  • purchasing help - strings

    Since the opus bundle is now sort of defunct, I'm looking at purchasing just VI strings, and add other libraries for other instruments.

    Does the VI chamber strg package work for a full orchestra setting, or do I need to get the orchestral strings I & II?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hello,

    You may find this link helpful:

    It's a thread about the pros and cons of "stacking" Chamber Strings to get a fuller, orchestral sound with just the chamber strings.

    Also notice there is an upcoming Vienna Instrument named Appassionata Strings which you might want to consider.

  • Okay thank you. Very interesting. I think I'm better off with the OS I & II for my stuff.
