Try Spitfire BBC Orchestra Discover Edition. Click on “Or Free” link. Fill in the questionnaire on their site so it will be free, but you’ll wait two weeks to receive the download link. Or, if you cannot wait, you pay 49 USD and get it now. I believe this is their strategy for people that cannot wait
The instruments are really good, not all the articulations, but a lot of quality instruments. And there are also BBCO Templates for many DAWs (Ableton, Loogic, Protools, Cubase, Reaper…) that you can use in your DAW.
thanks but my problem is the match between the Scaler’s keyboard and the plugin’s one and can be only overcame if the plugin’s keyboard keys can be moved left/right, something that cannot be done in VSCO
AFAIK Spitfire BBC Orchestra templates serve to link the plugin to Ableton, but this doesn’t fix my issue
You just need Scaler notes played within that range. I can’t see that range on your pic but have you tried the ‘Grouping Range’ settings in Voice Grouping. That is exactly what they are for. Or just adjust the chords in section C to fit that area. I regularly use Scaler to trigger instruments with restricted ranges, there are several options within scaler to do so.
I think I tried what you suggest, but maybe I did something wrong
so far I was rarely able to use the VSCOs, even because the usable keys of those instruments are all different, and Scaler expressions, phrases etc chord play often notes that trigger articulation randomly
and not only I appreciate how well sound all those 35 instruments
but even the small footprint of that plugin: I composed a small piece of classical-style music to test it, and I found that 3 Scaler and 5 BBC instances suck just 900 MB
I just discovered that you followed me on SoundCloud Thanks for this.
I set free more formerly private songs in classical style. All of them use Scaler as the main tool and also BBCO Discover, some of them also other Spitfire libraries. Please find below two examples I like very much.Most of the songs use Scaler’s Performances.
