    [Orchestral & Game Music] Lurking and Mystproj

    I've been working on some new arrangements of songs I composed originally around 2012 for Back to Saturn X, a Doom levelset for which these were originally written as MIDIs. I'd like to eventually put out an EP or album with a bunch of these arrangements, but each of them is a bit of a project...

    Hello, I would like to control multiple tracks with VSTs from one midi track in the way, that only one instrument plays at the same time. In other way I'd like to switch the track that MIDI track is connected to a few times during the song. Can I somehow do that?

    Is there a way to read MIDI note-off velocity in KSP ?

    It's all in the title, but let me elaborate just in case. You know how some fancy keyboards have release velocity - that is, they are sensitive to how fast you release a key? It's in the MIDI specifications, and it can be simulated in a MIDI sequencer (like Reaper's ;)) too. I was wondering if...

    Scoring to picture while keeping a human feel?

    Hi, I'm interested in how people approach scoring to picture to get a human feel and flow to their music. I use Logic and tend to record to a metronome, but then quantise my MIDI notes 'imperfectly (using the humanize function) to try and keep things a bit less rigid. The reason I do that is...

    Pushing EW Symphonic Choirs to the Max

    This is a cue from a short I scored. The director had a very specific vision but no budget for real singers, so I bought this library and programmed all the words in. I would love to know what an experienced ear thinks of the realism- any "tells" that make it obvious it was not a live choir...
