Your next steps in SINE

We designed the SINEplayer around the typical composer workflow. There are loads of ways to manage and adjust your instruments in SINE, but here are the most important ones.

How to load an instrument

Just drag an instrument to the Articulation List on the right. You can load instruments or articulations—drag and drop.

How to manage articulations

Instruments have multiple articulations—different playing styles and sounds. You can arrange them as you like to suit your music and playing style.

How to download more instruments

When you need more instruments, head to My Licenses and download what you need. Or check the store to get new collections and instruments.

Benefits of using SINE

Just download what you need

Relax about your disk space: Just download the instruments and mic positions you need—no need to download the entire collection at once. Same goes for the shop, too: You can buy single instruments instead of full collections if you prefer.

Easy to customize

Some people like working with keyswitches, some people don’t. No problem—you can customize SINE to match your workflow. The articulation list is really powerful, and there are loads of advanced options under the hood.

Detailed control when you need it

From total control over dynamics and round robins to multiple legato options, when you want pin-point control, it’s there. But it won’t get in your way when you don’t need it.

Mix and merge

Preserve your system resources: Fine-tune your mix using multiple mic positions, then merge into a single channel within the player.

Great sounds included, totally FREE

The SINEplayer includes an array of useful instruments—piano, strings, percussion, and more. This is our free SINEfactory library, and it’s constantly growing. Take a look under My Licenses, and download what you need.

FAQ

Why do I need to use a player?

It makes a lot of things easier. For example, on a basic level it means you have a consistent workflow across all your OT collections. This is key—we created SINE originally because we felt that the tools available at the time weren’t really suited to a compositional workflow. And advanced users can get even more out of SINE—being able to build combination patches with instruments from multiple collections, or the detailed dynamics control, for example. On a practical level, it saves us from putting the same features in every collection we release.

Does SINE include any sounds?

Yes! SINE itself is a player engine and an instrument store, so you can get sounds, or instruments, from within SINE: Start out with our free SINEfactory instruments—you’ll find a free piano, strings, percussion, and more under My Licenses. Then head to the Store to pick up our free orchestral chords collection, Layers.

Is it really free? What’s the catch?

Yes, it’s really free, and there’s no catch. All you need to do is set up an OT account. We treat your account data with the utmost care—it’s secure and it’s not shared anywhere. And we recommend that you sign up for our newsletters. Our marketing mails are optional, but if you’re subscribed, you’ll get to hear about new product releases and special offers, and maybe get a free gift for the holidays…

Does it work in Pro Tools?

As of SINE update 1.0.6, yes. It took us a while to make it AAX compatible, so you might see some old comments here and there. But it’s working now—sorry to all you Pro Tools folks who had to wait, it was a tough nut to crack.

Does it work in FL Studio?

Yes, it does. There were some issues with early SINE versions, but they’re solved now.

I'm having an issue with SINE, can someone help me?

Yes! If you’re experiencing an issue with SINE, please consult our Helpdesk page for guidance. If the issue persists, reach out to our dedicated support team at support@orchestraltools.com. They’re great, and they’ll be happy to assist you.

A base frequency of 3.6 Ghz or higher works best.
