Thanks for the reply, I’m very tempted for the artist version as I can’t afford the pro.

My latest Orb Composer video shows a play-through of a classical cue with many instruments and different articulations.

Watch it here: YouTube

Seems like this one is dead. Hope I'm wrong...

Latest version was released not long ago. Now up to Ver 1.4.1

I am starting to question the whole artificial intelligence angle of the product.

I have the Pro version.

When creating blocks such as intros, themes, endings, theme changes and so on the software just completely ignores the context of the previous block.

There's a lot of hype about the AI but not much substance.

What is the AI model used, how was it trained, how is that AI model used by the software?

I can get better results out of Odesi, a non AI composition tool that costs $49 than from the Pop/Rock or Electro templates in Orb Composer Pro S.

Orchestral composition can easily become a nightmare in Orb Composer given the complexity of the settings. It's quicker and you'll get far better results composing from scratch in my opinion.

The inbuilt sound engine in Orb Composer is terrible and articulations and other such details won't translate well when moving over to a DAW.

I own Orb Composer Pro S, I bought Orb Composer very early on, before it even had a sound engine. I had high hopes for the software and it's possible workflow benefits but right now it seems to me like it's more a random happy accident machine than anything entirely useful.

Slow well thought out development pays off in the long run

I think this product should be use to assist with some ideas in creating music and not become the sole creator of it.
So far I think they are found a great job!!!

Just checking out the latest composing, songwriting aid software. I imagine they could be helpful for some people but they’re not a substitute for natural talent.

I began one composition by writing out the twelve tones three times on paper and cutting them into individual pieces. I put them I’m in a hat and mixed them up and drew out four or five of them. It wasn’t exactly the progression I used but it started the ball rolling.

Orb composer 1.5 and Toontrack products


I'm trying to use Toontrack EZdrummer 2 and EZkeys from within Orb Composer 1.5. Seems like the Midi information comes through but there is no sound coming from the VST. I'm having no problem at all with other product like arturia V collection etc.

Trying to open a ticket through Hexacords but that page seems not to be working.

Someone else with simular problems?
