The Best Cinematic Orchestral Sample Libraries Money Can Buy (My Guide For 2020)

Hi Vi-loving peers! This is the culmination of my opinions on the libraries I think that will give you a super solid foundation in composing cinematic orchestral music. If you'd prefer to have a physical guide to read over, please download the PDF I created specifically for this video in the video description. I wish you all the very best, and I really hope you enjoy!

A little disclaimer: There are a few developers who I don't go over in this video, including Spitfire, EastWest, VSL, and a few others, simply because I don't own many/any of their products. I do mention them at the beginning, just to clear things up :)

Hey Chris this is one of my favorite videos of yours. It’s a great overview of a lot of the best libraries. You sure have a lot of great ones!

I also like a lot of the same brands - Orchestral Tools and CSS especially!

Well, he did say “best” developers not “all.” Lol
I don't think that iff you read this forum you will find a consensus on who the "best" are. But while Chris is certainly entitled to his opinion, if by his own admission he doesn't own many products by the omitted developers, is he really as qualified to make the judgement as someone who does?

Just asking.
