    Here is the first completed part(1 of 4) of my first attempt at a mockup. It's the theme from The Alamo composed by Dimitri Tiomkin. So far I'm not really enjoying this process. Too much time spent fiddling with volumes and timing and not enough time spent making actual music. This was...

    How do you get that orchestral film score sound?

    How do you get that orchestral film score sound? What are the key mixing elements to achieving that sound? It always seems "set back" and has a unique sound quality. Where do you aim to have peak dBFS and LUFS for the loudest part of a piece (in mixing and/or mastering) Do you apply any EQ...

Besides reverb, it's completely unmixed. Also I...
