    Some Bruckner and Roland - any thoughts?

    I know I\'m a masochist. A little classical orchestral sample - a little rough - but invite your comments none the less.

    Some Bruckner using Roland Strings and Horns, Sam trumpets etc. Reverb is just old NFX, sequencer Overture.

    If your interested, download \"Brucknerm4\" from :

    http://briefcase.yahoo.com/duoartc

    in the music folder.

    As a Thomas has pointed out (and others) the Roland library is a bargain.

    Are you still out there Gungnir?

    Thanks King for the interest. Don\'t know what\'s happening to the site. I can access it. I\'ll look into it. Otherwise I can email - unfortuneately it\'s 1.6 meg.

    Craig, it sounds great. In this setting the Roland strings work very well.

    Bruckner brings heaven to earth.

    Sounds nice. What Roland library(ies) did you use and where are they available?

    Thanks Shawn, bg.

    The Roland samples are on a two CD ROM set ORCHESTRAL FAMILY SERIES Vol 1 & 2 I bought probably 6 to 8 years ago and used with a Roland 760. The samples are converted to GIGA with Chicken Systems software. Don\'t know if you can still get them - one disc is strings, the other brass.

    Trumpets are SAM, trombones and tuba both layered QLB and Roland with woodwind from Advanced Orchestra on the Pro Samples highlights CD ROM.

    Roland doesn\'t appear to make that many sample CD\'s anymore. They have a series for their XV-5080 machine. Demos of the CD\'s are at: http://www.roland.co.uk/gr10/proddemos.asp

    These CD\'s retail for $299 each.

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">I was curious how the strings on Strings and Orchestral Percussion L-CDX-04 (which includes the old Archive String Section samples) compare with those on Orchestral Family L-CD702 (Craig\'s recording). FWIW, this is from rec.music.makers.synth:

    The Orchestral Family Vol 1 & 2 is better than String Sections Vol.1 and
    Brass Sections Vol.1. Better variety and some samples not present in Brass
    sect and Strings sect

    I have Orchestral Percussion L-CDX-04, which I bought for the percussion, and not for the included strings. I did not use the strings much (or at all) because I was using AO and Jaeger and a few other string libs. Then while sketching for the third installment of a song cycle I am doing, I used the Roland strings and I was very surprised. Then Thomas came along with a song of his and I was even more surprised. You really have to use these strings together to appreciate them. In a few days I will post another song I have been working on that really features the Roland strings, and you can see what I mean.
