Hi all,

I was wondering what plug-ins would you consider interesting or industry standard to play as MIDI when scoring films with strings. I might use them at some point but my budget is pretty tight!



  • Excellent. I'll try them (synful has a demo trial) and post up the results. Cheers Marco – Marco Saez Jan 29 '11 at 12:04

Not sure how it works as a plug-in, but I know that most of the short films I mix are scored with Hollywood Strings and LA Strings. That seems to be the standard where I am.

  • Heard a ton of great reviews on this plug-in! – C3Sound Jan 29 '11 at 5:47

I know a few composers who swear by the Vienna Strings libraries - quite expensive but comprehensive...


  • +1 I've worked with Vienna Strings and they sound great. – Auddity Dec 20 '11 at 18:25

Synful Orchestra is a great piece of kit! http://www.synful.com/ recommend it. Might be a bit expensive if you're on a tight budget as you say.
