Terry Jones replied to ADENS SKY's discussion Best of the best String libraries?
"Pretty much what Raymond said actually. I know several composers who will mix and match several of the top string libs you've mentioned in a single composition in order to achieve the sound they desire and also use real players where necessary. I'm…"

Terry Jones replied to michael diemer's discussion MIR vs. Virtual Soundstage?
"I have Virtual Sound stage and use it a lot with EWQLSO, I find it extremely useful for placing my instruments within a "3D stage" environment and really don't agree with Raymond that it's a total waste of money.Yes you still need to understand how…"

Terry Jones replied to Keman's discussion Something Like This...
"I don't know about "random" harmonic glissandos, but you may be able to piece something together using the patches from this string library, it's completely dedicated to orchestral string effects:…"

Terry Jones replied to Maggie Bigelow's discussion The Elfman Sound
"This is not something you can get just for free, but if you can afford it it's probably well worth the money for study purposes alone (although you need to either live in the USA or know someone there who can order it for…"

Terry Jones replied to B Gray's discussion For those of you who dislike dissonant and atonal music
"A classic Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack and one of my favourites of all time."

Terry Jones replied to James Everett's discussion Reverb ER and Tails and their relation to multiple mic positions
"Hi James,
Yes, if you can use just close mics then that would ideal for using the ER's in VSS within my mind, unfortunately I don't have that luxury myself right now or that would probably be my choice too. In fact I'm hoping to eventually replace…"

Terry Jones replied to James Everett's discussion Reverb ER and Tails and their relation to multiple mic positions
"I use Virtual Sound Stage for placement and air absorption right now and really like it to be honest, but I don't use the ER's in it much as I'm using mostly EWQLSO Gold for my orchestral works. As this only comes with the stage position mics, which…"

Terry Jones replied to Adrian Allan's discussion Should using a DAW with samples be categorised as an art form?
"Well now this is just verbal semantics. I do not agree with you on all your points Adrian, but obviously there's nothing to be gained from discussing this further so I'll leave it here."

Terry Jones replied to michael diemer's discussion Adding Dynamics
"I have to agree with Eddy, you've got to "feel" the expressiveness in the music, the dynamics and phrasing will suggest themselves from that."
Mar 26, 2013
Terry Jones replied to Adrian Allan's discussion Should using a DAW with samples be categorised as an art form?
"I didn't say the music itself wasn't great expression, it surely is and the person who created is definitely an artist, no matter their approach to the task, but the pen/paper or DAW is just that, a tool to express your artistic intent. It's no…"

Terry Jones replied to michael diemer's discussion Adding Dynamics
"Look into the CC (Continuous Controller) codes that your sample libraries respond to, common ones are CC1 (modulation) and CC11 (Expression) to add expression to musical lines, especially on long held notes. A lot of more professional libraries tend…"

Terry Jones replied to Adrian Allan's discussion Should using a DAW with samples be categorised as an art form?
"I use both notation (in Sibelius and pen/paper) and a DAW (Cubase) in my work. I actually agree with the above poster in that they are just tools to get the job done and it's how proficient you are in using those tools to express your musical vision…"

Terry Jones replied to Eric Englehorn's discussion What Orchestral Virtual Instruments are you using?
"You mentioned solo Violin Eric, in which case if your budget is limited you might want to consider Embertone's upcoming violin library as well. It sounds quite nice and is going to be well within most people's budgets:…"

Terry Jones replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion Cinebrass or Hollywood Brass?
"If you're talking about the EWQL Symphonic Orchestra library then yes, it is fairly limited on the brass front compared to either of the two libraries we've been talking about so far. It has no decent "true legato" feature to speak of (the scripted…"

Terry Jones replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion Cinebrass or Hollywood Brass?
"They both have their strengths I think and I know composers working professionally who use both regularly in their templates. One thing you need to consider I think is how powerful your PC/Mac is, as Hollywood Brass is apparently a lot more…"
