yes breath controllers work wonders. Actually, any controller can. If you even put the note data in by hand and then go back and record the controller seperately that works well. i.e. -input notes by hand (although then you have even durations which is another problem entirely) -then set mod wheel t...

well, I have to say, as far as synth patches that are trying to simulate real instruments.....I haven't heard anything that even compares to sample technology. That being said, I think with the right tweaks you can make *anything* sound good. And mostly that has to do with dynamic range, phrasing an...

not the sound, just the tools and the applications (and some would say the platform itself). I've been a PC user as long as I can remember. I just got into the Mac world a couple years ago. I use both, but mostly I use the Mac for music. Macs are generally more geared towards professionals and less ...

I like the Trayg theme. Its a creative use of the low string texture (not real strings...but still way cool). Its just a simple ostenato thingy, and you take it on a journey adding melodies, modulating, stopping, starting, cresendos, cadences... stuff I need to do in my own music.... I'm still worki...

at 0:18 you introduce a warning horn (or a conch) and then later some bottle blows (pan flute?) or whatever they are... you should bring those back later on in some other way... they are great textures (and my favorite) that really convey the time, place, mood and culture.... alright, just ignore m...

I agree as well, the full measure rests are a bit awkward. Not musically, its just a sequencing thing or the patch sound. At 1:20 something and 6:20 something, the choir voices sound weird and cut off, but I know its just the patch. Same with the strings. If you had 80 live string players and a full...

I really like the Tusk soundtrack. That tribal sound was what I was trying to achieve in my Kruge track, although you pulled it off much better. at 0:18 you introduce a warning horn (or a conch) and then later some bottle blows (pan flute?) or whatever they are... you should bring those back later o...

sounds amazing... I've only listened to the warhorn remix so far... I noticed you changed the mode...sounds good though... I enjoyed the arrangement. My time is freeing up a little this summer, so hopefully I'll be able to contribute...writing, arranging, orchestrating, mixing, whatever.... man, I g...

Mongoose, I like the additions you made to the end of Warhorn Extreme! (which I do not know what that refers to...)

If I had a second of freetime, I'd contribute... (I will at some point)

sounds good though...

....back to the grind....

he did start out small though... (well sorta) for BG 1 he only used Emu's E4s. He did a lot of his own sampling though. Then he went on to bigger and better things with live orchestras and such. He supposedly has an amazing studio... Although I believe he uses the London Philharmonic a lot opposed t...

sounds like a good start to something... This is probably nit picking but dynamics or accents are needed during the kettle pulse (after 0:10). The rhythm as is, is a little boring and plain. Even liven it up with some flams and/or rolls... and I like the idea of the piano part, but again its a littl...

I don't know what to say... I wish I had some of that freetime!! although I know what you mean, sometimes freetime is a curse...and makes one a prime canidate for game-obsession... I finished Halo 2 in a few days during my break. My eyes and hands were sore for quite a while... good thing I don't ha...
