    Amadeus Symphonic Orchestra - anyone here use this outside of sketching?

    I was looking at a few threads here on VIC and walkthrough videos of Amadeus Symphonic Orchestra. For 150usd (99usd with EDU), it sounds really good to me! - Scripted legato, but not such a big problem imo, as it also sounds good to me. - A lot of instruments, and even the choirs sound pretty...

    Falling into madness

    I'd love to know what you think. The composition is a little repetitive, but so is obsessive thinking, and I was trying to convey madness from that point of view: a madman who thinks he's still a genius, standing in his office, thinking obsessively and looking through some "interesting" papers...
