So right now the strings options for someone who uses only dry samples are
VSL Dimension Strings / Chamber Strings
Christ Hein Strings
Sample Modeling (by layering many many instances and automating a lot)
NI Symphonic Strings Ensemble
Bernard Herrmann Composer Toolkit

I'm doing orchestration and most of my work is to be able to come up with a realistic orchestral mockup, that can possibly be played by a real orchestra.
Here's my (very simple) workflow:
- Logic Pro X: find ideas
- Sibelius: import ideas from Logic Pro X and then write correctly /...
I am selling these VSL products for half the original price. I will also pay for half the handling fees.
If you do not yet own an eLicenser dongle, I can provide for one for an additional €20.

This may seem like a stupid question, but I've watched both of VSL's videos on the Synchron Strings legato and listened to all of the demo tracks - I can't hear any legato transitions.
Can anyone who has this library confirm or explain what I'm hearing? I was considering buying the library to...
I can't figure out how to achieve this with the Vienna Instruments player (not Pro):
I want to have my velocity xFade set to CC1 for long notes and to keys velocity for short ones. Is this even possible? Even if in VEPro I assign two different channels for longs and shorts, switching...
Ok, I realized this is the time to get some brass to expand my palette.
At now I've got only the VSL SE brasses (I picked all the SE one year ago) and the Epic Orchestra coming with VEP (but never installed). My genres can vary to orchestral to cinematic, so I'm looking for a "general" lib, if...
Here's a measured video walkthrough of the Vienna Smart Orchestra, a sketching library, which will be on sales until September 30. If you already have some of their libraries you can get it for as low as 95 euros. It uses the Synchron engine.
Will you please give me some mixing feedback? My ears are not as good as they once were and I need to know if I am on the right track. The piece used is the Dvorak Symphony 9 Fourth Movement. I have only finished the exposition section.
This is 100% VSL plus the Spitfire Symphonic Strings. All...

After the success of my LOTR mockup, and since I have too little work and too much time since I move back to Switzerland, I decided to tackle a new piece. I asked for suggestions and received quite a few... but finally I decided to go for what I consider the ultimate challenge for string writing...
The VI Pro matrix system has many attributes for live control and dealing with the many articulations VSL provides. But it presents challenges for editing in a DAW, working with articulation/expression systems, controllers etc, as you have to coordinate more than one CC/KS to get a single...
I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum, feel free to movie it. After moving back from the US where I was studying, I spent the past few weeks setting up my workstation and creating a new template in Reaper. I decided to do this mockup of "The Lightning of the Beacons" form the LOTR soundtrack...
Have you ever noticed that while most sample libs feature dynamic crossfade (henceforth 'xfade') for expression control, many of the best demos rarely use it? xfade is an inherent compromise between limited sample levels and the continuous, within-note, dynamics afforded by wind and string...

Here's a comparison I just did on Brass Solo Libraries, the legato patch.
VSL, 8Dio, Cinebrass, Spitfire, Berlin Brass, Hollywood Brass, Sample Modeling brass, and Symphony Series brass are compared with the legato patch.
I'm pleased to share my latest orchestral work, "What Will Become of Us?" featuring all VSL, including a blend of Synchron and Orchestral Strings.
An orchestral tone poem inspired by "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust."

Originally, I posted this piece in a side by side comparison between VSL's solo violin and Embertone's Joshua Bell violin. I've since also changed out the Kontakt piano for Pianoteq's Steinway D. So...the final instrumentation is: Joshua Bell violin, VSL clarinet, and Pianoteq piano...
I recently completed Premonition for violin, viola, and cello. It's a dramatic work with distinct moods that emerge throughout, along with some extended/virtuosic string techniques.
As always, I hope you'll take a moment to listen and comment if you feel so inclined...
All items have been SOLD!
For sale is my license for the Vienna Strings Cube Standard Library.
I'm doing less scoring than anticipated and have a one-year-old that has changed my life priorities, so I have decided to sell.

Originally, this thread turned in to a comparison between VSL's solo violin and Embertone's Joshua Bell violin. I've since also changed out the Kontakt piano for Pianoteq's Steinway D. So...the final instrumentation is: Joshua Bell violin, VSL clarinet, and Pianoteq piano. Hope...
Part of our upcoming album, Acclarion (accordion and clarinet duo) performs alongside various virtual instrument combinations, including this piece, with guitar and marimba. The piece is named Geranos (ritual crane dance associated with the mythical king, Theseus).

I’m wondering what your thoughts are about working with orchestral sections from different sample library developers vs. having all sections from the same developer. I’m currently struggling a bit to get several different orchestral libraries to sound as if they’re in the same space...
I'm thinking about getting hold of the EastWest Hollywood Woodwinds Diamond at $199 to do mock-ups and background stuff, however I already have the VSL SE Woodwinds so could add the SE plus/Vol.2 for about the same price. Wondered if anyone has been able to directly compare these libraries? My...
I've been making some new videos about working with Finale and VSL. So far I've been focusing on SE instruments, but will prob expand at some point. Dealing with customizing matrices, controlling y axis from finale, incorporating keyboard maestro, working with velocity and slot cross...
I have just finished my latest composition, for an electric guitar and string orchestra. I am expanding from my prog rock/fusion background a bit, haha. After programming the orchestra over the guitar, I overdubbed a real violin over the top to add some realism.
I hope you enjoy :)
