Recreating the sound of a symphony orchestra using only sequencers
and orchestral sample libraries presents a great challenge
to the contemporary composer and digital musician.
The latest sample libraries are better than ever but still require
a great deal of manipulation to convince listeners
that they are listening to the real thing.

At Kanon Digital Orchestration we will take your manuscript
/Sibelius file / .xml file / midi file etc.
and convert it into a high quality sounding orchestral / band
/ ensemble production.

At the heart of our sample libraries is the world leading Vienna Symphonic Library
and VSL's MIR - Multi Impulse Response Mixing and Reverberation software.
We also use East West Hollywood Strings; Chris Hein Horns; Real Guitars
and a range of other libraries including Bagpipes and Accordions
and a wide range of eastern and western ethnic instruments.
We can also supply backing tracks or additions to your existing tracks e.g
Orchestral Percussion
Orchestral / Chamber / Solo / Hollywood Strings
Brass / Horns etc
