Thanks so much for your comment. I'm glad you like my work. I thought it'd be interesting to add a techno type of riff to an orchestrated piece to convey a sort of sci-fi, other worldly feel to the Asteriod Field Theme. Its still a work in progress and will sound a lot more polished soon.
So about this Gordmyah Ruins track, I think it's completely awesome. The first thing I thought of when I heard the "tapping" rhythm of the synth strings along with the choir is the music from my favorite video games of all time: Metal Gear Solid for playstation 1. Here's a link to the track it remineded me of: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxkPbV8MgVA&feature=related
You have some great dynamic chords going on with the chior coupled with the the tapping strings and ambient noises really construct the image of a dark, vast, mysterious and dangerous place to explore. I can see it working perfectly for a tomb raider style action-adventure game as well as a film. I look forward to hearing more of your work.
Mostly I use Kontakt with different Kontakt instrument libraries. You should check out these kontakt banks, they are amazing - "Heavyocity Evolve", "Symphobia", for choirs I use "Voices Of The Apocalypse" (discontinued but perhaps you can find it on Ebay?) and "Symphony of Voices". Also for cinema drums, "True Strike", "Drums of War", "Stormdrum" and "Cinematic Toms" are excellent. There's a lot more I use! but these are the most common ones.
I do almost everything right in the computer, the only hardware I have is a Virus TI Snow. I do all my sequencing in Logic, my mixing is mostly Logic effects like EQ, compression and Reverb, plus a few other brands: Izotope Ozone, PSP Audioware Mixpack & T-racks 3.
The software synth I use mainly is Omnisphere. I have other software, but those are the one I use most often.
That's it besides my computer, some Mackie monitors and a TC Electronics Konnekt 24d Audio interface. I do a little recording and live guitar, but 90 % of the time it's just synths and samples.
Hope that helps, your track is great btw!
