Hello hello. Just registered here to finally get guidance on something Ive always wanted to do. What good equipment or programs are out there under $700.00 that can produce good strings, symphony, orchestra sounds? I mainly play guitar (8 years), but Ive always loved the ambient symphonic (real word?) stuff. Influences include: Cliff Martinez (Solaris) Mark Isham (Crash) Gabriel Yared (City of Angels, Possession, Cold Mountain) Yoko Kanno this kind of style. Thanks for any and all help!
