Well, with talk about Synful heating up again it might be a good time to post this! The backstory on this piece is that I did the basic work on it about two months ago with GOS, getting to know that library. Last month when I was on my Synful trial period I had the presence of mind to run all the string tracks through Synful and set them aside with the idea of blending it in behind GOS. Today I took some time and more-or-less finished the piece by tweaking all the GOS strings and shifting the Synful stuff into sync, adding woodwinds and the legetti-like coda. The result is great, I think- 95% of what you hear is GOS, but Synful gives it a presence. There is also a hint of VSL violin in the 1st violins (these are the ones that come bundled with GS3 Orchestra) but they are very light. All the effects are GOS.
This piece is part of a large work based on the story of the Lady of Shalott, who who killed herself for love of Sir Lancelot.
All in all it uses:
Sam Solo Sessions Brass and Horn effects
This isn't a final mix quite- there are some little boogers here and there still Feedback welcome!!

Here are some comparisons of a section of the center of the piece in GOS and Synful- only versions. Remember, the Synful files were done from the same MIDI parts used for GOS without being replayed- only control data taken out- so they sound very bad and should not be taken as a representation of how Synful could have sounded were the part correctly played into it. I did it simply to get a different color under GOS and mixed carefully I think it worked. Please don't listen to the Synful only file and bag on Synful because it sounds bad- it's entirely because of the circumstances. By the time I got around to putting this together my Synful trial period was over. actually, in a strange way the weirdness of the phrasing of Synful under the GOS sound kind of helps. There's always one guy in a section, you know
