Greetings. I'm working on a song in FL Studio, and it occured to me that a big tubular bell would sound incredible in this piece. The problem is, I can't find a nice big hollow ominous bell sound in FL Studio that works for any decent range or pitches. (For an example of the "bell" sound I'm looking for, think back to Sephiroth's Theme from FF7. That bell is chilling.) Is there a widely available tubular bell sound out there I could snag? I might not even mind paying a little bit if it is part of a larger collection of good sounds. Also, while I'm at it, I'm not all to happy with the orchestral strings and such included in FL Studio... are there some better orchestral plugins out there, or perhaps someone could give me some advice on making the stuff already in FL Studio sound better? As soon as I get some better instruments for this song, I'll be posting on here for some reviews. I'm really proud of what I've got so far.

Orchestral patches included with FL Studio suck. You pretty much NEED a plugin to get a good sound out of it. While I can't recommend a plugin as I use reason 3 for my orchestral needs, I can whole-heartedly suggest you stay the HELL away from edirol orchestral, as it sounds mostly like crap.

The BEST option is gigasampler, but it is EXPENSIVE. I also don't know if it functions as a plugin.

Try the squidfont soundfont here for strings. It's obviously not plugin-quality, but it's decent. I used it until I picked up EWQL.

I noticed that there is also a "tubular bells" soundfont too; I haven't tried it personally though. If you want, I can send you a pretty decent bells soundfont that has some quality sounds over e-mail. Let me know if you want it.
