    CineBrass matching String Library

    What Libraries do blend well with the tonal comour of Cinebrass ? Cinematic Studio String seems a bit to warm. Cine Strings might be an option since it was developed by the same company as CineBrass.

    Orchestrating Low End and Chords

    I'm talking about Cinematic and Trailer Music. Synthetic Basses work well in combination with Basses and Cello in Octaves. Low Brass Patches always mud up my mix.

    Epic Heroic Theme - The God Emperor

    Working on my "trailer chops" - tried to put together a bit more heroic and epic layering at the end. Still a bit hard to figure out the mixing related troubles when it comes to this kind of stuff.

    Impact Soundworks Juggernaut - how does it hold up?

    Any good alternatives to Heavyocity's Gravity?

    Is there anything out there like Heavyocity's Gravity that is a nice all-in-one bundle of sfx with a big amount of tweakabilty? For making stuff like pads, pulses, hits, whooshes, risers, downers, soundscapes, etc. I like that Gravity has it all in one place with an awesome GUI. I also am not...

    Big trailer track (non-stop Trailer Brass pads!)

    Should You Compose Trailer Music?

    I say yes. I don't care how good or bad you are. You are never going to get to a higher level if you never take the risk. You have to get courageous and get to work. That is how Rock & Roll, Hip Hop, EDM, etc evolved. Just do the work and forget about if you sound bad. If you sound bad, put...
