Well said Patrick; whenever I hear a choir these days I feel my eyes roll a little, as they seem to be an occasional part of the Percussion+Percussion+Horns+Staccato Strings EPIC formula. Not to say that they can’t be well used (the Williams example is a good one) but more often than not they are being thrown in to achieve a bigger sound cheaply and quickly…which is fine, but I feel like more composers could be using the full orchestral palette to achieve the same thing (Holst’s Mars?)...but then of course, you wouldn’t end up with the characteristic 2 Steps From Hell Sound sound everyone is lusting after these days.
I don’t really own too many choir patches but if I was in the market I might consider Cinesamples Voxos? Their stuff is usually pretty good.
Good job Mat! Always good to add some big-name clients to the old resume. And now that you’ve been named in the comments, you are probably good for a few hundred thousand views of exposure.
Like everything else, it probably depends on the reviewer? I had some reference to John Williams removed on one track, but another track has references to five composers – although those guys are long dead and in the public domain.
I think the approval time right now is around 8-10 days, and sometimes they will hold items for maybe up to 5 days? Probably nothing to worry about – in my experience they are just asking for a second opinion, and it’s usually on whether or not they should approve it or soft-reject.
I don’t know about the best, but I can tell you that Sonar’s is increasingly a pain, especially since X2 came out. I get the feeling that DIGITAL PERFORMER probably has a nice piano roll/midi sequencing. The best DAW is the one you like!
Hey Star, I don’t really understand your question, but good to see you. You were uploading like crazy for a while there but haven’t seen you upload anything in a few months.
I seem to average about one sale per month…so December seems to be like every other month.
Maybe one day I will boost it up to 2 sales a month! Positive Thinking
CLIMB THE HILL! TAKE THE MOUNTAIN! ect.
Damn, got excited there until I realized this was a fossil post.
From what little I understand, the Sun moves around the galactic center, but it too does not move in a linear path like the video is showing…it wobbles “up” and “down” as well…so the sun could also be said to move “in a spiral.” But I think locally, the affect is negligible, and the paths of the planets and sun are predictable enough to where we can figure out things like Lagrangian Points – which will come in handy if we ever decide to send manned spacecraft past the moon – calculate the flight path of probes so that they land on mars, ect.
