Advances in Realism in Sampled Orchestra Performance

May 27, 2021 2:15pm ‐ May 27, 2021 3:00pm


Ideally an orchestral score should be performed/recorded by an orchestra of musicians playing together. However, due to limitations on budget, time and perhaps global pandemic conditions, this is sometimes not possible.

The author has worked since the 90s with orchestras of sampled instruments, and has followed and lived through all of the technological changes affecting sampling, sample playback and advances in computer and musical instrument technology. Where the ultimate deliverable is a sampled orchestra performance, he has always prioritised realism in the performance.

This tutorial will showcase his work through the years, with audio examples to explain how advances in technology have translated into improvements in realism.
