Just curious, what's everyone's library choices in terms for emotional/drama/textural? Please fill the categories below:


1- Strings (both full and solo strings apply): -----
2- Textures (non-electronic): -----
3- Choir/Vocals: -----

I would hope it'd depend entirely on the story you're trying to help tell. In my opinion, asking someone to make an emotional texture is like asking a Foley artist to make a "weather texture." There's a lot of undisclosed nuance there.

But, if someone told me "make an emotional texture in five minutes and I'll give you your weight in SSDs," I guess I'd reach for some spitfire thing. Albion V or an Evo maybe.

The program Paul Stretch is basically god mode for creating textures out of anything. You can stretch a 3 second motif into a lush harmonic pad and control the harmonic octaves. Its really great
Granular synthesis in general is good for that, come to think of it. Or a long reverb with a slow attack/minimal ERs.

I think the question is a bit vague, any examples of the style to which you're referring? Most music is emotional and textural to the composer

I will record some examples later but basically: String longs, no shorts, slow lyrical melody played by 1st violins while remaining sections playing a mixture of harmonics and sustains, choir or vocals join in later to sing the melody in parallel with 1st violins etc etc ........

Thanks for clarifying! I think that a lot of well recorded libraries can handle it, but if you're serious about harmonics and a moody sound Spitfire might be a good one to look into. If you're thinking higher dynamics, Metropolis might have some good dramatic and heavy patches too and you'd get choir included. I'm curious what others think!

I’m layering CSS with BDT and I like the results.
