Advice on Orchestration using MIDI/VSTs posted by Tuomas Easton

|I've always been a fan of orchestration in music and scoring, and have thus far mainly used Reason for it. I have various samples, and even some old soundfonts that I have combined to get the closest-to-'real' sound I can. As mainly a keyboard / keytar player, recording the actual string instruments isn't really an option for me, I've just been using midi controllers and keyboards to do the best I can. |
Does anyone have any software suggestions or tips on how to make strings/orchestra sound more 'real'?
Here is an example of my Orchestration so far.
Yes. If you're using an ipad, a good app to use is symphony Pro. Which you're able to export your compositions in MIDI inout.
If you need any composition jobs, hit me up any time.
Best way is to get a real (VST) orchestra. And the best orchestra sound for VST instruments are Vienna Symphonic Library or EastWest/Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra. Both are huge and idk, need to check the system requirement wich is quite hm... high.
|Thanks! I've heard of East/West and wasn't sure how complicated it might be to learn the program. I'll check into it!|
|The industry standard for sample library's is Native Instruments Kontakt, it is a very powerful and flexible sample library player.|
