From sketching out rough scores to producing fully-fledged, philharmonic masterpieces, there’s a lot you can do with Orchestral Tools’ instruments. And while each one covers a lot of sonic ground individually, they all have their own specialty – from the bread-and-butter patches of Berlin Inspire, to the clustered, percussive articulations of the epic Metropolis Ark 3. Watch the video below to hear each instrument in action and find out how to put them to work in your next production.

All of the instruments featured in the video are available from our online shop here.
