    EW Spaces II - Anyone upgrading?

    Only a $10 price discount for people who already own Spaces 1? Wow! You would think a loyalty discount would be a bit more, but oh well, I guess it's better than nothing.

    New O.T. Harpsichords

    I love the sound of the Harpsichord and always thought it should be used more in modern music....but the sound is so synonymous with Baroque music that I guess it will always sound dated to most ears, hence not be used much. Too bad!

    Looking for someone to transcribe this song, or how to go about it.

    He said, “everything”. I told him that might be difficult, but promised him I would ask. The guy is in his 80’s, and a hell of a pianist. Personally, I would just have the band listen to it over and over until they learned its by ear as best they could, but that’s just me.

    Sample Library Depreciation thread

    This is what I've wished for many years now. I've spent between $30k and $40k on music software/samples/synths since around the early 2000's. Sadly, nearly half of my purchases have been long-term disappointments in which I never ended up using the software. $15k - $20k of wasted money! I...

    Looking for someone to transcribe this song, or how to go about it.

    I know a gentleman who is trying to find someone who can transcribe the piece in this video for his band to perform. He asked me if I would ask around, so I thought I would try here and pass on any information on how to go about this back to him. Thanks!

    J.S. Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor on the Baloran The River synthesizer

    This is dedicated to my father who passed away this last weekend. My father was the one who introduced me to Bach, as well as other classical music when I was growing up.

    If you had to choose 3 synths amongst these.

    I realize it's not on the list, but ever since I bought my Baloran The River synth, I've been a VERY happy camper! :2thumbs: I still love my OB-6, Deckard's Dream, and Modal 002, but haven't touched them in over a month now with The River occupying my synth time.

    Waves is Relentless with Their Sales

    Why complain that Waves has constant sales? I find it a very good thing for my bank account actually. Waves has clearly lost its dominance in the plug-in FX market and needs to survive, thus the constant sales....which is a win win for everyone IMO.

    Most Disappointing Library Purchase?

    There are plenty of subpar libraries, but I honestly believe if you really know what you are doing, you can coax a great performance out of nearly any library.....it's just a bit more work and frustration, but it can be done! Some of my best work over the years was using very basic libraries...

    Mockups of music that isn't public domain.

    I did a recreation of the 60's synth hit, Popcorn. I even made the recording sound old with record hiss and all. The CW owner thought that I was posting their recording of it. I had to prove to them that it was done with a Moog One synth and Cubase. D'oh! :eek:

    Wow! Very interesting how this could be challenged. I have had my stuff challenged when I recreated it obviously too close the original myself. I've decided now that I'm always going to change the tempo slightly....and perhaps even the key, as to not have the YT algorithms think that my...

    Mockups of music that isn't public domain.

    I remember the industry trying to create a law that would force cover bands to pay them also. Should a pianist who plays a piano version of AC/DC's Highway To Hell and posts it to Youtube now have to pay AC/DC? I do a lot of covers on YT and have found most to be OK, but this is a real sticky...

    "Vengeance" from "The Sorcerer" by Tangerine Dream - vintage synth tones from The River

    I thought I'd see if the Baloran The River was good with vintage sounds, and IMO it definitely delivered! "Vengeance" is a track by Tangerine Dream on the 1977 film, Sorcerer. My father had this on 8-track back in the late 70's and it always memorized me.

    Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity feat. OB6, Modal 002, Prophet X, and Deckard's Dream

    This has to have been by far the most challenging of my classical synth pieces yet. Nearly 90 hours went into this and I'm really happy how it came out. Now that I have both Mars, and now Jupiter finished, I'm planning to do the remaining 5 planets to complete the series. I hope you enjoy this.

    Thanks Ned! Yeah, in hindsight I could have probably taken the snare down a dB or two. I feel very blessed to have the synths I have. They all compliment one another very well. I am hoping to add a Baloran The River to the flock. The River demos are some of the best I’ve ever heard on a...

    Unfortunately this seems to be the case with most sample libs IMO. If you can afford it, you really need at least 2 or 3 libraries to be covered with just about every type of instrument.

    What String Libraries for the New-Age Genre?

    As a New Age music composer for nearly 30 years now, IMO you really can use just about ANY string library. It's not really about the particular library, but more importantly, how it is utilized in your compositions.
