Music Composers Unite!
Hi! I started recording theoretical video course about music software (DAWs, music notation, samplers, synths, effects etc.). I hope this will be useful for beginners and those who want to structure their knowledge of music technologies. I am not that good at english language, so I would be very glad for comment and criticism to take it into account in future videos!
Here is english version:
Hi and thanks for comment.
I added a third video, "Compare DAWs".
I tried to use dictionary less for this video and just talk how I could.
I feel that I used not very correct words periodically. Is this video still very usable and understandable or I should use dictionary more during recording?
I personally do not usually write orchestral music in DAW. I write it in music notation software and then import into DAW. I had best results with the following:
Music notation software: Sibelius
DAW: Cubase, Reaper
These DAWs seem to be also good for orchestral music:
- FL Studio, Samplitude
- Logic (not sure about usability of multichannel support)
Seems that these DAWs are not the best for orchestral music:
- Sonar (no multichannel colors)
- Ableton Live, Bitwig, Studio One, Motu Digital Performer, Pro tools (no multichannel tracks)
- Reason (no VST)
- Renoise (text tracker mode)
If you are not planning to use MIDI channel selection for articulations, some of the DAWs above can also be good.
I also have several video tutorials about using virtual instruments in Cubase and Reaper: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLG5rytSM-dR8wsKPHgtBI6rnWaEwH...
Thanks Alexey. These are very helpful.
