The Orchestra is a revolutionary all-in-one 80 player orchestral library whose heart is our breakthrough Ensemble-Engine that empowers you to convert your ideas into music. Simple and incredibly fast.

Sonuscore: "We found a way to revolutionize your way of composing complex orchestrated music. Its a new simplicity, a more natural approach to cope with multifaceted orchestral colors and rhythms."

The idea behind The Orchestra

Orchestral libraries have become more and more complex over the last years. Developers captured every nuance of symphonic orchestras in countless different articulations. But with a tight deadline, having endless possibilities is not necessarily a good thing.

With this library, Sonuscore brings to life a simplistic approach to orchestral composition, giving you both innovative tools to create quick ensemble sketches with minimal effort or write complex orchestral arrangements in all detail.

Paint your orchestral canvas in as broad or as detailed strokes as you want.

Your ideas, your music – all in one instrument.

The core - The ensemble engine

The Ensemble Engine works through a number of independent arpeggiators and velocity envelopes, heavily inspired by our Sonuscore Origins-Series. Create pulsating rhythms and even inspiring full arrangements from any combination of notes. All of this without relying on prerecorded phrases – you have the full control. It will work, no matter what chord or note you play.

With minimum loading times, a vast amount of presets provides you with full ensemble colors right out of the box.

  • Independent arpeggiators and velocity envelopes create vivid and powerful orchestral colors.
  • Load up to 5 different instruments in independent slots and play them together.

Choose from 192 presets in three categories:

  • Orchestral Colors
    The Orchestral Colors presets are practical combinations of instruments that can be played live on your keyboard.

  • Orchestral Rhythms
    The Orchestral Rhythms contain simple, useful playable patterns for separate sections of the orchestra that make use of our Ensemble Engine.

  • Animated Orchestra
    The animated orchestra presets go even further, and create complex orchestrated rhythms from any played note. This is where the magic happens!

The instruments for The Orchestra were recorded in Budapest at the renowned Studio 22 in their traditional seating position and mixed and edited with great attention to detail. This way the different sections blend together perfectly in the same room. All essential articulations are available, including playable true legato samples and multiple round robins for short articulations.

    "An orchestra library that’s light on RAM but not on sound quality, offering looped orchestral phrases at the same time – a great sketching tool (and more) that is easy to use." - by Alex Arsov

    Great Place to Shop

    Bought "The Orchestra" from Sound Sandbox; they were helpful, communicated well, and made the process painless. A few days later, pleased with the product, I upgraded to the flagship "The Orchestra Complete 2" and again, they were extremely helpful. It has been my experience that you buy this kind of software either from a large, anonymous mega-company, or you buy from some friendly guy who knows very little about what he's selling. Sound Sandbox gives you the best of both worlds; friendly and knowledgeable communications and advice, and all the efficiency of the national "big-guys." Highly Recommend!
