Advice on orchestal VSTs?

2009-02-24 08:15:00 by ke200

Well, I've tried and tried, but I just can't get my orchestra sounding realistic enough. Every note is struck individually and I have no idea how to correct that. It IS possible to create an awesome sounding orchestra with just VSTs, but I have no idea how. If someone can point me in the right direction with a link or give advice, I'd be grateful, even if it's just pointing towards a VST set that worked for you when composing an orchestra.

Yo, I'm working with East West Symphonic Orchestra. It sounds quite realistic. Vienna Orchestra sounds very good, too. The PLAY engine used in East West products offers lots of possibilites to adjust the samples. Sadly, I don't own the the "new" PLAY because it's only available for $$. But it works nevertheless.

I liked your fable remix alot. What did you use for the drums? Did you play them or is that an awesome VST I could need =)?!

That was just a VST from Sampletank 2 with some added effects - it came out pretty well for a VST!

I know this might be hard, but you could try to get an actual orchestra, and make them play everynote in existence with every instrument and every possible combination of instruments possible. That might save you some time, but it might also drive you and your new-found orchestra crazy. I dunno. If music is worth that, then....go for it.
