Inspirational orchestral excellence
Exactly like a real orchestra
A key to great orchestral music is getting the positional balance between each section of instruments just right. With correct orchestral layout settings included in every preset, Iconica Ensembles makes getting this balance correct fast and easy. All Iconica Ensembles presets were recorded with each section of the orchestra in its correct place. This means that, when you are playing or mixing a piece, it sounds exactly like a real orchestra. This means that, when you are playing or mixing a piece, it sounds exactly like a real orchestra sitting in front of you.
The Mixer Page allows you to assign an output to each of the microphone positions used to record every preset, as well as controlling the volume and load status (which provides different room perspectives). This further helps you to include very finely nuanced sound in every composition.
Expressive and efficient
The unique Note Expression and Expression Maps of Iconica Ensembles’ VST 3 format means you can create unique textures and aleatoric effects. Further individuality is possible thanks to the different articulations which are available via the innovative Cell Rack, a fast and intuitive way to experiment and compose impressive music on the fly.
Always in tune with your inspiration
The Tuning Scale function allows you to tune Iconica Ensembles to a number of different scales. The default setting is Equal Temperament, but this can be easily set to a range of alternatives — even to change while playing a note — either for artistic reasons or to conform to a different tuning standard. For example, this could be when writing/accompanying period pieces.
