First Look: Epic Orchestra 2. 0 by Vienna Symphonic Library

by

Though pitched as a “bonus” for VEP 7, the Epic Orchestra 2 is loaded with amazing sounding patches and is a great introduction to the Synchron Player line of libraries. You might be able to get away with just EO2 to create some great sounding orchestral tracks, but more than likely, this collection will have you tempted to invest more into the world of Vienna’s new Synchron line.
