Okay, so after working on this for 20 hours I've decided that this is the best I can do with this piece just now. I'm not 100% happy with it which is a shame because I think this piece could be the really good but every time I think I know what the piece needs it just never sounds right. So...
Hoa everyone. I haven't done much orchestral music although I hope that will change soon with a few purchases that I have done lately. Here I bring you one of the most recent tests using libraries such as Audiobro Modern Scoring Strings, NI Damage, NI Action Strikes, etc.
I hope you like it...

Went back to a piece that I had started some time last year. I think this is starting to sound pretty good. A few sections I'm not sure about but there's some ideas I think that are quite good. Let me know what you all think :emoji_slight_smile:

Hello everyone !
So i've been listening a lot of epic hybrid orchestral music lately, and i thought it would be a good idea to give a try making one myself.
Some of you will understand from where i took inspiration.
I used in order
Woods : Berlin (just the flutes and piccolo for accents and...

Edit: I'm happy to announce the Big Bang Orchestra: Andromeda Expansion
BBO: Andromeda’s Con Sordino Expansion Set focuses on the quiet side of the orchestra:
Con Sordino, played very softly in the range from pianississimo to mezzopiano.

I created this piece for a competition and thought I would share it here.
The track is called "Call of the King", and my intent was to make it sound heroic and powerful.
Let me know what you think!
... 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...

Jaeger (Main Strings)
Metropolis Ark 1 (Brass, Choir, Spiccato Strings)
At the loudest part in your compositions, do you Programm the complete orchestra playing fff or do you keep the lower stuff softer and the higher instruments louder ?
And is it true that orchestral instruments should be played softer in order to sound better/fuller ?
If you play brass softer...

This is a demo track that I've composed as an audition for the "Day of Dragons" video game.
The music had to be inspired by "How To Train Your Dragon" films' soundtracks.
Another composer is now officially hired, so I decided to share my work with the world and maybe get some...

Spitfire Chamber Strings
Right, so I'm composing for a fan video game project at the minute, which for the most part has been going well so far, but I've been asked to score a level that previously had no music. It has to be a minute-long loop of combat music that evokes massive frenetic tension and danger. The...
I have read in many forums about the difficulty of using 'Hans Zimmer Strings - Spitfire' in more 'classic' productions, so I wanted to do this experiment by producing the famous 'Sarabande' by George Frideric Handel using this library together with 'Forzo' for brass instruments...
