We've been following the progress of this orchestral library since it was first announced at Winter NAMM, we got some great footage of Dave Kerzner giving it a workout at this year's Musik Messe too.
Crafted from the original library of Miroslav Vitous, of jazz fusion legends Weather Report, this library has received much praise for it's warmth and character. IK Multimedia, with the expert guidance of ace samplist Dave Kerzner of Sonic Reality and the features of IK's own SampleTank 2 engine have created the 7GB Philharmonik orchestra and choir plugin.
