Matthew, I appreciate that positive feedback. Your work sounds great too. I am still learning all about mixing and producing good recordings... It's a fun journey. I'll be soon pushing myself to be prolific.
Finally, I found your music here! I´m glad I did it! Very much enjoyed, especially "Ethnic influecnes montage", which I am listening to in a loop. I like the transitions! They keep the ear "awake" :-) I especially liked the 1:45 change, very unexpected!
I also enjoyed the blend of instruments you use here, beautiful!
This is very close to travelling without moving....! Thanks for sharing, hope you´re doing good, best wishes!
Hi Matt - thanks for the comments about VSL SE. Thought you'd like to know that I've just ordered the downloads - should be able to install them tomorrow evening, in between everything else I have going on - if I'm lucky. SO busy at the moment! Shame not many of the things I'm doing are earning money, but ho hum, Rome wasn't built in a day.
I also ordered Omnisphere, which is making me a bit giggly, like a kid at Christmas...
Yeah., I have the *hopefully* understanding of mixing and mastering, it's just not always as easy to implement! What is in one's head isn't always what comes out of the speakers, despite the intentions.... ah, the joys of sample library orchestration :)
Thanks for the add too, and your comments. Nice sound you have on all your work. Not sure what I wrote in my message and am trying to work out the "after my own heart" reference :-)
Would love to pick your brains sometime on how you keep your mixes so crisp and clean. I'm never satisfied with my mixes (especially the brass - which is a real pain!) I'm using Symphobia, EW Gold, Garritan (although, not very much these days). I wish I could afford VSL. Looks like I will be going LASS first - maybe also Cinematic Strings and/or Hollywood Strings. One can never have enough strings!
Hi Matthew, thanks for your invite. I haven`t been in here since before Christmas and have just uploaded a 5 min film music excerpt, otherwise it might have been Christmas this year when I would have discovered you.
I`ll give your music a whirl sometime this week.
Hope your own recession is over, if there was one for you. Not many know what real music is anymore huh? A great many think it`s a piece of round flat plastic with a hole in the middle!! :)
Take care, and is that your own desk?
Wow!! Really cool you like my stuff ;)
The sample you speak of is incuded in the EWSOPlatPlus. I used it because I was looking to get that heart renching sadness into it. I think it's pretty cool and glad you agree!
I have to admit to being a little underwhelmed with VSL, but as SO many of us are using it I guess it's up to me to find the best way to use it.
LA Strings sounds pretty cool though!
I might check that out once I've been payed!!
Loving your work mate! Your production is immence ; )
What packages are you using and how do you find them?
I've recently upgraded to EastWest, Vienna and Symphobia.
Still trying to get the best out of 'em!!!
I was reading your conversation with Anthony Wakefield as I too, am stuck in the Doc doldrums! It's all for retail, which is frustrating as what I'm really seeking are some broadcast credits!
However, It does pay extremley well! LOL
