  • Wich Strings bundle to buy?

    Hello

    I have to decide if to buy the "Chamber Strings" bundle (full) or the "Orchestral strings" bundle (full).

    My orchestral compositions nearly always have a complex harmony of seven or more voices, so there could be:

    violins 1, violins 2, violins 3, each with an independent line.

    violas 1, violas 2, each with...

    cellos 1, cello 2, each with...

    double bass 1, d.bass 2, each with...

    So, if I have the "Orchestral Strings" I will have the sound of 42 (!!) violins (3 times 14); 20 violas and so on. That, I guess, would be quite unreal.

    What about using Chamber Strings that would give me 6 X 3 violins, and so on...

    In theory this should be the right way, but I'm not sure about the "reality" of sampled orchestra.

    I would really appreciate the opinion of some more expert person.

    I add that I'm not composing "film music" but more the so called "contemporary" music (...whatever that means...!). This means that I'm not searching for the "Holliwood sound".

    Thanks a lot for the help

  • Salve,

    l'istinto mi dice che tu sei italiano, come me. Io ti consiglierei qualcosa di diverso (ecco perchè sto evitando di scrivere nella lingua qui universalmente usata), perchè in questo contesto non posso scriverlo, ovviamente...

    Se vuoi un parere differente, mandami pure un messaggio privato e ti risponderò volentieri. Scusa questo "alone di segretezza", ma non mi va di litigare con gli altri utenti.

    Un saluto.


  • Ciao Miki,

    volentieri, ma come ti raggiungo privatamente?

    Roberto
