Thanks to the all-new Kontakt engine, Complete Classical Collection has amazing new possibilities. Almost every important function can be accessed through the script engine, and every important control can be activated and remote-controlled. Kontakt’s engine is built like a semi modular synthesizer, and gives you the possibility to manipulatesounds drastically.
The completely script based user interface allows almost all important parameters to be controlled with the Automation-user interface. Complete synthesis unit with filter, LFO and effect section. Tempo, length and pitch of parts of the loops and phrases can be varied with the Time Machine. You can play the instruments with BreathControl or any other controller. The Dual-Harmonize function allows you to create any desired interval combination. Together with the Microtune-function you can easily create arabic/oriental/exotic tunings. Using the Humanize-function subtle tone changes are made to any new tone, and each note will sound a little bit different. The Legato-function lets you create good sounding legato lines. The Attack-function puts additional accents on any desired timbre. With this function you get smoother transitions from staccato to sustained notes, because the accent can blended in seamlessly and varied sound.
Complete Orchestral Collection uses Native Instruments' FREE Kontakt Player (Version 5.3 or higher) - so no extra player software is required.

Advanced Orchestra is very easy-to-use but with expanded capabilities thanks to the advantages of the newest software developments. Extensive use of key switching and direct-from-disc technology, new programs with multiple crescendo layers and instantaneous access to dozens of instruments and playing techniques. This complex yet compact and user-friendly sound library consists of all instrument groups of a large symphony orchestra. The strength of this sound material lies not only in its use in classical “real sounding” or “natural” structures and arrangements, but especially the complex phrasings and articulations, such as runs, trills or glissandi, are eminently suitable for all types of distortion and unorthodox treatment. Your imagination is free for experimentation.
The included Upgrade ‘97 adds functionality and features new instruments that could not be included in the original library including Bass Flute, Harp Single Notes, Percussion (crotale, 2 wind chimes, 3 shell chimes, bamboo chimes, tambourines, claves, cowbells, castanets, temple blocks, japanese bowls) and Hollywood Strings. All volumes contain new velocity switch programs for better dynamic control over f and p playing techniques.

Peter Siedlaczek's Orchestral Colours
Peter Siedlaczek´s Orchestral Colors created a new trend - the use of prepared, skilfully arranged orchestral building blocks. The result is a colourful mixture of hits, finales, passages, layers, atmospheres - a collection of "mini-works" which are playable in any key! The incredible tonal richness of a symphony orchestra, its expressiveness, dynamic, or its "power", makes it the most mighty and versatile body of sound. lt is no wonder that orchestral sounds have become an obligatory part of every collection of samples.
Peter Siedlaczek's Smart Violins

During the many recording sessions for Peter Siedlaczek´s String Essentials the idea of also creating a set of easy to use motions, movements and cadences was born in Peter´s head. This was first intended to be released as a complete library of musical phrases but sadly was dropped along the way. Now, many years later the first tentative steps to create this library have resurfaced and are released as a part of the Complete Orchestral Collection. Beautifully arranged and recorded by the maestro himself you will find a great playground for fast musical inspiration.
