    Have A Good Life - by Justin Stewart

    Hey folks, this is something I put together using SWAM Saxaphones, my usual Alecia's keys and some drum samples. I think I'm slowly getting better at arranging the SWAM instruments. In this case I just played 5ths throughout with the tenor sax on top and baritone on the bottom. Oh and for a...

    Debussy's Nocturnes mvt 1 Mockup

    So...this is pretty pretty good. Really nice work. Shows off the Spitfire woodwind and Cinematic studio strings capabilities very well.

    Lofi/boombap/90s sort of hip-hop instrumental. (I'll return any feedback)

    Fair. Lo fi isnt 100 percent accurate. That would require a bigger kick for sure and usually some speech sample. And probably a slightly slower tempo. Thanks for giving it a listen.

    Presonus Studio One Pro 4.5 Released

    As a Reaper user who's considering switching DAWs, I would really hope they include track templates asap. It's something I only recently started to utilize and the time it saves is huge for me.

    Lofi/boombap/90s sort of hip-hop instrumental. (I'll return any feedback)

    Hey folks, this is just something I put together the other night. Some Goldbaby drums, komplete piano and synths and Orange Tree Guitars. Let me know what you think and if you leave a link, I'll be sure to give your music a listen as well. Cheers.

    Gone But Not Forgotten - AKA another Sample Modeling Trumpet beat.

    I think the SWAM saxes and Sample Modeling Trumpet has become my sound. I keep bringing one or the other into every track. lol.

    'Fight Music' new hip-hop/boombap instrumental track.

    Hey guys, this is something I just finished last night. Used a lot of Komplete stuff on this along with a splice vocal sample. Reaper and Renoise for the DAW. Let me know what you think. I'm pretty sure my bad mixing environment is resulting in less than stellar mixes, but hopefully it's not too...

    Sound Of The City aka some boombap, old school hip-hop.

    Yeah, it's what I grew up on, so it comes the most naturally to me. I like other stuff as well more along the lines of neo-soul/r & b etc. Never cared for Trap. I get the appeal of the 808 sub bass for club tracks, but I like my music a little more live sounding most of the time even if it isn't...

    Sound Of The City aka some boombap, old school hip-hop.

    Another track with the SWAM sax. I swear I use the SWAM and Sample Modeling on everything lately.

    Neo-soul / Progressive hip-hop composition.

    Hey guys, I thought I'd share this one. At the least it shows what an ordinary producer/composer can do with Sample Modeling's Trumpet and the Orange Tree Sample guitar libraries. I started with a Steel String guitar preset, no keyswitches, and got the main riff. Added Scarbee's EP88 for 2...

    Unique, unusual and lesser known expressive MIDI CONTROLLERS

    http://global-dj.com/product/tornado-a1-midi-controller-wireless-3d-gloves/ Not too sure how I feel about putting on gloves while playing my keyboard, but with so many sensors it may be able to send a heck of a lot of MIDI data simultaneously.

    Unique, unusual and lesser known expressive MIDI CONTROLLERS

    I thought it might be worthwhile to share some MIDI controllers which are lesser known and cheaper than the other MPE devices. Not all of us have a couple thousand dollars lying around, but we'd still like to be able to interact in an more expressive way with our synths and other music software...

    My process for building realistic instrumental sections with SWAM and Sample Modeling instruments.

    I'll see if I can scrape together the funds for the bite/tilt model. I just picked up a used Leap Motion. Any suggestions you'd be willing to share for setup? I'm trying to figure out how to map pitch control to hand rotation. Also want to see how the heck side motion can be used to control the...

    My process for building realistic instrumental sections with SWAM and Sample Modeling instruments.

    The extra controls, bite and tilt, obvously can't hurt. Big difference in cost though between the two. I'm no professional, so budget is always something to take into consieration. Thanks for the reply though.

    My process for building realistic instrumental sections with SWAM and Sample Modeling instruments.

    Hi Rohan, are you using the TEC Breath Controller, or the Breath and Bite Controller? Any thoughts on whether it's worthwhile shelling out the extra cash for the breath and bite model? I'll probably pick up a Leap Motion controller first since it's inexpensive, but I wouldn't mind grabbing a TEC...

    Audio Modeling 12 Strings Chamber Orchestra

    The more I see arrangements like this being made, the more I think I may be better off just learning to make string sections using the Audio Modelling instruments. The main drawback is the sheer time it takes to program something decent with a section of course. It'll be interesting to see how...

    Sessions Strings Pro 2

    I was hopeful when I saw the ad at the top of Explorer, then I watched the videos and thought "Not bad." It looked worthwhile, until I checked out the manual and all the rhythm and pattern generator options are only for the ensemble patches, not the individual instruments. I honestly don't get...

    Wow - Chris Hein Ensemble Strings Looks Great

    Do the individual instruments in each section(violins, cellos, basses) have any delay between their start and end times? If not, things sound way too perfectly in sync without any smearing between instruments. I'm looking forward to the reviews for this one.

    My process for building realistic instrumental sections with SWAM and Sample Modeling instruments.

    Damn...This is the best tutorial I've read in a while. Thank you kindly Rohan. Truly awesome work. The SWAM Engine guys should hire you for this stuff.

    Keith Mcmillen BopPad

    I just started looking into getting a new drum controller to play parts unquantized. I was thinking of the BopPad, but not sure it's the best way to go. Thank you for your review as it's the only one I've read that was of any use. Knowing it's not quite sensitive enough for finger playing is a...

    Thoughts on Spitfire Chamber Strings, VSL Dimension, Berlin, Cinematic Studio Strings

    Absolutely. Many of us don't need a huge section, particularly if we are not making a full orchestral piece. If I just need some nice violins for a pop track it would be nice to not have to look at an entirely different library. Instead just choose another patch and be on my way.

    Would you pay for software you can legally get for free?

    I buy because for the most part it's less hastle than searching for free copies. They always caused problems for my PC and often were just a bitch to install. Of course, I just purchased the Virharmonic Cello and it's been a nightmare to install as every file turns up corrupted, which has never...

    Thoughts on Spitfire Chamber Strings, VSL Dimension, Berlin, Cinematic Studio Strings

    I think that given how Audiobro had divisi 8 years ago it should just be expected by companies now. I mean it's always mentioned as a good advanced feature to have and nobody ever says it's not worth having, so why would any relatively new orchestral library be without it at this time?

    Real Talk On Sample Modeling Brass

    I own the Trumpet as well as a couple SWAM instruments(saxes and string collection). The trumpet is as good as it gets for a solo instrument. I'll be picking up the Trombone at some point as well.

    The Audio Modeling SWAM String Orchestra

    I have the string section and am attempting to get a decent small ensemble sound for pop recordings. I can't imagine how long it would take me to pull of something like this though!
