Morphestra™ is todays cinematic virtual instrument.Sample Logics award-winning team presents a powerful collection of creatively new and inventive organic instruments. Morphestra is derived entirely from orchestral recordings and psycho-acoustic sound design. In association with Kirk Hunter Studios and powered by Native Instruments Kontakt Player 3, Morphestra is an epic collection of over 27 GB and 1200+ instruments and multis delivered pre-installed on a pocket-sized Glyph hard drive.
Out of the box, Morphestra is ideal for film, TV, video games, electronic music, ambient music, multimedia genres, and much more... Its powerful instruments and multis stand on their own making it a must have. This makes creating an entire production possible without the assistance of any additional third-party instruments and effects. This cine-organic achievement surpasses any library of its kind. Rather than reinventing the traditional orchestra, Sample Logic has created a modern-day virtual instrument using effectual techniques. Morphestra includes: cinematic atmospheres, innovative arpeggiated/gated melodic and rhythmic instruments, thunderous percussive impacts, transition trailer effects, and dynamic rhythmic loops, and lush evocative pads, just to name a few.
As if this wasnt enough...
Morphestra sets the trend for the future, not only in sonic quality, but also with its plug-and-play delivery system that streamlines installation. Pre-installed on a reliable and portable 80 GB Glyph hard drive, Morphestra is small enough to fit into a pocket and powerful enough to support high track-count audio sessions.

How was Morphestra created?
Sounds have been recorded from all over the world and include: Symphonic/World percussion, Vocals, Guitars, Waterphone, Animals, Warehouses, Strings, Brass, Winds, Tools, Machinery and an entire realm of World/Ethnic instruments. We then manipulated these sounds using various proprietary Sample Logic techniques and combined them with multiple electronic synthesis elements to create new, organic, never-before-heard instruments and ensembles.
Whats under the hood?
Morphestra is packed with 27+ GB of over 1200 instruments and multis. The library is divided into 3 main categories: Atmospheres, Instrumentals, Percussives
All of these instruments are derived from orchestral studio and field recordings, many of which were manipulated, morphed, and processed at multiple stages of product development, including the sample production phase, the programming phase, and in real-time via Morphestra’s user controllable interface parameters.
- Atmosphere/ambient soundscapes and stinger construction kits
- Melodic and rhythmic tempo-synced loops, loop construction kits, and arpeggiated/gated melodic and impact sequences
- Single impacts, cinematic impact ensembles, and percussive kits
- Morphed winds, strings, synths, mallets, bells, solo and ensemble pads and melodic instruments
- Swipes, scrapes, and reverse transitional trailer effects
- Performance-ready multis (playable interactive presets templates made from multiple instruments)
Rich, evocative and expensive sounding. The new library from Morphestra is epic - BT -
Morphestra seems to have fused all that is great with AIR, Elements and Synergy, placed them into Warp Drive with a divine palette of orchestral textures and rhythms and placed it right in your lap with one elegant Plug In. The sonic integrity is deeper, wider and more transparent than anything Sample Logic has done before. This is a must have for any composer serious about Film ,Television and Game scoring. -David Lawrence -
I was really surprised at how cinematic and dramatic these instruments are. A highly cinematic original tool set with an impressive range of instruments - Jesper Kyd -
The guys over at samplelogic have done it ! - surprised me. I am looking forward to using MORPHESTRA on my next movie score. Finding original sounds to use while writing is essential and inspiring. MORPHESTRA is going to be my new go-to tool. - Rupert Gregson-Williams -
Sample Logic has impressed me yet again with Morphestra. Ive always loved the organization of SL patches, and was happy to see they had continued this tradition. But theyve certainly outdone themselves with these sounds. When Im scoring, looking for elements and sounds to add to the palette, I need diversity. This is an incredibly diverse library and it will see some heavy use here for quite some time. Well done gentlemen! Mark Isham -
Morphestra carries on the Sample Logic tradition bringing more fresh and inspiring textures. I really appreciate the simple and intuitive controls making morphing quick and easy. The Multis are great and really show off Morphestras power and variety of textures. This is a library I will be using for years to come. - Tom Salta -
Great morphing ambiences, great morphing pulses and another fast, intuitive Kontakt interface from Sample Logic.. all combine to make an exciting, relevant and useful library. - Bill Brown
