I've developed a taste for classical music somewhat recently, and i was thinking of doing some compositions.
Is there a program somewhere that best simulates classical music instruments from all families (string, woodwind, brass, percussion, keyboard, everything)? Yes, i know software synthesis will never match up to the real thing, but still. I'm not looking for a software with hardware setup...strictly software, with a good interface to compose some stuff using any combination of instruments from any family i choose. It doesn't have to be freeware, something expensive that can do the job i want would also be considered.
What are your recommendations?
