Symphonic effects and legato ensembles

Discover the fully updated 1.6 Editions of the orchestral library series that forever changed the film scoring game: The Symphobia Series.

Symphobia 2 is the acclaimed sequel to the original Symphobia. All-new orchestral effects, massive amounts of fresh and inspiring symphonic effects, exclusive legato ensembles with real legato transitions, Dystopia III and a brand-new interface. Symphobia 2 is the new no-brainer addition to the Symphobia series for any film, game or TV composer.
Symphobia 2 does not include Symphobia 1. Both libraries are unique products with unique content. 




  • Real tutti recordings of symphonic ensembles
  • Industry-first orchestrated legato ensembles with real legato transitions
  • Extensive, multi-articulation patches
  • New and inspiring symphonic effects
  • 27 GB library in Kontakt´s compressed sample format (54 GB uncompressed)
  • 44.1 24 bit audio format
  • Genuine concert hall recordings
  • Real-time mixing of close & stage mics
  • Kontakt Player 5 license included
  • Native Kontrol Standard support


The 1.6 Edition of Symphobia 2, released around Christmas 2017, offers a hair-raising set of brand-new string section effects, dubbed the Ghostly Strings, as well as over 16 new features, including improved control over articulation switching, articulation locking and round robin. As always, this 3 GB* update is 100% free for all existing Symphobia 2 users! The full list of what´s new includes:

  • New content: Ghostly String Effects
  • New Multis
  • Improved playability for all orchestral legato instruments (pointier playing)
  • Articulation selection slider
  • Mic output routing
  • Speed Control more widely available

  • On-screen info for all controls in Kontakt
  • Refreshed UI design

If you own the original Symphobia, Symphobia 2 will greatly expand your possibilities. To name a few, the Symphobia 2 string section adds minor and major DXF trills, different lengths of crescendo-decrescendo, new crescendos and new spiccatos. The full orchestra section has powerful new sustain and staccato articulations, and a beautiful Wide Octaves articulation with modwheel control. The separate horn section in the original Symphobia has been expanded with a blockbuster 8-player horn ensemble.

If you liked the effects in the original Symphobia, you are going to love the ones in Symphobia 2! Having covered the basis, we could explore the world of orchestral effects further and look for interesting new sounds and more specific techniques. There are now effects banks entirely dedicated to ponticello, flageolet or other playing techniques. You will also find beautiful looped textures that can be triggered in different keys. These phrases will instantly give your production a realism boost, but leave enough room to add your own personal touches.

An industry-first: real legato transitions for orchestrated sets of instruments. Various differently arranged ensembles were captured performing legato intervals, playing in unison or octaves, and were meticulously edited and scripted. A great example is the noble sounding Horns Violins Violas set, which offers real legato performance of French horns, violins and violas playing in unison. No layering was used whatsoever. The legatos, transitions and orchestrations you hear are all real.

Each of the sets has been recorded in a specific range and dynamic, dictated by the orchestration and the musical context of the orchestration. Apart from the Legato Ensembles we also included a number of legato solo instruments. [Hear a demo now]

Our popular Dystopia section is back and is better than ever! Explore the dark side of SAM with processed hits, spheres, scapes and risers, based on the recordings of Symphobia 2 and some of our other libraries. Also be sure to check out the Symphobian Drums.

Symphobia 2 is powered by Kontakt and comes with a brand-new interface. In the centre are the instrument and articulation displays. The left half of the interface contains all the switchable options such as Master EQ, release trails and microphone mode. The right half of the interface has all the controllable options such as instant ADSR, reverb and DSP effects.

Like the original Symphobia, Symphobia 2 was recorded in a beautiful concert hall environment and has been edited and programmed in two microphone sets: close and stage. Each program now contains both microphone sets and has a convenient switch button to choose which mic set you wish to use. Both mic sets have been carefully mixed to instantly fall into place in your mix. When switching mics, the samples for the unused mic will be purged from RAM.

The Legato Ensembles opened up exciting new possibilities for creating Multis. We created Multis that allow you to play two, even three legato instruments simultaneously as well as various combinations of polyphonic articulations and a legato instrument.
With names such as "Make It So" and "When All Hope Is Lost" it´s easy to find the Multi that best matches your project or scene.

Press Reviews

CM Performance"A magnificent sounding collection that complements the usual orchestral libraries with its full-on approach." - Computer Music (Rating 9/10)

"...for sheer orchestral realism, the ensembles and effects are unsurpassed." - Music Tech (Rating 9/10)

FM Platinum Award"Symphobia 2 won´t let you down. Its recordings are rich and enhanced greatly by new, natural sounding articulations but its darker textures, in particular, make sound design and composition an absolute joy and very few libraries fuel inspiration right out of the box like this one. [...] A score writer´s dream." - Future Music (Rating 9/10)

5/5 SoS"... if absolutely nothing in it stirs you, it might be advisable to consider an alternative career in accountancy." Sound on Sound (Rating 5/5)
