I found out (okay, got notified by thanks to the Bedroom Producers Blog) that Versilian Studios released a free "community edition" available to the public for free.
It comes in 3 packages:
- The full edition contains 1952 samples featuring a variety of orchestral instruments and percussions. It also got SFZ and MKI patches, available to download separately.
- The 256 Samples version, as the mane suggests, only contains 256 of the samples for faster project management on lighter projects. But AFAIK, no patches for this one.
- The 50 Samples version is an even more hardcore version of the light 256 one.
It was professionally recorded which means the quality is there and is consistent across the instruments (unlike Sonatina, which, while being awesome in its own right, was built using free samples found on the internet and then pre-rendered with reverb). It might not have all the articulations you want (there is a paid Standard and Pro version for that), but it is definitely something to have if you want to drop some orchestral sounds into your work.
The SFZ and NKI patches should be able to be opened in DirectWave (nothing fancier than grouping the samples, etc.), so this means a FL Studio-ready, free orchestral sample. Perfect!
Lots of links to samples, VSTis, ...
