Hi everyone, I'm very glad to have found this forum! I started working with VI's... oh, maybe 10 years ago.. but I only had the free plug-ins you download from various places, and I played with writing melody and harmony lines in Band and a Box and then taking them into Tracktion and giving them life with those low-fi sounds. Then through making connections on songwriting forums I started to understand more about it, and started saving up to buy my first 'real' set of VI's - East West/Quantum Leap Silver. When I got it, I realized the computer I had would not support it. Then I saved up for a new computer. After that, I kept saving and about every three to six months I'd manage to get another set of VI's, like EW Gold, or Omnisphere etc. I worked on composing and had a lot of rejections.. it took me awhile to 'get' how to 'humanize' the VI's. I got myself a wind controller, which helped a lot. Anyways, my good old audio computer died in October, and I am just starting with a 'new' (rebuilt) one, I've upgraded to Tracktion 6, and just got Hollywood Strings and a bunch of other stuff via Composer Cloud. I'll have a bit of a learning curve understanding the articulations, when to use what.. I wish getting what is in my head out into sound was easier! Good to be here, thanks for reading - cheers.
