The company’s sample collections have been used in movies, TV series and even games (e.g. “It Takes Two”). I was given the opportunity to review one of their latest collections, Miroire, which is a collection of baroque instrumental and choir sounds.… Read More Orchestral Tools Miroire film music plug-in review
