Spiros Makris commented on Jonas Steur's blog post The star trek utopia of free music in a world of global uncontrolled capitalism
"You have touched a sensitive matter. You see, as in all things, you sell your basic product (the music you write) cheap, and yet the "concumer" (your audience) most of the times get's it so so many times higher!

Jonas Steur replied to Henri Vartio's discussion Some attempts at writing a good tune.
"Hey Henri,
 
Writing memorable melodies is one of those things that can be quite hard, some composers just seem to get them effortlessly , others struggle, others don't even want to be melodic.
In the examples you posted I think the first one is…"

Jonas Steur replied to Jonas Steur's discussion "mastering" orchestral music
"Hey Greg,

I was mostly interested in some things that are specific to dealing with orchestral music nowadays, I tend to be very careful myself not to…"

Greg Moore replied to Jonas Steur's discussion "mastering" orchestral music
"Hey Jonas, what Jerry said is totally right.  You must have good orchestration to save you a lot of trouble in the mix.  This is different from mastering.  In short, mastering is just about getting each song on an album to sound good from track to…"

Jonas Steur replied to Simon Godden's discussion Cubase 6
"Ah well in that case you could automate the volume so the part is a bit louder at that point in the track. The cubase automation is pretty straight forward and explained in the manual. Maybe you already have experience using it. In case you have…"

Jonas Steur replied to Jonas Steur's discussion yet another quest
"Good suggestions Doug., thanks . This piece was written in a very short time and most of it is based on improvisation of the moment so I certainly can still dig a lot deeper. I plan on expanding it at a later time so I will keep your suggestions…"

Doug Lauber replied to Jonas Steur's discussion yet another quest
"A+. I like it a lot. I think you could take it to the next level by concentrating on intensifying those beautiful rhythmic motifs. Try making them more dramatic with more variations with changes that are surprising. I like the lull that is…"

Jonas Steur replied to Tom Jensen's discussion Trench - full orchestra piece - recorded by NZSO
"Lovely :) super that you got the chance to record this live, sounds great.
