Soundsonline music contest runner up.

Posted on July 9, 2007 at 1:20pm 6 Comments

my composition for the short CG animation film by Zennor Alexander titled 'Grey's Elegy' was a runner up in the Soundsonline May/June music contest as voted for by the Sounds-online team and the movies creater.

As a prize I get to pick one of their new Play sample Libraries!

Nice work! I listened to Bottom Feeders and Point of Return. What sample did you use for that deep bass thud in P of R? ...Beautiful recordings with excellent tonal balance.

Hi Rami,
I've never used PC's with sample libraries only Mac so I know very little about them sorry,if you check out Platinum pro XP at soundonline they usually give the specs required for PC's
3-4 Gb RAM would be better also Kontakt 2 is vastly superior to kompakt re CPU/RAM usage,and you will definitely need a very fast External drive.
The soundsonline forum is full of info,theres a guy there called LEX whos a total wiz with tech stuff if you joined and PM'd him,he'll help you out.
