Sounds

The majority of the orchestral sounds used by Blake are bespoke custom samples that have been created to suit his needs. These unique samples have been refined over many years and combined with Blake’s finesse with virtual instruments, provide a full orchestral sound that is comparable to world-class live recordings. 

Blake also uses a number of commercial sample libraries from companies such as; Performance SamplesStrezov SamplingMusical SamplingNative InstrumentsSpitfire AudioCineSamples8dio, etc.
