Henry Cavalier replied to Henry Cavalier's discussion 2.1 Logic Pro mixed orchestral score for a 5.1 surround film project?
"Thanks Raymond. I was considering that option, but I just heard there is an audio guy who will be processing the final audio mix of the film in 5.1. I'm thinking that now I should just send him the stems and he should be responsible for implementing…"

Henry Cavalier replied to Tyler Hughes's discussion How relevant is Theory to you as a composer
"I studied a few years of theory courses in music school. I was actually a trumpet major but always screwed around in the MIDI labs creating fake scores for the fun of it. After dropping out of music school due to the brass department judging my…"

"I didn't find music to be a challenge before or during an undergraduate education. I found the administration to offer themselves as a damn for people like me via a political agenda. I found the staff to offer a microscopic escape from the…"
