The best orchestral instrument for musicians on a budget


Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE

Sounds too good to be true. (But it is.)

Get ready, it's your turn to step up to the conductor's podium to experience the most emotional orchestral collection ever released with Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE. When it comes to new sounds, variety, character and content size, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE beats every competitor. 

Now you can command strings that soar, woodwinds that dance, brass that commands and a symphony's worth of sounds for a fraction of the cost of the full version. Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE is an affordable entry into legendary jazz bassist and sampling visionary Miroslav Vitous' lush new world of near-cinematic orchestral musical realism. It includes a 10GB library with 733 instruments spread out across all the instrument categories provided in the full version of Miroslav Philharmonik 2.




And just like in the full version, each of its instruments captures the uniquely human element that has made Miroslav Philharmonik 2 such a go-to tool for composers, soundtrack scorers, producers and more. It gives you all of Miroslav Philharmonik 2's multi-articulation switching instruments.

These instruments let you easily access the most used articulations for your chosen instrument type on the fly. You can go from sustained to detache, staccato, legato, pizzicato or any number of other musical articulations without leaving the main instrument.

This means that when you select an instrument to play, you won't just hear a note — you'll hear all the passion, pain, joy, suffering and excitement of the musician playing that note.


Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE lets you enter a nearly infinite world of emotional symphonic sound. It comes with 34 of the best studio plug-in effects from IK Multimedia's acclaimed SampleTank 3 sound and groove workstation. You can control these on their own, or you can take advantage of each instrument's 8 macros that give you quick access to the most commonly used parameters for effortlessly simple sonic sculpting on the fly. It also comes with the ConvoRoom convolution reverb plus 4 professional-grade mastering processors from T-RackS.

A symphony in your computer

Human expression, emotional feeling, musical grandeur — these are the qualities that have made Miroslav Philharmonik 2 such a highly regarded orchestral collection. Its sounds offer an amazingly lifelike playing experience with power, passion and emotion that's unmatched by any other comparable library. The sample collection that makes up Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE draws from both the new Miroslav Philharmonik 2 sessions and the time-proven Miroslav Philharmonik 1 library.

Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE lets you experience the power of the full version for a fraction of the price. It comes with a 10GB collection with over 700 instruments that cover all the categories of the full version. This includes violins, violas, cellos, trumpets, french horns, trombones, tubas, bassoon, flutes, english horns and more. Each of these instruments comes with its own realistic articulations that let you add that human touch quickly and easily. All instruments in Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE are provided at a processor-friendly 16-bit/44.1kHz sample rate so you can use them easily on any computer.


Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE contains the following instruments:

211 Strings
162 Brass
231 Woodwinds
55 Orchestral Sections
25 Choirs
4 Grand Pianos
3 Chromatic Instruments
22 Percussion Instruments
20 Other Classical Instruments


Ensemble Strings

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.

For more complex orchestration, you can go deeper into the separate ensemble instrument sections for violins, violas, cellos and contrabasses.

Each section is available with multiple articulations.


Solo Strings

Bring your playing to life with masterfully played violin, viola, cello and contrabass.

Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE’s deep range of articulations lets you easily add human expressiveness and emotion to your compositions by choosing exactly the right articulation for the musical passage you are creating.

Switch between articulations on the fly or load dedicated single articulation instruments.


Ensemble Brass

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. These give you the freedom to start arranging immediately without having to load multiple instruments. The available combinations will allow to find just the right density for your ensemble sound, or use the ensembles as a way to jump start your creative process.


Solo Brass

Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE’s brass ensemble is pretty impressive, but a whole is only the sum of its parts: each individual brass instrument has been recorded by a top classical musician. You get solo trumpet, french horn, tenor trombone, bass trombone and tuba instruments that each come with their own wide range of articulations for maximum expression and tonal color. A single brass quintet instrument provides fast access to the full solo instrument range from tuba all the way up to trumpet, and then there are master key switching instruments for each solo instrument type. Load the solo french horn key switching instrument to quickly go between sustained, portato, legato and staccato articulations all within a single part.


Ensemble Woodwinds

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. Then for each section, there is a master key switching instrument that contains the primary articulations for each instrument. These options let you control single woodwind ensemble instruments in your arrangement at an incredibly detailed level.


Solo Woodwinds

Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE gives you incredible flexibility and power when it comes to solo flute, piccolo, clarinet, bass clarinet, English horn, oboe, bassoon and contrabassoon arrangements.

You get a woodwinds quartet and a quintet that are both available as master solo instruments. Then as with the other categories, there are master key switching instruments for each solo woodwind.

With these, you can have total control over all the solo woodwind instruments — with every available articulation — with just 8 parts!



The grand piano is an essential element of the modern symphony orchestra.

Our meticulously recorded stereo 9’ concert grand provides all the epic majesty, drama and richness that symphonic music demands.

With full-length samples, a deep matrix of velocity splits and soundboard modeling from the specific piano we captured, the Philharmonik Grand is ready to perform as both solo instrument and supporting cast member of the larger orchestra.

The Philharmonik Grand is also highly suitable for pop, jazz and other genres with its depth and quality.



Also referred to as tuned percussion, the Miroslav Philharmonik 2 chromatic instruments add punctuation, sparkle and color to any symphonic production.

The collection of mallet instruments includes a concert marimba, a glockenspiel and orchestral chimes from the new Miroslav Philharmonik 2 sessions along with harpsichord, celeste and crotals from the Miroslav Philharmonik 1 collection.
