Passionate Strings

Orchestral strings do much to convey emotion and drama. The violins (I and II), violas, celli and basses in Iconica Sections and Players make sure your audience really feels those passions!

Superb woodwinds

From piccolo flute through to contra bassoon, woodwinds are the most diverse group of instruments in the orchestra. Iconica includes flutes, oboes, clarinets, and bassoons, along with additional instruments.

Brass brilliance

Whether it is the majesty of a trumpet fanfare, a complex jazz solo or the many musical sides of a brass band, Iconica’s trumpets, trombones, French horns, tuba, and euphonium make playing brass parts a pleasure.

Vast percussion section

Broadly speaking, there are four major areas of orchestral percussion: Timpani, Melodic Percussion, Drums, and Metals. All are represented in a vast percussion section, with many different instruments to choose from.

Ethereal harp

The ethereal sound of the concert harp adds a touch of sonic beauty to any composition. It includes a variety of major, minor and pentatonic glissandi, pres de la table and harmonics.

Expression Maps

VST 3’s unique Note Expression and Expression Maps open up brand-new areas of potential, allowing users to create unique textures and aleatoric effects which are almost impossible with other libraries.

Iconica Sections & Players

Over 145 GB of strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion and harp samples, including a huge variety of expressions and articulations.

Iconica Ensembles

Tons of presets and 45 GB of carefully handcrafted orchestral ensembles makes composition fast and agile.

Iconica Opus 

Iconica Opus combines Iconica Sections & Players and Iconica Ensembles into an amazingly powerful, inspirational composition tool.

Intimately detailed recordings from a legendary Berlin studio

Iconica is the only orchestral library recorded entirely at the legendary Funkhaus Berlin, renowned for its recordings of movie soundtracks, TV series, and major classical works. Produced in collaboration with specialist company Orchestral Tools, the samples were recorded by 76 musicians — including 50 players just for the strings — in Studio 2, a 400m2 room with a 10,5m floor to ceiling height and a pleasing reverb time of around 1.5 seconds. Recorded over the course of a month, the acoustic separation of Funkhaus Berlin’s studios guarantees crystal-clear samples which capture the sounds of the orchestra in perfect, intimate detail.

Created with Orchestral Tools

Iconica has been created in collaboration with leading orchestral samples company Orchestral Tools. Well respected for its high-end orchestral libraries, like the Berlin Series and Metropolis Ark, Orchestral Tools worked with Steinberg to record the samples in one of its longest ever sessions. Both companies are extremely proud of Iconica which delivers a complete solution for orchestral productions and sound design.
