Guy Michelmore used the 'free'/$49 version of BBC's Spitfire to create a small orchestral score.

I learnt a ton of stuff watching this. It was 52 minutes really well spent.

Amazing what you can do when you have the talent! Me? I just continue to muddle along! Thanks for posting some encouragement. I might get there someday but until then I'm having fun.

SpitFire Audio is on fire these days shocked . They are everywhere! In fact, I bumped into Christian Henson over in another forum (more on that new forum later). He truly is promoting his vision/music in an impactful way with Spitfire Audio. Well worth the effort to keep on eye on SA and their product line.

BTW, He is going live on a presentation in two hours (11am CST today).


Edit.
This was a CLASSIC -SUPER-NERDY grin discussion of sound combined with Christian's obsession with an upright piano. I don't think I will ever listen to a piano in the same way again. If you have enough interest in this to sit still for 20 minutes I bet you will be blown away as I was.

I suspect there is not much interest in orchestral composition here in the PGM Forum. Not too much of a surprise. There is certainly a world of music outside the confines of BIAB. Over the past weeks/months I have spent more time dabbling in this area. As a result I have found a new playground to satisfy this new itch.

There is a huge audience over in this VI community. And I can't tell you how warmly I have been received. I have even bumped into a few celebrities in the music world in the past weeks in the VI forum. And spent some money in new areas to enhance my music.

I will still be around here, I am too invested in BIAB to be leaving.

Where does it stop. I looked at some of this orchestral stuff. It is interesting but it seems no matter how much one has there is never enough. I have a heap of Kontakt orchestral patches, I downloaded both the free Spitfire and many other free libraries. Then I heard the Vienna Smart Orchestra and for most things that suits me. However it is an orchestra and lacks a solo violin in my opinion so then I buy the Vienna Solo Strings Standard but then real patch I want is in the upgraded version so more money goes out. I think I have what I want now but we are talking over AU$1000 by the time I get it all in place. Maybe I would have been better off to spend a heap first go or forget the idea.

I’m lucky or not I had a bit of cash saved as I was going on my life’s holiday to Europe and saved like mad but am now really pretty much house bound.

By the way the Vienna Smart Orchestra is a really good way to go IMHO. The Big Bang Orchestra basic is free but you need an eLicense dongle. Initially I was a little put off because of the eLicense dongle thingy but they are readily available.

( I do all this not so much to create as learn more about various aspects. This really keeps me busy.)

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212
