@floyd jane: You've already received a lot of good tips but here's some free orchestral libraries that might have been missed.

This one has a lot of format options, including Kontakt:
https://versilian-studios.com/vsco-community/

These two are for Kontakt:
https://alpineproject.wixsite.com/main

https://projectsam.com/libraries/the-free-orchestra/

This library has a lot of hybrid synth string/choir patchesand multis for Kontakt:

This previously commercial VST went free a short time ago (also, check out the "Sounds" tabs):
https://www.synful.com/

I would caution you against acquiring Solid State Symphony or Amadeus. They can seriously screw up your workflow---they're addictive and just too much fun.

Thanx Paj, that Alpine project and synful sounded so good I DLed them. I have found that duplicating instruments from different sound sources can add a lot of realism to an orchestra.


I just posted a selfie and all of the responses were get well soon!

Unless a Windows user has an earlier version of Kontakt, that's not going to work. Kontakt 7 no longer supports VST2, only VST3. Unfortunately, BIAB does not support VST3. If you have K6 or K5, you're good.

This is not an issue for Mac users since K7 and BIAB support AU (yes, K7 supports VST3 on the Mac but BIAB doesn't).

@Mike Halloran: Respectfully, I'm on a PC and all three run just fine in K7 (The Kontakt version of Versillian you have to use is the Blue Cat Sketch Orchestra subset). I understand that a DAW/Host can have VST version reqirements/exclusions and a Kontakt library/instrument can have a Kontakt version requirement, but I've never had a Kontakt library have a VST/VST2/VST3 requirement.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
