    Hi all Noob question here, I generally compose and arrange orchestral and cinematic music using libraries such Berlin Inspire and Metropolis Ark.

    CuBeatz samples - awesome quality & not much top end

    Yo, how can I make samples which will sound like these CuBeatz ones? They don't have much top end & they sound so clear and exciting. If I cut off high frequencies of my melodies to get similar results - it always sounds so muddy and low quality. How can I make my melodies to sound clear like...

    Maybe these questions are dumb, but here we go. I'm relatively new to this, so explain like I'm five. I'm kind of confused by the whole copyright thing. As I publish my tracks, they will ask me if I use samples from other tracks, which I don't. Nonetheless, "everything is 100% from me" is kind...

    Regarding Pre-recorded Atonal/Aleatoric/Cluster FX Libraries ...

    To preface, this subject falls somewhere between sample libraries, notation, and orchestration. I've recently come to my senses and realized that there are many aleatoric FX, etc. that bread and butter sample libraries don't typically come with. To clarify, I'm speaking not of pre-recorded...
