Jonny Walker replied to Anders Christensen's discussion Soundtrack for a Pirate movie - Captain Blackbeard
"This is a nice track. Though it sounds a little held back, during the big parts, especially at 1:50 - 2:00. I'm thinking it needs more bass and perhaps more percussion to give the strings more punch, in key parts."

"Hi Raina,

I really like Jasmine Wind, it has a very serene feel to it, beautiful piano playing too. Like you, I started out with little to no music theory knowledge and learned by ear. I encourage people who are starting out to learn by ear as it…"

"Hi Simon,

I'm needing a little help with something. I'm having trouble creating a full violin ensemble sound. When I use the samples from Symphonic Orchestra, the sound is quite thin and has no full effect. Even when I layer the samples.

Could you…"

"Hi Simon,

Thanks for the info. I also use East West software, Symphonic Orchestra Gold and Stormdrum. :) I'm hoping to get more of their packages, when I can afford it!

Thanks,
Jonny."

"Hi Simon,

Thanks for the add. I'm really liking your music, also.
What software did you use for Ama's Story? I have been looking for a VST program that has chime sweeps, like the ones you used at the beginning of the track.

Regards,
Jonny."

  • Hi Jonny

     

    Love your work, some beautiful tunes here (especially like Meddow!)

  • Amazing works
  • Hi jonny,

    thanks for that. nice tracks you made. it's got a gentle cinematic feel to it without being pretentious. Very original and genuine. Well done. When you have time have a listne to my newest tracks. They're part of my new feature film.

    cheers!

  • Deliverance has a genuinely cinematic appeal. Powerful yet serene. Triumph is uplifting. Nice production.
  • I just fell in love with your song CrystalCaves. That was a beautiful song. :)
  • Hi Jonny,
    Ofcourse first you have to choose the correct samples. The EWSO Gold string section gives you choices solo violin, 4x violin, 11x and 18 x. Also there is a large string section of I think 50 and 70 where all strings, bass, cello, viola and violins are layered. I personally don't like those large string sections. It better to create them yourself and that the answer to your question. It helps to have violins double a part on two different octaves and one 2nd voice part. So three parts actually. Then accompany those those parts with one viola part and two cello parts and a bass part. Doing this with solo samples will already give you a fuller sound. Then experiment with changing to 11 or 18 violin samples and the same for the viola, cello and bass.
    A nice thin reverb such as altiverb will give a nice finish to the fullness of sound.

    hope it helps good luck!

  • O pardon, I think the chimes were from Stormdrum, not RA, the flute was
    from RA. Yeah so either Stormdrum or EWSO gold percussion section.
    Yeah, been spending thousands on these packages. But defenitely worth it.

  • Hi Jonny,
    thanks for that. I'm using protools with east west samples. The chimes come from the RA bundle.
    cheers
