The Free Orchestra By ProjectSAM Now Works In Kontakt Player


ProjectSAM has updated The Free Orchestra, a free cinematic orchestra sound library. The library is now fully compatible with the free Kontakt Player plugin by Native Instruments.

The Free Orchestra contains over 1 GB of high-quality cinematic samples handpicked from ProjectSAM’s best-selling orchestra libraries. It features a wide range of orchestra sounds, from string staccatos to brass clusters and symphonic percussion. The latest edition of The Free Orchestra contains all twelve original presets and two newly added ones from the Symphobia 4 library.

In addition to the new sounds, The Free Orchestra now features a collection of new multis. These are layered presets that utilize the already included sounds to create new and inspiring layered instrument patches for NI Kontakt.

Most importantly, the new version of The Free Orchestra is fully compatible with the freeware Kontakt Player virtual instrument by Native Instruments. This means that you can use ProjectSAM’s professional-quality orchestra samples completely free of charge without having to purchase the full version of NI Kontakt. The free Kontakt Player instrument is available in VST, AU, AAX, and RTAS plugin formats for digital audio workstations on PC and Mac.

On a related note, ProjectSAM has introduced Symphobia 4: Pandora Core. This is a virtual instrument library based on the full version of Pandora but limited to a single cinematic mic set. It costs 199 EUR and features over 17 GB of orchestral ensemble recordings.

The Free Orchestra can be downloaded completely free of charge via ProjectSAM. You will also need to download the free Kontakt Player plugin from Native Instruments. At the moment, ProjectSAM’s website seems to be down, probably due to a large amount of traffic. Hopefully, the issue will be resolved soon so that you can download your copy of The Free Orchestra.

  1. Awesome news! ProjectSAM have one of the best sounding libraries for my taste, but their prices always kept me away from them… and it was such a pity that their free stuff required full version of Kontakt before. Now they’ve become a great competitor to Spitfire LABS.

    This is great. I had the individual ones from last year. But now they are all in one instrument. And you can use NI Access and have them show up in the libraries if you have Kontakt full. Good quality stuff as well.

  3. This is really a marvellous gift. The choir is breathtaking beautifully sampled, the strikes of the whole orchestra will make your speakers tremble… The selection of sounds available in this free instrument is very generous to say the least. Thank you very much team SAM
