WOODS OF THE WILD – MYSTERY UNVEILED
Illuminate the beautiful, mystical side of orchestral music with WOODS OF THE WILD, the latest expansion into the world of THE ORCHESTRA COMPLETE. This fresh, individually recorded woodwind section is obligatory for a rich and complete orchestral pallet. With triple tongues, rips, and trills, we’ve packed articulations not just for woodwinds but even for other wind instruments such as piccolo and alto flute and English horn. The library also includes mallets and other wooden drums to pound out a proper dose of savage intensity.
WOODS OF THE WILD is invoked by:
- 13 solo wind instruments with 5+ articulations each, plus bonus winds
- 4 ensemble articulations
- Massive percussion sounds, including: Taiko, Tom Ensemble, Snare Drum, and more.
- More wood-based percussion, such as: Marimba, Vibraphone, Crotales, Celeste, and more.
- A MIDI-export feature
- 34 voicings for the powerful new Ensemble Engine
- Pure Performance Legato – Makes legato instruments more intuitive to play
WOODS OF THE WILD works as a stand-alone instrument. It is also included in THE ORCHESTRA COMPLETE 3.
THE MYSTICAL TIMBRE OF WOODWINDS
In the world of faeries and satyrs, woodwinds carry a hidden magic that unlocks doors, creates portals through time, and gives birth to legends. With WOODS OF THE WILD, THE ORCHESTRA COMPLETE 3 obtains the old magic of lost tales and heroes’ journeys.
WOODS OF THE WILD is not simply a winds and percussion library. It explores new, untamed directions in music, with inspiring articulations and an ensemble engine that provides the ability to create fully orchestrated music with the press of a simple chord.
WOODS OF THE WILD reproduces the sound of woodwind instruments in their softest as well as loudest dynamics. All woodwind instruments were recorded in three dynamic layers and each sample was also carefully hand-edited to morph smoothly and seamlessly between each layer.

Pure Performance Legato
We are proud to introduce a completely redesigned performance legato engine. This allows you to play both fast true legato and staccato runs without any problems, as the engine can distinguish between both articulations without the need for keyswitches. We have paid special attention to the integration of the true legato transitions, fitting each of the more than 400 transitions per instrument independently into the intervals in a way that allows for a very smooth and playable legato.
The Core: The Ensemble Engine
WOODS OF THE WILD comes with an absolutely savage ensemble engine that includes the latest updates from THE ORCHESTRA COMPLETE 3. The main page was updated with a new and improved Voicings selection. You can assign which instrument plays which note of the chord to allow for more realistic ensemble sounds. Or you can choose from our 34 pre-arranged Voicings. The Ensemble Engine is just like having a real-life orchestrator working for you.
Also included with WOODS OF THE WILD is the new Sequence Designer carried over from THE ORCHESTRA COMPLETE 3. The engine works through three independent arpeggiators and two envelope engines. You can now create your own individual musical patterns in addition to the standard options. These sequences can be edited individually, giving you the freedom to create more detailed compositions.
With the Voicings and the Arpeggiator, it is easy to create pulsating rhythms and inspiring arrangements from any combinations of notes. There’s no need to rely on pre-recorded phrases when you have this level of unprecedented control at your hands.

- 38 Voicings or preset ensemble combinations
- Independant arpeggiators and velocity envelopes create vivid and powerful orchestral colors
- Load up to 5 different instruments and play them together
- Every slot can be assigned to 1 of 5 different modules

ARPEGGIATORThe arpeggiator creates fascinating melodic patterns to give your project a rich and lively orchestral feeling. Change the pattern of the arpeggiator with the rhythm stepper. If needed, you can modify almost every parameter to stay in full control of your orchestral color.
VELOCITY ENVELOPE – SHAPE YOUR SUSTAIN SOUNDSThe Velocity Envelope adds a recurring dynamic movement to a sustaining note. The centerpiece is the envelope shape, which can be drawn freely.
