22b8n9x97ddrd replied to chris's discussion Advice on composing software vs. DAW
"I think Spiros actually meant to say the Reaper DAW. It's free to demo, with full features, for sixty days, after which it'll cost you just $60, which also covers plenty of free updates, but which would be just minor tweaks and such, as it has been…"

Spiros Makris replied to chris's discussion Advice on composing software vs. DAW
"Finale doesn't have any kind of DAW workflow integration, as far as i know, which means that no matter what DAW you choose, you will go through the same steps to connect it to finale: Export the midi file from finale and import it in the DAW of your…"

"I have Finale, I have Cubase now, I was in your exact shoes, you can import the midi from Finale into Cubase easily, I am now a happy camper.

chris replied to Antoine van Kampen's discussion One of my first compositions: Seven Monkeys
"Great job on the arrangement.  The piece has a rich sound, so good on the sound production.  I had trouble with where the music was headed harmonically, so I would recommend thinking about how to connect your melodic lines, as well as your harmonic…"

chris replied to Sam Powys's discussion I've tried to write a Fugue, how have I done?
"Sam:
I liked the clarity of each voice.  The mood was light, which is always nice with a fugue.  I am working on a fugue at the moment and the hardest part is balancing the harmonic movement with melodic movement.  To me it seems that the harmonic…"

chris replied to Joe Ruby's discussion Winter sketches - Number 2
"This seems brighter to me than winter.  Seems to be setting a positive backdrop for a warm reflective moment in a film, but besides that, I like the piece."

chris replied to Nathan Wakefield's discussion Mood Build
"This would be a great opening theme for a suspense or dark fantasy movie, except I would lose the flute...too bright for this piece, at least for me.  I dig your progressions and the pacing.  "

chris replied to Rick's discussion To the Batcave
"This actually makes me think more of Vivaldi than Batman, so I would hold on to this composition and think of maybe working it as a symphonic piece, at least the first half.   I think the brass towards the end isn't necessary as the strings are…"

chris replied to Nathan Wakefield's discussion Fire and Rain (Theme for a podcast)
"Good piece, but I feel like you could pull 2-3 musical ideas out of it and expand upon those.  Always good to write something that can grow into multiple ideas.  I got a little confused when things had a "spanish" or "moorish" sound, however you…"

chris replied to Alexander Hoffman's discussion Small Symphonic Adagio
"I can tell the basic idea you are trying to get across, but yes, take more time to develop the idea and move through more exposition.  I think your harmonization is clear, but the transitions need some work.  Maybe play with the tempo???"

chris replied to Alton D. Terry's discussion The Walk
"The sounds production is great and i really dig the mix of drums and strings.  I could see this growing into a full symphonic piece, kind of like "All Rise" by Wynton Marsalis"
