Symphobia 2

Symphobia 2


John Ottman

Composer for Valkyrie, Superman Returns, X-Men 2 and The Usual Suspects

“HOLY MOLY!! You have no idea how reinvigorating it was to go into Symphobia last night. It was a super rough day, I was very tired, but I decided to listen to a few sounds before bed about 11pm.—I ended up being up until 4am overhauling my entire writing template! Seriously, this is the best sounding stuff I’ve ever heard—and I don’t just mean the multi sounds; but the individual ensemble samples are superb. Additionally, the program seems so stable and reliable.”

John Powell

Composer for Kung Fu Panda, Shrek and the Bourne series

“Symphobia is a very well crafted library. There is a richness to the samples generally not heard from other commercial libraries. I am pleased to add the sounds of Symphobia to my sonic palette”

Jesper Kyd

Composer for the Assassin’s Creed series, Hitman series, Borderlands, Kane & Lynch and Freedom Fighters

“Symphobia contains some of the most expressive and realistic sounds I have heard in an orchestral library. The sounds have more character than any other orchestral library I have used. The SAM Libraries are recorded in a really attractive way. High quality, [...] rich performers with just the right amount of reverb. What I also like is that SAM matches very well with other libraries and blends in smoothly with live orchestral recordings.

Brian Tyler

Film composer for Alien vs Predator 2 and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

“Symphobia is an amazing sampler library that is live, naturalistic, and intense. There is no other library like this. The sounds maintain the rough edges of real live playing, preserved by the brilliant ProjectSam team thus capturing what orchestral samples are supposed to do. The SAM True Strike library possesses unmatched musicality and realism. You can sense the presence of the player behind the instrument - not just the instrument - not just the instrument itself.

Bill Brown

Composer for CSI:NY and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars

“ProjectSAM has definitely taken orchestral sampling to the next level with Symphobia. This library sounds more realistic than any commercial library I’ve heard, and the thoughtful and recording and design of the patches makes composing fast and a whole lot of fun! One of the many amazing things about Symphobia is the way each of the tutti patches are laid out accross the keyboard. Instead of articulations for each section of the orchestra - you have the orchestra from top to bottom, right under your fingertips ready to play. This is quite possibly the best thing since sliced bread - for your studio and music, not for a sandwich. But if it were a sandwich, it was a very exciting one that takes your sample library to the next level. I can’t wait to see what ProjectSAM does next!”

Shawn Patterson

Composer for Robot Chicken, Season 5, RC Star Wars III, Titan Maximum

“Never in my career have I found such a singularly unique musically creative tool. With Symphobia virtually every patch you open is exceptional and instantaneously inspirational. The recording quality alone is breath taking. This library is going to infect and affect the music world, as we know it like some kind of beautiful, orchestral virus.”

What IS Symphobia?

Symphobia 2 is a more of what you’ve been missing in your orchestral palette. New and exciting orchestral articulations, massive amounts of fresh and inspiring symphonic effects, exclusive legato ensembles with real legato transitions, dystopia III and a brand-new interface.

I already own Symphobia, is Symphobia 2 a replacement?

Not at all! Symphobia is an evolution and extension - you will extend your possibilities when using both Symphobia and Symphobia 2 together. Therefore, there is no uprade path - however, if you own both Symphobia and Symphobia 2, you will have access to a very exclusive bonus patch!

Is Symphobia 2 compatible with PowerPC Macs?

No. Symphobia 2 is powered by Kontakt 4 technology, which basically means that an Intel Mac is required, as well as an OS X 10.5 or 10.6. If you’re a Windows user, you must have Windows 7, Vista or XP.

How much RAM do you need for Symphobia 2?

With DFD enabled the smaller patches require around 20-30MB of RAM and the larger ones 60-80RAM. A mininmum of 2GB of RAM is recommended by ProjectSAM

Symphobia is only 20GB on my hardrive, but it states that it has a 33GB sample pool?

Kontakt 4.1 introduces lossless, compressed sample storing. Symphobia 2 uses this new feature and therefore takes up less DVD and hard drive space. The actual, uncompressed sample pool size for Symphobia 2, is however, 33 GB.
