iSymphonic Orchestra was designed with the goal to deliver you superb, extremely realistic and stunning orchestra sounds, instantly with the first key being pressed by you on your MIDI keyboard. Just select a sound and you are ready for your live performance or for a boost of creativity while composing new songs. The sounds used in this app were explicitly recorded to fulfill these requirements and involved several months of recording and post processing under supervision of Kurt Ader and included a variety of innovative, new recording techniques. So far these sounds were only available to very few, famous movie composers. Now they are finally available for the first time to everybody. The supreme quality of these sounds, combined with the unique way they were recorded and assembled, gives us confidence that you haven't heard anything comparable as of to date, even not on Mac or PC.

Ratings and Reviews
Sounds work with Linnstrument!!!
This app works very well with the Linnstrument controller. The app is stable. I really am impressed with the sounds. I would like the developer to expand the sound sets even more. Admittedly, this is one of the first sound set of this type that I own. The reverbs and the echoes effects are a nice touch. These effects are simple, intuitive and very useful, although basic. Overall, this is a nice addition. The basic app purchase includes a basic set of sounds. Additional sound sets can be added as in app purchases. Each additional sound sets are about the same the starting app price which gets you about a dozen or more sounds plus or minus. Maybe I’m paying a premium price, but the sounds are convincing.
3 out of 5 for me. I would have love to have woodwinds, horns only and strings only in app purchases. I have been searching for apps with soprano recorder, but none to be found.
Great for doing soundscapes, would have love to have some strings that I can use when creating nostalgic 70s disco stuff like Night Fever - Bee Gees. Stomp - Bros Johnson, Love to Love You Baby - Donna Summers.
After a lot of in app purchases, I have to keep looking elsewhere.
I had to open the wallet again and turn to SampleTank.
Amazing Sounds!!!! BUT..Not yet an full AU with GB
Crashes with GarageBand... Some sounds wont merge, sounds change from what you originally record. Audio engine stops every 5 min..you have to reload the whole program then find the sound you were using. Just bought these all in app purchases very disappointed with this as an AU.
But the sounds are Amazing. I contacted the company and got an immediate response clarifying it has issues that were being addressed and (This issue would be fully repaired by the up and coming update.) That makes this the best app for IPad Pro sounds available IMO.
