YouTube shows a limited list of entries (rough guess is around 500, far from the total entries).Hi, I don't see my video on the youtube playlist ? Do they still putting ? Should I email them?
Bryan said he didn't have time to answer the emails, but he said everyone who followed the instructions on the top of the list is in.YouTube shows a limited list of entries (rough guess is around 500, far from the total entries).
I was just wishing the CueTube guys update their Excel before 8th so that everyone can check that their entry is here (and get rid of duplicates too).
But I guess that their brain is overwhelmed by watching so many entries.
This one is really my favorite and I love how the scales are integrated.Here is my entry. I wrote it with the 27-piece orchestra in mind using Infinite Woodwinds+Brass and Spitfire Chamber Strings (replaced by CSS for a few legato passages).
Thank you for your kind feedback!This one is really my favorite and I love how the scales are integrated.
Unfortunately, I somehow missed this whole competition, but I listened to most entries and there are lots of lovely scores. Good job, everybody. I always think Animation lends itself the best to varied and fun writing.
Even without the competition (let's face it, I wouldn't have won anyways) I thought about scoring this clip, but I might have tainted my blank page with all the input from the entries.
Some free gifts for everyone that took part and extra prizes for the top 3 winners (Metropolis Ark 1 and 2)
first of all, welcome to VI-Control!
Second, as a disclaimer: I am not an expert with respect to basically anything, so don't take my words (especially in the following) too seriously ...
I just listened to your entry (but only on my mobile phone, so I cannot really say a lot about the mixing etc.) and I quite enjoyed the composition in general. I liked that you basically sticked to a simple theme and played around it.
There were a few things that I noticed that could need some improvement (in my opinion): Sometimes it seems that your instruments are not playing together/in time. This seems especially noticeable in the faster passages. I obviously don't know what exactly you used for your mockup and how you made it, but the usual things to do are negative pre-delays/track delays for the individual tracks and sometimes you will have to manually nudge MIDI notes.
There was also something about your choice of percussion, but I cannot say exactly what (I've played percussion in orchestras for quite some time, so it just felt a bit off/unusual to me) - maybe the percussive effects where just a bit too much in total for my feeling.
Also, which virtual instruments are you using? In case you have bought some libraries, you really need to massage MIDI CCs a lot to make it sound realisitic (at least most of them - there are exceptions of course). If you are using stock instruments/plugins etc. you probably don't have the possibilities to do this. There are some other tricks you could do to make stock instruments sound more realisitic (e.g. playing around with volume and EQ modulation) but I wouldn't obsess too much in that case (Those sounds are many times simply not of the same quality as other stuff and if you put too much energy in it, you might lose your motivation all together).
In any case, it seems to me that you are really enjoying to compose and create music, so go on and continue to do it!
