Thats actually a great idea. Mihai I did enjoy some of the samples in garritan. I might take a look at that also. Basicly Im trying to build my library to get my foot in the door. I Mostly right orchestral scores/progressive/industrial metal. Im hoping that buying miroslav will at least give me the basic tools I need to start bringing a little revenue.
Ok so I broke down and Got miroslav. I disagree with some of the negative feedback with miroslav. Granted its not the best. However I was impressed with a good majority of the quality of the samples included. There are some in the bank that I will stay from however because of the low quality but I think this will do the trick for me. thanks for the help!
I have about 230$ to spend on a new vst and I want to go orchestral. Im looking for something decent. Scratch Miroslav and EWSO for personal reasons. any suggestions?
I can understand the 80’s being an influence. Rush is what pretty much started me on my road as a musician. It gave me a taste for music that is unique and and out of the mainstream. I notice that because prog music has been such an influence that I tend to write like the music I like. I am In love with odd time signatures and polyrythms.
And I started listening to music with the group offspring) and then another, nirvana, limp bizkit, korn, system of a dawn, deftones. I was inspired by these groups and now I’ll compose music, I try to work out their own unique style.
I remember the offspring! used to listen to them as a kid. Its great to see all of the different inspirations that started people on music. I know with my self, my love of video game music is still as strong as it is today and it still inspires me.
I can absolutely see how that would inspire you. Star wars has a very unique orchestral score. I was blown away by the scores specifically on the most recent trilogy. The piece that starts the darth maul fight still send chills up my back.
I always enjoy hearing about how other folks got into the music industry. As for my self, I started at the age of 13 as a drummer. At 13 I had seen a concert video of the band “rush” and after seeing Neil peart I knew that I wanted to play drums. 13 years later the that same fire is still with me and about 5 years ago I started to compose music electronically via flstudio. Oddly enough, I was inspired to compose music by the amazing scores that I had encountered in video games, specifically final fantasy 7. As cheesy as it sounds, Nobuo Uematsu lit a fire under me by his amazing scores and the moment that I learned about electronic music composition I soaked up all I could to learn about how to properly write and compose music. I am still learning daily and am thankful that I am still inspired just like the first day that I had started. It has been a rough road but my real life experience in percussion has been a great blessing to me for a good foundation for my orchestral scores as well as my compositions that are geared more towards a progressive metal genre. What is your story?
No problem musicservice . For those who are not to keen on East West symphonic choirs, what are the cons of the program? Basically right now I am working with free soundfonts and I am willing to forgo a little quality to be able to utilize the “Text to choir” function. I think that has some major implications…however I dont want to spend 600 bucks on it if it sounds horrible.
Thank you. Does 8dio have the text to choir function?
Now that I have gotten over the hurdle of getting my first composition accepted, I am in the market to buy professional grade vsts. In a few days I will be buying flstudios signature bundle that comes packed with vst goodies. I however am looking for professional grade orchestral instruments. I am eyeballing East West Hollywood strings for the actual orchestral instruments them selves and East west symphonic choir because it has that amazing Text to choir ability(Extremely excited.) For those who might have gotten these products, am I investing my money in a good place here?
