Made in conjunction with master musician, jazz legend and sampling luminary Miroslav Vitous, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 is an emotionally charged orchestral workstation that takes the groundbreaking virtual instrument used on countless classical productions, film scores and pop hits to new levels of expressiveness and realism. It provides over 2,700 instruments with over 55 GB of samples with beautiful new sounds recorded in stunning high-resolution at the prestigious Czech National Symphony Orchestra Studios in Prague.

Miroslav Philharmonik 2

Real symphonic emotion
Miroslav Philharmonik 2’s expressive collection of sounds includes soaring strings, animated woodwinds and majestic brass as well as precision tuned percussion including a majestic 9′ concert grand piano, an elegant harpsichord, stately orchestral chimes, a kinetic concert marimba, a warm and rich vibraphone and a lively glockenspiel.

The mallet instruments are all provided with perfectly placed mono and Blumlein stereo miking allowing users to place the instruments into the perfect spatial context. These instruments have been sampled to convey all the emotion and humanity of the musician behind each note. All of the samples from the original Miroslav Philharmonik are included, optimized with articulation switching and the latest effects.

Instruments in the collection blend perfectly as only the best modern symphony orchestras do.  The instruments are expertly recorded free of excessive ambience so musicians can place them into the exact recording environment using Miroslav Philharmonik 2’s cutting edge ConvoRoom and classic algorithmic reverb effects.

Effortlessly expressive articulation
The string, brass and woodwind instruments all include multiple articulations performed by master musicians, and they can be played using articulation switching or as separate instruments. This lets musicians instantly switch between flowing legatos, animated pizzicatos, aggressive spiccatos, elegant staccatos, triumphant fortissimos and more. The mallet instruments have been recorded using different types of mallets giving players more tonal flexibility. The piano’s soundboard has been modeled to facilitate the perfect interaction between the player and the amazingly complex mechanism of the acoustic piano providing stunning acoustic realism.

Powerful processing
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 sounds like the best audiophile symphonic recordings because of its more than 30 professional-grade studio plug-in effects from IK Multimedia’s acclaimed SampleTank® 3. These fully editable effects encompass the full range of the sonic spectrum and include equalizers, dynamic processors, filters, modulation effects, reverbs, delays and more. It also includes 4 of the best analog-modeled mastering effects from IK’s acclaimed T-RackS mixing and mastering suite and an updated convolution reverb effect.

Play. Mix. Edit: Advanced control
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 uses the same Play, Mix and Edit pages as SampleTank 3. These pages give musicians an extreme amount of creative flexibility and control. It includes an easy-to-use instrument browser, a 16-part DAW-style mixer and a powerful synthesizer section with 3 sample playback engines and 10 high-quality filters.

Seamless integration
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 can be used on its own as a standalone or plug-in instrument or as an additional instrument collection inside of the SampleTank 3 sound and groove workstation.

Pricing and availability
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 is available now as a direct digital download from the IK store and from select music retailers worldwide, or as a boxed version with a USB flash drive.

IK Multimedia unveils Miroslav Philharmonik 2: the new orchestra with legendary soul

November 9, 2015 Comments off

November 9, 2015 IK Multimedia is proud to announce Miroslav Philharmonik™ 2, the next-generation of the most emotionally expressive orchestral collection for Mac/PC. Made in conjunction with master musician Miroslav Vitous, it comes with over 1,000 new sounds that include soaring strings, animated woodwinds and majestic brass in both solo and ensemble forms. In total, it offers a remarkable 55GB+ content library with over 2,500 instruments sampled in stunning high-resolution audio with multiple articulations plus over 30 professional quality effects, 3 powerful playback engines, a synthesizer section, a built-in mixer and a whole lot more.

Miroslav Philharmonik 2

Miroslav Philharmonik 2 is a sweeping vision from a master artist embodied in a new virtual instrument that puts the full emotional range and humanity of a symphony orchestra at musicians’ and composers’ fingertips.

Simply beautiful sound
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 builds on the core library of its predecessor with over 1,000 new instruments recorded in the ensemble strings, solo strings, ensemble brass, solo brass, ensemble woodwinds and solo woodwind categories. Its sounds have been meticulously voiced and edited with the same sampling techniques that made the original Miroslav Philharmonik one of the most popular orchestral workstations of all time.

Each of these new sounds has been recorded at the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, a space that’s been used by such legendary figures as Andrea Bocelli, Ennio Morricone, Lalo Schifrin and, of course, Miroslav Vitous himself.

Ecstasy. Passion. Joy.
Miroslav Philharmonik 2’s instruments and sounds are able to convey the emotion and humanity of the musician behind each note. This makes it a perfect choice for when a more delicate or expressive touch is required: Like when scoring tragic love stories, recording romantic R&B ballads or adding symphonic grandeur to gothic metal anthems.

Every new sound includes its own articulations that can be accessed either via a convenient key switching system that lets musicians instantly play flowing legatos, animated pizzicatos, aggressive spiccatos, elegant staccatos, triumphant fortissimos and more. All articulations are also available as individual instruments.

In addition to the new sounds, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 also comes with an updated library of instruments from the original Miroslav Philharmonik. These classic instruments have been enhanced to take advantage of the new SampleTank 3 technology powering Miroslav Philharmonik 2. This provides more possibilities for sonic sculpting than ever before: All instruments now come with 8 macro controls (as opposed to 4) that control features like a 3-band EQ, a filter cutoff and envelope parameters like attack and release that are perfect for on-the-fly adjustments.

Powerful processing
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 includes over 30 professional-grade studio plug-in effects from IK Multimedia’s acclaimed SampleTank 3 sound and groove workstation. These effects encompass the full range of the sonic spectrum and include equalizers, dynamic processors, filters, modulation effects, reverbs, delays and more. It also includes 4 of the best analog-modeled mastering effects from IK’s acclaimed T-RackS mixing and mastering suite for complete, in-the-box mixing.

Beyond these effects, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 also comes with an updated ConvoRoom convolution reverb unit that now sports a new virtual room that displays the physical space acoustically represented.

With such a collection of effects, musicians can create professional, broadcast-quality productions straight inside Miroslav Philharmonik 2 itself with no additional processing required!

Play. Mix. Edit: Advanced control
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 uses the same Play, Mix and Edit pages as SampleTank 3. These pages give musicians an extreme amount of intuitive creative control over Miroslav Philharmonik 2’s orchestral sounds. It comes with an easy-to-use instrument browser, a 16-part DAW-style mixer with per-channel effect slots and global send/return and a powerful synthesizer section with 3 sample playback engines and 10 high-quality filters. With the synthesizer, musicians can quickly and easily transform a simple trumpet into a massive synth lead or a mighty brass ensemble into a dreamy pad – Miroslav Philharmonik 2 literally lets composers explore the furthest reaches of their creative minds.

Mobile composition
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 has been designed to be experienced with IK’s growing range of companion hardware controllers. Keyboard players will love the effortlessness with which its instruments pair with IK’s iRig Keys, iRig Keys PRO, iRig Keys 25, iRig Keys 37 and iRig Keys 37 PRO keyboard controllers. Now musicians can have a responsive and thoroughly tactile piano experience – complete with world-class grand piano sound – anytime and everywhere.
