Edirols Orchestral is a plugin that creates orchestral instrument sounds. For me it installed quickly and easily, I didn’t have a single problem. I am using a cheap Dell PC and there where no compatibility issues whatsoever. Once you get Orchestral open you will see how easy it is to us, with the simple tool screen you can pick your instrument and edit it to whatever you desire. I haven’t even read the manual once, and I know pretty much every feature that orchestral has to offer, it is that simple.


The computer I am using is a cheap Dell PC, running Windows XP. Orchestral works phenomenally is this setup, I have not had one problem with it, except for the fact that it really drains my CPU power, but that’s the computers fault, not Orchestral’s. The configuration is super stable, it has never caused a problem for me once, and it works great!


I have been using Edirols Orchestral for about six months now, and I love it. There are many things I like about Orchestral, such as the varity of instruments, the in-depth editing capabilities, and the amount of sounds you get for the money. However my favourite thing about Orchestral would be how easy it is to use, it is as simple as selecting an instrument and playing. The only thing I dislike about Orchestral is the Pizzicato and Staccato sounds, they have way to much Sustain to really be called these things, and unfortunately, after trying many a time, I have found there is no way to get a good Pizzicato or Staccato sound. I did not try any orchestral plugins before, however I have used synths that produce some Orchestral instrument sounds, and Edirols Orchestral beats them by a long shot. In my opinion, you will not find a better Orchestra plugin for the price, however, if you really want a great Orchestra plugin, take my advice and save up for something made by East West, because they will blow Orchestral out of the water.
