    Okay, I just updated the track. Would really love your honest and most critical feedback. Hopefully it is structurally improved, first and foremost. Thanks for listening vi-c!

    "With Trembling Hands" Orchestral (seeking feedback)

    Thanks, Simon! I'm glad there is consensus around @jbuhler's well-expressed critiques. It's so much easier to improve things when everyone has the same issues with the song. Thanks, Muk! Appreciate it! I will definitely post a full and detailed list of VI's along with a revised version of the...

    @jbuhler thank you so much for the fabulous feedback! Exactly the kind of critique I love hearing. I will get cracking on a revised version! Thanks again.

    "With Trembling Hands" Orchestral (seeking feedback)

    Thanks, Hywel! Glad to hear your feedback. I should probably work on the overall structure a bit more. I’ve lost some perspective on the track and how a fresh listener experiences it, so will think about how to improve its stickiness in the middle.

    "With Trembling Hands" Orchestral (seeking feedback)

    Greetings, UPDATE: Track was updated Thurs July 18. Here's a revised version of an orchestral track I posted last week that I'm still hoping to get some feedback on. Any thoughts on composition, orchestration or mix? You can be totally, brutally honest. I've learned a lot from this type of...

    Secret Lives of Gnomes

    Sounds very clear and detailed. Nice composition too. I purchased it too and am awaiting my license. It’s reassuring to hear a nice user demo like this.

    Logic Pro 10.4.6 released

    Happy about this one: Kontakt libraries on frozen tracks now consistently reload after unfreezing in projects that have the “Only load plug-ins needed for project playback” setting enabled. And I wonder if the issues people had with Thanos are gone after this: Resolves various issues in...

    VSL SE Vol 5: Dimension Strings 1+2

    Anyone know if there are different attack types/hardnesses in the legato patches triggered by velocity? Also, some libraries have repetition/unison legato patches you can trigger via sustain pedal. Are there samples like that in SE?

    VSL SE Vol 5: Dimension Strings 1+2

    Right okay good point. So in that case, one could think about it as only “losing” about 100 Euros if you buy SE now and then decide you really should have just bought the full version of DS 1 & 2. And you could see that 100 Euros as the cost of figuring out how much you like working with DS...

    VSL SE Vol 5: Dimension Strings 1+2

    Yeah, I’m wondering about that too. And the fact that there’s a discount to upgrade to the full edition isn’t super enticing given the math. Meaning the ability to one day upgrade at a discount for me can’t be the basis on which to buy SE. When I add SE to my cart, and then add the full...

    At the 5 minute mark in this video, Paul demonstrates one of legato violins patches on the full Dimension Strings VI edition. Please note, it’s not the SE version, and not Synchonized, but unless I’m mistaken, this particular legato patch is included in the Syn DS SE library. And it sounds...

    New Game. Guess the temp!

    That’s exactly what it sounds like to me. And I should add that I have no insider knowledge on if it was literally used as temp. I assume the same thing happened on Meet Joe Black. I have to blame the directors, personally as both JNH and TN have no need to rip anyone off.

    Would doing "a song a day" help me speed up the composition process or just result in frustration?

    Thanks, John. This is a very passionate reply and I seem to have gotten you worked up, but I think you’re a little bit misunderstanding what I wrote. I said nothing of thinking in terms of dollars per hour for music, other than earning what it takes to survive and have a sustainable career that...

    Would doing "a song a day" help me speed up the composition process or just result in frustration?

    If it's any reassurance, Takeshi Furukawa said it took him 13 months to write The Last Guardian. Was he paid for 13 months of living though? That I can't say. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross took 14 months to write the score for Dragon Tattoo, and arguably that's not as complex as orchestral...

    Logic Pro 10.4.5 Update

    I just ran into some CPU overloading on a big project, so I froze a number of tracks, then after doing some tempo changes, Logic re-calculates/re-freezes the frozen tracks, but for some reason, some of the frozen tracks are silent on playback. Has anyone had this issue?

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    That’s how I understand it as well. I recently bought woodwinds plus for about a $100 and to get the Synchronized version will need to buy the full volume 1 plus and then the upgrade. Current promotion plus special upgrade based on what I own is 198 Euros. I’m mainly interested in the solo winds...

    How do people deal with CSS delay?

    Aren’t composers under crushing deadlines as it is? Everyone is different, I guess, but I’d rather start from order and add a little chaos to taste rather than struggle to keep my wits about me as I shift a little here and a little there for every single legato note. And I’m no pro and not...

    Embertone Support timeline?

    I waited 11 days for a license transfer recently. They were closed for a week during those 11 days though. I wouldn’t be too worried. License transfers (on which they make no money and potentially lose a sale) are understandably low on their list of priorities. They are one of the few...

    I think you stumped us all. But I like the concept of this game. Tell us what it is! And if you're okay with it, I thought I'd post something more obvious to keep the game going. Just let me know if you're not, and I'll delete it.

    I buy more than I use, and I forget those I buy

    I’m no expert, but the only solution I think would work (for me) is like Geoff said, to unsubscribe from all deal emails and stop visiting websites where deals are announced or discussed (like VIC). And then maybe try to redirect the compulsive hoarding tendencies to something not as...
