stompboxjon's review"get east west if you want something better"

MOTU Symphonic Instrument
MOTU Symphonic Instrument is very easy to understand and use, you wont be confused or even need to look at tutorials online nor will you need a manual to operate this vst plug in. The price of this plug in is where I think they it doesn’t sit right with me, I think it is overpriced for the quality that it provides. It does have some great patches and presets but I think East West is better in my opinion. Also, MOTU Symphonic Instrument isn’t very appealing to me just going off the look of it. The layout and interface of it really irritates me and doesn’t spark my creativity. I am a visual guy, and I love seeing the plug ins as im using them, I like the software MOTU Symphonic Instrument but I hate the interface of it. I hope they change that in the near future.


Ran this on a quad core pc with plenty ram so it ran find and I have never had an issue with it. I do not use this vst much anymore. I cant even really remember the last time that I used it because East West is so much better. This is a decent software but its overpriced and if you use East West you will see how much you are missing.


I have used this many times over the years, but I don’t use it anymore and probably never will again. Its not bad and it’s a big file when loading it into your computer. I recently purchased a new studio computer and didn’t even waste my time loading this onto it because I know I wont use it at all. it’s a good vst, but its over priced and East West is so much better for me to use and the interface is so much better.

MOTU Symphonic Instrument
Installation difficult with the sequencer Samplitude Pro. We must move dll files and other directories in the right, after installing the update the most recent ...


I have a 2500k core i5, 8 GB of ram, a SSD ...
I encounter a problem at the moment of cracking in live performance ... Unresolved for now ... However, the bank is not there for nothing!

Good overall stability!


I use it for many years. I love the convolution reverbs that made it possible to obtain a relatively natural, which can mislead in a mix.

I had never used other sound banks and for the moment, saw the value, I do not intend to change!

Installation nickel (remember to copy the second DVD msi.dat before starting the installation)
No need for manual, the plug is fairly simple to install.

I just had a problem with the latest version of Logic Pro (9.1.3) where it did not validate the plug but still usable with, as a message on every boot, the plug is not validated.


MacPro 8 core with 6GB of RAM
The plug works fine on this config.


I used it 4 or 5 years before moving to EastWest.
This is a great plug too expensive to start.
Now, if your budget allows, skip all EASTWEST

MOTU Symphonic Instrument
Installing a bit laborious for the first version I had but the update (stand alone) was much easier to install.
Use with Digital Performer, without any problems.
The manual is almost useless and very well thought out ergonomics.


At the time of purchase, I used a MacBook Pro which did not exploit the full app. Despite this, I was able to enjoy myself using a lot of track, but by placing a cross on the convolution reverb.


I have this app for several years, however, I do not use it regularly, for lack of need.

I especially like the convolution reverb (on my brand new iMac), The choirs of children, pizz, and especially the piano and guitar, really bleuffant for these two instruments.
I do not think I used all the settings to get something realistic, because you can play for each instrument on the envelope, ...

Taken at present, I find that the software is interesting.
I have no other software to compare, but I could hear a little what is done via the web ... it made me more confident about the quality of the samples.
