The Cinematic volume in the Orchestral Series of Sony® Sound Series™ libraries is an exciting collection of royalty-free symphonic music designed specifically to enhance visual images, evoke a sense of time and place, and underscore movement, mood, and atmosphere. A full range of symphonic instruments is presented here as flexible, interlocking components – scored and edited with the ACID® software user in mind. Complete orchestral pieces are available to provide instant soundtracks, and individual instrument loops and breakout sections invite you to create orchestral arrangements that are as simple or as sophisticated as your project requires. The Cinematic collection will provide the primary emotional connection to your visual imagery, and sounds from other libraries in the series will further expand your world of possibilities.
These libraries have been hand chosen to complement Orchestral 3: Cinematic.

Essential for Cinematic Creations - but Lacking in Versitility This was on the top of my list of loop libraries to purchase as I'm interested in creating scores and soundtracks that are cinematic in nature. This set is useful, but not as useful as one would have hoped. There are a lot of limitations. For one, there are not enough instances of single instruments playing. I would have liked for there to be a folder for each instrument, with it being played alone, in different keys at different lengths and tempos. That would have allowed for more precise fine tuning of creations. Instead this collection consists of 27 folders of what you could call musical ideas. Each folder contains bits and pieces - single instrument loops and loops of two or more instruments accompanying each other. In other words, there are a lot of loops that are already layered together. When placed together, these loops form a finished song. To recap, you can create about 20 finished songs easily from what is in the folders (not all folders have a finished song), just drag and drop. Or mix and match loops from different folders to create something a little more unique. There is also a folder of string pads. They are VERY useful as they are in the keys of A, C, D, E and G - each one being in Major, Minor, and Minor 7th. There is also a folder of percussion One-Shots, including Bass and Timpani drums, perfect for when you're attempting an epic sounding score. All in all, I find that most of the melodies are too distinctive. That wouldn't necessarily be a problem if the loops were easier to chop, or if there were more single instruments to choose from. It's up to you to isolate single sounds if you're looking to create a unique mix, which can be a challenge do to the layering as I already explained. (Tip: Look for clips with enough rest between instruments, those will be easy to chop.) Further, there is not a lot of fast paced, tense music (there is some). There also could have been more sustained horns. In conclusion, there is still a lot of potential in this library if you're creative. If you're experienced with loops/music creation in DAWs, you should be able to get a fair amount of mileage from it. The instruments are beautiful and authentic. I still rate this a must buy if you want to create scores & soundtracks. You will be able to add accents to your other songs to give them that orchestral flare. June 30, 2013

Truly realistic sounds Sony hit a home run with this set from the Orchestral series! I have all of the Orchestral series and use them regularly for soundtrack creation. This particular set is the best I've heard anywhere. I use this set more than any of the others because of its ability to fit in to any video I edit or make. May 18, 2013
