The Sonatina Orchestra Module is a complete orchestral instruments rompler.

There are 20 instruments and over 50 articulations including a soloist for every major instrument except the Viola and Double Bass. There are sections for all the important instruments including the Viola and Double Bass. Articulations include Pizzicato for the string sections and Staccato for the strings, brass and flute sections. There is also plenty of percussion along with a piano, harp and choir.

Not bad, definitely had it crash my REAPER file at least once. The timbre is good, but the range on the cello is incorrect, the cello can go down to C2 and this one bottoms out at A2. Really frustrating when you want a G#2/Ab2 and it simply doesn't play anything.

I try opening this in Reaper, but the virtual keyboard image does not show up. The plugin shows up in Reaper (VSTi) but no sound can be made by my midi keyboard controller. How can I fix this?

The brass is the best part of this plugin imo. It's clean and sounds far more realistic than many other vsts, and I will be using it regularly. Awesome job! Sadly I'm docking a star because the string section is very unrealistic and unpleasant to me. Spitfire LABS does that job much, much better. Overall great plugin, like I said I'll be using this regularly. :) Have a great day!

I used this in my song, and sounds great, definitely one of the best violin plugins for a broke guy like me. Cello and Violin sounds awesome, however the violin sometimes sounds out of tune when I play it in higher octave

Really liked it when I used it a while ago. I have other plugins I would use with it now to give it more fullness, like and eq to give it a little more heaviness in sound. It is also great if you have a looper, create a loop and you can keep adding different sounds to it. very fun, just pan a sound to the right, pan a sound to the left one in the middle, it really starts to sound good fast.

If you are in windows, you download the 64 bit, then move to selected folder, move it to program files, then move that to vst plugins folder and it should be in your system. You probably need to run a check on your daw for it to show up. That's what I do with Ableton

Maize has a slightly odd file structure. You need the Sonatina Orchestra.dll in your base VST directory and a folder called Sonatina Orchestra.instruments which will contain a couple dozen mse files. Usually the VST can't find the mse files when this error occurs. The zip files are created to have the correct file structure. Note I'm assuming you are talking Windows here.

Nice sounds. (Using in Cakewalk 64 bit). But why do all the piano notes play an octave lower than normal? E.g. when I press C4, I hear C3. The workaround, playing an octave too high, produces the pitches I want, but the staff displays them in the upper register. Very disconcerting and hard to read the notation. Is there a way to fix this?

Came highly recommended, but I also am coming across the problem of the VST working, but unable to find instruments. I'm using Cakewalk on Windows 10 (64), downloaded the correct version, and have it in its own folder with the .dll file and the .mse file folder (Sonatina Orchestra.instruments) together in the base VST folder for cakewalk. I have tried many common file destinations that my other plugins use, can always open VST, but never find instruments. Was it just not meant to be, or am I overlooking a simple step that will lead to a much deserved face palm? I truly don't know what I'm doing! Eek!

Works flawlessly for me in LMMS: I simply extracted the whole folder into my VstPlugins folder (so there is a folder called "Sonatina_orchestra_Module_-_64" there, in which the dll as well as the .instruments folder is.

Muito bom! Tem sons incríveis! A única coisa que faltou, embora seja o rompler sensacional, foi que se for necessário usar uma nota sustentada por muito tempo, o som se silencia após uma certa quantidade de segundos. Fora isso, super recomendo!

I'm in love with this VST, it's just beautiful. I love how it sounds. Although I have a problem and I have no idea how to address it. When using the Violins, Cellos, Violas, and other stringed instruments, sometimes it just goes staccato even if I set it to sustain, how do I fix it? Any help is welcome :)

This is the best free vst, and not because it is the highest quality audio, the sounds are fair but lack something that is hard for me to describe and is easier to adjust myself with audio effects. The reason I think this is the best VST is because I can run 5-10 different instruments at the same time without my CPU screaming at me to tone it down a little.

Ian Calvert May 25 2020

I'm using this in Reaper and like it very much - good sounds and straightforward to apply. But there is a problem in that all the string instruments fail to sound the lowest 7 semitones that are available on a real instrument - for instance, B3 down to G3 on a violin. Is there a way around this please?
Ian Calvert May 30 2020
May 30 2020
The answer has emerged - and in case anyone else has the same experience, here it is. It turns out that when I play notes on my Yamaha MIDI keyboard, Reaper records them one octave lower. It may well be possible to correct this within Reaper, but it's easier to simply play one octave higher on the kb. Then, SSO actually provides ranges that go below those of the real instruments.

Dev said this rompler won't work with reaper. Sure it's fine?
davemguru12 Jun 23 2021
Jun 23 2021
Several DAW and plug-in developers use the MIDI name range C-2 to G8. Reaper's default is C-1 to G9, so altering the octave name display offset to -1 will give you names in the range C-2 to G8. I have read that all was "normal" in the music world until Roland and others invented a new naming "standard". However, go to "MIDI octave name display offset" in Preferences > Media > MIDI. Set the value to -1 and it should match.

Hi Andrei,I think the Win32 should work for you, probably your problem is not in the plugin but in Sonar, I dont use this program, but probably there is a way to make if recognize your plugin, try searching for it on youtube, something like: how to add a vst plugin to Sonar.

Hi there. Make sure the Folder and dll are of the same name. You might want to ensure there are no spaces in the names also. Some software doesn't recognise the space character in file names. Hope this helps.
