I’m currently looking at sample libraries. The Spitfire Symphonic Libraries look awesome. Whether they’d run well on an i5 even after upgrading to 8Gb RAM needs checking out, otherwise it may be the old story of having to upgrade the computer to get access to better sounds.
My question is…has anybody done this and have they any examples of work online. I’ve currently been very impressed by a number of composers, notably Antonguilio Frulio
(http://www.soundsonline.com/Symphonic-Orchestra) - demos - ‘Micro Quartet’
It’s hard to hear in a piece like this what are ‘performance’ samples and the programmed midi notes, but all these demos are light years ahead of what comes with Dorico (I think?)…hence the initial question?
Also, is anyone using the EastWest monthly subscription service? Do you have to pay every month or can you opt in and out?
