    My first Orchestral Mockup

    After working 3 months on creating my first orchestral template, I finally made my first mockup. It's a try on Looks Like A Suicide from Dances with Wolves. Since I am very new to this kind of music any critic or advice is appreciated, still have a lot to learn about this. Especially when it...

    Mike from California

    Hi, I'm in the Bay Area, I just started with Logic Pro X. I'm writing music I'm submitting for trailers and soundtracks. My style is mostly symphonic, although I also play jazz and blues for fun (guitar). A big challenge has been getting 'contemporary' sounds to fit the current styles (action...

    Eastern Dream by Nektarios.

    After one year of creating my song "Eastern Dream", I finally released it and finished the music video for it. This song is about war and refugees and their struggle and dream to find a safer and better place. In my eyes, refugees from the Syrian war, Ukrainian war, or any war, are the same. So...

    SPAT vs Altiverb

    I've looked for a comparison, but have not found one for orchestral music. I'm trying to decide whether to go with Spat or Altiverb, but the decision is rather difficult. What do you think sound best for orchestral positioning and verb? 10Dman

    First orchestral work

    this is my first composition for any sort of orchestral ensemble. It's completely unfinished — I have the arc of much more in my head, so I'd say this all amounts to a thematic introduction if all goes to plan. I am 100% open to critique. Does it bore? Does it communicate? What is your...

    Hey, what's wrong with my Squared Origins?

    Hi Gents, I'm looking for feedback on a track that I wrote more than a year ago. Although I was satisfied with it as it matched well my intentions (bit ominous and dark, powerful and modern), it always seemed to be missing something. Something that I still can't figure out myself 1 year later...

    Film Scoring - Strings, Drums & Choirs

    I am looking for high quality samples of strings, choirs, and orchestral percussion designed for film scoring. What are your favorites? This may be a foolish question but, does anyone know of any that aren't $300-$400 a piece? I do want awesome quality, so I may just have to pay a high price...

    This is my first full length orchestral work with a virtual orchestra. It contains full woodwinds, brass, strings and percussion, and of course, a piano. The libraries are East West and the piano is a Yamaha C7 (9ft), chosen for its ability to cut through. The piece starts out as a romantic...

    Review Capriccio Orchestral Phrase Sample Library from Sonokinetic

    Spent sometime with Capriccio, Sonokinetic's latest Orchestral Phrase sample library. Purists may disagree, but my thought are that with Sonokinetic's phrase based libraries they have started a shift in the paradigm where you can no longer dismiss phrase based tools in the same way you can’t...

    Here's a whispy, swirling string passage I wrote

    About 8 months ago I wrote this as an exercise in mocking up some strings (cinestrings) which I would need leading up to some projects I had this year. It builds for most of the piece, and I ended up putting way more than thought than usual into the counterpoint/voice leading, and in that sense...
