I specifically layer my strings for long melodies, because CSS and BS work so well together and give me that perfect romantic string sound I love....
Have you taken a look at Blue Street Brass?
Appreciate it, thank you!
What can I say? I think they're the best :D
So refreshing to have it recorded dry, and the impulse sounds so good.
Nice job Jacob! The percussion's a bit on the heavy/loud side for me, but otherwise the mixing and balance is well done. Keep it up!
Yes, those two instruments would be a nice bonus to round off the extreme ranges. Thanks for watching!
Hi friends, today I wanted to explore my 2 favourite solo woodwind libraries on the market. Equipped with a pure and clean tone, as well as...
It should be called Violins & Violas Runs Transitions.
OSR actually has a lovely runs transition patch, which combines violins and violas to create a realistic smearing sound as you play your runs. I...
Hope you’re having a wonderful day today! :sneaky:
Cory has a wonderful style indeed. Relaxed, informative and humorous as well! I always enjoy watching his reviews, as well as his composing videos.
My preference has always been Tina Guo Legato and V2, but then again I haven’t written music needing other styles of cello. For what it does,...
Wonderful thread topic here! Some of my favourite top name developers are:
Cinematic Studio Series
I always use...
Cineharps is my go-to. For fantasy, adventure, and even solo writing, Cineharps has an incredibly full and detailed sound that I love.
Hello fellow composers & arrangers! Today let's discuss a couple effective instrument combinations that will enhance your sonic palette.
Love 90’s Retro Trumpets.
I'd have to agree; the only theme I can really recall after listening a few times is the short motive at 1:48. The orchestration and production...
Absolutely! I think the main thing I would say is that the high percussion at the beginning (is that a triangle?) should be taken down a few db,...
Wonderful work Paul! I love the simplicity of the main theme, how it develops and takes some twists, along with some creative orchestration...
Hi friends! Today I wanted to share how I arranged an original composition for Tina Guo for full orchestra. Please enjoy!
Indeed, the room is integral. Looove the Sony sound man
In regards to CSB, you mention the sound is slightly more clear than Cinebrass. On the contrary, I would argue that CSB has a slightly...

That means a lot to me Paul. Thank you!
Each piece that I upload I consider an official release, so that’s the naming I decided to go with :)
Very cool suggestion. Thanks Ben!
Trying my hand at something different. Please enjoy this short trailer track! :)
Did you just update your post to include Q3? Haha I didn't notice that there before. But yes, I do! It comes in handy sometimes :)
Thanks for watching :)
Hello my friends - welcome to the final section of the breakdown, where I discuss the mixing/processing I applied. Please enjoy :)
Thanks Moma! I mainly used CSS for this one - I felt the more retro tone of the strings catered itself well to this style.
That means a lot to me. Thank you so much for watching! Please let me know if you ever have any questions.
Thank you! I'd say it took me around 15 hours combined to write and produce this piece. In general, I treat violins 1 and 2 as the melodic and...
And yes, Adam is awesome! There’s a few of his videos I absolutely love, including the ‘Harmonizing Sax Soli’. God that’s beautiful.
Many thanks Chris. I’m sending you a message to discuss this further, if that’s okay.
Not at all! I appreciate your feedback man. I’ll have to look into these 4 personality types :D
I’m actually a full-time piano/theory teacher, so I’m always open to suggestions for improving.
Thank you! I’d love to know what you think I can do to improve my presentation. :)
My top choices:
1. CineBrass - perfect for the punchy superhero sound.
2. Cinematic Studio Brass - a very warm tone, opens up beautifully with...
Hi all, this is part 2, where I’ll discuss the orchestration and arrangement behind the piece :) enjoy!
Great job man. What I do is engage the 'mix' position throughout, but when it comes to mixing, I'll treat it with EQ whenever needed.
Thank you :)
The first part of the breakdown is now live! In this we discuss the theory and melodic/harmonic choices. Please enjoy!
Hey everyone! Welcome to the first episode of 'Inside The Score' for my newest piece, where we'll take a look at the musical background and the...
Much appreciated, thank you!
