'Symphonic Series Vol 4: Piano & Orchestra 1' is the next installment in Producer Loops' stunning "Symphonic Series". Composed and produced by Stern Muzik, bringing their extraordinary talent, vision, and attention-to-detail to this exceptional pack, this next volume of epic symphonic loops spans five feature-packed kits, with a MASSIVE 5.6 GB of uncompressed data per format to transport your projects and mixes from the studio to the big screen and beyond.
Within this mammoth library you'll find five expertly composed Construction Kits with an emphasis on the piano and supporting orchestral instruments. You'll find everything from violins and cellos to bassoons and horns which, when recombined, create an amazingly rich and detailed sound.
A range of major and minor keys are included and every kit comes with a text file outlining the key, tempo and meter of the piece.
Each of the five kits has its own distinct 'feel', ranging from enchanted and magical to reflective and sombre, making this pack extremely versatile and inspiring. Percussion is kept to a minimum, allowing the expressive and evocative phrases to breathe and speak for themselves. Some percussive elements are included, however (such as timpani, cymbals, etc.).
The inspiration for this pack is undoubtedly film music, and Stern Muzik puts their talents to good use in creative a cinematic vibe throughout. Just listen to the demos and let your imagination wander! Of course, this isn't the only application for these loops. Hip Hop producers, game music composers and anyone looking to add some orchestral flare to their project will find a use for them too.
ACID WAV / Apple Loops Versions:
The loops within 'Symphonic Series 4: Piano & Orchestra 1' have been rendered with looping in mind and so you will find both ACID WAV and Apple Loops versions of all loops within the pack. Each element is clearly labelled so you know which part of the original song it is from, and all files are key and tempo tagged so all you need to do is drag and drop.

Hip Hop producers and Dance producers can import the OMF files into their favorite DAW or sequencer, find a hot spot, then set the locators and start working on a beat. Ambient artists may want to loop a woodwind section, pitch it down at least 2 octaves and start mixing this with time-stretched double bass notes. The possibilities are limited only by your own
imagination. If in doubt, download the free pack to play around with some of the loops before you buy.
Using the MIDI files:
Want to use the exact notes of a phrase while adding some patches from your favourite synth? No problem. Thanks to our clear file-naming system you won't need more than a couple of seconds to locate and import the MIDI file representing the notes of your favourite phrase. Output the MIDI loop through your own synth, and come up with some incredible new ideas.
About using the OMF files:
OMF format (Open Media Format) allows you to import a complete arrangement of audio loops into virtually any sequencer. Once loaded, you will see all parts on screen exactly as originally seen when exported, with chunks of audio data on separate tracks, all named by instrument. This format will allow you complete flexibility when re-mixing the arrangements.
Dry loops were used when building the OMF files so feel free to add your own reverb and/or favourite FX to a phrase, a loop or a fully orchestrated fragment. All clips (phrases, loops) carry the same name as the dry and wet loops as well as the MIDI loops which you will find in the folder structure.
By muting or soloing tracks while looping a specific section, you will soon find the exact combination of instruments you want to use for your project. Keep in mind that it might be best to use the same file-naming system when exporting your favourite sections as you may want to add or change things at a later point in your creative proces.
Please note, the OMF files sum up all volumes of the individual tracks while all faders are set to 0 db. Therefore, please set the master fader to around -7 db to avoid clipping and take it from there.
List of Sequencers with OMF Import:
Here is a list of all sequencers that will import the full arrangements of these kits in audio format. When you import these arrangements you will be able to see them in your sequencer as if you had recorded them yourself:

Using these OMF arrangements you will be able to (i) Re-arrange them as desired (ii) Learn how this music was put together.
- 5 Construction Kits containing audio loops and MIDI loops representing musical phrases
- All audio loops are dry (no FX) and the same loops are also available with reverb (tail loops). All in 24-Bit, 44.1 kHz sample rate
- 5 OMF files containing the exact arrangements of the tracks are provided, so you can import the full arrangements into all sequencers which support this format. These files are great to be used as reference files and to export small sections you pick out yourself while having the opportunity to make your own mix before you start exporting. This format is also great for DJ's and sound designers.
- All loops are royalty-free to those who have purchased the product. "Commercial use" of the five original compositions "exactly as they are in the demos" is forbidden, though. One has to make "new music" using our loops to act in accordance with our license agreement.
Wet and dry versions of each loop are included so you can choose whether you want to work with the processed or unprocessed loops. If you want to add your own FX, no problem, simply load up the "dry" loop and get processing! Key and tempo have been tagged into filenames for ease-of-use.
