Am I hearing subtle pitch modulation in several of the soloed string examples...?
Perhaps it's just the way the pitch falls when combining one library with another. (There was a example with Spitfire SCS and LASS during which it sounded to me at though there was pitch modulation on the LASS track.) (Also, some of the bigger section examples had some sort of pitch artifacts that attracted my attention when soloed.)
Obviously, when the entire orch was playing, the pitch changes I hear were much harder to hear, and may have added a bit of realism to the recording. (No offense meant-AT ALL-to my actual human string playing pals!!!)
The vid is wonderful. Thanks for making it available here.
Thanks. I do it entirely in Cubase. I play some stuff in and draw other parts depending upon difficulty and how much forensic sculpting is needed.
Thanks for the feedback.
I'm guessing it takes quite some time to complete one of these pieces. Given the amount of programming, both real time, and manual-mouse based editing required, and even the actual note data, automation, orchestration, arranging, ..etc. can get quite complex. then the mixing, engineering, ..etc. but the important part is ... It all pays off at the end !
Oh... and I like your term : Forensic Sculpting
Loved it! F'n incredible to have such a detailed walk through from beginning to end. Just an honest strait forward walk through, not trying to hide or obscure any tricks or processes. (shows all the plugins used, how and where) What a breath of fresh air. You can sense a composer who can really write, b/c he's not obfuscating the process in mystery.
Simply awesome. Thanks!
Just finished watching it. Thank you. Probably one of the best You Tube videos I have ever watched. You have a brilliant tuition method. Will you be making anymore?
Thanks. I think I'll start incorporating more tutorials, although it wasn't what I was originally intending to do lots of when I ventured onto YouTube. I enjoy making music and videos and playing around with different instruments and genres. But I realise there's only so much of my music people will listen to before they want something that's of use to them, so I'll probably start balancing things with more tutorials so it's a two-way thing.
