It's Always Christmas at Roy's Studio

Recent upgrades to sound libraries and software mean a higher degree of flexibility and realism in my orchestral compositions. It's amazing what sounds can come out of a computer these days.  Look for new videos soon using the new toys. 100% of the music on this site was orchestrated and performed by Roy Firestone on his computer music workstation.  There were no live players used on these recordings.
