I have decided not to post any technical on Geontime after this post. Geontime will be kept about music only, my tracks, composition mixing maybe. I’ll setup something separate for things that relate to music software I am developing.
I have contacted Versilian Studios that releases the VSCO orchestra samples as a community edition under public domain to ask if this library can be used to develop a virtual orchestra plugin.
