Orchestrator is ProjectSAM's second release in their exciting new Symphobia Colours series and, with real legato transitions for chords, it delivers extremely realistic, musical and evocative results.

ProjectSAM recorded major and minor chords with all possible transitions between them. For example, C major and F minor were recorded separately, as well as C major changing into F minor and vice versa. The result is extremely realistic, musical and evocative.

The two ensembles recorded for Orchestrator are strings performing with choir and brass performing with woodwinds. A full set of legato chords is available for these two arrangements. Major and minor chords are mapped to two regions on the keyboard, allowing you to trigger and connect them using single keys.

In addition to the legato chords, a number of other ensembles are available, including legato double basses performing with choir basses, violin with soprano sustains, various staccato chords as well as a bonus set of alternative chord orchestrations.

Each instrument type in Orchestrator has a consistent region on the keyboard. Chords are always mapped to the same octaves, so are low basses and high sustains. This makes it extremely easy to layer different sounds together. The included Multis give you a number of such combinations.

Orchestrator is an incredibly inspirational tool that will find its way into your orchestral template from day one.

      "There's little doubt that Orchestrator can deliver excellent results, with the performance legatos really adding to the realism. There are also some great serendipitous results to be had when playing Orchestrator's chords in a free-form way." - Music Tech (Rating 8/10)

      "[Orchestrator]'s big selling point is its legato chord transitions, making the handover point between 'slurred' chords sound remarkably smooth and natural."Computer Music (Rating 8/10) - Read the review in full at musicradar.com
