Simple BBC SO Discover Template

Recommended Posts

BBC SO Discover Template for Cakewalk:

For those who have Cakewalk and bought or grabbed Spitfire's BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover for free, I created a simple Template to load all the instruments of the Orchestra with instrument icons, family colors, the tracks all named and separated in folders. There is no mystery. It is very basic. Just to have a starting point and not spend more than 2 hours assembling everything before starting to create music.

Note: This consumes about 5.72 gigs of RAM to load all instruments.

Note 2: If you make modifications to the template, it is better to leave the .png image next to the .cwt file when doing SAVE if you still want it to appear as a Template icon on the Cakewalk home screen.

Template BBC SO Discover para Cakewalk:

Para quem tem o Cakewalk e comprou ou pegou de graça o BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover da Spitfire, eu montei um Template simples para carregar todos os instrumentos da Orquestra com ícones de instrumentos, cores das famílias, as tracks todas nomeadas e separadas em pastas. Não tem mistério. É bem básico mesmo para ter um ponto de partida e não ficar gastando mais de 2 horas montando tudo antes de começar a criar música.

Obs: Deve consumir uns 5,72 gigas da memória RAM para carregar todos os instrumentos.

Obs 2: Se você fizer modificações no template, é melhor deixar a imagem .png junto do arquivo .cwt quando fizer o SAVE se ainda quiser ela aparecendo como ícone do Template na tela de início do Cakewalk.

Thanks to the user @Matthew Sorrels for the track icons and for the other Template ;)

Curious question though...  Why not make each instrument a "simple instrument track" and avoid having to make an audio and a midi track for each?  It would cut the template in half, and I can't see any functional limitations.

Thanks, I don't have this library but I'm going to study it and see how you've constructed an orchestral template. Very useful as a start for other orchestras as well I hope!

Use my full BBC SO template.  It works with Discover and in fact gives you more articulations, though they don't play "correctly" as part of Spitfire's compatibility thing.  So you can exchange things with say teachers/etc. 

I even stripped it down for just what's in Discover

I signed up, but still don't know what to do? It said something about filling 14 days after you completed your application. 

What Application?

"Log in (or create a new account), fill out our questionnaire, and we'll send you a FREE download after 14 days"

I clicked the free link, created an account, filled out the questionnaire, and about 2 weeks later I got the download link 😀

If mentioning an application I believe they are referring to a completed questionnaire.

Hi Patrick, thanks a lot for sharing. The download is not working any more. I'm really interested in the template, any chance you could upload it again? thanks!
