Intimately detailed recordings from a legendary Berlin studio

Iconica is the only orchestral library recorded entirely at the legendary Funkhaus Berlin, renowned for its recordings of movie soundtracks, TV series, and major classical works. Produced in collaboration with specialist company Orchestral Tools, the samples were recorded by 76 musicians — including 50 players just for the strings — in Studio 2, a 400m2 room with a 10,5m floor to ceiling height and a pleasing reverb time of around 1.5 seconds. Recorded over the course of a month, the acoustic separation of Funkhaus Berlin’s studios guarantees crystal-clear samples which capture the sounds of the orchestra in perfect, intimate detail.

Created with Orchestral Tools

Iconica has been created in collaboration with leading orchestral samples company Orchestral Tools. Well respected for its high-end orchestral libraries, like the Berlin Series and Metropolis Ark, Orchestral Tools worked with Steinberg to record the samples in one of its longest ever sessions. Both companies are extremely proud of Iconica which delivers a complete solution for orchestral productions and sound design.
