ProjectSAM Orchestral Essentials at a Glance:
Best of the best
For Orchestral Essentials, ProjectSAM carefully selected just the right elements from each of their products, including the renowned Symphobia series, True Strike series, and Orchestral Brass Classic, and packaged them into an incredibly versatile, knockout package. Orchestral Essentials even includes exclusive instruments not found in any other ProjectSAM products!
Orchestral Essentials sounds great. Brass, strings, and woodwinds were sampled in sections to capture the organic sound of orchestral instruments in a concert hall. ProjectSAM records various orchestrations (e.g., horns and trombones) to achieve the richness you hear in the samples. The results - well, they speak for themselves!
You're in good company with ProjectSAM
Orchestral Essentials comes from a company known for their natural, rich-sounding virtual instruments and painstaking attention to detail. Top film composers such as Carter Burwell and Patrick Doyle rely on ProjectSAM libraries as integral components of their work.

Expression = CC11
by Bob Collins from CaliforniaSince this is a Kontakt instrument, all you need to do is assign CC11 to the volume of each instrument and there's your expression setting. Indeed, all of these patches are very much "in your face", b... read more [+]ut not only is this a cheaper alternative to Symphobia, but sometimes we need these blatantly cinematic sounds to get people to shut up and listen. close [-]

by Siebert fromI've been using ProjectSAM Orchestral Essentials for a few weeks and it's great. It's very easy to use and has a number of features I've grown quite fond of. The samples are fantastic to begin with. E... read more [+]verything sounds huge and it makes a great compliment to any existing sound library. One of the nice features is a "round robin" setting, which plays each repeating note slightly different. This helps avoid the robotic effect you get with quickly repeating notes on a sample. Another good thing is the EQ settings that are unique for each instrument, which really helps clear things up when the mix starts sounding muddy. This is a well priced sample library because every instrument is great, there are no duds. My only complaint is that I wish there were more instruments, but that's what the Symphobia packages are for. close [-]

Music Background: Television Composer
The sounds are okay, but the lack of dynamic control makes them sound thin and unrealistic no matter what. It does not respond to expression data (controller #11) so it is not possible to even use it to enhance my existing string tracks from EWQL Orchestra without performing surgery on the MIDI tracks to convert controller data to volume date, which presents problems in mixing later on.
There is a switch between velocity and modulation response. Why do I have to choose? Most sounds from sample libraries can respond to both at the same time? Why can't OE?
I'm not sure if I'll completely write off ProjectSam. The Symphobia and True Strike series are highly acclaimed. I think they are all overpriced, but compared to other sampled orchestra packages, this one is only worth about $80... if that much.
MOTU Symphonic Orchestra is a much more useful package, and it costs less. close [-]
