Palette is a series of thematic professional orchestral and cinematic Kontakt virtual instruments for songwriters and media composers. It was recorded in a dedicated hall with world-renowned performers by a passionate and experienced team of sample makers. It was a dream come true for us to make and Red Room Audio hopes this expansive set of scoring tools inspires you to write some great music.
There’s an awful lot of content here, so to make things more accessible Red Room Audio divided it into multiple products. The first is “Palette – Symphonic Sketchpad (Affiliate Link),” which contains the building blocks to quickly and easily bring your cinematic ideas to life. Then, to add detail and color to your compositions Red Room Audio has put together additional toolsets Red Room Audio call “Brush Packs.” Brush packs focus on deeper and more specific scoring elements like orchestral FX, percussion loops or true-legato melodic ensembles. Pick up the tools you want and not the ones you don’t. Since all Palette instruments were recorded in the same hall by the same production team and the same musicians, they complement each other perfectly.
Palette – Symphonic Sketchpad (Affiliate Link) is a 26+GB library featuring strings, woodwinds, brass, choir and percussion and to fill out the list of essential writing tools Red Room Audio added piano, harp and even a set of modern trailer instruments. The orchestral ensembles offer a nice variety of articulations, including 4 kinds of short notes, as well as trills, tremolo, pizzicato, and other deeper techniques. We recorded 3 dynamic layers and up to 7 round robins and to give you even more flexibility we recorded everything in 2 different ensemble sizes (chamber and full) so you can go epic or go intimate.

PSS also offers 22 essential tonal and atonal orchestral percussion instruments, sampled in up to 7 dynamics with 5 round robin for both left and right hand (where applicable). Standard hits, rolls, and other unique articulations are included. The drums, cymbals and auxiliary instruments are combined in one simple GM-style patch to minimize your track count. Red Room Audio also added 6-player ensemble trailer drums and hand percussion patches with the v1.1 update.
Red Room Audio piano is a beautiful Steinway B Grand, recorded in the hall with 6 dynamic layers and multiple round-robin.
The concert harp patch features standard plucks and a unique “glissandi maker” script, which simulates realistic pedaling to produce hundreds of scales you can perform at any length or speed by simply sweeping your controller’s keys up and down.
