mix each orchestral ensemble to taste. Film, TV, and game composers will love the versatility of this library and how quickly their orchestral ideas can be transferred to the DAW.

We know that you will love the power and flexibility of Rhapsody Orchestral Colors, and as always, we hope this instrument will inspire and enhance your music. Enjoy!


Interface & Engine


Requirements

FULL VERSION of Kontakt 5.3 – NOT Kontakt Player
Please note that as Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors is a KONTAKT library (full version – not player), your system must be able to run KONTAKT. Older operating systems may have issues installing the required KONTAKT version 5.3 so please verify that your system supports it before purchasing this library.

When using this collection, your memory and CPU usage is entirely dependent on the density of your orchestration and mic positions used. For example, using only stage mics will cut RAM and CPU usage by about 66%. Using all mic positions and all instruments loaded at once will be more taxing on your system.

“If you are looking for an all in one complete orchestral sample library that won’t break the bank and still sound legitimate – look no further than Rhapsody Orchestral Colors and Rhapsody Orchestral Percussion.  These libraries were recorded in the same hall so it makes mixing a breeze.  Combined, these two libraries are a must-have for quick yet realistic-sounding orchestral compositions.”

Rhapsody Orchestral Colors & Percussion Review

“I am a big fan of Ensemble libraries. When I first heard about Rhapsody Orchestral Colors I couldn’t wait to check out the functionality … it did not disappoint. The samples themselves sound fantastic and I really love the dynamic range going from ƒƒƒ (pretty damn strong) to pp (very quiet) … [RSO] is a wonderful tool to sketch with and the samples sound so good you can use them without having to orchestrate out all of your parts. ISW has created a great sounding set of powerful orchestral ensemble & chord tools that anyone can afford AND quickly learn to use.”
