This is simply amazing. I just started working with FL Studio. And I am simply amazed by the beauty of this plugin. Wow. I can't stop playing with is...send chords through the sequenzers. I am in love. Thanks soooo much for this aweseome tool.

I am using window 10 fl studio20. After downloading and decompressed VSCO2 community (VST) I placed both the mse and dll under the "preset>plugin database >installed> generator> VST". The scan in the plugin manager seems successful. Both files now become one "VSCO2 Orchestra.vst" But when I add the instrument, the sentence pops up saying "The plugin VSCO2 Orchestra is missing. Please make sure it was installed correctly." How can I fix it? Thanks!

If you're using this with Ableton (or any possibly any other DAW) on macOS Catalina here's the steps I used to get it working. 1. Add the AU Component to "/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/" 2. Restart macOS 3. Open Ableton and Rescan Plug-Ins 4. Drop plug-in into a MIDI channel 5. You'll get a dialog complaining about developer verification, click Cancel 6. Open System Preferences > Security & Privacy 7. Click Allow Anyway 8. Repeat step 4 9. Click Open In my case restarting Ableton wasn't enough I had to restart macOS or I can't find the plug-in in Ableton. For some reason this seems to be the case with any plug-in from bigcat that I've tested.

I have the folder saved for FL studio 20 in this file path: local disk (C:)/ program files/ image-line/ fl studio 20/ plugins/ fruity/ effects/ sketching orchestra and in that folder I have the instruments folder and the dll file. fl says that it cannot be found and won't come up in searches for more plugins.

By default FL studio only looks in certain folders for newly installed vst’s. This video will show you where to put them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbiz-rz_WOM

FL Studio also lets you specify a user-set folder for additional plugins. That's where I keep my plugins because I want to preserve them on a separate hard drive (along with all my other data) in case I format my computer. It's also convenient to see and organize them in your own custom place. I don't know how it's done in FL-20 but FL-12, just go to Options > File Settings > Plugins > VST plugins extra search folder. After setting it, press Refresh Plugin List. Enjoy!

I use this plenty and it really does all I need it to. Brass, woodwinds, strings, regardless. I genuinely think this is great. I wrote a few songs on it, I hope people give it a try. Reverb really lacks on most demos but if you know how to play with it and other controls and/or filters then this is actually kind of perfect! The spiccato really works well with good reverb.

Hello, I am having problems with loading the .dll and .mse files in my REAPER DAW. I have downloaded and extracted all the Orchestra zip files. However, when I extracted the .zip files I only see .dll and .mse files. I do not see any instrument (.ins) files. I assumed the .mse files needed to be put into their respective .dll file folders, which I did (for example, Horns .mse goes into the Horns .dll file folder). I then copied and loaded the folder containing the .dll and .mse files into REAPER’s VST folder ( C:Program FilesVstplugins ). I then opened REAPER, scanned for new FX’s (which it found the Horns) and then tried to open a virtual track. I picked the Horns folder and then I get a message, "Cannot find any instruments". I have tried different paths that REAPER looks in to but with no luck. I still get the “Cannot find any instruments” message. I’m running Windows 7 Professional, 64 Bit. Please help. Thank you.

The .mse does not go next to the .dll file! It MUST remain inside the .instruments folder. As mentioned in several other replies before, 'Cannot find any instruments' will show up if the .instruments folder is not kept with the .dll, or if the .mse file is removed or missing from the .instruments folder. To install correctly, extract the file(s), then copy the .dll file AND the .instruments folder TOGETHER into the desired install location.

Hello, thank you for this download. I downloaded the AU version for Mac. I'm running OS 10.15.3 (Catalina). I restarted the computer and Garageband is finding the plug-in, no problem. But when I try to load it, the app tells me that it can't verify the developer and won't let me use it in the session. In the past, I was able to go into Settings and approve the download manually, but I don't see an option for this here. Any ideas? Thanks so much!
Versilian Studios Apr 10 2020
Apr 10 2020
As far as we're aware, Catalina won't support this or other Maize instruments going forward and there's nothing we or Bigcat can do about it from our end unless the developer of Maize Sampler can update his code and Bigcat has time to update every single one of the patches and get VST4Free and all the other mirrors to update them on their end. My recommendation is to use one of the SFZ versions, as Sforzando/ARIA are regularly updated, or one of the Kontakt versions if you have the full version of Kontakt. A directory of all the versions can be found on the Versilian Studios website.

My daughter and I were able to get it to work in Catalina by copying the AU component into Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components, exiting Garage Band and restarting the Mac. When starting Garage Band, there you get the error about macOS not being able to verify the developer. Click Cancel (not Move to Trash), then click on the Apple Menu, System Preferences, Security & Privacy, Allow Anyway. Good luck!

Make sure it's in the Libraries folder directly in MacHD, not the Library folder in your User folder. You may need to manually re-scan for plugins, or restart your system. Generally a system restart fixes things completely if you're experiencing this issue and the installation seems to be correct.

The .mse files must be left in .instruments folder, which is placed next to the .dll file. If this is not done correctly, the plugin will display an error message until you move it to the right place.

Yes it will work if you do the following: In macOS 10.14 and 10.15, when an app fails to install because it hasn’t been notarized or is from an unidentified developer, it will appear in System Preferences > Security & Privacy, under the General tab. Click Open Anyway to confirm your intent to open or install the app.

Yes it will work if you you choose: Relaunch System Preferences and go to “Security & Privacy” and the “General” tab. Then choose allow to open button under ‘Allow apps downloaded from:’ This only work if you first open the vst in your DAW.

Cubase 10 Windows 10 64. Do the .mse files need to reside in the Program Files/ Steinberg/ Cubase 10/ VST Plugins folder along with the d.ll file? That seems to be what some of the comments hintto. Can I not keep the mse files on a separate drive where i have them right now, so as not to fill up my C drive? I cannot get VCSO2 to work. When I create an instrument track with VCSO, it says "no instruments". Thanks
Versilian Studios Dec 09 2019
Dec 09 2019
Yes, the .mse must be kept inside the .instruments folder, which must reside next to the .dll file in your VST Plugins folder. When you see "no instruments", that means that you moved the .mse file to a place the .dll file can't find and need to move it back. The .dll only knows the relative path to the .mse file and that path must be exactly correct or it can't find the .mse file(s). Note that in most DAWs you can create alternative search locations for VSTi plugins in the plugin manager/preferences and thus have some plugins in a folder on a separate drive which the DAW will automatically search in addition to the location on your main OS drive.

I downloaded VSCO2 Rompler and the articulation wont change dose anyone know how to fix it?
Versilian Studios Nov 30 2019
Nov 30 2019
Use the keyswitches (yellow keys shown on the user interface below the range of the instrument) to trigger articulation changes. Each key in that range (including typically the black keys) is related to a different articulation. By entering a note in that range in your DAW, or playing/recording said note on your MIDI keyboard, you will instruct the plugin to change articulations. Unlike a simple dropdown menu to select articulations, this lets you change articulations during a piece by inserting the keyswitch notes any time before the new articulation should begin. It is recommended that you insert a keyswitch note at the start of every track to select the initial articulation you desire. You may audition the articulations by clicking the yellow keyswitch notes in the GUI, but the change will only be 'saved' to your track if you insert a note in the piano roll.

How I use this in Adobe Audition? I believe I've downloaded everything that needs to be downloaded, etc. (I'm not very computer savvy, so not really in-the-know when it comes to all of these abbreviations, etc). Any help will be highly appreciated.
Versilian Studios Nov 30 2019
Nov 30 2019
Adobe Audition is not capable of using VSTi (VST instruments) because it has no MIDI functionality. MIDI (Musical Instrument Data Interface), the 'language' through which computers and synthesizers record and communicate musical ideas, is required in order to instruct the plugin which pitches to play and all other performance parameters. You should use a DAW or Digital Audio Workstation, or a piece of notation software, to create ('sequence') musical instructions in MIDI for the sampler (VSTi plugin, in this case) to then turn into audible sound. Such examples of free DAWs include Sonar, Ardour, LMMS, etc. Think of MIDI as like notation, the DAW as like the paper on which notation is written, the sampler/VSTi plugin like a musical instrument, and the audio waveform generated by the sampler as the sound made by said musical instrument.

Versilian Studios Nov 02 2019

Pro Tools does not support VSTi or Audio Units natively. You should either use a VSTi or AU 'Bridge' plugin, such as 'VSTLord', which will let you run VSTi or AU in Pro Tools, or use the SFZ or Kontakt versions of VSCO 2 CE, which are soundware for Sforzando (free) or Kontakt ($400) respectively, both of which have versions for Pro Tools.

The 'contents' folder appears INSIDE the .vst and .component files. You need to copy the entire .vst or .component file itself into MacintoshHD:/Libraries/Audio/Plug-Ins/[VST or Components]

Absolutely gorgeous sounds. I had originally posted the message "Love the sounds, but not the crashing." Bigcat pointed out that Reaper doesn't really jive with the Rompler. Instead, if you're a Reaper user, just download the individual instruments. I replaced all the Rompler plugins with the individual instrument plugins and now my session opens up without crashing. What a relief. Thank you, and keep up the fantastic work!!

Every time I load my project in Reaper (64-bit) it crashes if I have instances of this plugin. I have to start the session with plug-ins offline, remove the plugin, and then insert it again. Not sure if there's any sort of workaround, but it's very, very inconvenient, especially with several instances of it running at once! Beautiful sounds, though.

Reaper has a non-standard vst implementation and somehow can't find anything but the fist violin group when you restart a session. The single instrument vsts, just click on bigcat instruments to see the instruments and download the ones you want one at a time, should work fine though I know that is kind of a pain.

Yes, Reaper users should download the 'individual instruments' version available both here on VST4Free and on Bigcat's Blog, as per recommendation by Bigcat. The problem is between Maize Sampler and Reaper, there is nothing Bigcat or Versilian can do to change this issue.

The VSTi is a VST2 file; make sure your version of Cubase is configured to allow the use of VST2. Additionally ensure that you are using the correct bit version- if you are using an old version of Cubase, it might still be a 32-bit program even if you are on a 64-bit operating system. Conversely, if you downloaded the 32-bit version, the 64-bit version of Cubase may have issues loading it.

I really love the sound of this plugin BUT when you use it in Renoise and save your track it causes Renoise to crash / not load when you try to reload your saved track. I basically has to do the following to salvage my track due to this plugin crashing renoise when trying to reload a saved track. 1. Load Renoise on its own (No tracks just blank) 2. Disable ALL VSTs! 3. Reload the track in renoise 4. Change the plugin from VSCO2 orchestra to something else or just remove it (warning removing it may also remove all notes or chords the plugin used) 5. Save it 6. Reload and activate VSTs again.

Truly awful. The samples are far too harsh and unpleasant, most particularly the violin section and oboe. Oboes are supposed to sound mellow and relaxing, but the VCO2 made it sound unpleasant and unusable, much like most of the other instruments. Very disappointing.

This is "almost" true, but not quite. In FL Studio, you will need to Refresh/Search for new plugins and then select it in order to use it. New plugins will show up in Green text. Tick the checkmark, exit and then select your new plugin. Also make sure the new plugin is in a folder recognized by FL. Have fun!

You need to copy the .instruments folder along with the .dll file when you move it. Without it, there's nothing for the .dll to load.

Try downloading just the instruments you want one at a time instead of using the rompler version. Just click on the bigcat instruments text to find all me stuff and sort by recently added. Some DAWs like Reaper don't like the romplers, but will work fine with the single instrument vsts. Dunno why.

Versilian Studios Jan 24 2019

If you're using any DAW except ProTools and Cubase, download the Audio Units version, extract the .zip (double-click), then copy the .component file you find inside to MacHD -> Libraries -> Audio -> Plug-Ins -> Components. Restart your system or wait a few minutes for the change to take effect, then open your DAW and it should be added as an audio units plugin. For Cubase, use the VST, and instead of 'components', place it in 'VST'. For ProTools, no useable version is available, so instead you need to use what's called a VST wrapper, like Bidule or VSTLord, to load the VST inside a RTAS plugin.

Maybe this will help? I believe you need the AU version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FL_1ACk0Qhk
Versilian Studios Jan 11 2019

Mike, plugins are not apps. Plugins are little pieces of apps that can't run by themselves, they instead need to be loaded inside an app, such as garage band or other DAWs. To make VSCO 2 CE accessible on your mac, extract the .zip file and then copy the .component file into this location on your system: MacHD -> Libraries -> Audio -> Plugins -> Audio Units. Give your system a few minutes to register it, then start up garage band. You may need to restart your computer if it doesn't show up. Refer to the garage band manual and online resources on how to use a 3rd party plugin in garage band.

I've installed the plugin and when I extracted it, the only thing that comes from it it is a .vst file. as far as I know, these are not compatible with fl studio, but I could be wrong. Am I missing anything from extracting it, because I have another extracted vst that only came with a .vst file too.

This seems like a fairly good video about installing vsts in FL Studio. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbiz-rz_WOM
Versilian Studios Jan 11 2019
Jan 11 2019
Also, just to note- .vst are VST format for Mac. Every VST file used on a Mac is in .vst format. If you instead need a .component file, download the Audio Units version. If you are instead running Windows, you need to download the Windows VST version, with the extension .dll and a .instruments folder included with it.

Hi there. Did you download the 64 bit version because you're using Windows 10? If so, that's your problem - Cubase 5 need 32 bit version - even with 64 bit operating system. Delete the 64 bit version and put the 32 bit one in your vst folder (plus the samples folder) and it should work.

Nigel Nov 06 2018

This is absolutely brilliant, and so easy to use. Thanks a million for the free plugin. Now - a heads-up for Mixcraft users (echoing similar comments below). This may make Mixcraft crash. (I have Mixcraft 8.1 64 bit Pro Studio but I suspect the same would apply to other versions). When you assign VSCO2 Orchestra as a VST instrument, you need to choose which particular sound you want it to play BEFORE you open up the VSCO2 editor eg choose Flute, Violin etc from the drop-down inside the Mixcraft instrument setup screen. If you don't do this, it always defaults to solo Violin. When you then go inside the VSCO2 editor it may let you choose another instrument from the central editing panel, but it will still tell you in Mixcraft that it is Violin, even though it may play the sound you have chosen. However, even worse, if you try to select a different instrument from the drop-down list at the very top of the VSCO2 screen (the drop-down with the black text on white background) it will almost certainly crash Mixcraft.
Nigel Nov 07 2018
Nov 07 2018
OK now I'm going to have to take all that back - it doesn't work with Mixcraft 8. The 64 bit version definitely made Mixcraft crash every time. So I tried the 32 bit version and although it didn't crash, it doesn't "remember" the VST instrument. So everytime I open the project I have to manually reassign the instruments for the whole orchestra

It's not AAX, so won't work in PT12. It is AU and VST, so if you want to use it in PT 12 you need a VST wrapper plugin to run it inside of PT12. Blue Cat Audio make some really good ones.

bigcat Oct 12 2018

It should. Studio One, Version 2, is what I use and what it got tested on in both 32 and 64 bit versions. You need the 32 VST for the 32 bit Studio One and the 64 VST for the 64 bit Studio One though.

bigcat Oct 11 2018
Oct 11 2018
Yes you need the instrument folders and the mse files that are in them. Reaper has issues with the Rompler. Try a single instrument and see if you can get that running. You should just be able to unzip the zip file into your dll directory and it will make the structure you need. I wanted to say thanks again to our host. This is a big file for free using a lot of bandwidth, more than I have. If it weren't for VST4Free this Rompler wouldn't be available for easy download.

It's a pretty good plugin, the sounds are decent and there are a few options for articulation. Surprising quality considering it's free. However, I'm running into problems with Renoise (x64). The plugin crashes my DAW whenever I duplicate the plugin or I open a project that contains it. I downloaded the 64-bit version, so I'm yet to test the 32-bit version. Due to that, I'm giving it 4 stars for now, I'll give it 5 if the 32-bit versions works fine.
Marelline Acker Oct 07 2018
Oct 07 2018
Little update: I tried the 32-bit version, and although Renoise was not crashing anymore, the plugin loading was still faulty when opening a project. However, I tried the separate single-instrument plugins and they work perfectly. So, if you're running into problems with this plugin, try downloading the individual instruments.

I don't know if this helps but NSBreaks explained how to use it with Garageband. "I have the instruments working in Garageband 10.2. I tried copying to the components folder in the MACHD/Library folder rather than the user/Library folder then I restarted my computer and the instruments simply became an option under 'AU instruments'."

After getting this one and using it for a few months, I just had to come back and track down this webpage again just to give it a smashing 5-star rating. If it wasn't for this VST, I have absolutely no idea where I would get my orchestral sounds, because except from here I haven't been able to ever find any decent free orchestral samples anywhere, except from the occasional Soundfont. This has completely changed my music forever, most definitely for the better. Thank you so much for this amazing plugin!

Did you put it in Mac HD:/Libraries/Audio/Plug-Ins/Component (or /VST for Mac VST)? If you put it in /Users/Library/ or such it may not work. Also, it typically takes a few minutes for such a large VST or AU to register in the system.
