    Hey Guys, For those of you in Nashville (if any), are you currently looking for an assistant or intern? Or maybe the company or studio you work at is looking for extra help?

    Some year-end statistics! Feel free to share yours!

    Cool thread! For those of you that do this full time, how many years did you spend building this up as a side hustle until you were ready to take the plunge and go full time? Would be interesting to hear

    Spitfire Solo Strings.. help?

    So I picked up SSS the other day on wishlist (thnx Spitfire!) and I have a question for you guys that have it or have used it.. It seems that when holding out long notes, you can hear the rebowing that seems to happen kind of randomly. Meaning it doesn't snap to the grid or anything like that...

    Large Templates on Laptops?

    I have been using a 2011 Macbook Pro with 16GB RAM for a while now.. It really didn't take much to max out the ram on it if you're using things like the Hollywood series. I would purge samples and stuff but I always found myself having to freeze groups of tracks and work in sections, etc. More...

    My Mockup of Christian Hensons "The Big Match"

    I was going through some old Pro Tools sessions the other day and found this mockup I started of this track. It's just a section of the song, and I left some things out, but the chord voicings sounded so good when I first heard this track that I had to at least try to figure them out. Highly...

    Do you think this computer will do the job well enough?

    I am planning on streaming my samples off an SSD via USB 3.0 (or thunderbolt if necessary- would need to find an enclosure), and will run session off a separate HD via usb as well. Or I could run session off same SSD as samples. Not sure which is better. Do you guys think that will work fine?

    Do you think this computer will do the job well enough?

    I believe the connections on the back are USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt 2

    Do you think this computer will do the job well enough?

    Right now I'm running my samples from the internal SSD that I installed on my MBP. I was planning on just streaming samples from an external SSD via USB 3.0 on the iMac. Would that be sufficient? Right now I have virtually no lag time and super fast loading (I know it's not ideal to stream from...

    Do you think this computer will do the job well enough?

    Nice! Thanks for the info. Yeah I would consider that a huge template so I’m sure it will be more than enough for me then, ha ha. Thanks for the help!

    Do you think this computer will do the job well enough?

    Hey so I'm seeking some advice from you veterans out there. Currently I'm running a 2011 macbook pro as my studio computer. Needless to say it's beginning to be a struggle. Especially being maxed out at 16GB Ram with an old i7. It does well, but loading up a bunch of Kontakt instances and...

    Cinestrings Solo vs CSSS

    I've currently got my eyes peeled for upcoming Black Friday deals with the goal of acquiring a good solo strings library (I don't own one yet). So far my research leads me to these two, which seem like good options, and not too crazy of a price. To those of you that own one or both, care to...

    Black Friday 2018 - What's on your Wish List?

    I don't have a solo string library at the moment. Currently rocking EWSO, Adagietto, and Agitato Sordinos. So I definitely would like a solo string library to complement that. Do you have any favs?

    Hyperion Strings Micro: Powerful, affordable strings for everyone! (Starting Price $39.00)

    I layered the Hyperion strings with EWSO strings in this mockup if you want to hear how they sound. I think they layered really well and added some "bite" to the more ambient EWSO samples: ""

    Junkie XL - "Brothers in Arms" (Mad Max) MIDI Mockup

    Thanks a lot for the feedback man, I agree with all your points! And thanks for pointing out the synth reinforcing the strings.. I was trying to get mine to be as thick and punchy as his and I noticed it still sounded different. So that would be something fun to experiment with!

    Junkie XL - "Brothers in Arms" (Mad Max) MIDI Mockup

    So this week I decided to transcribe some orchestral/cinematic music for the first time. This is my first ever MIDI mockup of a track like this so I was a little hesitant to post it. (This is my first post here as well). But I'd appreciate any constructive criticism you guys are willing to give...

    Well, after watching some of the preview clips here, I had to go and pick it up a couple days ago.. ha ha. Can't believe the sounds coming out of this thing for $40! Love the detailed textures, and also being able to drag things around the sound field in the Space tab. Seriously looking forward...

    Hello from Nashville!

    Thanks Andrew! I'm originally from Canada, but went to school in LA for an associates degree in guitar performance. Was more modern stuff, not much classical or jazz (although I wish I could play jazz.. ha ha)
