New member here and also new to orchestration. I've been eyeing the Volume 1 – Essential Orchestra, seems like a great starter pack and easily extensible as I progress. VSL is overwhelming for newbies so I have a couple of questions that a quick search here didn't throw any results for (but the search function here feels like its 1999). Let me know if I should separate my post into multiple threads.
1) Is there any difference between using the Vienna key or eLicenser? I was under the impression that I had to use both, but I've seen people claim its either or. If this is true, any differences I should be aware of when chosing?
2) Anybody here have experience using VSL on Bitwig? I think the Synchron player is based on VST2, so it should work...
3) I'd like to stay away from Kontakt as much as possible. I just want to confirm my statement above that the Synchron player is indeed a VST plugin that I can call from my DAW without the need for Kontakt.
