Other than the sound of the instruments and the hall they are recorded in (which I like a lot), is there anything I can do with the ensemble patch in The Orchestra that I can't do (with a lot more effort) with Cthulhu or Kirnu Cream or Thesys in front of a Kontakt multi?
If you just wanted an arp. Other software can do that, but this is 5 variations of orchestra intended arps, with accurate dynamics and envelopes applied. Some settings may just be staccato rhythms, others are a mix of arcs, sustains and staccato rhythms blended. It’s a good inspirational jumping off point in some applications.
