WELCOME TO PALETTE!
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 us to make and we 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 we 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 color to your compositions we’ve put together additional tool sets we call “Brush Packs.” These brush packs do not require that you own Symphonic Sketchpad, but focus on deeper and more specific scoring elements like orchestral FX, percussion loops or true-legato melodic ensembles. This modular approach allows you the opportunity to 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.
“Palette – Orchestral FX” is an aleatoric FX virtual instrument for media composers and songwriters. We were fortunate to work with three outstanding composers from around the globe (George Strezov, Jongnic Bontemps and Tristan Noon) who collaborated to orchestrate a slew of useful FX for strings, brass, woodwinds and choir in 6 categories – Short, Long, Sting, Texture, Rise and Fall. Many were recorded by all 4 sections, allowing for easy layering. In total there are over 2,400 unique performances that you can use to provide instant drama, emotion, character and life to your music. Load up one of the 4 section patches and keyswitch through the categories to perform individual samples from your keyboard. Or get creative with the powerful FX Builder patch, which allows you to browse, select and layer up to 4 FX with controls to adjust their volume, pitch and timing.
As with the entire Palette line, our players were recorded in standard orchestral seating position with 3 microphone perspectives – close, decca tree and hall. The room is spacious but fairly dry, with only a 1.2 second tail, which allows for easy blending with other libraries using your favorite reverbs, so you’re not limited to the sound of one particular hall. Since “Palette – Orchestral FX” 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.
