  4. Do you have any recommendations for sound fonts that can be used in a Web application?

    1. The general problem with soundfonts are that they may or may not contain illegal samples and the buyable ones probably wouldn't let you use them in your own app.

      If you want something in SFZ that is free to use try VSCO2 Community Orchestra.

      These samples / instruments are CC0 / PD and you can use them for anything.

  6. hello bigcat, I want to ask you; I need strings vst for 60s-70s orchestra sound, not synth string, not disco type, i will use it for emotional -haunting slow music.

    Which one do you recommend ? Thanks.

    1. I've asked over at Scoring Central since they know more about such things than I do. Realistic strings are pretty tough in the free world.

      Karoryfer has a nice sfz Cello that I think can stand up on solos. The LDK1609 Violin is also pretty good. VSCO2 is small and fairly dry, while the Sonatina is larger and wetter. With some reverb work all these might work OK together. http://virtualplaying.com/ has mixed a lot of free stuff together with some solid consistency.

      Do you have Kontakt as that might expand your options?

      "Like a 60s/70s movie score type of sound? I don't know if there are any dedicated libraries for that kind of thing, but I think anything dry(ish) with smaller sections and lots of expressiveness (deeep vibrato) should work fine once you feed it through some heavy analog coloration to mimic the recording equipment of the era."

    3. This is what Sam (VSCO2) Gossner said...

      "All you really need to make something sound like 50's/60's film is make it either mono or super wide (they were sort of just getting into stereo and would really exaggerate it at first), then EQ it to taste to match a reference source. I used the soundtrack to 'How the West Was Won' as my inspiration when making the VSCO 2 patches and just sort of repeatedly tweaked the sample patch's EQ and stereo image settings until the sound when playing the patch was really similar to what I heard in the soundtrack. "

    5. I'm sorry I'm just not really good enough to know. Often a lot is in reverb, EQ and the like. The Kontakt factory library has some pretty good stuff, dig into the legacy stuff too and see what you find.
