    NKR, UACC & Default or Standard Midi Spec CC usage for Kontakt Libraries. COMMENTS PLEASE!

    Hi all, On the Controller interfacing with software front, things seem too be slowly improving, with NI putting forward NKR and the SpitfireAudio UACC, and these are welcomed, as universality and consistency are what made MIDI so universally useful rather than proprietary brand specific...

    Wonder Woman Ideas Suite

    This is musically what I have envisioned for Wonder Woman. Sort of a cross between Ravel and Alex North, though the latter won't seem apparent until I develop this piece further. At this point, this is just a Prelude featuring hints of the larger theme for WW. Used OT Ark I and II, Symphonic...

    Whatever happened to Spitfire Phobos?

    I was waiting with anticipation after NAMM 2016 for Phobos 2016. And then a year passed. NAMM 2017 passed. And then it disappeared from the Spitfire website last week. Has it met with the scythe?

    Predator OST "Payback time" - Alan Silvestri - Mock up

    Hiya, As a big fan of Alan Silvestri and Predator, I had a pop at mocking up one of the cues from the score with a bunch of libraries. Was a really useful learning tool. It contains great orchestration and a heck of a lot of mileage from small ideas thrown around the orchestra. Harmony is...

    Spitfire, When are we getting legato updates? I'm desperate for a more wide-ranging legato. :) The only problems I've ever had: Legato patches which aren't practical to use at most moderate speeds. (it's at very least on the slow side) No fast legatos outside the clarinet. A Mural 3 "runs"...

    NEW SONG!

    Hi, This is an UN MIXED song for a Requiem I have been asked to do. It's quite difficult to get the balances exactly between the orchestra and the choir. I think this is because the choir has P's and S's so at times the voices jump out and at others it can be a bit quiet. So, this is a basic...

    Here's a composition I started on the night of the Paris attacks... I wanted to keep it pretty barebones when it came to orchestration.
