If you’re actually looking for the best, I suggest:
8dio.com – incredible pianos, strings and much more
spitfireaudio.com – it’s all really good
EastWest Hollywood Strings and Brass is amazing and very feature packed
LASS 1 & 2 – LA Scoring Strings is a cheaper option but still very good
and for brass specifically http://cinesamples.com/product/cinebrass-pro
Beautiful piano libraries made by EastWest, Synthology and many more. Just do a little research and listen to the demos.
I’m sure I’ve suggested these to you last year before you changed your account name. Since then 8dio has released amazing libraries and those would be the first things I auditioned if I were you.
You seriously cannot go wrong with any of these brands and there has been outstanding material composed using these libraries here and on major movies/tv.
You will require a full version of Kontakt 5 for most of these libraries, the free player often doesn’t open them. Important to check system requirements of each library before purchase.
Nice one Dirk and Graham! Congrats to you both,
I hope too!
This whole day i spent enjoying the day and listening to this track..This is so amazing i dont have a words to describe..This guy is a genius (to me) Whole day im so motivated and feel so good because this track.http://audiojungle.net/item/sweet-bliss/9996428?WT.ac=weekly_feature&WT.z_author=JBlanks
Hey Calvin. Glad you have decided to stick around and I’m very happy to hear you have felt motivated because of my track
Just don’t play it backwards. It will unfortunately summon ancient Sumerian demons. And they’re real buzz killers. I had no idea this would occur when I wrote it. Going to be more careful next time I had to play Graham’s last 5 tracks on repeat just to appease their thirst for epic percussion.
Seriously, glad you are making more sales and staying motivated. I agree with Graham’s comments earlier. Wise words.
Thank you Scott, Luca, NoizMan, MeGusta and others. Dolla !
Also many congrats to MeGustaMusic for being weekly featured author!
Get a sense from the director how much music he intends to use in the movie. Hopefully you won’t be required to score the entire 2 hours! I’ve done documentaries with around 100 mins of music and it takes weeks to write, arrange and master that many tracks. Remember to allow time for revisions, there are always notes you’ll get from producer or director. Become good friends with the editor asap!
It’s really important to get a sense of the scope of project before you come up with a number. (And beware the dreaded “scope creep” effect when more chores are placed before than you had anticipated). Do a spotting session and figure out just how much work you’re undertaking.
Strongly recommend you do it for the experience, the credit and hopefully the fun you have while working on it.
Good luck Music Box – let us know what happens.
Thank you all for the kind words and congrats. Many thanks to the review team for selecting my track for a featured spot, it was very kind of you all and it’s much appreciated.
Thanks to Benji, Graham, Antonio, Phil, Toivo (I took your advice and dropped some banners. Thanks mate), Leon, beepcode, Music Box and all others who posted here.
I’ve been absorbed with non AJ work lately and looking forward to getting a chance this year to write a bit more new material. Wishing all authors much success in 2015. I’ve heard some great new music already this year.
PS. SemblanceProduction – Apologies if I didn’t answer your questions in past forum posts. Most likely I didn’t know the answer… Always here if you want to email me anything specific. Cheers JB
Deeply saddened to hear this. I saw Tangerine Dream live only a few months ago. RIP Mr Froese. Your music will not be forgotten.
