IK Multimedia release Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE

Orchestral virtual instrument for musicians on a budget available

IK Multimedia have announced the release of Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE ‘Classik Edition’ for Mac/PC, a lower priced, fully featured edition of the recently released Miroslav Philharmonik 2. 

It features over 730 instruments, multiple articulations, a 10GB library, over 30 professional quality effects, 3 powerful playback engines, a synthesizer section, a built-in mixer and a whole lot more all for an introductory price of $/€99.99.

Instruments in Miroslav Philharmonik 2 include: ensemble and solo strings, brass and woodwinds, full orchestra, piano, choirs, mallet instruments, orchestral percussion and more. The samples are all 16-bit, 44.1kHz.

Just like in the full version, each of its instruments capture the uniquely human elements that have made Miroslav Philharmonik 2 a go-to for composers, soundtrack scorers and producers.

These instruments let you easily access the most used articulations for the chosen instrument type on the fly. Performers can switch from sustained to detache, staccato, legato, pizzicato or any number of other musical articulations without leaving the main instrument, a brilliantly simple way to compose with the perfect instrument character and tone without interrupting the creative flow. This means that when a player selects an instrument to play, they won't just hear a note, say IK - they hear all the passion, pain, joy, suffering and excitement of the musician playing that note.

Effects and processing
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE comes with the complete collection of over 30 professional-grade studio plug-in effects from Miroslav Philharmonik 2 including equalisers, dynamic processors, filters, modulation effects, reverbs, delays and more. It also includes 4 of the best analogue-modeled mastering effects from IK's acclaimed T-RackS mixing and mastering suite.

Beyond these effects, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE also comes with an updated ConvoRoom convolution reverb unit that displays the physical space that is being acoustically represented.

Advanced control
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE uses the same Play, Mix and Edit pages as Miroslav Philharmonik 2 and SampleTank 3. These pages give musicians an extreme amount of intuitive creative control over Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE'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 for sound manipulation. 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

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

Pricing and availability
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE is available now as a direct digital download from the IK online store or select music retailers worldwide, and as an add-in instrument collection in the SampleTank 3 Custom shop for an introductory price of only $/€99.99 until June 1, 2016.
