Hello once again internet people.

After last year template I was suggested another great free (and open-source!) collections of orchestral samples. So I decided, why not, lets make a new template and see what we got.

As always the idea is only use free plugins.

The template is super handy to quickly test ideas and why not write whole pieces with it. Here at PointBleepStudios we will be using it for our upcoming game Super Helpful Man

For this year edition we will need:

Optionals (Not orchestral, but nice to have)

Here is a “quick” video of what you will find:

The installation is quite simple

  1. Install Plogue
  2. Download and set up a folder with the contents of the three libraries

  3. (Optional) Install the theme and additional vsts/soundfonts
  4. Set up user libraries path in sforzando plugin

  5. Fire up the template.
  6. Make awesome tracks!

Any suggestions are most welcome!

  1. Thank you so much for taking the time to make this! In the process of setting it all up right now.
    I’m a subscriber to the EastWest ComposerCloud plan and I’m currently in the process of setting up my own Reaper template for that one. However I’ve also wanted the convenience of trying out an already existing one. And I love the idea that they’re all free.
    Read about your game studio and SPEECHR!, etc. Looks very interesting all of it. I wish you all the best of luck with it!

  2. Hello! thanks so much for making this. I noticed when I got this set up, all the instrument links were broken at first and I had to re-link each track one by one. I’m on Mac so this may not be a windows issue. I’m curious if you have any insight to what I might do to prevent this. I’d like to share it with some less computer savvy composers and I doubt they’ll understand relinking the instruments. Thanks again for this.

    1. Hi! I’m no mac user, but I imagine it has something to do with filepath format.
      If you have the time to test it, you could try saving your fixed version as a template and give that to your users. they might just have to do the update file path thing.
      If it works I can add it to the post if you like! let me know!
      Good luck

      1. I’m not sure it’s a mac/windows issue. I’m on windows and I had to link almost every patch – the ones in VSCO, at least – but I’m not sure I’m doing this properly anyway… 🙂
        Nevertheless, thanks for the effort and this is really a time saver. Great job!

      2. Riiiight… I’ve just figure it out. For future reference, here it goes:

        – Make sure you install sforzando’s VST2 64bit plugin. That’s the one this template uses, not the 32bit nor the VST3 64bit.
        – Make sure you create the directories EXACTLY like shown, otherwise the paths will not work. (ie. E:\VSTi\Orchestra Template)

        After 4 or 5 attempts – I was tired of linking many instruments… – I did manage to make it work. Hooraa!!!
