Others are right, it crashes alot. Can't export it. Some great sounds but isn't worth the unreliability.

It's usable, although most of the instruments sound very fake, particularly the 'Brass Section', which sounds more like a pipe organ. It could be used, in some instances, layered under more realistic sounds to achieve some embellishment.

This is still as good now as it was back in 2009. Some of the instruments sound so real (especially the solo String sounds and the Brass instruments). There are plenty of other freeware VSTs to fix anything that Virtuoso lacks, or for a small donation you can get a premium quality DSK soundfont!

This is a great VST, but I would make two suggestions to make this super useable: Please add response to a modulation wheel, and also please allow setting a detune amount to each layer. This way, you could stack multiple layers for a really "fat" sound.

The quality is great, but I have this weird issue where the plugin isn't playing after the song is exported, and all of the patterns where I used the plugin in the editor reset (all of the instruments are deleted, and no sound is played).

This collects the famous sample which is rolling in the world. Not original, and quality is common.

Getting the same problem as Telfordfox. It detects it in ableton. When I open I get about 20 problem windows about converters not found and then crash. I have windows 7 64 bit and just downloaded and extracted the dll to my vst plugin folder. Can someone help ????? Really want to try this out.

This Vst is awesome, Im using it on fl 10 and those sounds are great and realistic, nice job! The strings are perfect but the pianos like grand and E could be a little deeper and more "base".

Doesn't play half the notes I put down.

It's because it's based off of the instrument's range in real life so you can't go too high of a note or too low for certain things.

When i open 3rd instance of this plugin, it stops working. Screw it.

Try and install more than one; Virtuoso 1 , 2 , 3 etc; it might help when opening more than one.

Very good for the solo instruments I agree. Some of the presets are also good on the lower end. KEEPER!

Can't get it going with Sibelius First v6 - it's detected, but when you try to activate, it complains it can't find converters.sem then the whole thing crashes.

The Solo instruments sound increadiby real, especially instruments like the Cello, Violin. The brass instruments are also very superior as are the woodwind instruments, it even sounds very convincing. It also comes with a usefull Trap Set (Drums and percussions). It's a really nice instrument when it works.

I have some problems with it, I work on FL 9, and when I use more than four samplers of DSK it crashes. Anyone have some tips?

Solo instruments sounding great. Realistic and warm - if you don't use the crappy FX. Usually presets should be useful and showcase. These are neither nor. But that doesn't matter, cause Virtuoso is easy to handle and you can create stunning orchestral ensembles in some moments - for free. I'm pretty sure that I'll use that one very often in future. Good job!

This is a great sounding VST, but it crashes my projects in Cubase AI4. Great sounds but a little tricky for my projects.

I give it A 5/5 just what I was looking for, very analog and realistic at the same time, very good control and quality. Narrator must not know how to sound design and probably upset cause of the presets o well there ok I don't use them....

It's one of the best vsti's i know that are free. The delay and chorus effects aren't brilliant, but it doesn't matter as you can always run it through something else. The way it uses different instruments on different midi is fantastic.

Crashes in FL9 when using multithread processing. Good apart from that.

Best there is. Use it with DSK Strings for best results.If you're using it with Ableton Live,you'll have to remember to re-select your instrument of choice when you open it in a Live-set(default is 'none').

This is a really nice VST - the strings are warm and realistic, exactly what I was looking for and couldn't find anywhere.
