I bought it before the different versions happened (so it's "Pro"). These are all my own mixes. Oh wait actually the first was JJ's Mix 1.@Michaelt would you mind me asking if you are using Core or Pro on those tracks? The sound is absolutely wonderful and I'm just curious as to whether that's the benefit of the multi-mics, or just Pure Absolute Wizardry on your part (I mean, clearly a lot of Absolute Wizardry going on in either case!).
Beautiful! Love the Indiana Jones moments!I don't know if this qualifies, 15 year old EWQLSO only track. Only one mic position and zero EQ, reverb if I recall.
Listening now the composition and orchestration are so amazingly bad, as are many of the articulations especially the brass multi-tongue. String shorts are trash.
But the tone of the brass. The placement of the strings and woods and the way the percussion sits in the mix sounds very natural and live to me.. with zero effort. Many aspects of this I have still not been able to recreate using modern libraries.
I don’t get how you make every library you touch shine in just a couple of hours each. Magic.
It might take me a while but I'm into it. Kind of busy these days but it might be fun. I'd like to see if HOOPUS can hold it's own.Following a discussion with @Taron and @doctoremmet, here is the O.L.C. (One Library Challenge). It's not a competition by any means, but rather just a way to challenge yourself with a limited palette and encourage deep exploration of things you might already own.
The rules are simple:
* Use only one library per track.
* Clearly state what library you're using.
* Original compositions or mockups are welcome.
* The intention is to keep it primarily orchestral (or at least acoustic).
* Library collections (like Cinematic Studio Series etc) do not count as one library.
I'll kick it off with my latest two tracks here, both using BBC Symphony Orchestra.
Simply awesome, Michael T! Just beautiful.
The mics really make it much more versatile. I always found Mix1 very distant and roomy but loved the overall sound. Just adding the close mics makes a huge difference, and that’s just touching the surface. Looking forward to some HOOPUS from you when you get the time!It might take me a while but I'm into it. Kind of busy these days but it might be fun. I'd like to see if HOOPUS can hold it's own.
BBCSO I might admit. The pro version sounds way better than the core version. I was on the fence but the next sale I'm going to have to upgrade. Thanks for that.
