"Thanks, Ryan -- I'm quite jealous of the guitar work in some of your pieces.  I'm a big fan of solo acoustic, but guitars are, in general, so versatile."

"Ryan, thanks so much for the compliment! It does mean a lot to hear that from a composer such as yourself. Dramatic Love was a personal song and, although the production is a little rough, there's some real emotion there! I actually played a…"

"Hey David, The libraries I am working with say that cues that are 1:30-2 get the most placements. Of course that's just a general guideline. Many pieces are suited for your 30 sec - 1 min slots. I tend to write a variety from 30 sec to 3min…"

Hi Ryan, and thank you for taking the trouble to comment.

 

You're right, I'm going for the 'epic' sound on this but I also want to create a more delicate and romantic score soon.

I'm really just getting to grips with the EastWest Symphonic Orchestra (Platinum) library.

 

P.S. just had a quick listen to your stuff and it sounds fantastic. The separation and clarity is something I've yet to master.

Mine sounds congested to me at the moment.  Lots of learning to do.

 

Julian
