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:

This is awesome!

Hi and thanks for comment.

I added a third video, "Compare DAWs".

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AjUsShgDJ0

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?

What DAW have you found best dealing with midi and composing for orchestral music?

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.
