    Working with Multis

    Explore some of the ways of approaching and setting up multis for doubling parts in an arrangement.

    Mixing in the DAW

    Rather than using internal Philharmonik processing, explore various strategies for mixing the sounds using your DAW’s plug-ins. Multi output instances of Philharmonik can be used to separate parts so they arrive at discreet channel strips in your DAW. Or, multiple multis can be used as a means of grouping layered sounds together.

    The Live Tab

    See how the Live Tab is used to create set lists, which contain multiple songs. Each song is comprised of several multis, all stored in memory so they can be quickly recalled either via the GUI or via MIDI program change messages.

    Multis & the Part Strip

    See how the Part Strip on the Edit Page is used to edit part based polyphony, transposition, note range, velocity range, and more.

  • image description 4:53

    Instrument Editing Pt. 1

    Explore the sample strip functions, including granular and formant based sound manipulation; and hear how the velocity strip is used to have note velocity effect amplitude, pitch, and filter depth.

  • image description 5:38

    Instrument Editing Pt. 2

    Learn how to use the velocity to filter function to have instruments sound slightly darker when played quietly, and brighter when played with more force; and explore the LFO section and see how it can be used to create a natural vibrato that fades in after a few milliseconds.

  • image description 5:23

    Instrument Editing Pt. 3

    Discover how the envelope section is used to shape the amplitude, filter response, and pitch of a note over time; and how the the key strip is used to create portamento, or pitch transition, effects between notes.

  • image description 6:39

    Macros, MIDI & More

    Explore some ways of using and customizing the built in macro controls, and learn how to create a velocity split multi.

Product Overview


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.

Miroslav Philharmonik 2 Explained® is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 16 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Super stoked there was a tutorial, and by EK to boot! Miroslav's GUI caught my eye the month or so I was researching various orchestral plugins. So stoked it was EK to do the breakdown of this one. Man, I even got it all going with Ableton from watching how this tutorial did it in Logic. Bravo!

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Helped me get started with the plugin. Eli really knows his stuff! Eli is a pretty good teacher, but I wish he would have gone into more detail with this plugin. There are areas where more depth would have been very helpful. Some people like myself are just beginning to learn about & use orchestral instruments, and can use a bit more info about the general subject of these instruments. Still, it's a very helpful video series!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Just the help I needed! I had purchased MP2 but couldn't figure out how to use it, let alone, get the most out of it (the IK user manual sucks). The videos of Groove3 provided exactly the help I needed! The videos are well produced, in depth and easy to follow. I love the fact I can go back and review the videos as a group or just the ones I need. The products Groove3 offers are fairly priced and well worth the investment!

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Fantastic tutorial, very well explained. The most detailed video on Philharmonik 2 I've found.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very good explainations Thinking about purchase and wanted to see how the program responds.
Date published: 2016-10-08
Rated 3.5 out of 5 by from 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.
