realistic string sounds?

Recommended Posts

Im after string/orchestra. A realistic as possible. Can anyone recommend a programme, keyboard, plug in etc etc. Also, if you do, do you have a link to soundclips?

Cheers

Thanks Stripey,

That looks spot on.

Not suprised that it takes up a lot of hardrive space, if you don't want the strings to sound like a 50 Casio from Argos.

There are many many options.

For strings only, software is better idea, i think.

My suggestions would be.

Garritan Personal Orchestra is quite popular and about 150 if I remember correct. They also do a stradivari solo violin. GPO runs under Kontakt player and comes with it.

You could alternatively get something from EastWest such as their Symphonic Orchestra package. This is generally going to be a bit more expensive though although possibly better.

I got Kontakt player as part of a Native Instruments Komplete bundle and it comes with very good orchestra samples. I think the name of the sample library is VSL.
