Hey guys, I'm looking for a kind of string library that is reminiscent of the quality that J-RPG's in the late 90s through early 2000's had for games on the PS1/2, Dreamcast, Saturn etc. In other words, a string library that is not too realistic yet also not terribly down sampled like the SNES was. 

 

Here's some examples:

 

 

 

 

 

I'm guessing these were all done on some midi device? Unfortunately I don't believe I'd have the cash to spend on old hardware sad.png, so am looking if anyone knows of any VSTs/quality soundfonts

 

Any input would be appreciated!

Depending on the DAW you're using, many of these lower quality sampled instruments come bundled with the program. For example, when I was on Sonar I could find many options to fit these needs. Same with Reason and Logic as well as Pro Tools. What program(s) are you using?

 

Thanks,

Hm, didn't even think of that! I use Ableton, and was able to find some decent j-rpg sounding strings in the Tension section. Thanks :)
