Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors

“Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors” is an all-in-one symphonic library that makes it easier than ever to bring your orchestral ideas to life!

This library features 30,000+ detailed samples of strings, brass, winds, and choral ensembles, along with a unique library of chords & voicings that puts the full palette of symphonic tones at your fingertips. With “Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors”, there’s no faster way to create fully-voiced orchestral textures!

Interface & Engine

“Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors” includes an elegant and powerful script engine that supports up to four ensembles in a single patch. Each ensemble has its own unique set of controls: mic mix, 4-band EQ, panning, Kontakt output selection, and chord voicing.

Mics can even be loaded or unloaded for each instrument without affecting the others! Changing all ensembles at once is also possible with the Link control.

The custom orchestrator script is the star of the library, by pressing any key on the keyboard, each section will play a pre-voiced chord built on the key that was pressed. Impact Soundworks have created a huge number of modes as well, such as:

  • Low & High: Pre-orchestrated triads built on the root note
  • Fat: Super-dense doubled chords
  • Octaves & Power: Octave unisons and 4th/5th intervals
  • Aleatoric 1-3: Up to three random notes triggered per key press
  • Int2: Performs the third and fifth triad without the root note
  • Scale degrees: Plays the 2nd, 3rd, 4th.. etc built on the root note
  • Intervals: Performs two note intervals from 2nd to 7th

“Rhapsody: Orchestral Colors” includes extensive settings and performance controls to further customize the library.

Our convolution reverb sports a selection of custom, hand-picked impulse responses ranging from huge concert halls to small chamber spaces – an easy way to achieve drastically different tones with one click.

Other useful features include the Doubler, which doubles the size and width of every ensemble, Extra RR, which adds even more variations to every section (great for ostinato staccatos), and Staccato Tightness, allowing for the full range of short notes from loose and full to ultra-short and tight.

Note: Requires the Full Retail version of Kontakt 5.3 or higher (NOT compatible with the Free Kontakt Player)

Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion

This exquisite symphonic collection for KONTAKT features a comprehensive collection of 50 traditional & extended percussive instruments recorded through three mic positions. With a clean, focused character that is not clinically dry OR overly ‘epic’, Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion is highly flexible for everything from small ensemble scoring and intimate cues to dramatic & bombastic. No other percussion library is as extensive AND affordable!

Concept & Interface

Impact Soundworks’ goal with Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion was nothing less than creating the most versatile and affordable percussion library ever. With 50 instruments, 100+ articulations, and 21+ gigabytes of raw recordings, calling this collection ‘comprehensive’ is an understatement. Each instrument has been exhaustively sampled with up to 10x RR and 5x velocity layers, captured across three mic positions in a gorgeous orchestral hall.

Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion goes beyond the standard suite of drums (i.e. bass drum, snare, toms, cymbals) to include a wide variety of aux percussion (i.e. shaker, sleigh bells, castanets, chimes, metals, wood & temple blocks), hand drums (i.e. djembe, bongos, cajon, darbuka), and chromatic instruments (i.e. glockenspiel, xylophone, marimba, crotales, tubular bells).

Impact Soundworks’ philosophy when building instruments is to design with composers in mind. To that end, we’ve created a intuitive interface for the library that provides customization and control without being overly complex.

Script Features:

  • Volume, tuning, and envelope controls for each instrument
  • Internal preset system for saving your settings & mixes
  • Per-instrument 3-band “Solid-G” EQ
  • Enable / disable instruments & mics to preserve RAM
  • Multiple outputs – send instruments to different Kontakt outs
  • Mic mixing – volume, pan, width, offset (via CC)
  • Convolution reverb send with wet & size controls

Besides its scope and affordability, what else sets this library apart? Most orchestral percussion libraries strive for the ideal of “epic” through big halls and lots of reverb: a huge sound for a huge price. Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion was instead recorded & designed to function in any musical context, from small, emotional pieces, to tense underscores, and even bombastic, loud, and – yes – epic tracks.

Furia Staccato Strings

An orchestral library designed for powerful ensemble string staccatos, Furia delivers instant gratification for film, TV, game & trailer scoring. Perfect for epic action string stabs and ostinatos, dramatic builds, and tense underscore rhythms!

String ensemble staccatos are a composer’s best friend. Whether you need to accentuate dramatic rhythms in an action cue, create tension with a repeating ostinato line, build an epic swashbuckling main melody, or weave ominous arpeggiating textures, staccato strings are de facto standard.

Furia is a library tailor-made to deliver that very sound, and ONLY that sound. It is simple and streamlined, with no extraneous features or samples. As soon as you load it up and begin playing, you’ll see the appeal of this elegant design. With no complex UI or exhaustive patch lists, you instead have an instant, highly-versatile staccato sound out-of-the-box.

  • Ensemble Multiplier – FSS was recorded with a 22-piece string ensemble. With this control, you can multiply the size of the ensemble up to 8x for an even more epic sound!
  • Timing Controls – The Ensemble Timing knob controls the amount of random timing variation in the ensemble multiplier, while Sample Offset adjusts the sample playback to be more aggressive (at the cost of some pre-bow noise).
  • Mic Mixer – Here you can load or unload either of the two included mic positions, plus change or automate their volume & stereo width.
  • Envelope Shaping – Dial down the decay and sustain for a very tight and aggressive staccato sound, or turn them up with release to let each note ring out.

Use Furia on its own with either (or both) of two included mic positions and a handy FX rack, or layer it with other orchestral sounds like Bravura Scoring Brass for even more ‘oomph’. Either way, we know you’ll find it a fantastic and very practical tool for your template!

Bravura Scoring Brass – Chords & FX

bravura – noun / brə – vyoor – ə:
1. a musical passage requiring exceptional agility and technical skill in execution
2. a florid, brilliant style
3. a show of daring

When the Impacts Soundworks’ team ran across this rarely-used (and somewhat difficult to pronounce!) term they knew immediately it was the ideal title for their bold, new orchestral brass library.

“Bravura Scoring Brass – Chords & FX” is a version of the full instrument featuring a selection of “instant gratification” patches from Bravura Scoring Brass Complete. It is NOT the full version of Bravura Scoring Brass, but it does contain some of the most useful patches for composers!

Content & Features:

  • Ensemble and Solo “Chord Maker” patches – Play single notes to create fully-voiced chords, with control over chord voicing, type and instrument spread
  • Ensemble and Solo “Orchestrator” patches – As you play or sequence chords, these patches will intelligently assign each note to a different instrument, creating realistic voicings!
  • Articulations – Sustain, staccato, tenuto, marcato
  • All aleatoric FX patches – short figures, phrases, motifs, swells, and hits that are particularly ideal for scoring purposes.

Vocalisa Slavic Womens’s Choir

Discover the powerful sound of Slavic (Bulgarian-style) singing as performed by an all-female chorus: sopranos, mezzos, altos, soloist, and full choir.

Vocalisa features many important syllables and consonants idiomatic to this style, plus useful pitch articulations (mordents, turns) and FX (breaths, claps, clusters.)

Interface & Engine

The interface of Vocalisa allows for full control over the performance and sound of each section. Articulations and syllables can be triggered via keyswitch, or sequenced using the “Grid Mode” pictured below.

Each syllable and ornament can be tweaked individually – volume, offset, and brightness. For example, using offset on the “mah” syllable can create a simple “ah” vowel, or “shteh” can be shortened to “teh”. The brightness knob is also a highly useful tool for shaping the timbre and tonality of the performance.

Content & Features

  • Detailed recordings for a versatile sound with air
  • Traditional Slavic choral singing
  • Eh, mah, yah, ree, shteh, svah, and oh
  • Mordents, turns, clusters, FX & breaths
  • Section-building with sopranos, mezzos, altos
  • Soloist & full choir patches
  • Two flexible modes: keyswitch & grid (sequence)
  • Beautiful UI with performance tweaking & mix

Other global effects are available as well!  Included are such handy tools such as a compressor, stereo width control (for widening or collapsing to mono), release noise mixer, EQ, and convolution reverb!

Note: Requires the Full Retail version of Kontakt 4 or higher (NOT compatible with the Free Kontakt Player)

  • ""Furia Staccato Strings - a massive amount of power in such a small and affordable package. It's amazing! [...] It's basically straight in your face, so there's no mucking around. You can't get lost... It presents itself as, 'Here I am. Take me. This is what I am.' ... you can start playing as soon as you're finished downloading and get brilliant ideas. Very unique especially for a library with just one articulation. It's very, very diverse in its range of uses, its playability, and I highly, highly recommend it, [...] It doesn't matter if you have those [other] libraries. Still pick [it] up because it's very useful."

  • "Bravura Brass - Boasting a highly effective true legato mode for all instruments, the library is technically excellent, with deep programming facilities lurking beneath the bonnet. The instruments (which play a decent range of common articulations and aleatoric effects) sound very nice indeed: ‘opulent’ is the word that springs to mind."

  • "Vocalisa Slavic Women's Choir - After playing for just a little, it starts to sound good. Real good. This choir has energy, and lots of it... When playing the Full Choir Master patch you can almost see them standing outside and singing into the blowing winds. It sounds strong, brave and beautiful. I have nothing [else] that conjures the same feeling... [it] lends a whole new tone or vibe to what I already have and you can go with a full choir or a more intimate one. Vocalisa has a filled a spot in my palette of sounds that I didn’t know was missing. It has a safe place in my template from now on."
