UltimateOrchestral Composers Toolkit consists of six separate folders, allwith varying content (see Figure 1: Contents of Toolkit below). Foldersare separated by genre or purpose. Navigate to each folder for samplespertaining to that genre.

In addition, I have included a demofile, which showcases the sounds included in this library. The demo wasmade under 5 minutes, so it surely showcases what can be done with thelibrary.

Folder 1: Electronic

Libraries Included:
? DeadMau5 house sample pack
? Pure Trance Kick Drums (Zenheizer)

Usingthese tools, you should be able to achieve a good electronic? feelwithout having to resort to popular plugins such as SpectrasonicsStylus RMX. Try sequencing these samples using a step-sequencer like FLStudio or Hydrogen. Use the kick drums to sustain a beat by adding akick per beat.

Folder 2: Full Orchestral FX
This folderconstitutes the heart of the toolkit. You will likely find yourselfusing these samples the most often. Inside the folder, you will findseveral folders, titled by instrument. Corresponding libraries aredescribed in the documentation.

To achievethe best results with this library, I recommend layering severaldifferent FX and then panning left and right to achieve a very real?effect. Note: for the Boom library, this has already been done, so Irecommend only layering the other samples.

Folder 3: Instruments
Usethis folder if you wish to load samples in Kontakt (not recommended).When loading, you will be prompted with a dialogue saying you need tolocate the samples. Point Kontakt to the location where youve placedyour samples.

Folder 4: Percussion
In this folder, youwill find samples useful particularly for polishing your strong,rhythmic percussion lines. In Ultimate Orchestral Toolkit, you wereprovided with all the tools to create excellent percussive patterns. Inthis toolkit, you can now polish these lines by adding crescendos,decrescendos, glissandos, and more plus plenty of crash cymbals.

Recommended Application
Irecommend using the samples in this folder to add rises and crescendosat moments where your piece is escalating. Set your DAW to not snap, andadjust the WAV files so that they hit as the piece reaches itscrescendo. The process is described below, in Figure 4.

Samples Included:
? EOP.rar
? 09 SAM Piatti c Samples.rar
? 10 SAM Cymbals c Samples.rar
? Percussion Kits.rar
? SAM Bowed Crotales Lg Sht s Samples.rar
? SAM Bowed Cymbals s Samples.rar
? SAM Gran Casa Ensemble s Low Hits Samples.rar
? SAM Gran Casa Superball s Samples.rar
? Timpani cresc-dim 8s s Samples.rar
? Timpani crescendo 2s s Samples.rar
? Timpani crescendo 4s s Samples.rar
? Timpani crescendo 8s s Samples.rar
? Timpani cymbal-bowl s Samples.rar
? Timpani glissando s Samples.rar

Folder 5: Voices
Thevoices folder, being the final folder to this collection, is the lastpolishing touch you should need to make your piece shine. In thisfolder, you will find samples using the human voice, allowing you to addthat extra needed level of realism to your pieces. I recommend layeringthese samples with samples from the Full Orchestral FX folder. However,I urge you to take caution and not to overuse these samples, astempting as they may be to use. Too much voice can distract from theviewer (if you are making a track for film).

Libraries Included:
? Tonehammer VOXOS
? Tonehammer Cait Ambiences
? Tonehammer Terrie Ambiences

Sincethe release of my Ultimate Orchestral Toolkit, I have received somecriticism for the difficulty in setting up the toolkit. As a result, Ihave included a gift to all downloaders:
New Library Identification Files folder
Usethis updated folder to easily load your multis from the toolkit. Allthe respective instruments are included in this folder. Simply replacethe folder with the older Library Identification Files folder and addeach library with Kontakt. Then, choose each patch you with to load.Note: you will need to change your computer name to Administrator andplace the samples in the folder C://Administrator/Samples/KontaktLibraries/Ultimate Orchestral Toolkit (Kontakt)[BananaButt] for instantloading.
Also, be sure to look for and pick up the legato flute patch, which was missing from the last release!
New Multi for Orchestral Toolkit Users
Ihave also included three new multis, which contain the instruments forthe next, upcoming Orchestral Toolkit release. Note: You will need tohave download and registered the cinesamples Cinebrass library in orderto load Multi A.?

1. Move your completed download to a location of your choice ([username]/samples is recommended).
2. Extract each folders contents and UnRAR each sample pack.
3. Delete the older RAR archives to save space (optional)
4.Start up your DAW of choice, open its browser, and add your Samplesdirectory to its known locations. Then configure it so that each outputis routed to an audio track in your DAW. Add an audio track for your FXthat you will add later on.
5. Enjoy your samples

? These multis were not intended for use with Kontakt. Multis may not work if the corresponding libraries are not registered.
? Tested on Windows 7 x64 bit.

A: Im a Mac user, and Macs dont like WAVs. Where can I find the Mac version (AIFFs)
B:Sorry.There are no AIFF versions for the reason that they are next tounusable to Windows users. However, there are plans to release a Macversion in the near future.

A: Im a Linux user. Can I use this in Ardour or LMMS
B: Yes. Because there are only WAV samples in this pack, you should experience no compatibility issues.

A: WTF, why do you think that loading these samples in Kontakt is a bad idea Seriously
B: There are two very good reasons for not loading samples in this fashion:
1. You can easily time and visualize where the samples increase in amplitude
2. You do not use up valuable instruments in Kontakt, just devoted to a separate instance of it and waste CPU and RAM power
Finally,its quite obvious that you will not be using all of the samplesincluded in one FX instrument. This way, you save on RAM space, and youcan visualize whats coming up in the file.

A: I already have acollection of samples I use for my compositions, and I have them loadedin another VST plugin. What is the best way to proceed
B: You caneither choose to use your older sounds, use the sounds in this library,or decide to go another route. The answer to this question probably hasmore to do with your CPU power than your own decision.

A: I liked a lot of the libraries you included in your collection. Where can I find the missing patches
B:Google it. And you probably wont find much. A lot of the libraries Ihave included are no longer available online due to copyright business.Though I do have all of the libraries from which I made my collection, Ihave no intention to upload any of them. What is included in thislibrary is sufficient to achieve a great deal of realism.
These libraries are really expensive when I look online. How much money is all this stuff worth
Google it.

A: What genres is this collection most suitable for
B:Supplemented by a decent sample collection, it is suitable for mostorchestral film scoring. It is very effective for lyrical writing orthematic writing. With the correct sample collection of FX, it issuitable for horror. This is not suitable for any contemporary genressuch as Pop, Hip-hop, Jazz, or Rock.

A: How do you extract all of your samples from these libraries I would like to do this too?
B:Toextract the sounds from one of your Kontakt libraries, make sure youare running the AiR version of Kontakt (namely the 4.1.1 version. Thennavigate to the Files > Save As, and select the instrument you wishto save. Then, choose Patch samples and choose whether you would liketo compress these samples or not (compressed means in the .NKCcompressed format). Note: you cannot extract newer libraries unless theyare explicitly made compatible. Check your librarys specs.
