It sounds and looks cool, I impulse and get it. But then I see the price and say, whoa whoa.
But if string libraries like this are commonly at point or more, once I bite the bullet, it will probably be them. I did DL some DSK free VST's. The one that plays multiple intruments, is pretty intensive on the CPU. DSK - Overture. That actually have some neat little free stuff.
Again, not helping with your question. But I do think layering like-minded patterns together might take you where you're going without naming techniques that I know nothing about. Plus movement between layers to strike more differences.
You play a keyboard right? I seem to recall you had at least a 49key.
i have a 61 key, eventually
getting an 88 key.
orchestra libraries and composing midi orchestra in general is expensive, first it will be getting sibelius (which is actually only useful if youre interested in composing for a real orchestra), then getting VSL se, then wanting the full library, then the choirs, and its really never ending with the libraries you can get haha.
