80GB Full Orchestral Library with Multiple Section Sizes

“Diamond Symphony Orchestra” combines multiple Kirk Hunter libraries into one stunning full orchestral package covering:

  • Brass
  • Strings
  • Woodwind
  • Orchestral Percussion

Featuring out-of-the-box playability, a massive range of instruments and ensemble sizes to choose from, multiple articulations and a range of additional features, it’s the perfect library for those venturing into orchestral writing or anyone looking to layer and embellish current libraries (or even just for the excellent solo strings!)

 

Simple to Use with Realistic Performance Features

Diamond Symphonic Orchestra has several features to aid realistic performance, including:

IntervaLive® – this is used for legato notes. Raising or lowering the pitch wheel (TVEC2) triggers manufactured release samples that bend up or down to lead into the target note. Used full-bore, the effect is almost portamento; used more subtly it just adds a realistic transition between two notes. The farther you move the pitch wheel, the louder the transition effect. You can also dial the amount of bend up or down using on-screen controls.

Human Pitch Correction or “HPC” – Notes start a little out and then gradually adjust, simulating what real players do. You can control the amount of this effect.

Keyswitches  – These are labelled very clearly and are consistent across all instruments. If you want to tweak the attacks, basic controls are provided. The mod wheel always controls volume, unless it’s set up to control vibrato; beyond that, velocity, and the pitch wheel-controlled transitions.

This library sounds very realistic and doesn’t sound artificially clean – an effect that Kirk Hunter have cultivated very carefully. This is a great sounding orchestra and it has solo string programs to die for!

    :

    I purchased the Diamond Symphony when Kirk Hunter had a sale on and this VSTBUZZ deal is an absolute no brainer. I use it alone and along with 8dio and other really “high end” strings libraries (that are simply to slow to use for faster lines) to simply add further realism. Very easy to use but a bit too much choice when picking what versions you want to use from the library. Really great!

    Ok, bought and just learned that I have to download 100 files. yes, that’s right. 100 files, one at a time. each one a couple GBs. I bought this product, and I am not even through the fourth download and its already been an hour and a half. In addition, the installation instructions are like building the Death Star. Seriously ticked right now.

      There are a few different programs that you can use to auto download the links – our favourite is “uSelect iDownload” which is a Chrome extension and it works perfectly!

        Thanks anyway. 12 hours and counting. That Chrome extension doesn’t work, FYI for these files. Please do not do this to your loyal fans of VSTBuzz. Check out the software before you offer it for sale. Seriously, I wouldn’t wish this program on my enemy.

          Hi Shore, if JDownloader doesn’t work I’d suggest trying “uSelect iDownload” which is a free Chrome Extension. The files download very fast as they’re all hosted on the S3 network. We’ve thoroughly tested the software before offering it for sale – in particular the downloading procedure seemed fine to us when using any download manager.

          We’ve just re-tested the downloads once more using the uSelect iDownload free chrome extension and they’re downloading incredibly fast.

          If you have any other problems downloading, just drop us an email and we’ll reply to you right away! Thanks for your feedback and please let us know if we can do anything else for you!

      This is a great deal for the price… you can look into options such as upgrading your internet connection if you are choosing to buy these deals or look for a coffee shop with high speed data. Please don’t knock the download I’d love for a lot of huge sample libraries to be a part of this the data is also being served this is awesome.

    Well,

    After the tedious download, installation (uncompressing the files), the batch re-save (with some samples still missing), and going through the patches, I can say that this product is something you want to buy if you’re looking for something in particular that catches your ear in the demos or videos.

    As a whole, the product does not stand out for itself in my opinion.

    The programming is good, though sometimes I’ve experienced issues with the higher register of the strings (no legato, or sustain to marcato, something weird), but it changes from strings to brass, and that’s not cool. There’s also a bug or something that keeps some random keys pressed in Kontakt’s keyboard. That’s not cool.

    The woodwinds are “just there”. Don’t expect them to sound great. The flute patch sounds more like two flutes… There’s a pitch fluctuation there, I had to use the legacy one, which by the way doesn’t have legato.

    Percussion is okay, kind of limited but okay, but they haven’t bothered designing a GUI for nost of them, it’s just the standard Kontakt bar, that’s all.

    The harp has glissandos, and I consider this quite useful and not common on cheap libraries.

    Overall, it’s good for the price, but those who paid the full price… I don’t think they’re too happy with the results.

    2/5, I’ll probably change my mind if they put some more effort into this library.

      Yes, could you contact Kirk and figure out if he’s going to fix the flute patch? Or add TVEC4 woodwinds at all? That would be cool… Please keep us posted, VST Buzz.

          TVEC3, which is the only patch which is not “legacy” and it has a similar scripting than 4, sounds like two flutes. Just load it and check it yourself, please. Play a few notes and you’ll hear a strange detuning, even on sustained notes.

    Hi, I have FL Studio and really want to get into orchestral music. This seems like an unbelievable start for me. Great price and quality. However, I am unsure of whether I need other programs to run with it. I’m new to FL and I don’t understand what is meant by “you need to have purchased a retail version of Kontakt 5.3 or higher.” Can this be explained or linked? Thanks

      Hi Shane! The only program you need is “Kontakt 5” – there are two versions of Kontakt, 1 is free (Kontakt Player) and one costs money. You need the only that costs money which a lot of people have. You can read more on it here: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/samplers/kontakt-5/

      This program works within Kontakt 5. Kontakt 5 works within FL 🙂

    Great deal! It is always better to have then not. Two words about download and sounds of library – it is possible to download every instruments separately, not only all 80gb in one shot. And with account at kirkhunterstudios.com you can download any time. It is not so easy to achieve similar sounds like in demos. Once again thanks. Regards.

      I own all three. And also several of the Spitfire audio,. I think it is great. Has a very authentic sound.The solo and smaller patches sound incredible in my full mixes.I actually like them better than Spitfires solo strings.They sound similar to spitfire Artisan cello and violin which I use a lot.I personally do not like Kontakt Orchestral Library at all.
      Ever since I purchased EWSO ,Kurk Hunters,and Spitfire,I never could use them again.EWSO takes a lot of work and layering but sounds incredible. I would put KH in the same class as EWSO . Some of KH is close to as good as Spitfire and some is as good.
