    Humanization / Accurat playing - difference in Solosists vs Ensembles

    It is generally way more likely for a soloist to not exactly hit the beat in a real orchestra. In ensembles, when you have e.g. 16 Violins playing at once, the imperfect but natural playing evens out. Therefore the rhytmic "peak" of a staccato note is more likely to be exactly on beat. In MIDI...

    VSL Synchron Strings Pro Tutti/ combo's Poly Legato -How good is it ?

    Hey, I see a lot of praise for the VSL Synchron Strings Pro on here, but not much talk - about the Polyphonic legato feature in the tutti patch - Which would be of great interest to me, as there are few Ensemble String Libraries that do this, even less convincing. So those with VSL , can you...

    Choosing the best performance (comparing strings)

    This is a blind test again, but I'm interested to know your preferences. You can choose several options. This is a composition I'm working on and it's in progress. It's mostly just Legato so far. I have already decided on the principle of libraries that I will use, and which will go to the...

    Please recommend good orchestral library for learning (eg. lets you peek into pre-orchestrated patches)

    How to make ensemble libraries flow smoothly and sound legato

    I recently made my first orchestral library purchase: 'Palette Symphonic Sketchpad' along with the brush pack 'Melodics'. I think it sounds good, and I like the approach of having an ensemble library along with melodic groupings. The problem is, the ensembles (brass, woodwinds, strings) don't...

    Spitfire people: BML vs SSW/SSB

    I've noticed in the walkthroughs of the older BML libraries, that the outrigger-mics are included, while in the new "symphonic"-brand, they are not (only in expansion packs). Are there any other differences going on under the hood? Same samples, new GUI? Say f.ex Spitfire Audio - BML 101 Flute...

    Review: 8Dio's Century Brass Ensemble

    8.5/10 "Century Brass is a very good library, but it’s note quite achieved greatness yet. The wealth of articulations and versatility, as well as the realism and detail captured in the recordings, are some of the highlights of Century Brass. These standout features are slightly marred by...

    My wife doesn't get it

    So she said that the harmonies, melodies, and pretty everything don't seem "right." Funny thing, I was kind of going for that. I want sort of an off kilter sense of movement. Things were slightly "off" with the octave jumps in the woodwinds and strings as well. I don't know, maybe I'm crazy...

    Making ready-made ensembles with normal libraries

    Hi, Since some time, there has been a lot of what I call "ready-made ensemble" libraries (elsewhere called "instant orchestra"), like Action Strings, Albion One, or the recent The Orchestra. These instruments allow to choose a type of ensemble, a rhythm, a "mood", and with just a keyswitch and...

    Orchestrating Sections in a DAW

    I'm wondering what everyone's opinions are as far as how to orchestrate an instrument section in a DAW. What I normally do for strings is that I use string section patches (Violins I, Violins II, Viola, Cellos, Double Basses) and then I also have a solo patch for each instrument. This seems to...
