No Budget Orchestra

Sometime ago Jeff Glatt started creating the No Budget Orchestra for SFZ.He's also been adding many band instruments and all kinds of cool things. Some folks have asked if this is the same as the Sonatina and it is not the same. These samples are looped for infinite play and some were created using physical modeling software.
Jeff explained over in a post on KVR.
"The solo violin I posted (Kake) is half-modeled. I didn't like the original bow sound. It was too low-pitched and brought out too many dissonant harmonics. Via lots of noise reduction algorithms and filtering/phasing, I removed the original bow sound. Then for each sample, I modeled a new bow sound with higher noise frequencies, and more harmonics related to the fundamental pitch. I also thought the violin itself had too nasal and harsh a tone. So I also modeled a violin with more of the fundamental pitch and even harmonics. By mixing the two modeled samples with the real violin sample, I created an instrument that had the characteristics I liked of the original, but with a deeper, richer, and smoother tone.
In fact, about 1/3 of the musicians in the No Budget Orchestra ensembles aren't real. They're modeled. (The other musicians in an ensemble come from a sophisticated process of "stacking" multiple notes of the one or two solo instruments, giving the illusion of multiple musicians)."

If you click on the strings or brass headings below, you get all the instruments in that section in a single zip file.

  3. You have a comments section yet delete such comments. What an idiot you are.

    1. Well I delete spam certainly or the auto spam filter on blogger does it for me. I don't intentionally delete non-spam posts though the filter does sometimes delete some posts that aren't spam.

    2. I received notification of a comment that was posted yesterday and, like my original one, was relevant to the article, yet both that and my comment were deleted.

    3. Your comment on May 6, 2018 was according to the page I can see listed as "This comment has been removed by the author." That means the poster removed it not the admin aka me. The other comment was spam posted over a year and a half ago.

  4. I would like to inquire about the deactivation of the legato in both the brass and violin sections
