    Gap (from Dark Phoenix) by Hans Zimmer - Cover

    I got addicted to this theme/cue the moment I heard it in one of the released clips. I immediately started worked on a cover/mockup. Not perfect and I'm certainly not happy with the mix - had some limitations with my DAW and PC. Let me know what you think :) EDIT: Since I wasn't quite happy...

    My amatuer analysis of Hans Zimmer's "Time"

    Before watching Ashton's video on his analysis of the score for Inception, I probably would have omitted the word "Amateur" from the title. But alas, I'm not worthy! However, I think some people may still find this useful --coming from someone with less formal knowedge of music theory, and...

    Ambient remake of Time (Inception OST by Hans Zimmer)

    I did this remake some time ago, but revisited it and thought that it might be worth sharing. I really like the idea of making more ambient / atmospheric / dwelling minimalistic versions / mock-ups of classic tunes and Time is one of my all time favourites. One of my favourite combinations for...

    Hans Zimmer Percussion Demo

    A quick demo testing out the new SF library. Other than a tidbit of compression, this is completely dry out of the box. The samples themselves are like, surgically-perfect. Might be my new favorite perc library!

    Is Michael Giacchino replacing Hans Zimmer?

    Are we starting to dawn a new era with film scores? We've been under the domination of Hans Zimmer film scores for at least the past 7-10 years. Could we say we are starting to see this slip and Giacchino will be taking that spot? What do you think this will do for film music, since Giacchino...

    Spitfire HZ01 RAM Performance & Workflow

The demo seems to show about ~75MB RAM used up per mic, so if you...
