This Collection opens a whole new world for Orchestral Tools, who are well known for their Berlin Series, a virtual Orchestra that set a new standard and is used by many high-profile film composers in Hollywood and around the world.
A UNIQUE SOUND There is one vision and everything is built around it: Special sections like 4 Contra Bassoons playing in unison, a Bass Trombone Ensemble, a Cimbasso Ensemble or 12 Basses + 6 Celli playing together in octaves. METROPOLIS ARK I includes different French Horn ensembles: A big 9 piece Horn Section for soaring, thick Horn melodies and a smaller 3 piece Horn Ensembles, specifically designed to play chords. Together with uncomparable Powerchords recorded wet at the scoring stage with two different Guitars and a sinister massive Choir singing at the highest dynamics, this Collection will rise your compositions to a whole new level.
A FLEXIBLE WORKING TOOL Instead of pre-mixed sections, METROPOLIS ARK I offers pure and unprocessed instrument groups to give you all the flexibility to arrange your own orchestrations. Extensive Articulation Sets additionally offer Swells, Crescendos, Glissandos, 2 different lengths of Marcato, Shorts, etc. on more than 75GB of compressed sample material.
