Sample Science – The Total Composure Orchestra (KONTAKT)

The Total Composure Orchestra is a complete orchestral sample library created using only publicly available samples. Total Composure is the first to offer such a library exclusively for the Kontakt format;Harnessing the power of Kontakt scripts to significantly improve the reproducibility, realism, and functionality of these public domain samples. Scenarios are aimed at providing the same functionality for different groups of tools, regardless of the tool; while more specific settings play on the strength of each instrument.

Most instruments contain only one set of samples for articulation, and some have only one recorded dynamic layer — this is one of the many limitations that we found when using public domain samples. 

Although we have done a great job on this product, it is important to remember that it is based on samples provided by a small number of people for free. Total Composure collected these samples from different places and brought them all into one place where they can be used together. This library has over 1,500 samples totaling more than 1.5 GB, but we used Kontakt lossless compression to reduce the size to 500 MB.
