Full compositional palette
This orchestra was designed specifically to achieve the learning goals of the Berklee students and will serve as the new curriculum at Berklee College of Music. Created with students in mind, it is available to the public so that all composers can access this comprehensive orchestra to write with. Users can build composition skills by working with both solo instruments and full sections. For example, there are four separate solo horns plus a horn ensemble, each with its own specific articulations. Composers can write with individual voicings and blend instruments to create unique sections. This orchestra helps foster exploration of each instrument and ensemble, while allowing users to hone their craft.
In situ: Everything in the right place
All instruments were carefully recorded on the Teldex Scoring Stage in Berlin at the same natural gain levels, with musicians located in traditional orchestra seating positions. Strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion all blend naturally, in perfect balance. This leads to a true, authentic, and immediate representation of a given orchestral composition, right out of the box.
