Just wanted to share with everyone here that I really love my orchestral samples.
I was working on something, a big orchestral piece, and as I was doing the final mix and listening to isolated orchestra sections I got this big smile on my face.
Why? Because it sounds so close to listening to isloated tracks of real orchestra recording.
Just 2 years ago this was so different. Most of the articulations you had could come down to short-long-piano-forte plus c11 riding. You had to dramaticly adjust your writing to what samples can do.
I still need to do that, but less and less every day. (still can\'t get those fast string arps and runs right [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ).
All this mumbo jumbo on the NS that is happening right now is just strange.
Here are some of my toughts, open for discussion, on this mather.
- One issue is inclusion of piano and VOTA snnipets in Silver and not included in Platinum.
So let me get this straight. You are a composer, forked out 3 grand for QLSO, but you don\'t have a decent piano allready?
- I don\'t see Z6 or the Moog Builder hiting VSL for their Opus1? Why? Maybe because VSL crew is smart enough not to hang around here?
- Garritan is great and Nick is a bastard attitude....umm..what does that have to do with you writing music? Seriously?
Gary is obviously a great guy, altough I don\'t know him, but still that will not make me use more then couple of patches from GOS,
or change my attitude that updates were nothing more then a marketing thing, and that GOS could have been the best string lib. IF they made another recording session and updated all the issues that GOS has..
As for Nick, I don\'t know him either...what I do know is that I can hear his work when I go to a local cinema, and that I can preview his libs in my local cinema.
I also know that him and Doug are the only ones who are offering their product in 3 versions. And this is something never done before.
My logic is, if I was starting up , I could invest 250$ , make some music earn 1000$, get a 1000$ lib, make some music, earn 3-5000$ and get the big library. But thats just me.
How can someone with an completly average talent, doing music as hobby invest 3000$ or 5000$ in samples is tottaly beyond me.
I don\'t have QLSO, and I don\'t plan to get it in near feature, simply because VSL route suits my way of working and composing better, and I don\'t have enough horsepower to use both.
But I don\'t have the need to go and tell people on every bloody post that VSL rules.
Doubt that anyone will read this...but still, had to let it out a bit..
I love my samples, the better they get more I learn about orchestration.. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
