“The modern art of the orchestra
Iconica was recorded in legendary Funkhaus Berlin with our partner Orchestral Tools and brings exceptional modern orchestral expression to professional composers. The overall bundle Iconica Opus combines the two libraries Iconica Sections and Players and Iconica Ensembles in an impressive orchestral solution with up to 190 GB compressed audio and more than 500 articulations.
Iconica Sections & Players brings exceptional modern orchestral expression to every composer. Featuring over 150 GB of strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, and harp samples, with a huge variety of expressions and articulations, the advanced, user-friendly interface makes it very intuitive to use, speeding and inspiring new composition. Recorded in the legendary Funkhaus Berlin with partner Orchestral Tools, it is the ideal composition tool for movie scores, classical music, pop, rock, jazz or hip hop.
Orchestral strings do much to convey emotion and drama. The violins (I and II), violas, celli and basses in Iconica Sections & Players make sure your audience really feels those passions!
From piccolo flute through to contra bassoon, woodwinds are the most diverse group of instruments in the orchestra. Perfect for many genres of music, Iconica Sections & Players includes flutes, oboes, clarinets, and bassoons, along with additional instruments.
Whether it is the majesty of a trumpet fanfare, a complex jazz solo or the many musical sides of a brass band, Iconica’s trumpets, trombones, French horns, tuba, and euphonium make playing brass parts a pleasure.
Intimately detailed recordings from a legendary Berlin studio
Iconica Sections & Players 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.
Vast percussion section
Broadly speaking, there are four major areas of orchestral percussion: Timpani, Melodic Percussion, Drums, and Metals. All are represented in a vast percussion section, with many different instruments to choose from.
The ethereal sound of the concert harp adds a touch of sonic beauty to any composition. It includes a variety of major, minor and pentatonic glissandi, pres de la table and harmonics.
Iconica’s high-end sound and VST 3 standard keep compositions at the cutting edge. VST 3’s unique Note Expression and Expression Maps open up brand-new areas of potential, allowing users to create unique textures and aleatoric effects which are almost impossible with other libraries.”
