Subjectively - most authentic oboe, french horn etc samples?

Postby engrssc » Sun Oct 01, 2017 3:59 pm

Up against a competitor organ company which has very beautiful orchestral solo stops. Any suggestions for an equally good sample set?

No french horn, but it has a very nice clarinette, oboe and tuba.

Either Marc or Ed have made reference at some distant point in the past about the Skinner French Horn on Mt. Carmel. This is the only French Horn I have encountered and frankly is a voice I wish I had on several of my sample sets. Whether used as a solo voice in the tenor range or as a supplemental accompanent stop I have always been partial to it. Wish it were on the Sonus Skinner.

I love the Mt Carmel French horn. Wish the new version was in the works but I’ve pretty much given up hoping.

For sure. Unfortunately, wishing won't make it happen. :cry:

Seems the French horn is a Skinner deal and the stops in question seem to lend themselves more to an American instrument, but there's got to be something in the SP lineup that would work.

Goerlitz?

The issue (and there always is an issue) the main organist played the newest high end Rodgers and she fell in love with the oboe and French horn. And I have to admit, it really is a beautiful stop. There are some(symphonic) orchestral VST programs that come very close.

Is this a new install someone is considering and they're weighing the options of Hauptwerk vs. Rogers? Yes there are always issues, but if I'm safe in assuming this is for a church, cost is ALWAYS an issue and is likely to end up being the #1 issue.

It's always big talk at first, but when the reality sets in, suddenly that oboe ain't so important afterall. :wink:

It's an existing H/W installation. True, cost is one issue when dealing with churches, but worse, are the people problems (committees, etc).. There's more than enough ego's out their to sink the ship. The "feedback" usually has words such as 'And I thought you said Hauptwerk could do everything'. That's their version (a paraphrase) of what I really said.

But a bucket of extra voices would be nice to have as an easy add-on to otherwise great sample sets.

One of the composite Silver Octopus sets has a Solo French Horn though it's not specified from which organ it was sampled. Howerer many Silver Octopus stops were apparently from the Willis at St George's Hall Liverpool and if the French Horn is from that organ it would be worth looking at on those grounds alone.
