    What do you think about these orchestra demos?

    Someone just turned me on to this low cost orchestral lib. I don't own any orchestral libs at the moment and think this is pretty good for the price?

    Check out the demos at the bottom of the page, and let me know what you think.

    For less monety you can get Kirk Hunter's Emerald which sounds better IMHO.

    Re: What do you think about these orchestra demos?

    From what I heard, I thought it offered a lot in terms of depth and power, but there was nothing in terms of nuance that blew me away especially. To my ears, it's maybe more like something I'd like to add as an embellishment to the orchestral collection, rather than a bread and butter starter kit.

    But I'm thinking more and more that a motley, ecclectic collection of instruments is the ideal, so you don't end up emoting a "Library x" or "Library y" sound, however good those libraries might be.

    (Also, I admit that for one single, affordable orchestra, I'm biased toward GPO, and the way ensembles, etc. really are the sum of the way you modulate the individual parts.)

    The demos sound Ok, but I think overall, the Kirk Hunter Emerald is probably one of the best deals right now, and its a great sounding and very usable library.

    Skip it. Library is not worth it imo.


    I'd get K2 and back that up with another low price library whose name I won't mention. Or GPO advance with the Sam Brass.
