Julien replied to ADENS SKY's discussion Best of the best String libraries?
"Spitfire Audio have some amazing strings librairies and they have gotten better as time went by. Their new "Mural" collection looks really amazing. Unlike Albion it's not "all-in-one", each section is sampled with plenty of mic positions to go…"

"I still think that sub bass at the beginning needs a bit more of a band pass where the bass is building up but hey that's a matter of taste.
As far as the screaming sounds it's much better now, it blends in much better with the track, good job. I…"

Julien replied to Ben Woodrow's discussion Aurora
"Before commenting further, your pad needs some serious EQ, do you hear all the mudd ? the bass is literally killing my ears. Do a band pass to try and find the spot where the mud is and get rid of it
That being said, I enjoyed it overall, I wasn't a…"

Julien replied to Natanel Arnson's discussion New trailer music!
"I enjoyed this, good stuff. Some instruments sound a bit dry for me but then it's a matter of taste, I like to put wayy too much reverb but it does help putting everything together nicely. I also kept expecting choirs, that might be a good idea ;)"

Julien replied to Julien's discussion Do I need a soundcard ?
"I have an acer laptop with an integrated audio card, an i7 2.2ghz that boosts up to 2.8 if pushed to its limits and 8gb of DD3 RAM. Even with a lot of CPU heavy effects, it seems to hold it together, CPU load rarely exceeds 60%.
I am on windows XP…"

Donya Quick replied to Julien's discussion Do I need a soundcard ?
"What spec machine do you have (processor, RAM, OS, etc.)? I've never used Kontakt, but running out of memory sounds like something that should be addressed before an audio interface. Depending on what the root of the problem is, a struggling system…"

Julien replied to Julien's discussion Do I need a soundcard ?
"Thanks for the replies. I feel like I understand the issue a bit more now.
So far I have never experienced stuttering, just Kontakt running out of RAM and notes just not coming through but I guess at one point or another I will have to invest in an…"

Donya Quick replied to Julien's discussion Do I need a soundcard ?
"Ray has an important point about the latency. Even when not recording or doing any sort of real-time work, the latency can be a make or break issue with playback and final rendering with DAWs. For example, when I've tried to run Sonar X1/X2 with…"

Julien replied to Natanel Arnson's discussion New epic!
"I liked it overall but here's my 2 cents:
- If you're going to make more music like this, I would suggest investing in a good kontakt strings library. The strings you used are very RPG-like synthy sounding and sound kinda lame (i'm talking about the…"

Julien replied to Nathan Wakefield's discussion Pensive, an instrumental piece.
"I really enjoyed this, very emotional, you seem to work in a similar fashion as I do, find simple chords then work from there and get emotions out of it. Great piece, I'd love to hear it played by a real orchestra to give it its full potential."

Sondre Jensen replied to Julien's discussion Reverb for orchestral tracks in a DAW
"Yes, but surely som basic theoretical guidelines cannot hurt. In no way do I claim to have acchieved authenticity by using the principles in this book, but as a beginner i do feel that it has pointed me in a very right direction.
I do not doubt the…"

"I've recently read a very interesting book called ¨the composers approach¨ by Mike Novy.It mainly deals with how you can simulate depth and placement in the virtual orchestra by using reverbs and delays, and it has lots of tables with level and time…"

"Julien, how do you like Cinematic strings? I've been thinking about getting them. Do you find them adequate to your needs, or are you feeling like you need something better?"

Julien replied to Upamanyu Kar's discussion "Echoes of the Beas River" - my work for Violin
"Agreed with the previous poster, the melody does sound very nice and a lot of reverb can help creating an eerie atmosphere but you went overboard with it I think. Just decrease the reverb a bit and you're all set, I don't see anything to change…"

I have not read it myself, but it comes highly recommended. I just thought it was worth…"
