IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality Acquire Miroslav Orchestral Library
By Guest |
IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality announced the acquisition of the Miroslav Orchestral Sample Library. The acquired collection includes the complete Miroslav Orchestral and Choir sample collection, including both released Miroslav libraries as well as a vast unreleased high resolution archive of orchestral and vocal samples.
Miroslav Vitous co-founded Weather Report with Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter and went on to record five albums with the pioneering fusion act prior to launching his solo career with fruitful results. It's yielded 12 diverse and acclaimed discs to date, ranging from jazz-funk to solo bass to intimate acoustic duos and trios.
Miroslav's orchestral samples are considered some of the most beautiful and playable amongst orchestral sound collections because of his dedication to meticulously collect the most emotional and moving sounds of the orchestra in a high-end sample collection. The acquired sample collection includes complete orchestral and choir samples recorded in world-famous environments, such as the Dvorak Theatre in Prague.
Starting January 2005, the current Miroslav Vitous orchestra libraries will be exclusively available, from IK Multimedia (for Europe, Asia and Oceania) and Sonic Reality (North and South America) through a network of appointed distributors and dealers.
In 2005 IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality are launching Miroslav Philharmonik. Powered by the SampleTank 2 engine, the new Miroslav Philharmonik is an integrated orchestral workstation that combines the Miroslav Orchestral and Choir sample collections with a dedicated plug-in instrument specially tailored toward classical sounds and arrangements.
