"Hey Mr A! Honestly I don't think you should blame yourself at all here. I definitely wasn't taking a sideswipe at any admins. I think it can be a very tricky job and everyone here comes from quite different backgrounds. I think we do a surprisingly…"

"Hey Chris and everyone. I'd love to see this forum get more active. I think there are a few 'personalities' here who have a tendency to be very dominant in discussions (effectively overriding or dismissing other opinions as wrong). Not talking about…"

Incidentally I used this…"

"Thanks for the post. I love talking about the theory that makes music awesome. I enjoyed reading about how this device was found in other pieces also and influenced other film composers such as Horner."

Rodney Carlyle Money commented on James Semple's blog post John Williams in Love
"We might be talking about different pieces, but are we talking about when the horn comes in? If so I thought the piece was in D major, so where is the opening harmony of G to Cm6? It's D to gm/D or we actually call it a I to iv6/4, and the iv is…"

James Semple replied to Michael T's discussion Cinematic Strings -Test Drive
"Hey Michael this is a great piece of writing and you've done a great job here. 
Personally I like CS. It has a couple of issues but overall it's one of the best libraries for sound straight out of the box."

"Wow! Thank you! I always wondered why in my Music Theory class the teacher forbade parallel fifths and octaves as if it were a sin! And it is very true. So cool (: Thank you again!"

  • Hey James,
    Enjoyed the tunes and great sounds! The studio project looked very interesting too. A labor of love!
    Thanks for the comment,
    Hey Larry
  • Chris, that's a great idea. I have a fair few shots of the construction and I went into a fair bit of detail when building it.

    I'll get some pictures together and start the blog later this week if I can.

    Again, I'd just like to thank everyone for their friendly comments. This is a great community.
  • Yo James! We would LOVE for you to post a blog about building your new studio. Pictures and everything. You could go into details about how you did your sound design and sound proofing and so on!
