My technique of virtual orchestration creates a living, breathing result. I compose a complete arrangement. Then I perform each part - line by line and voice by voice - until the entire arrangment is complete. A typical orchestra creation may involve as many as 30-40 individual tracks. The result is far different from any typical "synth strings" you've heard.
The sample libraries I use are the absolute best I've found in terms of realism and especially expression. Without dynamics and expression, the result is flat and boring. But a musical performance combined with these virtual instruments brings the score to life!
