I can't believe the high marks this is getting in this day and age. This might have been worthwhile many years ago, but isn't now. The UI makes no sense and the sounds are far inferior to others you can get out there even for free. Don't bother.

It's an amazing VST ever... I used in my workstation. Just wow... No doubt, it's a best creation from DSK :)

The sound is a bit primitive for 2k21 but it closes the gap whilst you're waiting the fortnight for sp*tf*re to send you your bbc so discover XD

Greetings, Pradip! Your song was astonishing, perhaps, the ending could have been improved, but other than that, your song was delighting!

Before I was able to buy a professional orchestral library, I was using this for my video game scoring, It works just fine and the samples are good for a free software, The interface might be a bit complicated for some but you will get used to it after using it a couple of times, I would like to thank Victor for the production of these libraries, I also encourage you to check out his other free VSTs such as DSK Darkness Theory (my favorite) , DSK Tech Synth Pro, DSK Ethereal PadZ and much more at their website, If you donate $25 dollars to him via paypal than you will recieve HQ Instruments which has over 1,640 high quality instruments for just $25.

It's being a while I don't use this tool but, as far as I remember, it was a wonder to use. Too bad it only exists as a 32-bit currently, but I can only try to guess how to turn around that issue, as long as I can run it on admin mode :)

Update your DAW, New CPU, More RAM, Maybe installed 64-Bit version instead of 32-Bit...

I love this VST to death... when it works. The problem being that it only works about 25% of the time and the rest of the time it flat out doesn't work at all, either by not loading, crashing my software, or not playing notes. This is the only VST by this company that I have an issue like this with and for the life of me I could not figure out what was going on with it. To be completely fair, I know the company who made this, and all my experiences with them have been stellar. This is a good VST if you can get it to work, pretty useful if you like to do instrumental works. I'd easily give this one a four or a five star review if I could just get it to work reliably.

Samples are good, but uses too much processing power and there's glitches in the middle of samples. I don't know if this is caused by the spike in CPU this causes or it being naturally the plugin itself.

I agree. Huge cpu hog.

Totally unrealistic with poor attack. Many of the instruments sound like a pipe organ. It's as if the developer has very little knowledge of orchestral instruments.

Chu feel ya, bruh. I'm with Ianpb on this one, boyz. However, if you're into cheap, underdeveloped instruments, this one's for you. Let's all celebrate the mediocre then, shall we?
Anonymous helper May 03 2017

Or it could just be that the attack is poor because you don't know how to make an actual attack by adding the punch in your actual song making software. I wonder who's the one lacking the knowledge now :)

For a free product it's amazing, using it with amplitude can add that punch that is missing from it otherwise.

For some reason, my reaper doesn't display this VST after i clicked rescann. I can't find "DSK" or "strings" or any of that and wonder where all the downloaded data went.

Se valora porque no hay nada de orquesta gratis aunque chupa bastante CPU incluso con Asio.-

Sounds absolutely amazing but yes - it uses A LOT of CPU power... more than Amplitube on highest settings.
