I remember reading and listening to Elhardt's sorcery when he managed to perform some amazing orchestral instruments using Arturia's Moog Modular V. Had always been a fan of using synthesizers for emulating acoustic percussive sounds. So Elhardt's samples really inspired me, but since I'm too cheap to get Arturia's Moog I used free synths instead. Unfortunately there aren't really any free modular synths so I just used what I have. I chose Synth1. Anyway, it's not as convincing as Elhardt's samples but I'm pretty satisfied so far. Recently got better results for brass.
These are a tad crude (early stages) since I haven't finished building all the articulations.
No plans yet ... this is just an interesting concept I'm picking up. And there seems to be a lot more work to be done to achieve further realism. I can imagine the need for developing external plugins to make this fully functional. ... Unless of course, I can always try to convince Ichiro Toda to create a customized version of Synth1.
Wow this is very impressive, I could have never imagne Synth1 sounding like that.
Maybe the platform that could help you building playable patch from different VSTi/VST is Kore. Or Reason with it's Combinator, but you will have then to use Thor, Substractor or Malstrom.
Well, if you are looking for money, you could always resample the result you have with Synth1 and build library for Kontakt and sell those. I can already see usage for those combined with real instruments.
Features a musicbox (beginning), xylophone (not sure if this is really it, I get confused with marimbas, glock, celesta and xylophones :P), and the brass sections again. This is just a quick MIDI run through, with slight adjustments to normalize the volumes.
