I agree with William totally. VSL is capable NOW of producing realistic orchestral performances (but I think you have to pick pieces that suit it best) - emulating an orchestra with a computer is a terrifically complex task - VSL succeeds with this, so this enables a new breed of talented musicians to emerge - 'Orchestra performer/programmer'  to give it a crude title-- Jay Bacal is one of the pioneers - but he wouild not have bothered to have done it unless he knew the tools were available/capable to do it.

I think Jay with the Rite of Spring has set a benchmark - but there are equally realistic mock-ups by other 'performer/programmers' on the demo page - just not with the length and complexity of Jay's work.

Can someone help me here please? I wish to study Jays "Rite of Spring" Mock-up (particularly part 2) and am wondering what I would need to do this? Is it the Cube that I need? And for the life of me I can not figure out how to load the performance files into Vienna Player. I am assuming the tutorial is for study but am unsure of procedure or which parts of the library one needs to own to listen to it? I also bought the Dover edition (full score) yummy!!! And wish to follow it along with the mock-up. If no ones ever bought the dover edition I highly recommend it!!! Lots of inside information on what was going on inside Stravinsky's head. Thanks in advance, Bill

What an achievement! It's brilliance is evidenced by the fact that you don't hear the programming. 

And what an amazing way to totally imprint a masterpiece in your brain permanently. It must have been a roller-coaster.

Please take this the right way (I've been trying to mock the Rite up for years to nowhere near the same level of success..)

But is there not a wrong note in the two solo muted trumpet section near the beginning of the second part?
