Where are the ensembles in Philharmonik CE 2

Postby pruthenburg » Sat Dec 24, 2016 9:31 pm

I just bought and downloaded Miroslav Philharmonik CE 2, but there aren't any multis showing up or any of the ensembles that supposedly are included.

Looking for the 31 piece string ensemble,11 piece brass ensemble and 18 piece woodwind ensemble.

Any help appreciated. Under the gun for an arranging project.

Thanks,
Pete

Hello Pete,
I am assuming you have not downloaded the sound content, yet?
What you need to do is, go into your User Area, select My Products, scroll down to Miroslav Philharmonik 2 Classik Edition, and you shall see, right underneath, a Sounds Download link. By clicking on it, you shall reveal a new section, which shall present you with a clickable drop-down list, containing three items. Those three items are the sound contents for the software, download them, one by one, unzip, and follow the instructions. After installing, make sure you configure MP 2 CE to point to the folder where you have installed the sounds. Upon doing that, MP 2 CE shall build the database library, and, tada, there you have your sounds!

Thanks for the reply Marco. Yes actually I've downloaded all the sound content and all sounds are there, but there aren't the ensembles showing up and nothing is in the multis list when I go to the multi tab.

Thanks

You are welcome, Pete.
How does your folder structure look like, when you launch MP 2 CE as a standalone? Do you get Strings, Brass, etc.? When you expand Strings/Brass/Woodwinds, you should see two sub-folders, that is, Ensemble, and Solo. You state you have not got any Ensemble, would you mind taking a screen shot of your current folder structure, in MP 2 CE?

As regards the Multis, CE does not come with them, it is, after all, a streamlined edition.

Merry Christmas!

Regards,
Marco

I have all the ensemble and solo folders, but on the website it says

"Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE provides you with a lush 31-piece string section with 14 violins, 8 violas, 5 cellos and 4 contrabasses.

A playable instrument of the complete ensemble, it’s a great way to quickly make great-sounding simple string arrangements.

Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE comes with an 11-piece brass ensemble that lets you add weight and majesty to any production. In addition to the combined orchestral ensemble instruments, you get individual sections for trumpets, trombones, french horns, trombones and trombone with tubas.

Animated and colorful, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE’s 18-piece woodwind ensemble gives you a full palette of orchestral hues in the form of flutes, piccolos, clarinets, bass clarinets, oboes, bassoons, contrabassoons and English horns. A single instrument combines the ensembles across the full keyboard range for an orchestral woodwind ensemble, and like the brass, a concert band ensemble variation is also provided. "

I have the section ensembles ,but don't see a 31 piece string ensemble, 11 piece brass ensemble, or 18 piece woodwind ensemble anywhere. Maybe they aren't really included after all.

Thanks again!

Oh, I see what you mean, now, my apologies, for not getting this, earlier.
Unfortunately, I am afraid that 31, 11, and 18 are just the totals of the different sub-sections, that is, in the case of the string ensembles, 14+8+5+4=31, and so on. Therefore, there is no single 31-piece string ensemble, and likewise for brass and winds.
You can, of course, load up all the various parts of each ensemble, to build the total number indicated. Also, you get control over each single section, as opposed to having one big single ensemble, particularly if you use the KS instruments.

Cheers,
Marco

Thanks Marco, yeah I was wondering if they just meant the ensemble subsections together equals the total.

Thanks again for the responses. :)

Late reply for subsequent readers of this thread...

You may simply need to do a database re-scan before the multi ensembles (e.g. the "Brass Ensemble", "Full Orchestra Live", "Strings Quartet 1" multis) show up (appearing on the "MULTI" tab of the browser). They are not listed by default after installation.

See this forum post for more info: https://cgi.ikmultimedia.com/ikforum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=13487&p=85859
I understand, at least I think I understand, which is the same thing, I think.
