    ScoreTalk (Ep. 2): Why The 'Schindler's List' Theme Is So Beautiful

    Hi! Thank you. I only really know of 2 ways: analyzing using root quality chord symbols (C major), and Roman numerals. That's how I was taught in classical theory classes. In the case of composing, I would assume it typically goes how you'd describe it. Our inner ear leads us to chord...

    Composing With Audio Imperia's NUCLEUS (Orchestral Ballad)

    I might have taken ‘Sample Talk’ too literally haha. It can definitely be moved there!

    Composing With Audio Imperia's NUCLEUS (Orchestral Ballad)

    Good morning friends! If you've ever wondered how Audio Imperia's Nucleus works and what styles it can cover, I just uploaded a video featuring the softer, more intimate side of the library. I hope this is at least somewhat helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions!

    Black Friday's coming up – Which Woodwinds library should I get?

    Best "How to write..." youtube videos?

    Hey Mike, it's so funny you mention this, I just uploaded a video on how to write an orchestral ballad using AI's Nucleus. It may not be exactly what you're looking for, but I thought I'd leave it here anyway. Enjoy!

    Cineharps vs Chocolate Audio Harp

    Cineharps is slightly more characterful and more upfront than OT harps, which are more delicate and blend very well in the background of most scores.

    Orchestral Tools - Time Micro (A Textured Beauty)

    Hello composers! In my final review of the year, let's discuss the newest library from Orchestral Tools, Time Micro. With a chamber-sized vision in mind, did they succeed?

    Why are there no video reviews (on You Tube) of Berlin Strings?

    It's definitely one of my 2 go-to's, the other being CSS. I tend to layer them (CSS for the lusher, darker sound and BS for the brighter, more detailed one). They create a large, passionate sound I really love. It is quite resource hungry (then again, I first used it when I had 8gb of RAM on my...

    Orchestral Tools TIME micro - BLANK PAGE Special added!

    Ooo, that might be a trickier one. Considering one is a textural quiet library, where the other is all out bombastic. I’m thinking a Micro patch with mod wheel up + deep sustains in Ark 1 would sound great.
