    Looking for 'playable' orchestra

    For playble orchestral libraries, you should definitely check out Musical Sampling and Performance Samples. For epic cinematic music, Trailer Strings and Brass are really good. Caspian Brass is another option and Oceania is a great sounding playble choir library.

    Help me choose the next library

    There is so many excellent libraries that it's impossible to mention all of them, but I hope this get's you started: Strings: LA Scoring Strings (V3 is coming soon I guess) - pretty dry, really versatile sound, full divisi. Spitfire Chamber Strings - smaller sections, detailed sound and...

    ProjectSAM S4:Pandora

    Yeah, it sounds like Project Sams take on Action Strings type library, but with full orchestra. There also seems to be some recorded glissandos for harp, effects for strings and tutti, timpani hits, cymbals, etc. Maybe there is no melodic instruments and it's all about the rhythm?

    New Symphobia is on it's way! Sounds pretty good to my ears.

    Help me choose the next library

    I am sure that Jaeger already covers the epic trailer sound pretty well, and has a lot of similarities with Ark 1 and Albion One. I would go for versatility, remember that you can use samples that are not designed for "epic music" for epic music as well. And sometimes it works better that way.

    Help me choose the next library

    Metropolis Ark 1 and Albion One are both great libraries but are a bit limited. I only have Metropolis from the two and I hardly use the strings or woodwinds from it. The choir sounds amazing and is the best part of the library imo. Brass is okay but a bit too limited and I really miss legato...

    What strings lib for mocking up this piece?

    I think that all the Spitfire libraries that are recorded at Air are totally too wet and different sounding for this example. I agree with @Fleer that Hollywood Strings could work as well.

    What strings lib for mocking up this piece?

    I think there is some mixing magic involved. In the beginning the string sound is more intimate and more close miked, but when the climax comes it definitely sounds bigger. But in the sample world it's not only about the amount of players that makes the sound, I would start with a smaller, more...

    What strings lib for mocking up this piece?

    It sounds lush but I would go with a chamber sized library with a nice reverb for the detailed sound. I think the first demo here sounds pretty close, maybe needs a bit more reverb though: http://lightandsoundsamples.com/chamberstrings.html

    Cinebrass Bug

    I agree with you. You should get better customer service and if the problem is not fixed, a full refund. But I really doubt you are gonna get your money back...

    Cinebrass Bug

    Actually no. Because you pay the money for a license of the audio files and they can't be sure that the customer deletes the files. You can't use it anymore in Kontakt, but remember, they are not selling Kontakt instruments. I also think they have to pay Native Instruments for every license when...

    Cinebrass Bug

    Yeah, I agree that if product is not working, you should get a refund. But with sample libraries it's not that simple and it's a bit unfair in my opinion. Because sample library developers have made it a different kind of business. You don't pay for the product or an instrument, you pay for the...

    Orchestral Percussion Sample Library

    Rhapsody, VSL, Truestrike and EWQLSO are all good, you should also check this: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/cinematic/symphony-series-percussion/ If you have Kontakt full, you could try the factory library percussion.

    Embertone's Shire Whistle even has a patch called Braveheart. It's a really good instrument. https://www.embertone.com/instruments/shirewhistle.php#1

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    I think this is worth checking out as well: https://www.steinberg.net/en/products/vst/iconica/sections_and_players.html It has a trial if you want to try it out before you buying.

    Best Harp Library

    Amazing examples. What is you favorite one? To me, Spitfire, Orchestral Tools and VSL sound the best for orchestral use.

    Updating/refreshing orchestral template

    I think you got a really nice collection already. Only thing that comes to my mind is that all of your libraries(except VSL) are wet. So maybe try adding some dry libraries for a different sound? LASS and other Audiobro libraries are really good. Sample Modelling Brass is another one to consider...

    Where Should I Go To Get These 80s Sounds?

    This is one of my favorite synths for this kind of stuff: https://tal-software.com/products/tal-u-no-lx It's pretty cheap and has amazing add-on packages for 80's sounds.

    Once Great, Now Unavailable Libraries?

    Yeah, it's same samples but Sonivox version is more limited, no different dynamic layers in sustains, less articulations, etc. If they would start selling them for Kontakt once more with better scripting and simulated legato, it would make a really nice starter orchestra. The sound of the...

    Can you help me to complete library collection for trailer / epic music?

    I think you already have strings and brass covered pretty well, so I wouldn't advice you to go with Ark. (The choir is great though.) Have you checked Omnisphere? That would give you pretty much everything you are after. All of the sounds might not be on the same level as a dedicated library but...

    An Incandascence Of the Dark Lord

    Hah. :rofl: Yeah, that definitely sounds more like Dimmu now. Though I think that the correct term for this is dimmufied. :rofl: It's actually pretty hard to get a nice sound when so much is happening and it really needs a lot of precise EQing to still have some life and body in the mix.

    An Incandascence Of the Dark Lord

    Yeah. Actually the Dimmu Borgir song I posted was meant to be a extreme example of the bass drum sound without any mids. I am not suggesting that Alex should mix the songs same way. There is no right or wrong in how someone should mix their metal song, it's all about the song and the feeling you...

    An Incandascence Of the Dark Lord

    Yeah, the beautiful thing with metal music is that there is so many ways to do it. I am not actually suggesting anything too extreme, just little tweaks to make it sound more like the cornerstone albums of the genre. That is of course only my opinion and advice, but it would bring more power and...

    An Incandascence Of the Dark Lord

    Yeah, I can feel the spirit of Dimmu Borgir here. :) There is few things I would do differently in the mix. I would EQ out some low end from the guitars. I would also raise kick drum, snare and toms a bit. Kick could also have a bit more high end snap in the sound, now it kind of gets buried...

    [QUESTION] Which Orchestral Libraries are a must-have for film/game scoring?

    I agree. That's why I don't think that Composer Cloud is a good place to start. Just too much content for a beginner to go through and get familiar when you should be focusing on composing your first pieces. I still remember when I started with EWQLSO and was totally overwhelmed by all the...

    [QUESTION] Which Orchestral Libraries are a must-have for film/game scoring?

    Yeah, I kind of have to disagree as well with choosing wet libraries over drier ones. It's not that simple. I think it's better to have some kind of control over the space if you only are gonna use one library. But of course you can do great music with both and it's all about what you want and...

    [QUESTION] Which Orchestral Libraries are a must-have for film/game scoring?

    Cinematic Studio Series is definitely a good choice. Not completed yet though and might be a bit limited with articulations. If you are experienced with your DAW and know how to mix, VSL might be a solid option as well. AudioBro just released MSB, so you could buy LASS, MSB and LADD and have a...

    Orchestral library for 1000€

    I don't have The Orchestra or Amadeus, but when listening the demos, The Orchestra sounds a lot better to me. With that sale price it's pretty hard to beat... It is just unbelievable that you can get with such a little money these days. When I started out and bought EWQLSO the price was totally...

    Looking for a sample of crowd yealling hey.

    Hi guys, I need a sample of audience yelling hey. I mean something that you could hear on a rock concert. I could record some myself but don't have my rig set up at the moment and would like to make a demo of the project as soon as possible. I am not talking about some massive stadium ambiance...

    Why VSL (still) rocks

    I don't have Mir but I've used VSS many times with VSL instruments and it sounds good as well. I use it for panning and ER and Spaces for the hall. https://www.parallax-audio.com/index.php

    Budget Woodwinds Shootout!

    I am pretty sure that anyone who talks about sounding like John Williams is not talking about his latest scores but the iconic scores he is famous for. But I could be wrong of course. Also thinking about the sound of the hall is not important in this kind of thing, because it doesn't work the...

    Budget Woodwinds Shootout!

    For John Williams sound, I would go with VSL definitely. If you want to write parts like that, you are gonna need fast legato and clean sound. I would also buy the expansion for it, so you get the trills, etc as well. Cinesamples are my second choice, because it's recorded in the same place...

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    Well that's why I said some people, not everyone. I like it, but I can understand if someone else doesn't. I don't really need a new library, I got so many already. But if I buy one, it has to give me some new tools. I have liked what I've heard but would like to hear more demos as well.

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    I think some people were expecting another brass library with instant trailer sound. But how I hear MSB, is that it's more realistic and raw, like a real recordings of a brass instruments. It needs to be mixed to sound like a finished product but the magic is, that you are not tied into a...

    What are your favourite Brass Libraries then?

    These are my most used libraries for brass writing: CineBrass Core and Pro Sample Modelling Brass Adventure Brass Metropolis Ark 1 Brass Sometimes I also use Da Capo brass. I have Bravura Scoring Brass as well, but SM Brass replaced it.

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    Yes, I agree. Always when I use close microphones for brass instruments in live situations they sound nasal and thin. Especially when the brass players bring their own clip on mics. If it's not a small and loud stage, I like to add a pair of condenser microphones to get the overall sound of the...

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    To me, the decca tree sounds really good for this type of music. And I can't hear any of those annoying artifacts that most of the libraries with a bigger hall have. Just a little bit of reverb and EQ and it's ready to go. Really intimate and detailed sound. Close mics sound a bit thin but I...

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    I hope we get a brass only version of this song as well. What I can hear from this dressed demo is that with a little use of EQ, I could get the brass sound a lot different if needed.
