The Cello Machine

2013-08-23 19:33:23 by EvilRaccoon

Hello all! So I've been trying to play with sounds and trying to really widen my orchestra. I constantly listen to amazing pro stuff, and im still sick of how poor my stuff sounds. I thought i'd share some of my progress with you all in the conquest to really boost broadness to my instruments.

So I thought I would show what Im thinking of right now, I always wondered what it would be like to blend together a large array of samples. So I tried with a simple spicatto cello section. The section combines multiple libraries and blended together. See what you think, and comments are welcomed. :)

Hm ... the link doesnt work i think. I know what you mean if you say listening to all the professionals with their pro stuff just blows you away. I had the same feeling. You have got a good orchestra library - symphobia - right? Great sound. I was thinking about purchasing it but decided to buy hollywood brass and strings instead of it and absolutely love the sound - especially the french horn and celli legato and the flautando violins ... plz fix the link. I really would love to listen to it :D

EvilRaccoon responds:

Hey SoundChris, link fixed.

But yeah, I used a lot of symphobia, however HW Brass/strings sound incredible, a buy if I could afford the SSD's to load them on to.

Your stuff does not sound poor goddamnit! :D

*ahem* Well, it is nice to see you making progress anyways. This actually does sound like an actual string section. Keep it up!

EvilRaccoon responds:

Haha, thanks ToonDude! Always got to keep pushing new templates and better setups. Thanks so much!

You dont need a SSD - i thoght the same but it isnt necessary. I use Logic 64 bit mode and got 32 GB ram. I still have to load about 20 minutes a track if it is a really complex one - like this for ngadm round 2 - but when it has loaded everything works absolutely fine. I reccomend to build up n orchestra / cinematic pattern and just load it completely within 20 minutes and everything will be there instantly :D

EvilRaccoon responds:

I'll give it a thought then. How are you finding the play engine? So many people upset online it's hard to find a decent review of the existing HWbrass and strings.

I think i need to buy more ram too ;)

fantastic stuff man! also, those LASS spiccatos sound dope. I've been messing around with Albion, and I'm so very conflicted with how I want to set up my new template lol.

EvilRaccoon responds:

Yeah, it's difficult to choose between which one you want to use, im finding a combo of instruments give a good impression of large playing sections. This new template im working on will allow me to hopefully mix and match what packs when i feel like it, having it all pre loaded, its going to be a few weeks work to get there as each has it's on mixer channel but I think a good template helps alot.

Don't get discouraged. Lord's blessed you with amazing talent, and you're easily in my league.
