    VSL Flute, Oboe, Clarinet Ensembles (3 players) from VSL Single Winds worth having ?

    So I have the main VSL Synchron WW, and I must say it is excellent - The legato, the runs, the amount of choice - Pretty much it has everything. What it did not have though (though you can layer Flute 1 + 2 etc) is ensembles of each instrument , and I have noticed that having 3 wind players on...

    Woodwinds with "real" section thought?

    Most woodwind libraries have either "ensemble" or solo patches. If you've spent a couple of hours reading orchestral scores, what's most common is sections of a woodwind instrument (3 flutes, 2 oboes+ cor anglais etc) play in 2 or 3 part harmony and sometimes a2, a3. However the solo patches...

    Best Woodwind Library(ies) for WW Quartet + Quintet writing / mock up ?

    Hi , I know there is a lot of post about best WW library overall etc , but I wanted some input from people that have used VST Woodwind libraries for smaller, chamber sized Quartets or Quintets (ignoring the French horn for now). Most libraries do come with Soloists , which will obviously make...

    Experiment/Composition: Red, Purple, Orange – Colours of the Orchestra

    Hi everyone, I wanted to experiment with the various 'colours' within an orchestra, from growling bassoons to sugarcoated French horns. Wouldn't dare to call this an actual composition, but it taught me a great deal about orchestration and how to work with VSTs. (That said, I think the...

    Playable Woodwind Library

    Does anyone know of a woodwind library that has similar playability to MS Adventure Brass/Strings or anything by Performance Samples? Something that is more reactive to the duration of which a note is held that doesn't require a crap load of key switching.

    Huge Woodwind Ensembles?

    We have seen stuff like 60 chellos ensembles and huge numbers of french horns playing at once, more than just one time. Why aren‘t there any (or barely any) huge woodwinds ensemble recordings? 30 flutes at once? Wouldn‘t that give a very intersting texture? Is there something out there, which...

    Torn about Brass/Woods libraries...

    So I've been composing for about 4-5 years now and it feels like I'm starting to hit a wall with what I can do with Brass and Woodwinds now that I've actually started scoring projects. Albion One is great for big epic sounds, but doesn't let me compose for instrument sections (plus, I don't...

    EWQL Hollywood Diamond Instrumentation (Woodwind Patches)

    Am I correct in thinking that all woodwind patches are of individual instruments and as such, they should be orchestrated that way? For example, if I am writing a part where 2 flutes play in unison, I should have 2 patches playing the exact same thing until such a point where they play divisi...

    EastWest Hollywood Woodwinds vs VSL SE Woodwinds

    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...

    Need help getting woodwinds behind the strings!

    Hi everyone! I transcribed Mike Verta's 'The Race' (sorry Mike, I hope it is right!) and started mocking it up yesterday afternoon. Obviously it is far from finished in any respect, but I am having a particular difficulty getting my woodwinds to sit in the mix. I think the strings and brass...

    Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds: where are the Performace Legato patches?
