Essential and affordable all in one cinematic package for media composers

Cinematic specialists ProjectSAM have released Orchestral Essentials: The essence of film scoring – a Kontakt player based instrument designed to give computer musicians the essential tools to launch their film composer career at an unbeatable price

ProjectSAM has carefully selected the essentials from each of their products, including the highly praised Symphobia series, True Strike series and Orchestral Brass Classic, and bundled them into one effective, incredibly versatile package. What’s more, new instruments not found in any other ProjectSAM products are also included.


  • Epic full orchestra articulations
  • Symphonic string, brass and wind ensemble articulations
  • Legato ensembles with real note transitions
  • Classical, melodic & world percussion including timpani & Japanese drums
  • Cinematic effects, clusters and percussive hits
  • Previously unreleased Piano Mystique and Harpsichord
  • Ground-shaking Dystopia sound design
  • Inspiring and thematic Multis
  • Native Kontrol Standard support


Covering full orchestra, string, brass and woodwind ensembles, classical and world percussion, Orchestral Essentials gives you the right ammo to start scoring for film, games or pop with the acclaimed “cinematic SAM sound”.

For each of the orchestral sections, an essential list of articulations is available, as well as one expressive legato instrument and an inspiring set of clusters, textures and effects.

Apart from these orchestral elements, you will also find a concert harp, church organ, ProjectSAM’s renowned Dystopia sound design, and, exclusive to Orchestral Essentials, an enchanting grand piano and harpsichord.

Orchestral Essentials follows ProjectSAM’s ensemble recording philosophy. Strings, brass and woodwinds were sampled as sections, as nothing beats the authentic blend of orchestral instruments in a concert hall. ProjectSAM captures this magic in various orchestrations; for example, imagine the noble sound of horns and trombones performing together naturally.

Back in 2002, ProjectSAM set the benchmark for ambient recording and affordability with the release of SAM HORNS. Now, ProjectSAM does it again with Orchestral Essentials.
