Synth Magic has released the Siel Orchestra MK2, a new Kontakt full instrument library featuring sounds of the SIEL Orchestra and ARP Quartet.
The ’70s and ’80s gave us many synth highlights. Many of these instruments are legendary today. During this time, some obscure synthesizers have come onto the market that has not achieved cult status but are part of history. One of these is the Siel Orchestra from 1979. An instrument that was also sold under the name ARP Quartet.
It’s a 4-part orchestral Synthesizer that features four presets, including brass, strings, organ, and piano. The preset can be changed very minimally, with a filter or just an envelope. The British developer Synth Magic has now melted these synth classics into a new affordable Kontakt instrument.
Synth Magic Siel Orchestra MK 2
Siel Orchestra MK2 is a new Kontakt (full) instrument that features samples from the classic SIEL Orchestra 2 / ARP Quartet analog synthesizers. In all, 1.5GB of sample content is used in this new release.
Synth Magic sampled the original hardware twice through high-quality pre-amps and again using wonky tape. Unlike the original hardware, you can manipulate the sounds further with filters, envelopes, effects, and more.
Further, the Siel Orchestra MK2 ships with many great-sounding patches that give you beautiful, haunting analog strings and synth sounds.
Synth Magic Siel Orchestra MK 2 is available now for an introductory price of £15 instead of £25. It requires the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1, and it doesn’t work in Kontakt Player. You can also purchase it at Loot Audio and get free products on top.
