    Fantasy piece inspired by Joe Hisaishi

    Finally had some downtime and decided to write a piece inspired by Joe Hisaishi's mesmerizing scores to some of my favourite manga: Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away.

    What are your favorite / workhorse Hollywood Strings articulations / patches?

    People keep mentioning how unwieldy HS is in terms of patches, so I'd thought I'd ask and see if it's a case of there being a lot of gold (or diamonds...) in a handful of patches that are hard to find amidst all the countless variations, or if it's a case of "they're all good, there's just a lot...

    Spitfire Studio Strings Vs Hollywood Strings

    The professional version of Studio Strings seems to cover the "gap" between Hollywood Strings and LASS, it has many articulations (even more than hollywood strings) and the flexibility of the divisi from LASS; LASS doesn't have all those articulations and hollywood strings doesn't have divisi in...

    CSS for more intense music? (and a question about the dynamics)

    Hey guys, I recently got CSS and it's a quite nice library, but I was wondering, what dynamics is CSS recorded at? Is it somewhere from p to ff? I like the sound of the library, though I find that they can't go that loud, or is that just me? (with CC1/Modwheel all the way up) I obviously don't...

    First track I wrote in 2017. Last couple of weeks where a bit tough so I was in a dark mood when I wrote this. The orginal idea was I would keep it going for another couple of minutes, but I feel things are looking good again so I decided to just finish it :)
