18 January 2007 — IK Multimedia is proud to announce Miroslav Philharmonik Classik Edition, an introductory version to the highly popular virtual instrument orchestral plug-in, Miroslav Philharmonik. Based on the classic Miroslav Orchestra sample collection masterpiece, Miroslav Philharmonik CE is a complete orchestral instrument that any musician can afford.
Miroslav Philharmonik CE is a full-featured orchestral instrument covering solo instruments and ensembles with 250 sounds spanning the entire orchestra in 1.5GB of samples. Based on the original Miroslav Vitous Symphonic Orchestra sample collection, Miroslav Philharmonik CE has a musicality and playability rarely found in other orchestral sample collections. There has never been a body of work that has captured the same depth and beauty of the feeling and emotions of real players quite like the collection assembled by Miroslav Vitous. Sampled in the Dvorák Symphony Hall (one of the best sounding halls in the world) with true spatial positioning, the sounds fit together when layering or multitracking. Miroslav Philharmonik CE brings to you a complete and beautiful sounding orchestral product at a price that any musician can afford, only a fraction of the cost of the original Miroslav Vitous Symphonic Orchesta sample collection, but with the same acoustic quality and realism that is unmatched in the sample world.
