Big Fish Audio Cinematic Orchestral Themes review



Yes, as you can see I’m finally getting back in the groove after the “makeover” I gave my lab.

Well it’s time for a long overdue plate of fish!

Got some nice orchestral loops to check out, so let’s dig right in!

What is Cinematic Orchestral Themes?


It’s a huge collection of 20 fully produced live orchestral tracks.

These were conducted/recorded with a real 70 piece orchestra…yes…a real orchestra.

The concept behind this one is aimed at film, media, and anyone that needs high quality orchestral score material.

However, you know how we do it, it doesn’t matter who it’s aimed at, if it sounds good, we can use it!

These are stereo orchestral pieces, no stems or individual parts, but for many situations that’s just fine.

Quick Specs

How does it sound?

Reel to Reel Tape RecorderThere’s a very lush cinematic feel going on here, but what I like is the variety.

They covered different themes or “feels” with each piece, you get dramatic, epic, romantic, adventure, creepy, etc.

Each piece is very full with lots of parts featuring different sections of the orchestra.

The library has strings, brass, winds, percussion, everything has it’s place and the space it was recorded in sounds great.

Many of the pieces sound like instant opening credits, epic battle scenes, or an emotional thought provoking dialogue, really authentic.

I didn’t find anything wrong with the recordings as I listened to them, they felt like they came straight from the cutting floor of blockbuster movie scoring session.

So what’s the bottom line?

This is the type of stuff I like, you’re able to get quick access to full, high quality recordings quickly and without worrying about sample clearance.

You can take this stuff as is, chop it up, or even throw some effects on it to make it sound like an old record, tape, or whatever you choose.

4andhalfsubsI give Cinematic Orchestral Themes 4.5 out of 5 subs, tons of content with plenty of variety and themes to keep you busy for a good while.

I really like the fact that they aren’t all in one style or theme, that really makes it much more useful in my opinion. If you like orchestral elements, and you want a quick way to add some to your music or project, this is definitely one to consider.

Go on over a check it out:

I don’t know how long it will be on sale, but it’s definitely a great deal!

  1. Good review. I like the setup too. The Studio. 🙂 I can see the beat you were going for. Kind of serious, telling the story, “been there done that”.

    I was looking for cinematic material for a multimedia project (to be published). This Big Fish library could add a classy touch to my work. I could play a few notes to give it a personal touch. I wouldn’t have to worry about any rights, if I buy the license from Big Fish.

    I missed the sale. 🙁 Maybe if I wait… 🙂

    Good review, good library by Big Fish!
