Reload the page and try again. You may need to clear your browser cache, but either way, there are currently 3 randomly provided links. If one doesn't work, reload the page and try again, but now all 3 should work.

Great work, thanks.

Are you going to include a piano sometime in future releases?

Thanks again.

I use 8dio strings...I use GPO samples...I use (really excellent) strings and brass samples from Jasper Blunk...and they're all easily matched by VPO...the man has done a masterful job and if you have any interest in Orchestral composing, this is the first place I'd look.

Thanks for the update...much appreciated!

No. A piano can be a large sample library or VSTI all by itself. Free piano VSTIs or sample libraries seem easy to find and I figured most would rather choose their own piano.

Any particular free piano you personally like for orchestral work, Paul?

In general I like the Piano in 162 though it does lack release samples.

I'm between pianos at the moment. A while ago I made note of one that sounded better that what I'd been using but I haven't had a chance to play with it much yet and I have to find where it was that I saved the link to it!

Thanks. As for the web site design, I started with a free Wordpress template then styled it and added some extra functions to suit my needs. I used to do that sort of thing professionally.

Once I have a collection of demos, I'd like to create a page to show off how different composers have used the library so sure when you've composed something with it, let me know.

I love the Ivy Audio piano for orchestral, another great freebie. Big one though, adds a lot to project load times that's for sure.
