Hey,

Got a couple of suggestions here.

Quite quirky, a little bit Danny Elfman: http://audiojungle.net/item/trick-or-treat-halloween-theme/2995234

Pretty intense and dramatic: http://audiojungle.net/item/the-apocalypse-is-coming/4784518

A couple of drum and bass loopable Halloween tunes if you want something a bit different: http://audiojungle.net/item/halloween-loop-mix-1/3147573 & http://audiojungle.net/item/halloween-loop-mix-2/3147608

Good luck :D

Sometimes optimizing means arrangement without instruments/sounds playing on vocal frequencies, sometimes it means some equalizing lowering colliding frequencies in music usually 2-6 kHZ. But I don’t know any universal preset for that… it’s like using presets for mastering music in software – very individual case.

Well I’ve learnt something today. Cheers :)

I mean creating version of track with equalisation of part of original spectrum with aim to clear it for voice.

I may be completely missing something here but what do you mean by voiceover optimized? From my experience, I don’t do anything to music that’s going to have a voice over, as the film editors just automate the volume themselves. For adverts and things I know ducking is used.

Ah I see! :)

The transition from Garageband to Logic makes sense, although as a seasoned user of Logic Pro 9, I’m not a fan of X, but you may like it. I know tons of film/tv composers that use and highly recommend Cubase, so maybe check that out too?

Hey!

I haven’t posted in here for aaaaaaages as I’ve been extremely busy, still finishing up my studies. I’ll be done in a few weeks though and will be around much more often with more great questions ;)

Anyway. Someone has asked me if they could purchase some of my music “exclusively”, meaning that I would take it down from various stock sites so it can no longer be sold and they can use it.

Does anyone have an idea of what sort of contract I would need to draw up for this? I’m assuming it’s not as simple as taking the music down, sending them the files and sending over an invoice?

Any answers would be much appreciated as always!

Cheers :)

p.s. What’s the Authors’ Hall of Fame?
