Hey, I want to buy a strings plugin.
I am not planning on writing cinematic music or classical-like pieces, I intend to use it in pop/rock/jazz genres, mainly with simple pad-like parts and sometimes a few solo parts. Also I don’t know if this is possible without switching to very expensive solutions, but if there are winds as well it’s great.
I have never used such a plugin and know very little about that. My top priority is that it sounds great, then it has to be simple enough that I can use it without going through a long and painful learning curve. And I have a $500 budget (but would be very happy to spend less if possible).
I run Reaper on a Windows 10 64 bits desktop computer, i7 @3,5GHz processor and 16 GB RAM.
Is there something for me out there? Can you help me find it?
