An exquisite orchestral library designed for beginners who want professional results.
Garritan Instant Orchestra is a completely new type of sound library, designed to create orchestral music very quickly and easily. Unlike conventional orchestral libraries, which require musicians to create scores using dozens of individual staves or tracks, Instant Orchestra can produce dramatic orchestrations with just one or two staves. As a result, almost anyone can sound like an A-list Hollywood composer.
The experience is empowering, addicting, and fun. Instant Orchestra provides an instantly playable orchestral library with many pre-packaged orchestral combinations and mash-ups, mood-based presets that range from orchestration simplifiers to complex evolving textures, and many orchestral effects.
Orchestral music instantly—just add imagination!
Orchestration has never been so easy. Instant Orchestra makes it possible to create orchestrations in minutes—from start to finish. Instant Orchestra includes amazing orchestral instrument combinations and effects, bombastic brass, ultra-lush strings, low-octave rumblings, spooky wind textures, mega-hits, wild overlays, silvery choirs, light glissy harps, ethereal textures, chaotic whirls, rises, glissandi, chord clusters, and much more.
Intuitive and easy to use
The premise of Instant Orchestra is to make orchestrating easy. The library does not assume any prior knowledge of scoring music or orchestrating. It also eliminates setup hassles. You can go from small to massive orchestrations very easily, with little loading and instant results.
Everything is orchestrated for you and ready to go
Garritan Instant Orchestra carefully mixes orchestral instruments from various instrument families playing in unison, in octaves, and tutti. These orchestral combinations range from light, delicate sounds to big, epic patches, all of which can fill out any orchestral gaps in your music. Immediacy drives the entire product. Also included are many special orchestral effects that you often hear in movies. These effects consist of glissandos, rips, clusters, harmonics, instruments playing in non-traditional ways, and a variety of techniques. These types of effects are vital to film and game composers.
ARIA instrument player included
The entire Instant Orchestra library is integrated into the ARIA Player—there’s no need to purchase a separate sample player. Instant Orchestra also features the Conexant Endless Wave technology for hard disk streaming of multiple combinations for large orchestrations. Instant Orchestra supports all popular formats, Mac and PC, as a standalone program or as a plug-in (VST, RTAS, and OS X Audio Units), and works with supported notation programs such as Finale.
Instant Orchestra vs. Personal Orchestra?
Instant Orchestra is an entirely different sample set. Personal Orchestra (see SKU#H85083) is comprised of individual solo instruments and homogenous instrument sections used to build orchestrations one staff or track at a time. Usually knowledge of orchestration is recommended.
Instant Orchestra is designed for those who know little about orchestration or do not have the time to build them. Instant Orchestra is for those who do not want to spend time building orchestrations with one instrument or section at a time. It consists of pre-packaged combinations of instruments, section mash-ups, orchestral effects, and mood-based presets. The idea is to provide a large variety of lush, playable orchestrations with the least time and effort, often using just one or two tracks or staves.
Instant Orchestra can be a perfect complement to the world’s most popular orchestral library—Personal Orchestra.
