  1. Right now I don't use much reverb at all besides a little bit of reverb included with plugins, sometimes. It's doable since my libraries are all recorded in decent sized spaces.
  2. We're two albums away from a Spider-Man 3 score album.
  3. Not going to lie, Metropolis Ark 1 looks really solid for anyone just starting out.
  4. I was hoping for the Berlin Series to be on sale again. I don't understand Orchestral Tools' logic with such infrequent sales. All it does is helps their competitors.
  5. Cinematic Studio Series is on sale for 25 percent off. In regards to programming, these libraries are the best of the best. The tone is also spot-on for a lot of use cases. I personally think Cinematic Studio Woodwinds is the best-sounding woodwind library out there. Surprised to not see any discussion of Cinematic Studio Brass here yet. Be warned, they are a bit dry. Making a custom mic mix with the room and main mics turned up all the way helps a lot. Cinematic Studio Percussion is slated for release next year or in 2024. https://cinematicstudioseries.com/ Cinesamples is having an insane 65 percent off sale! https://cinesamples.com/
  6. Hollywood Orchestra Opus Edition is on sale for 60 percent off. https://www.soundsonline.com/orchestral/hollywood-orchestra-opus-edition If you want a cheap choir, check out Spitfire Originals Epic Choir. Only 30 dollars. https://www.spitfireaudio.com/originals-epic-choir
  7. Another reason why composers should own dual copyright of their own music in "work for hire" situations
  8. Somehow, I only own one Thomas Newman score! It's "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events". I've heard loads of his music on streaming and in movies. My only Trevor Jones is "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". My only Randy Edelman is "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor". My only Olivier Deriviere is "Remember Me". My only Mark McKenzie is "The Greatest Miracle". My only Elliot Goldenthal is "Batman Forever". My only Basil Poledouris is "Starship Troopers". Of course, I'm familiar with his "Conan the Barbarian" music but don't own it yet. My only Craig Armstrong is "The Incredible Hulk". My only Johann Johannsson is "The Theory of Everything" My only Joel McNeely is "Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire". My only John Barry is "Dances With Wolves". Yea, it's embarrassing to only have one Barry score. I've heard a lot more from these composers via music streaming.
  9. I'm not all that fond of Williams' concert music either. I wish he would channel his soundtrack style into it.
  10. Just throwing this out there in case anyone wants to help out. There is a horror soundtrack documentary that needs about $2,000 more of a $40,000 budget with 8 hours to go. If they don't meet the criteria in 8 hours, they won't get a penny of the money raised. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/scoredtodeathmovie/scored-to-death-the-dark-art-of-scary-movie-music
  11. Wikipedia's sourcing requirements have made me angry so many times. I can't count how many times I added information that was completely factual, only for it to be deleted by a page-watcher who accused me of "original research". Because obviously, every fact about soundtracks will be published by reputable sources? Of course not!
  12. The horn patch's legato that I used is a bit sluggish. Not much can be done other than space out more notes. I thought the tone was very similar to the recording.
  13. * Cinematic Studio Strings 1.7, which added an updated legato mode (I think I used it right?) * Randy's Celeste, the only legit Harry Potter celeste sample * Tom Holkenborg's Brass - 6 horn patch There was next to no programming here. Just out of the box MIDI playback with pre-delay adjustments.
  14. This one ended up sounding a lot more legit than expected https://soundcloud.com/user-855915569/hp-1-logo
  15. Everything has to be connected nowadays. James Bond Cinematic Universe
