I finally gave up the battle with trying to make a full orchestra template with GPO. It’s a good sounding plugin and I’ll continue to use it, but it was designed a long time ago and requires too many instances.
I started looking for inexpensive alternatives (I just do this for fun) and was surprised to find that Vienna, known for their quality high end libraries, had a simple $200 offering. The demos sound good and I like the UI design for the vst. Apparently it’s a manual process for doing licenses so I won’t have it until tomorrow, but I’m looking forward to it. They also seem to be very Cubase friendly and their license lives happily on the Steinberg eLicenser, so that was nice.
In the meantime they also have a free Big Bang Orchestra that uses the same Synchron vst, so I used that as an opportunity to see how easy the install was. Nothing to it, came right up and looks easy to work with.
Just curious if anyone else has been using it. Seems like a nice offering for guys like me.
