Hey. Follow us and stuff.

Look how social we are.

 

I am Blake Robinson and this is my Synthetic Orchestra, a collection of orchestral music, covers, remixes and doodles created using synthetic or sampled instruments.

This is an extensive collection of hundreds of orchestral music, covers, remixes and doodles created using synthetic or sampled instruments. None of the music here is recorded live - it's all composed using computer software.
