    Looking for Folk / country sample libraries

    Hi everyone, I hope all is well and staying safe and healthy out there. I have a quick question. I'm currently directing/co-composing a documentary film called The Hills I Call Home, which takes place in the middle of the American Appalachian mountains, and it covers a small community in...

    Why on earth don't I have sample modeling brass yet?

    Well actually I think I have an answer after a night of scouring the web for demos: most of the demos i found are either not very helpful for the type of music I want to write with them right now (more traditional orchestral stuff) or they are simply horrible demos. Aside from a few short and...

    "Samples", Copyright, EULAs and Licensing.

    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...

    I'm looking for some Bulgarian choir samples or it is just my bad interpretation of the actual style, but I hope you get what I mean from the tracks. Does something like that actually exist, because I couldn't find much on the internet. Looking for something in the style of this: (2:12) or...

    Pricing your virtual instruments/sample libraries...

    How does one go about pricing their virtual instruments? Say you found a really cool sounding piano or something, recorded it, and concluded there's some cool and unique content in there worth selling to the world. What next? I'd assume you'd go through something like Kontakt hub, but how can...

    Sony Room Tone : how to use it ?

    Hi everyone ! I discovered this freebie recently and was a bit puzzled at first. I guess it is meant to add an element of realism and cohesiveness to a mix made of perfectly processed virtual libraries. I read someone's comment that said it added some kind of subtle "texture" to the sound...

    [QUESTION] Which Orchestral Libraries are a must-have for film/game scoring?
