Miroslav Philharmonik has carved a niche for itself in the crowded landscape of orchestral libraries by offering sounds focusing on emotional character. In this info-packed tutorial series, studio expert Eli Krantzberg demonstrates how to pull every last nuance out of this impressive virtual string instrument.

Beginning with the interface, Eli shows you around the Play, Mix, Edit, Macro, and FX Tabs and explains what they all do. Then he explores how to Browse, Load, and Record Multi-Articulation Key Switch Instruments. This leads directly into a video on how to work with Multis.

Eli then tackles how to Mix in the Virtual Box using Philharmonik 2’s Internal Effects exclusively in one video, and then gives you strategies for Mixing in your DAW of choice. Philharmonik 2 can also be used in a live context. Eli demonstrates how to work with Patterns to set up Note Triggers, and how to use the Live Tab to Create Set Lists that contain multiple songs consisting of different Multis.

The next group of video tutorials explore editing in Philharmonik 2, and you’ll discover how to use the Part Strip on the Edit Page to Edit Part-Based Polyphony, Transposition, Note Range, and in-depth Instrument Editing. Moving on you’ll learn to use the Sample Strip Functions, Velocity Strip, Velocity to Filter functions, and the Envelope Section.

Finally, the series concludes with how to Customize the Built-In Macro Controls, Strategies for Using MIDI, and more. Whether this is your first experience with the Miroslav Philharmonik virtual instrument, or you’re an experienced user looking to get more out of this expressive tool, watch “Miroslav Philharmonik 2 Explained” today!

Good, okay, it will suffice

I am not familiar with working with DAWs yet, and would have appreciated a little more detail - specifically with Logic Pro and it's integration with MP2. Perhaps in another more advanced tutorial? Also, there were buttons, drop-downs that were out of the frame - again, with more familiarity with the UI (which he obviously had) that would have been find; but not for a rank beginner, like me.

Response from Customer Service:

Thank you for your review
If you need help with DAW's like Logic Pro, we absolutely have tutorials dedicated to teaching you the ins and outs. Check out Logic Pro Explained as that will be a great start.
I'm sorry you lowered your rating because of the lack of Logic training in this tutorial but we have an entire Logic page for you to check out and learn everything you can about the DAW.
Enjoy!

Had some good insights

Bought this to get an introduction to Miroslav 2. I was especially interessted in how to humanize and edit instrument scores since I had no prior experience in that field and the manual of Miroslav 2 is a bit of a mess for a beginner with the instrument. Would have wished for some more details but as an introduction this course works OK.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing drums in high school at age fourteen. Like most kids my age around then, I was into progressive rock. Genesis, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Yes. They rocked my world. A few short years later though, my musical life changed. While studying music in college I discovered Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Sonny Stitt, and John Coltrane. Milt Jackson spoke to me in such a profound way that it left me no choice but to take up vibraphone.

These great players, along with  drummers like Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones changed not only the way I thought about drumming, but also music - and by extension, life - as a whole. I realized life was meant to be a creative endeavor. The idea of improvising based on a loose set of guidelines and rules permeated into my psyche even when I wasn't holding a pair of drumsticks or mallets. But if I am going to be perfectly truthful, I have to hold Henry Miller and Woody Allen equally responsible for shaping the way I view and experience the world around me. 

2. What training have you had?

I am currently an Apple certified Logic Pro. Young and cocky, and armed with only a partial University degree, I dropped out of school and  began playing steady commercial hotel engagements and jazz gigs when I could. This went on for many years until I decided it was time to complete my degree - which I ultimately did with a major in Political Science and a minor in music. 

It was at this point that I formed my current band Nightshift. We are going in to our twenty third year now - playing commercial one nighters like weddings, corporate events, etc. Don't turn your nose up at it though - it has allowed me a wonderful quality of life. It gave me the freedom to go back to school and complete a post graduate degree in Communications Studies - all the while supporting myself by playing weddings.

3. When did you get into recording?

It was in this graduate program - in the early nineties - that I found myself drawn to the fledgling emerging universe of hard disc recording and midi sequencing. Based on nothing more than the recommendation of one of my band mates who had an old Atari, I jumped in head first and bought a Mac LC ll, along with a version 1.1 of what was then Notator Logic. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But, in hindsight, it was a decision of epic importance in my life - shaping my future as much as the music of Milt Jackson and Charlie Parker did fifteen years prior. 

I opened up my own commercial home studio in 1998 and began doing a variety of projects, working on radio jingles, artist CD projects, and whatever came my way. A couple of years later a colleague called me up - desperate. He was working at a post production house and one of the editors had just quit. They were doing audio post for a weekly TV series and needed a Pro Tools editor - and fast! And so, once again, I jumped in head first into what would ultimately open up my world even more - the world of Pro Tools. 

4. People you have worked with/for?

Focusing on Logic, I built up a small but loyal client base and my phone kept ringing for Logic tech support and instruction. Film composers and studio owners all over the city were calling me. Even the music stores were giving out my phone number at this point! This kind of stuff becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The more of it you do, the more calls you get to keep doing it. At least that's the way it should be!

As my Logic chops kept growing, I was hired by an old buddy of mine, Len Sasso, who was then an associate editor at Electronic Musician magazine, and began writing some columns for them. I had a blast doing them - and really learned to focus and express my thoughts in a concise and clear manner. This lead to a collaboration with LA based composer Terry Michael Huud on the 2006 film called Civic Duty - which was certainly one of the highlights of my professional life as a composer. 

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I wake up every day excited to boot up, and create. Whether it's instructional videos, creating music, working with a studio client, performing with my band, or teaching at the schools - my days are filled with what I love doing. Enriched by the stimulation and creative freedom this modern music making software brings to my life. I bring that excitement and passion to each and every training product I create. My years of experience both using and teaching these programs has taught me the best way to make the user comfortable with these complex programs.
