Hey Mrvegas. Was also a bit surprised to only see a first comment so late. I guess most folk see the word "orchestral" and just move on
. But it is going up in listens, so there you go.
The Horn you like is the Solo French Horn that's part of EWQLSO Platinum. I mixed a few of the mic positions to get the rich sound I was looking for. I'm glad it came through
. I think all the orchestral instruments are from that library. The Taikos are from Nine Volt Audios Taikos, which I mixed with the stage mic Taikos from EWQLSO to give it natural sense of space over the power.
So I tend to take the best parts of various libraries and combine them into a sound that works.
I also own Peter Siedlaczeks Advanced Orchestra which in other compositions I've mixed together with EWQL to get the sound I'm looking for.
I also strongly recommend everything from the G-town Church Sampling Project. It's a creative commons free library you should still probably be able to download.
I'll admit that EWQLSO for a while has left me feeling restricted (Especially the strings). It's certainly powerful, but libraries have come some ways since then and I'm slowly upgrading my arsenal to newer libraries.
"Touch" was a controlled improvise to be played with part of a movie for a buddies project. Incidentally the piano there was also part of EWQLSO Platinum which has a beautiful sound. A Steinway which has a bright sound but applying a LPF to it gives a very classical feel.
Thanks for the feedback. Glad you enjoyed.
