The flagship of the Palette line!
 An extensive set of orchestral instruments to bring your cinematic ideas to life.



26.6 GB Virtual Instrument for Free Kontakt Player

62,976 samples (24 bit/44.1 kHz NCW)



OVERVIEW




THE ENSEMBLES

The core of “Palette – Symphonic Sketchpad” are the strings, brass and woodwinds ensemble patches. With our players in standard seating position across the stage we recorded the full range of each ensemble in unison, from lowest to highest note. Instruments play together when their ranges overlap and drop out when they reach their limits (see graphic below). We’ve dubbed this approach “True Ensemble Recording.” The result is a rich, playable patch that’s natural, unscripted and full of life – instantly gratifying and perfect for quickly laying down ideas without sacrificing realism.



CHOIR, PERCUSSION, PIANO & HARP

Our 24-piece choir features separate Womens & Mens sections performing sustains and staccato articulations in 3 vowels (Ah, Oh and Mm). PSS also offers 21 essential tonal and atonal orchestral percussion instruments, sampled in up to 7 dynamics with 5 round robin for both left and right hand (where applicable). Standard hits, rolls and other unique articulations are included. The drums, cymbals and auxiliary instruments are combined in one simple GM-style patch to minimize your track count. We also added 6-player ensemble trailer drums and hand percussion patches with the v1.1 update. Our piano is a beautiful Steinway B Grand, recorded in the hall with 6 dynamic layers and multiple round robin. The concert harp patch features standard plucks and a unique “glissandi maker” script, which simulates realistic pedaling to produce hundreds of scales you can perform at any length or speed by simply sweeping your controller’s keys up and down.




TRAILER TOOLS

No modern all-in-one cinematic sketching solution would be complete without a set of custom sound design and trailer tools for adding instant impact to your score. “Palette – Symphonic Sketchpad” includes over 250 unique hybrid samples in 7 categories – Impacts, Sub-booms, Reverses, Whooshes & Transitions, Risers, Downers and Braaams – all custom created by our team of sound designers. There’s also a dual-layer subtractive synth patch to add extra grit or low-end to the orchestra.

DEAL REVIEW



 It's no secret, but I was exceptionally impressed with the instruments in Palette right off the bat. Everything you need to compose a modern Orchestral composition is included. There are strings, brass, and woodwinds ensembles. A 24 piece Choir with Women's & Men's sections performing sustains and staccato articulations is also included. Additionally, there is 22 essential tonal and atonal orchestral percussion instruments, a Steinway B Grand Piano, and a Harp. Palette contains an impressive amount of articulations and a healthy collection of trailer tools with over 250 hybrid samples in 7 categories that include Risers, Downers, Impacts, Downers, Sub-booms, Reverses, and Whooshes/Transitions. Lastly, Red Room Audio also surprised me with a provided dual-layered Subtractive synth.


You get a vast amount of instruments that can either be used alone or complement your other orchestral libraries. If you want to listen to how impressive this library is, please watch the walkthrough video by Red Room Audio or the other Preset only walk-through video found below.


Not only is the regular price worth every penny, but during this limited time special through APD Deals makes this a must-have.
 I give this deal my highest recommendation!
