My 16 y.o. daughter is just getting started in composing and recording music. She's into fantasy movies, anime, video games, so the stuff she's composing is in that vein. No Telecasters for her, it's all piano and orchestral stuff. I set her up with reaper, because that's what I've been using and I know a little about it (whereas I know nothing about other recording software). Sadly, my experience with reaper has involved purely audio files, no "in the box" MIDI instruments. She's been using some DSK orchestral plugins, but Reaper keeps crashing in playback and I've heard some anecdotal reports that this specific DSK plugin crashes reaper a lot. Can anybody recommend some orchestral-type plugins that 1) are stable and 2) are not terribly expensive? She's taking this seriously and plans to compose and record a piece as her senior project next year, so I don't mind spending a little money on it, but only packages in the low hundreds are within the realm of possibility.
