"Hi Philip, thank you.
I tried to show off some variation in my pieces, since everyone has different taste (clients).It's nice to hear you talk about the small vs large thing, because I discussed that with a friend.
He said it was good to have some…"

Philip Ricciardi replied to Thomas Van Beeck's discussion My new tracks 2012
"Thomas, I listened to your track and I liked them. What I found most interesting was how you contrast the sound of small vs large ensemble sounds in the same piece. It provides not only a variety of dynamics, but also a change in "intimacy" as you…"

Anthony Berlin replied to Thomas Van Beeck's discussion more than 16 general midi channels, how to?
"Then I can't help you. The NI version has a DFI (Direct From Disc) feature, made by NI, and you can set it to load much of the instruments from the harddrive, which means less ram memory is used. It works pretty well and you can get around 14-15…"

"Do you maybe by any chance use the NI versions of EWQL for your orchestra? Then, if you use 7200 rpm harddrives, or ssd harddrives, I have a great solution for you. But I won't bother writing it all down here if you don't have it :) It won't work…"

"I currently only have GP4 installed, but have GP5 & 6 on my other machine.If I try this in GP4, the linking works but the linked channels share the same instrument.

Thomas Van Beeck replied to Thomas Van Beeck's discussion New song, but what about the mix?
"Hey thanks alot Matt.
Yeah, it's possible that it is slightly distorted, that's the maximizer probably.
I made an updated version.
I mostly did some highpassing on some of the drums, played with the eq-ing and panned them a bit more to the center.…"

Matt Walsh replied to Thomas Van Beeck's discussion New song, but what about the mix?
"To my ear the section at roughly 0:50- 1:25 was slightly distorted but not even nearly TOO distorted...maybe ease off of the reverb in the chorus and the horns a tad in that section? I think its mostly the chorus line, but at the same time that…"

  • Hi Thomas, great to meet you at Composium last weekend. I am hearing good writing in your work - keep it up!
  • Hi Thomas!
    it was great meeting you and talk music. I hope we will have the opportunity again sometime and maybe we could even get together sometime when I'm in Sweden.
    Good luck with your music and thanks for adding me as a friend

  • Awesome to meet you Thomas!
  • Hey Thomas,
    Yes I am very much into video games and love composing for anything visual really.
    Am yet to own a ps3 - am saving though :)
    How about yourself? Are you interested in composing for game?

  • Hey thanks! I will post some music when I think I have something worthy of posting!! haha
  • Hi Thomas, thanks for the kind words. I would say that the bulk of my woodwinds are from VSL but many of the effects (rip, grace notes, etc) are from Symphobia (and now also Hollywoodwinds).
