    Need help with Logic Pro: How can you do... "that"?

    I've loaded the bbcso template for logic to study and steal some ideas but there's "that" thing that I don't even know how to call... Basically what happens is that starting from a track with a plugin with active GUI if I change track the GUI changes in the instrument of the new track. With my...

    Hoopus vs bbcso black friday

    Hello! BF is coming around and I've been looking at all-in-one orchestral libraries for that are around 500USD or less. So far from what I've gathered, HOOPUS and BBCSO have been recommended at their sale prices. If you could pick one, which one, and why? If you have another recommendation...

    Orchestral library for Film/game music (BBCSO Vs ?)

    I'd like to buy my first orchestral library this BF or Christmas. I'm interested in writing music for games/film. Regarding my tastes at the moment: John Williams - Hedwig's Theme Howard Shore - Old Friends David Arnold - Opening Titles (BBC series Sherlock) Jeremy Soule - Reign of the Septims...

    Star Wars - Luke&Leia Mockup using only BBCSO

    After watching the new Berlin Orchestra, I just wanted to know how well BBCSO Pro has the balance and placement of the orchestra. So I made a quick mockup by excerpting a part of Luke & Leia from John Williams. I think it has a quite good natural volume balance. (But it's not perfect) Composers...

    Orchestral piece inspired by Western film scores - feedback welcome!

    I've always been fascinated by the famous scores from classic Western movies. From The Magnificent Seven (Elmer Bernstein) to Once Upon a Time in the West (the great Ennio Morricone), these scores evoked vastness, hope and adventure through memorable melodies and beautiful orchestration. This...

    BBCSO "Host Tempo" Trigger?

    Hello all, Just bought BBCSO in the Spitfire sale (my first sample library). Anyone heard tell of "Host Tempo" articulation triggering? Doesn't even exist in the manual!

    First orchestral library purchase decision

    Hi! I'm trying to decide which orchestral library to start. There is the Spitfire spring sale going on right now, and I'm thinking about the BBCSO but I'm not sure what to do. I'm not new to orchestration, I have studied it and scored more than a few songs. I would like a library that I can...

    BBCSO Pro custom mix based on real mixes?

    I'm planning on getting BBCSO Pro next time it's on sale. Mixing is a huge factor into how much I like a recording. BBCSO Pro has an unprecedented amount of mic positions to emulate real recording styles. I'm wondering if anyone has mic signal combo suggestions to get the kind of sound I want...

    Mac Mini Intel or M1 for Spitfire BBC Symphony Orchestra Core?

    I am thinking of getting a Mac Mini to replace my laptop (which has 12 GB of memory and the most underpowered i7 in existence). I know that M1 is fast but like many, I have concerns about the memory limit. I have not seen enough examples to confirm the speculation that the M1 RAM is twice as...

    Using BBCSO without staccato articulatons

    Just started digging into BBCSO Core. I noticed that the brass doesn't have a staccato patch, just a staccatissimo one. The included patch doesn't really sound authentic as a short note patch. Is making the piano roll note super short with the staccatissimo patch the only way to get short notes...

    REVIEW: BBCSO Professional by Spitfire Audio

    EDIT: after posting, I found out this library will be updated in the coming weeks and I WILL revise this review where necessary after the updates.

  17. Bluemount Score

    ... I've probably listened to too much "Mars" (BBCSO, CSB and NI Symphony Series composition)

    ... and of course I don't even dare to compare it to Gustav Holsts original, but it must have been an inspiration in some parts. This track is almost a year old, not in 5/4 and a rather traditional approach (?) to the overused term of "epic music", therefore I somewhat tried to keep it realistic...

    Short comedy waltz made with BBCSO!

    Concerto for Hyperorchestra, 1st movement - (not film music)

    This is the 1st of four movements of my in progress Concerto. It was scored using BBCSO, Orbis, IRCAM Prepared Piano, and Pianoteq 6. It's a quiet, brooding pieces with many spaces. As it's mixed in binaural, it's best listened to with headphones.

    Gustav Holst - Mars (Mockup, beginning)

    Please be generous with me here! :shocked: Second time I try a mockup. I made this for practice reasons by only watching and listening to an orchestral performance on YouTube, no sheet papers etc. Therefore, some instruments are missing for sure. Besides reverb, it's completely unmixed. Also I...

    20th Century Fox Intro Music (mock-up) CSS, CSB, NISS Percussion, BBCSO

    I randomly had this theme stuck in my head for the last weeks or so. Made a quick cover yesterday, to maybe get rid of that. Orchestration is not 100% like the real thing, but close. I think the Cinematic Studio Sound fits pretty well. Winds (barely audible, but there is a flute, oboe and...
