    Hello friends, i'm new here and i have a question or maybe two :d
    What vst-s do you recommand for instrument sounds such as strings or piano and other ones?
    What about vst-s for some clear drum sounds?
    I'll start creating some liquid dnb and dunno what vst-s should i choose that have these orchestral sounds that have a clear and nice sound.

    Thanks :)

    I use Miroslav Philharmonik for my orchestral sounds. It's a pretty good rompler for strings and such. But you need to master it so your orchestral sounds are convincing.

    For drums I use samples only, so I can't say any good VST.

    Do you have any suggestions for good free/cheap orchestral sounds I could use too, without sacrificing quality?

    I really can't say, as I went straight for Philharmonik. But you can search KVR forums and see if there's something worth there.

    Piano one and orchestral strings one are worth a shout out

    For strings and piano you should get Kontakt, its a free sample player for use with KONTAKT-based sample libraries.

    Here is a list of free sample libraries (the one with k can run with Kontakt)

    If you are searching for a good piano sound:
    I recently bought Addictive Keys Studio Grand.
    It has:
    - a great sound.
    - some good presets
    - it's just a few GB on your harddrive
    - you can change the mic postion, add effects, eq et.
    - Easy to use!

    And it isn't to much of a cost (79euro)

    If you want to here it in a track here is a track of mine where i used the Studio Grand:

    Cheers!
