We all want the best orchestral sounds. Lush and full sounding strings like we know from Hollywood. How hard we try, it is difficult (maybe even impossible) to get that sound straight out of a library. Definitely when you’re on a budget and you don’t have access to the high quality libraries. But maybe there is a way to get more close to the desired sound by using the right layering tactics. In this video I show you a couple of mine to get an awesome orchestral strings sound.

Layering for a full orchestral strings sound
In the video I show you how I created such a sound with only six layers. Four layers of strings (violins and cello) in combination with a flute and a choir patch.
Of course, we gonna have a look at the plugins, panning, balancing and eq-ing too. On the individual tracks and on the buss track. So you can get a good idea how to create such a sound with the libraries you own.
I hope you enjoyed it and that the tips and tricks that I show you, helps you in finding your awesome orchestral strings sound.
