The Eq is a 3 band equalizer with gain and frequency controls with an additional bandwidth control for the mid frequencies. What do you think about that, does that seem realistic? A versatile set of 18 orchestral percussion instruments, recorded at Studio 22, Budapest. Recorded in a naturally rich and lush spacious A-Frame hall using world class large-diaphragm microphones and pristine ultra-quiet recorders, we carefully mixed and mastered each sample to deliver explosive power, unmatched acoustic quality, wide dynamic range, and stunning life-like clarity and presence. Brass Solo The Brass section of an orchestra is known for some of the powerful and brilliant sounds in an orchestra with big horn blasts to convey a sense of urgency or moments of valor and victory but when played softly can convey a real sense of mystery and menace these qualities make the Brass sections a big and important part of any orchestra. That's worth a look too.
You'll get all the Symphonic Essentials but also so much more that will help with trailers such as Damage, Evolve, some great pianos, drums, bass,Action Strikes, some great synths , and so much more. They're pretty limited in their content and playability. So if you're doing an ostinato, it will start to sound like a loop rather quickly. Being able to control the attack is something that is sometimes overlooked in sample libraries, and there are very deep microphone and mixing options, and everything is very clearly laid out, showing information regarding keyswitches, mapping, round robins, etc. A wide range of articulations, powerful performance features, on-board effects, and a unified workflow make this an essential tool for composers and producers of all genres. It's good for skins and cymbals, not so good for pitched percussion. If you're doing just trailer music and not a lot of detailed writing then jumping to Komplete 11 Ultimate is possibly a better way to go.
You might be surprised at how well the sound stacks up to a much more expensive Library. Symphony Essentials Brass Solo is comprised of five soloist instruments Horn 1, Horn 2, Trombone, Trumpet and Tuba as well as a Brass quartet where four of the major Brass instruments are programmed out all over your keyboard. The individual Strings, Brass, Woodwinds and Percussion sections deliver new articulations and sounds including lush string sordinos and flageolets, a massive, 8-player French Horn section, new, powerful drum sounds and chilling bowed cymbal scrapes. It's nice when that happens but even libraries that do that will be limited in other ways. The timpani is decent for my tastes, though some might find it a little on the dull side. True Strike is resellable too, but can only be sold once per license and for a fee I believe. They're wonderful, expressive instruments and these libraries are everything but.

Back to Symphony Essentials -Just for comparison sake, here is a nice little video comparing String Essentials to Spitfire Symphonic Strings. Good as a basic library, but you'll soon be wanting better if you use it a lot. The timpani can sound good, but don't sound the same as most timpani in other libraries. The trombones, both the ensemble and the solo are very, very bad.
To answer your question about upgrading to K11, since K11 does not contain Symphony String Essentials then you can't update it to the full version since there is nothing to update from. It's a mixed bag, some parts are good, some parts, like a few of the tuned percussions, are pretty bad. For each of the orchestral sections, an essential list of articulations is available, as well as one expressive legato instrument and an inspiring set of clusters, textures and effects. The strings ensemble is a nice library that really fits together well in the whole symphony essentials package and really rounds it all out to be a full and beautifully sounding symphonic package as with the other libraries the recording of all the ensembles in the strings package is done with the highest degree of care and that shows in how the ensembles sound. Personally I think, compared to Project Sam, Spitfires Albions, Cinesamples Cinesymphony Lite and all those ensemble libraries it's pretty decent to have all the solo instruments from brass and woowinds avaiable too! All licenses, posted here, they are just for personal, testing and education purpose, using it in commercial is not encourage. I cannot believe it is still installed.
It includes strings, percussion, woodwinds, solo woodwinds, brass, and solo brass. Vibrato allows you to modulate the pitch and intensity of a note which can add more natural movement to your sound. Brass and Woodwinds have better options on the market imo, but that's highly subjective, and I only have the essentials from these two. The timpani is decent for my tastes, though some might find it a little on the dull side. Also being an owner of Symphony Series Woodwinds, I knew that this was not going to be a dry library. Underneath the dynamics knob we have sliders for Attack, Release, Tightness and Vibrato allowing you to change the character of your notes and create even more expressiveness in your music.
I knew what to expect after listening to multiple audio demos, but was still very pleased just playing around with the new sample set. I'm in need of an orchestral percussion library. Being the person I am, of course I had to strive for the upgraded and much larger Symphony Series, which includes everything in Essentials plus a lot more the full, complete edition. These controls are essential to getting your 32 piece Brass ensemble to sound just as you want them and allowing them to take their own space in the virtual stage you are trying to create. There was a time where saying that might have even got me banned around here - but don't let anyone make you think you have to own Spitfire to be a competitive composer.
The first and the third piece are block chords and ostinato patterns, exactly what the strong points of these libraries are. With a range of essential articulations, standardized intuitive interface, and on-board effects they are perfect for basic orchestral composition and pop and electronic production. The articulations in Strings Ensembles are split up in two styles long and short and there are not as many as say the brass section but they do provide you with all the articulations you need to create a beautiful strings section that does not sound static or boring. A 60-piece string section recorded at Studio 22, Budapest. Brass Essentials has 73 ensemble and 80 solo articulations and the full one has 183 ensemble and 120 solo articulations.
Mic options can clean up things a bit though. The full-sized set of professional scoring tools. Unfortunately I don't own any previous Komplete version so that a crossgrade would be very nice priced now. I am sure someone could make some use of this library if they had to. The snares I really like - they sound great! Please also see the and the. Current 'normal' to have multiples of everything, yet sensible over several genres, workflows, etc. If orchestral is all you want, you might save by passing on Ultimate altogether.
It will also have Session Horns Pro and new version of Session Strings Pro called Session Strings Pro 2. But it's really really sharp and hard. At the center of all of the Symphonic Essentials instruments is the dynamics knob which allows you to effortlessly glide between all the recorded dynamic layers of the instruments and is pre-mapped to your Mod wheel on your keyboard playing with this knob can let you create some really expressive phrases in your music. A bit cold and sharp. Having the articulations mapped and being able to switch them in real time is allot of fun and can really liven up your piece of music. Percussion is great, strings sound cool just upgraded to the full version. This allows round-robin sets that recreate the real-world sound of played drums, adjusting for style and performance.
