MELODICS – COMBOS & SOLOISTS
The concept for Red Room Audio's first Palette Brush pack “Melodics” is simple. They studied the scores of several of their favourite classical and modern film music composers (which was a most enjoyable exercise!) and selected 17 of the most evocative melody-carrying combinations and instruments.
Red Room Audio recorded a soaring violin section playing octaves, regal trumpets with horns, playful flutes & piccolo, creepy bass clarinet & contrabassoon octaves, a gigantic and downright frightening low strings & low brass ensemble and many others. They felt it was also important to include soloists since they are so often used to deliver a melody, so they recorded 6 of those as well. 16 of the 17 instruments in the library have true legato (the exception being our Trombones & Tuba).
You are not, however, limited to using “Melodics” for melodies. The instruments feature up to 9 common articulations (most include 4 different kinds of short notes!) and can therefore also be used for traditional orchestral writing to add unique colours to your compositions.
The soloists were recorded in standard orchestral seating position with 3 microphone perspectives – close, decca tree and hall. For the combos Red Room Audio added a second close mic (4 total mics) so you have some control of each individual instrument.
The room is spacious but fairly dry, with only a 1.2 second tail, which allows for easy blending with other libraries using your favourite reverbs, so you’re not limited to the sound of one particular hall. Since “Palette – Melodics” was recorded by the same amazing musicians and production team with the same equipment and in the same hall, it was designed to blend perfectly with all the other Palette libraries.
Palette’s Kontakt instruments feature a clean and simple, 1-page GUI with all the controls you need to get the most out of the library, including a customizable articulation controls system, mic mixer and an 8-slot FX rack - for full details of the FX rack and what's included, please take a look at the PDF Manual from page 9. There’s even a button to narrow the entire GUI for ease of use on smaller screens like your laptop.

WELCOME TO PALETTE!
What's Palette all about?
Palette is a series of thematic professional orchestral and cinematic Kontakt virtual instruments for songwriters and media composers. It was recorded in a dedicated hall with world-renowned performers by a passionate and experienced team of sample makers. It was a dream come true for Red Room Audio to make and they hope this expansive set of scoring tools inspires you to write some great music.
There's an awful lot of content here, so to make things more accessible Red Room Audio divided it into multiple products. The first is “Palette – Symphonic Sketchpad,” which contains the building blocks to quickly and easily bring your cinematic ideas to life. Then, to add detail and colour to your compositions they’ve put together additional tool sets they call “Brush Packs.” Brush packs focus on deeper and more specific scoring elements like orchestral FX, percussion loops or true-legato melodic ensembles. Pick up the tools you want and not the ones you don’t. Since all Palette instruments were recorded in the same hall by the same production team and the same musicians, they complement each other perfectly.
