Mars1's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The most expressive virtual orchestras"

Synful Orchestra
Quick and easy installation, consider installing the correct version for your 32bit or 64bit system!
I reinstalled the Synful As the evolution of my hardware (new "response code" provides a very responsive by email Synful), and lately, I use it on a Windows 7 64bit.
I waited in vain for RTAS PC version, which never happened, but now I use the vst in sonar X1 64bit without any problems.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Synful I use on my laptop (XP 32bit, 1Ghz) and on my PC (Windows 7 64-bit i860 8gb ram - 2.9GHz - RAID SSD + 5)
since I control my AKAI EWI USB NOVATION REMOTE 61SL, Yamaha C2S.

I do not remember ever having had a crash since version 2.5.2 Synful ... very stable.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it now for just over two years.

* Compared to other orchestral bank:
I searched a long time among the sample banks to simulate what a real orchestra in an "absolute". I have the library Miroslav Vitous, and have long regardardé to VSL and East West, but I was really captivated by the expressiveness of the violin. The very principle of operation of the Synful synthesis makes it a real instrument rather than a sample player "a little improved" ...

* Sound: this is where some people are certainly missed out on this wonderful orchestra!
I long to analyze and "grind" to a linear phase EQ to fill the gap at the top of the spectrum of certain instruments Synful, but now the channel sonar Pro X1 allows very fast to reach a great result, and a convolution reverb output, it was decided a band that sounds so real! Verily, go to the page "User DEMO" of Synful, and do not hesitate to compare some pieces that can also be found on the website of VSL. The realism of Synful (synthesis) of a "mega bank" sound sample should make you think! I was ready depensser 4 times the price for the best possible result, but I finally decided to Synful Orchestra.

* The work for the realism of the game and the balance of orchestral masses:
I have the best control of expressive instruments Synful with my Akai EWI USB, I use both to the winds, but also to create phrases for solo string, then I edit to make slightly more linear curve expression and bring it closer to the game with a bow.
For the expression of high orchestral masses, I use the sequencer controller curves because the very strong dynamic and expressive instruments Synful accommodates very many solos, but mixed with many desks winds requires a control much finer, a difference of 10 or 15 on the curve of expression (of 127) is able to unbalance the mix much with other instruments ... Also, to work on a full orchestration, good theoretical knowledges about the rules of harmony are necessary for orchestra! Such knowledge will avoid being in certain impasses regarding the intéligibilité certain instruments embedded in other mileux, and about the proper use of the dynamic range of a large orchestra.

I would do this choice:
Even today, I test and see all the new virtual orchestra, it is a bit frustrating to see that Synful has not changed since two years now, but I have nothing better to my ears, and my budget "upgrade" me to buy many things but nothing that can replace Synful.

Synful Orchestra
RAS, easy installation, fast and light because no samples

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

it runs on my pc AMD x2 4200 + and XP sp2 with 6 LIVE

OVERALL OPINION

For anyone looking for sounds of modern orchestras and many go your way.
it sounds like a very kitsch ... mellotron! (The ancestor of the sampler)
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mellotron

Nothing to do with the sound banks in East West, VSL or others that sound very realistic and contemporary.
Here, it is rather in his 70's / 80's.

(Re) Listen Albums AIR, they often use the sounds of mellotron mainly violins and choirs.

In fact, this software is compared to the M-TRON G MEDIA (which works based on samples)
https://en.audiofanzine.com/virtual-sound-module/gforce-software/GForce-M-Tron/

Personally, I often used to bring a touch of retro to modern components with a preference for the violin and the cello really good. Sometimes to make parts of orchestras "motown"

In short, unique for all lovers of this type of retro sounds, but definitely not for those who want to compose modern orchestral parts!
Moreover, the demos on the site look like film music of another era.

Very vintage this plug-in!

7 / 10 because too much (380 euros) but when you love ...

Synful Orchestra
The installation, no worries. One inconsistency with VST to RTAS Fxpansion. So for now unusable on Protools. RTAS version should probably get out of here a few months.

The config is generally good, although graphically it's not excellent. But this is not what is asked!
The manual is clear. Overall the software is very easy to access.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I use Synful PC: Core2Duo 1.68 GHZ, 2Gig Ram and also on Mac OSX: Powerbook G4 1gig of Ram.
Everything works fine. However the app is greedy when using the sets of instruments, style 16 first violins. Because they are calculated one by one and in real time. Can not have under my powerbook 16 first violins, 12 second violins, 10 violas, 8 cellos & 6 double basses. Under the pc no problem. Otherwise the sound is great and the next version should be even better because the team has revised the engine of the software. With more Altiverb is extra. It is imperative to use MIDI controllers to make it expressive, but after the result is. I use a lot of my work in composition, we have even heard of Thalassa!
The app is stable.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since its release. And bought on.
What I like most is that of modeling, not the sample. The sound quality will improve with new versions to come. But it's extra. Ease of use is exemplary.
The value for money is excellent.

Guillaume LANGEVIN's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Synful Orchestra
- Installation without any worries
- Configuration of soft child

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

- My config (everyone will step but it does not matter :-)): 3000 + / 1.5 G RAM/500Go of DD/E-MU1212M/Kit speaker Altec Lansing 2.1 (I know. .. it's not funny).
- The app is very light, resulting in a very good stability.

OVERALL OPINION

Well I bought it by following the previous opinions and listening to the demos. In fact I just bought the violin and viola for the rest of orchestral instrumentals I turn into banks VSL.
Ben coconut, it's worth it!
Nan straight face that VST is incredible, at least for the violin and viola. I stayed glued to what is the expression of instrumentals. It lives! Here it is, finally, a violin sound like a trumpet!

Most of Synful Orchestra:
- The size of the soft
- Ease of use
- Compatibility (tested on several sequencers and never any trouble)
- The realism of the violin!! East West and MOTU really can go to sleep next to it.

The - of Synful Orchestra:
- Apart from the violin and viola the rest of the instrument is relatively dirty it must be said. But frankly when you listen to the quality of the violin is forgiven easily.
- Bah ... that's it.

Global opinion:
This is the first soft rope that rings true, and moreover it is a prototype, Synful seems he provides a more complete version and worked. In short buy this soft eyes closed, do not download it and it costs nothing to help dévellopement a result probably great.

Synful Orchestra
No problem.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

2Ghz, 1 Gig of ram 120GB hard drive.
Yes.

OVERALL OPINION

Few days.
The sounds and the expression of the violins made EXCELLENT very realistic, small flat for brass.
However small problem tuning in 48Hz (almost 1 / 2 ton), just enough to adjust with the pitch and turn and play.

I encourage the dévellopement VSTI this, and why not apply this principle to other types of instruments ...

I once again made is really EXCELLENT.

Synful Orchestra
I tried it with a friend, he dja silent install.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The config should be an Athlon XP 2000 + 512 DDR + an EMU 0404.
Trs stable.

OVERALL OPINION

The sound of the violin is astronomical: it is serious about the sound of rubbing the bow across the strings.

Raction of the DSIR VLOC appeared on a keyboard but no ballast c'tait even when a rel happiness!

There's a long time there I have not tried a synth Frache product (more than 10 years in this year of 2005), and j'espre they are now at that level (or better ), but it's a VST compltement crazy, amazing, rve a day.

I just forgot to mention that the c'tait synthse. But this level !!!!!
