This is my Shamisen, it was a gift from my mother in law, who tried to learn to play it but gave up. I break the “bachi” (pick) over and over. You can tell this is a good one because the grey dots on the head of the body are the cats nipples. Ewwww.
This is my Shakuhachi. I traveled to Tokyo and bought this used beauty. Here it is on the island in the middle of the Kizugawa river that I always would go meditate or make a camp fire or dick around or whatever.
I myself just got heavily into producing epic orchestral tracks as well. I use Kontact as my host, and I use Action Strings, Session Strings, and I use the stock brass section from the factory library. I have epic percussion as well and it’s OK I guess. If you are going from realism it’s pretty tough.I’ve been gone a while and I can’t remember if this counts as self promotion but here’s my latest track, and it’s the first track that I’m honestly convinced it sounds real. I’m always able to hear a little of this and that that sounds fake in synth orchestras, but I really feel like I got the hang of it on my newest one: http://audiojungle.net/item/the-nightmare-cometh/7093404 Tell me what you think! A lot of it is programming the different voices such as spiccato, sforzando, staccato, sustain, etc.
I opened my studio last year and it’s been going fine, but I’m starting to think it might be a good idea to brand myself as a producer outside of my studio. I was thinking of changing my name and branding and logo etc. to “Produced By Dano”, even make that my website for personal production. I spend 40 hours/week composing and recording these days and I’m always trying to think ahead. What do you folks think?
Hey all, I’m composing around 30 minutes of fantasy/epic orchestral music that I want to sell in pieces and as a continuous pack. I’m planning on including several character themes which run throughout the music. The idea is a plug and play score that the buyer can say, ok I like this theme for the princess and that theme for the pirate, that theme for the dark lord, etc., and have it all sound like one composer using themes for a complete score. My question is this: I know audiojungle has a policy of one remix per song allowed, but I was planning on putting each piece of connected work up for sale individually, so it might contain multiple elements from other tracks, maybe a slow sad princess theme, then a dangerous track of panic and escape that has parts from the princess theme but now coming fast, heroic marches, battle music, nightmare music, etc. How should I go about this? I’d love to release the 10 to 15 individual tracks and one giant pack with all of them but I don’t want to break the TOS.
Hey all, I’m producing a documentary and I need shots of baby sea turtles on the beach to cut away to. I can’t find any thus far. If you know of any or have some, put it up for sale and I will buy it!
I want to orchestrate and record perfectly a song at 3 different BPMs and include them as one file, but like, choose whether you want a fast, medium or slow, for like the same price. Do I just call it a pack, or a single file with multiple bpm? How do I do that? Thanks in advance!
