Ever since the first day that the percussion and the piano was released, I long hoped for Hans Zimmer Strings. Was Alan Meyerson involved with this project?

A thing i hope would be possible in the future would be microtuning (best via importing .tun files).
Not sure if that would be even possible with such huge libraries but in general i wonder often about the lack of options for easy microtuning, especially if a tool is about experimentation and breaking rules.
I learned the hard way that all the live midi tuners are worthless here and there is really no better way as .tun file or .scl and kbm file import (but .tun files seems the best for me).
I mean i find it even hard to use within Kontakt but the own engine seems not even offer tuning options beside inside the western scale. But maybe it´s too niche inside a niche to be worth the afford for developers?

The adverts are pretty short on details about what’s in the book? Can’t find anywhere... how can I know if I care to get the book if I don’t know what it contains?

I received a free copy at the event. Inside there are mostly pictures of the recording session.

I'm 50 now....it's all over!
They should show another video about an hour later after drinking all the wine and eating all the cheese- They’re all snoring, asleep...still on the couches. That’s going to be me in two weeks on my 49th birthday. LOL

I’m extremely blessed to be living in a very nice house in a very nice neighborhood, but even so, I would bet that Hans’ studio is worth more than my entire house. LOL

I'm still in the middle of watching the video, but would like to say thanks for sharing this publicly.
I wouldn't be surprised if this was exclusively included in the HZS preorder book.

Anne Dudley. Lesley Barber. And more, I'm sure. But I guess you mean A+++ list, right?
Don't forget Debbie Wiseman eg Haunted, Wolf Hall etc.

One does have to wonder why so few A List projects go to female composers. Is it due to:

1. Less in the field

2. Less able to commit long-term to the treadmill due to family life (yes despite equality many still biologically feel the urge or social pressure to place more importance on other things)

3. Barriers such as being female in a very male dominated hierarchy

A certain Mr Wein***n tells you all you need to know about the powerbrokers in the film world, still...

And no black, no French, no Italian, no Portuguese, no transsexuel, maybe no vegetarian etc... I'm sorry, but I'm tired of this...
It's disingenuous to equate gender inequality with representation of nationality and dietary preferences. In the US in 2017 there were technically MORE women than men so it's legitimate to note that in a sampling of 6 composers there is no female.

As far as I know HZ does what he wants. I don't see any prob, In this forum probably 90 % are men, and in a forum of my wife there are 100 % of women, What do you recommand to do ? Did you notice that almost everything if not everything you use in your modern life was invented by... Men, stop using them, no more car, tv, phone, computer, camera, etc... ! I'm sorry for you...

Well, since (my estimation) no more than 2% of composers doing the kind of music we are concerned with (no matter a-list films, productionmusic or unbiased robot administered sites like soundcloud- just type composer and behold...) it would be far stranger if there would be equal representation on the table. No clue why that is... Odd and unexplainable as far as I'm concerned.
