Libre Orchestra

Home

Welcome to Libre Orchestra - a collection of sampled orchestral instruments that are free cultural works. This means that they give you 4 fundamental freedoms:

  • Freedom to use the work and enjoy the benefits of using it.
  • Freedom to study the work and to apply knowledge acquired from it.
  • Freedom to make and redistribute copies, in whole or in part, of the information or expression.
  • Freedom to make changes and improvements, and to distribute derivative works.

Instruments

Check out the instruments page to see the list of included instruments and their licenses.

How to use

Currently, the orchestra is available only in SFZ format. You will need a sampler that can load SFZ files. At the time of writing, there is no libre sampler that can do this. You will need to use proprietary sampler, ask developers of libre samplers to add support for SFZ format or write it yourself.

Contributing

Currently, there are a lot of instruments missing. If you can help the project, see contributing page.
