A workstation focused on orchestral instruments, ensembles and choirs
Philharmonik™ is a powerful integrated Orchestral Workstation combining the legendary Miroslav™ Orchestral and Choir sample collection masterpieces with a dedicated plug-in instrument specifically tailored toward classical sounds and arrangements.
Includes the legendary Miroslav Vitous orchestra and choir collections
Miroslav™ orchestral samples are some of the most playable and inspiring sounds ever produced for symphonic arrangements and composition. They've marked the atmosphere of hundreds of movies and productions and have become the tool of choice for many Oscar® winning composers.
Contains some of the most beautiful and lush sounding orchestral samples ever recorded
Never before has so much feeling and emotion been captured in orchestral sampling. Miroslav was able to bring out the rich character of symphonic music with a special sound that is unique and powerfully expressive.
True acoustic placement within the Dvorák Symphony Hall
For incredible acoustic realism, the string, brass and woodwind sections have been captured in the proper acoustic orchestral positions in one of the most famous symphony halls in the world, the Dvorák Symphony Hall in Prague. No need for simulation with panning, just call up the elements of the orchestra and instantly sound like a symphony. These sounds have a texture, warmth, and beauty that is unique in the sample world.
The Miroslav Philharmonik’s plug-in is based on an enhanced version of the SampleTank workstation architecture, offering 16 multi-timbral parts, with full control over the tempo and pitch of the sounds.
Each of the 16 multi-timbral parts can be loaded by selecting one of more than 1,200 orchestral instruments included in Philharmonik. All of the instruments can be easily found in neatly organized folders within the browser window.
Miroslav Philarmonik’s multi-timbral parts can also be saved as combi ensembles, allowing you to load an entire orchestral set with one click.
Each part also offers 4 insert effects, which can be selected among 20 high-quality classical-oriented effects, for creative sound design and arrangements.
Additionally, each part also offers up to 50 sound shaping controls, for maximum flexibility over sound sculpture.
Exclusively, Miroslav Philharmonik also offers a master effects section with individual parts’ send capability. These can also be selected among the 20 built-in effects.
Another unique Miroslav Philharmonik feature is the inclusion of a high-quality master reverb in its list of 20 effects, with an easy to use version of IK’s new CSR, Classik Studio Reverb.
Also included are IK’s other award-winning effects, like the warmth of the analog EQ and compressors derived from T-RackS and AmpliTube. These included effects are perfect for obtaining that smooth orchestra sound.
