Come on let’s do it :
1. Arppe2600va by Glen Stegner
Based on the Richard brooks Synthedit source, the Arppe2600va is a must have, for all semi modular virtual analog lovers. Despite some bugs it has all you need : three oscillators, an ADSR generator, a LFO, a Sample & Hold Unit, a Filter, a spring reverb and many more!
If you are not familiar with the Arp 2600 you may have a look at the manual before programming some patches :
The free VST plugins archive at FLStudioMusic features a big selection of music production software tools. You find here hundreds of effect processors, such as reverbs, compressors, equalizers, filters, delays and more. But also VSTi/AU instruments such as.
This (free!) eBook by Samuel Ecoff is also a must :
The matrix on the Arppe2600va VST is less fun that “patch chord” but is very powerful and easy to use.
Bonus !! 2 Free Preset Banks for Arppe 2600 va :
here’s one by our good friend Ann :
72 incredible presets for the ARP 2600 VST!
and another preset bank by me :

2. Trans Computer Maschine by Cescato
trans Computer Maschine VST !
Unlike the Arppe2600va, this one is still developed!
Freeware / donationware, don’t hesitate to supportÂ the author.
It’s not a 1:1 Arp 2600 emulation, but it share the same basis.
And it’s good to have the value displayed for the pitch ðŸ™‚
a second ADSR is also a nice addition.
and more important, it features a sequencer, just check the “Blade runner” and “I Feel Love Donna Summer” presets ! cool
It has less modulation possibilities than the Arp 2600 / Arppe2600va but it still a powerful beast.

These are the best free realistic instrument plugins for Windows and Mac!
So, if you're looking for free virtual instruments that can be used for composing orchestral or realistic music, these 5 plugins will help you do just that.
And all but one will work on both Windows and Mac, but I do mention an alternative for the one that doesn't plus a bonus free sound library at the end.

1. Spitfire LABS
The first one I want to mention is Spitfire LABS, a great resource to get free orchestral instruments and they add a new one every month, at least that's what they say.
So hey, save the article and check back in a couple of months, they might have a new one available.
From this, you can use an array of different instruments like strings, guitar, piano, and choir that all sound great.
Each instrument allows you to control expression, dynamics, and reverb. Some even come with more control.

2. Ample Sound Cloudrum
The next instrument I'd like to highlight is Cloudrum by Ample Sound.
This one sounds pretty cool and is quite different from their regular approach to making plugins as they almost entirely stick to stringed instruments.
With this one being the only exception. Even though it's slightly out of their expertise, this one really hit the mark.
3. Sonatina Orchestra
Now if you're looking for a robust library of orchestral instruments including percussion, strings, and brass, you might really like Sonatina Orchestra.
Unfortunately, this is the one that doesn't work for Mac. But, is very similar to one that does, called VSCO2.
PT 11 and Windows 10 - once minimized I can't restore the Pro Tools window to the screen I know this is a bug that's been around for a while, I had contacted Avid about it a long time ago and they actually fixed it in one release I remember, but then broke it again with the next update. Autotune for pro tools 12. Auto-Tune Pro adds automatic key and scale detection with the new Auto-Key plugin (included with your Auto-Tune Pro purchase), a Classic Mode algorithm which brings back the celebrated “Auto-Tune 5 sound,” real-time MIDI Parameter Control, and ARA (Audio Random Access) functionality for closer integration with supported host applications.
These two plugins seem to have a lot of the same instrument samples and you can find the free download link for VSCO2 in this article.
Check it out, I also demo how it sounds in a video available on the article.
4. SSD5 FREE
If you're looking for a fully functional deluxe drum kit, SSD5 FREE has many different drums for you to use.
With this plugin, you get more control compared to just using samples such as mixing directly in the plugin.
5. Virtual Playing Orchestra
The last one is a bit of a process to get set up but it does sound good and I suggest that you at least listen to the demo I made before you decide not to give it a go.
Virtual Playing Orchestra does require you to download the wave files, sfz scripts and a separate sfz player such as sforzando made by Plogue.
And there are other orchestral libraries that have sfz format so it won’t be a waste of your time.
6. (Bonus): Taiko Drum Samples
Finally, the bonus sound library. If you're looking for some free Taiko drum samples, you can get them from this pay-what-you-want resource.
If you feel that it's worth some money, the option is there for you but you can get them for free.
In this library, you'll find some nice drum one-shots to use in your music or even sound effects.
I hope these free plugins will help you make better orchestral music or just music in general.
