Really good one. Glad 8dio decided for more demos in case of studio brass, especially when they received one like that! It's a pity they did not do the same with studio strings. The brass surely got my attention now
Thank you!!Beautiful, really enjoyed listening to it. 3 times
Btw what other instruments were used? Are you constrained to 8DIO when doing these is what I was wondering?
Thank you!!Good writing and fits the title, the brass sound nice Glad you got the freedom to express.
Very happy to hear that! Thank you. I'm always happy when someone gets a personal connection to something I wrote since that's the place it's coming from.I liked it a lot.
I got the impression that you had something real to say - which isn't often the case for me ((imho) - in many ways shallow and superficial world we are currently living in)).
It took me on a trip to somewhere and something. In this case I think I do not even want to know more; I am content with how it plucked the strings inside me. There are times when a bit of mystery is better than knowing it all.
Thank you and congratulations Lionel. Wish you the best in future endeavours.
I'm happy for you DarkestShadow. This is very nicely done.I'm very happy to have been picked for 8dio's demo composer team!
This is my first piece, I'll definitely be doing more in the future.
I've never written for many individual brass voices before, so this was a jump into cold water in the brass department.
I'm not sure what to think of the track - I'm proud of it and at the same find it quite odd in some ways.
I wanted to musically look at different aspects of the "secret admirer" subject.
The melancholic and deeply mournful aspect, some more light-hearted/comedic moments with somewhat sleezy trumpet lines and times of being lost in beautiful dreams and imaginations.
All in one piece and sometimes at the same time, so the plan.
Happy to know what you think.
Thanks!Damn this is great, and the brass sounds gorgeous!
Thank you!Beautiful piece !
I wish i was picked up as a demo writer !
Would you consider writing another one showcasing the strongest side of this library ?
For i have a feeling those brass lack a Forte ... from what i can hear on 8DIO's page ...
I initially had my problems with Studio Brass (part of it it was that I only had the close mics for in the BETA version), but I like it more and more. The legato is definitely super realistic and playable.Hey Lionel, thank you for sharing your demos. I wish 8Dio comes back to where they once were, releasing plenty of fresh and inspiring libraries like their Claire series (currently on sale) or their epic percussion... Hopefully their studio brass has the consistency of a decent sample library.
And I have to say, Troell's kind of pop music is really a music genre on its own
First post of mine btw, I was reading a lot here over the past months and now I can finally share my thoughts too.
Thanks!Nice piece. As others said, the brass is a bit hidden in the mix, but otherwise well done
Thank you Daniel! Happy you like it! + The mix.Lionel, this was so freakin' good, dude. So beautiful
Also, for what it's worth, I feel like the way you integrated/mixed the brass really highlighted its strengths.
Thank you! Yes, agree on that statement. It would have to be a different arrangement to make the brass stand out more naturally. But well, I'll put the music first because for the exposed and out of the box brass there are walkthroughs. But I could send 8dio naked versions when appropriate... I've seen that in the past for some of their products.I really love this demo! Very nicely done!
My two cents on the issue of mixing to bring the product to the forefront would be that mixing it isn't how to bring it to the forefront, that'll just make it jump out unnaturally, and the product isn't served by that at all. To put instruments on the forefront you compose that way. So that other instruments have been composed around the ones you want to show off to frame them well.
