Orchester music?

Or you could just buy something like EWQLSO Silver for a little over 100$. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites I always start free...then milk it as far as that goes. Then I'll have a much more informed idea of what I need and what I should possibly buy. For starters, grab a free soundfont player and go to Hammerhead like Sean mentioned. I use both GTG SF Synth and rgc:sfz which is nice because it handles the larger soundfonts easy by streaming it like the big samplers do. Then snag some soundfonts from Hammerhead or my new favorite for soundfonts, SF2Midi. Definitely try to find Cadenza, FreeTimeStrings, and anything with "Campbell" in the title. The guy sampled some great instruments properly and used the soundfont format well. Then after playing with all of this, decide what you like and don't like about your collection. Then find a product that compliments your needs.

Out of interest, where could you do this? I was searching and couldn't find it for less than \$199.

To the original poster: I agree with Tony above, in that you can go a long way on free samples. If you find they eventually hold you back, you can then upgrade. I find the Sinfonia soundfont useful in many cases, though it has limitations.

Get yourself a midi keyboard and Garritan Personal Orchestra, as well as Fruity Loops 6.0 Studio edition (use soundfonts). Its gonna cost you a little bit to do, but it makes its money back in due time.
