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