    Hey guys,
    I'm searching a really realistic sounding, dark orchestral or just orchestral library or Vst but I can't find any.

    Is there anyone who knows abot a realistic sounding orchestral library or vst?

    Like the backround Brass in this loop of MINOR2GO:

    Weather it's "dark" or not is up to how you compose the track. As for the actual sounds; If you're making a psuedo-orchestral track it's always good to have a good VST for string instruments (as wind and brass instruments are fairly easy to synthesize). And probably the best string VST i've ever come across is "Action Strings" by Native Instruments.

    I plan on getting it soon actually, it looks amazing, but a lot of work goes into Native Instruments' Software so it's not gonna be cheap. It should well and truely be worth it though.

    well, I got Action Strings and it's really great, yeah, but you can't create these awesome backround brasses with it..

    Thank you for your answer!

    If you like the sound of Minor2Go's background sound why don't you just message him and ask what he used to make it?

    Well, i dont want to be rude but that is a stupid question.
    It all depends what notes you play!
    Piano can be used for love song or horror soundtracks, so it is not all about instrument(sound).
    You have action strings and that is more than enough to archive the sound you want.
    Im no musician so this is the best i can explain.

    There is no way to create this Backround Brass with Action Strings.

    Action Strings is to make good strings, not these brass backrounds, there is no option to do it with.

    it's just for strings.

    You must be a member of the secret brotherhood of scary loop makers to achieve such a feat. One does not simply "download" darkness, one...must BE darkness.

    Do you call yourself smart now?

    I don't want any crappy free brass bullshit vsts.

    That's why I started the post.
    To ask if anyone has experience with any Vst or Library wich is realistic sounding and high quality.
    Please just don't answer the question with shitty crap noone wants to see/hear.

    When you ask for free advice, know that you get what you pay for. Don't bitch about it. Weed through it. Ignore what you don't like.

    Buy Komplete. That will solve all of your issues.

    Unless you don't know any music theory or basic mixing, you'd still be screwed.

    Listened to the loop you linked; there isn't anything particularly difficult about recreating similar sounds. The "Dark orchestral" sound that you are looking for is mostly gonna depend on how you compose/arrange your music.

    People have already replied to you in probably the best way possible regarding your questions.

    There aren't dark sounding orchestras, because it's entirely up to your composition. If you know how to compose a melody (or anything) then this shouldn't be a problem.

    Chord 1: A, F#,C#
    Chord 2: G, F, C#
    Chord 3: B, F, C#
    Chord 4: A, F#, D, B

    ^^^^ Suddenly anything with those chords sound moody and cinematic. Just ....compose?

    East west symphony orchestra looks pretty good but if you already have an orchestral vst/library... I us free ones myself. As far as dark, i love to use the harmonic minor scale for it's dark, demonic sound. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minor_scale Good to see people still want to fight over stupid stuff here :/

    TimmyDarkOne,

    That sound is everywhere, even "Edirol Orchestra" has it. Brass Section > Full Brasses > Orchestra Ensemble. Hit a low note, if you're not getting the identical sound, I'll turn to a fish..

    That instrument you're looking for is a Trombone, it's the only orchestra instrument with the dark, butt tearing epic sound..

    Enjoy..
