ProjectSAM Colours Adaptive Runs is the smartest and most intuitive orchestral runs library yet. Tapping from a vast audio pool, with runs ranging from a 4th interval to 4 octaves, ADAPTIVE RUNS perfectly and effortlessly syncs to your track, allowing you to keep focusing on your composition.

ProjectSAMs Adaptive Sync engine effortlessly syncs the orchestral runs to the next downbeat or any custom number of beats or seconds. The engine automatically picks the best matching recording, then tweaks it further so that it hits the mark exactly. Turning off synchronization automatically reloads the samples in disk streaming mode, a useful feature in low-RAM situations.

The Range toggle allows you to quickly switch to a run with either a narrower or wider orchestrated range, all while maintaining the other sync settings.

ADAPTIVE RUNS will become your new go-to runs library from the moment you start using it.


ADAPTIVE RUNS is part of ProjectSAMs Colours series. With ADAPTIVE RUNS, we have given the library series a fresh, new look, offering a clean layout with improved control over the features that you need most.


ADAPTIVE RUNS was recorded in the same, lush concert hall environment as many of their other libraries, including the Symphobia and Orchestral Essentials series. Four individual stereo mic sets are available, as well as a fifth, cinematic sounding, pre-mixed mic set.

The orchestral runs were recorded for the following six sections, performed in unison:

  • Violins I & II performing together
  • Violas & Cellos performing together
  • 2 Flutes + 1 Piccolo performing together
  • Solo Piccolo
  • 3 Oboes, 3 Clarinets & 3 Bassoons performing together
  • 3 Trumpets performing together

ADAPTIVE RUNS offers these sections as individual presets, but also packs a number of different combos. This way, you have access to massive 4-octave runs, covering the full string section, as well as common orchestrations such as the violins and flutes playing together.



Keep your template light by only loading the elements that you need. Load or unload sections, mics, scales and run directions on the fly.

With both up and down directions loaded, the useful Bounce feature is available. With Bounce enabled, holding down the sustain pedal will automatically bounce-loop the orchestral run up and down, in sync with your music.

By clicking the cogwheel icon, you get access to more advanced settings, such as the controller assignment for the run scales & directions (keyswitch, velocity or CC).


ADAPTIVE RUNS not only offers useful on-screen information for any button or control that you touch, but also features extensive help screens for each of the five sections of the user interface.
