I am always careful before downloading these types of sound libraries. Simply because I have historically filled too many hard drives with material I never do anything with. So I have now gone a long spell without any downloads and even moved on in generation of Music machines so the old unused stuff is pretty much gone.

So to make a long story short, I did some research on this offering and concluded it was well worth it to get the free version. Let you know in 14 days.

It absolutely is well worth it. You basically get instruments from their top of the line library without some of the articulations but still quite useful. The difference is where this was recorded and it is the BBC Symphony Orchestra so it is very well done. The pro version gives you something like 20 different microphone placements for every sample and all the articulations you would ever need, but this free version is still very nice.

The quality of sound and range of instruments is nothing short of ASTOUNDING - especially considering that they are offering this for free...

The download process (using their app) is easy and simple and relatively fast.

Anyone who ever considers using orchestral instruments in a production should take advantage of this offer.
You shouldn't ever need much more...

Ditto what FJ said. I can only add, Simply BRILLIANT. The definition and new standard for a no-brainer download!

And don't miss this Reaper Template which is available.Every instrument, every articulation laid out.

I think I do. One way is to drag the midi from the inserted track and then drop it on the selected track to play in the SO. In fact you don't even have to load your midi file to a separate track, reaper will support drag and drop from a .mid file.

How do you drag and drop a midi track in Reaper? Glad you asked this question because it is a little know secret. You have to hold the Cntrl-Alt keys while you drag with your mouse. Few people know this little secret.

By the way keep on eye on the Reaper Forum, the SO is likely to get a lot of press.

Good luck.
Dan

Re BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover, I can't get the velocity to make a difference to the sound.
Whether the velocity is at 127 or 0 the volume is the same.
Is this a restriction of the free version or I am being dumb?

For example, type in chords to your song, generate a RealDrums track, record in your guitar and vocal parts. Then put on your 'arranger' hat and have some fun automatically adding RealTracks - maybe a guitar solo, or pedal steel background for the bridge."

We hope everyone enjoys using RealBand, which combines some great features from our PowerTracks Pro Audio program with the powerful accompaniment features from Band-in-a-Box®!
