Well, I totally forgot that this was still there! It was a rough, quick draft so from memory I think I used the following:
Strings - Miroslav (old akai version) and Ultimate Strings.
Brass - AO (bad, gotta find an alternative)
Woodwinds - Miroslav
Percussion - AO (really bad, I need to get Ultimate Percussion)
Choir - Symphony of Voices
Jeez - Y\'all are really a bunch of Pros. I\'m truly humbled - for a rough cut, it\'s pretty impressive, at least to me. Maybe if I hang around long enough, I\'ll learn how to make the stuff I do sound as good!
I think the voices were the Soloists Multisamples on SOV (Soprano and Tenor)
I don\'t think I did anything with the samples, just used them as they came. There wasn\'t much time to tweak anything outside of the sequencer because the whole thing was done as a quickie to get an idea of the direction the orchestration should take.
Sorry Dis, what I meant was that finally you heard something, produced with AO, SoV, Miroslav etc.. that you found convincing! You remember our little \"fight\" on the other topic? I\'m just glad you came to your senses. Still the question remains.. do you find gullivers track more convincing as an orchestral simulation than your GM1&GM2.mp3\'s?
Thomas: Yes I remeber. Maybe the question remains. This piece \"sample\" I\'ve liked yet sooner, but it is rather an exception. This track sounds great, but it sounds like there was mastering and some very good reverb. If you load AO, SOV or US into Gigastudio and add SBLive or Gstudio NFX Reverb, it sounds about 80% weaker than sounds in this track.
Sure GM1 was not the best example, but I have now some more info... but it would be for a new topic. One of the things I can say sure is that the most realistic sectioned strings come from some E-mu native original libraries, but as I told it doesn\'t belong here.
Still about choir - in sample.mp3 the first short pathetic loud choir must be real or what - no SOV patch sounds like this. But the second - they\'re SOV, it can be recognized.
Gulliver: Thank you for the info. Still may I ask what reverb unit did you use? Thank you.
