Rob Burnley replied to Timothy Smith's discussion Great Mid Level Composition Libraries For The Budding Composer
"Oh no you lose the lot haha, that's why it's not very popular I think and rightly so. I started a subscription with the view of trying the libriaries and buying the ones I actually used - then not needing the sub anymore. It allowed me to…"

"I'm surprised nobody has mentioned EastWest yet, I pay £13 a month and you get every single sound pack and all the new releases as they arrive. I know lots of people are not fans of the subscription model for software so there's…"

"Well, that's really very interesting! Being a complete ignoramus when it comes to video games (playing them as well as the inconceivable process, to me, of creating them), this is amazing. It is very alluring, and does indeed beckon the viewer…"

Woodwind Village - Music for a game demo

Hi guys, I posted a demo here a while ago and though you might be interested in the finished version.Woodwind Village is my first game prototype built entirely myself using blueprints and Unreal Marketplace assets. The game will be available to play online and this is a play through covering most of the material available in the demo. The village is a happy place filled with some lovable, pop culture rich woodland sprites who are always happy to meet new strangers in town, just don’t mention…See More

Rob Burnley replied to Krsto's discussion Mastering
"I graduated last year in Music Production so I'd love to hear something and help you out if possible. I've found that most tutorials/online courses cover mixing pop (drums, guitars, vocals) and don't really cover classical music. This…"

Rob Burnley replied to Lucas Oliveira Krumenaur's discussion Help on counterpoint
"why don't you start with two part counterpoint and try turning this into a canon and seeing where the first melody can be repeated. There are rules to counterpoint using intervals and so on but it's still possible to create a contrapuntal…"

"Hi Gav, thanks for listening. Yeah, I wanted to avoid obvious strong cadence points so it can sit in the background with forest noises and dialogue without overpowering."

Gav Brown replied to Rob Burnley's discussion Woodwind Village - Music for a game demo
"Hi Rob, This seems to me just about perfect for your purpose. The music certainly fits your description, is charming, and appropriately composed to fit in with visuals without dominating the experience - I can hear you laying back on the volume and…"

Woodwind Village - Music for a game demo

Hi guys, I'm hoping for some feedback on my latest piece.It's the music for a game demo I'm preparing as a portfolio piece and consists of 2 Flutes, English Horn, Bassoon, Cello and Marimba. There are day and night sections that had to be the same lengths and I wanted the mood to contrast appropriately for each. (Night section starts at 2:19)The game environment is a woodland forest with a small rustic village with a windmill. The environment will be populated with Dwarf characters hanging out,…See More

Rob Burnley replied to Luke Stephen Gray's discussion Exporting Notation Midi Files Directly Into DAW
"Yeah cool, fair points just didn't want anyone getting scared off by potential equipment costs, I love my little H6 haha. I might have to multi-track some of my pieces soon, so I'm definitely game to try it!"

Rob Burnley replied to Luke Stephen Gray's discussion Exporting Notation Midi Files Directly Into DAW
"There are musicians everywhere - unless you are in a remote area of course. But then there are online options, together with multi-tracking and layering."

Rob Burnley replied to Luke Stephen Gray's discussion Exporting Notation Midi Files Directly Into DAW
"I'm generalising there, and it does take the recording knowledge and experience but it's still possible to get great results from a handheld recorder that don't cost too much. I've had great results using a Zoom H6 but I have…"

Rob Burnley replied to Luke Stephen Gray's discussion Exporting Notation Midi Files Directly Into DAW
"Hi I'm a little late to the conversation but thought I'd add my advice too. This is totally valid but time consuming. You still have complete control over dynamics and with a good set of sound samples you can get a pretty good result. I…"
