My Music for a Music Tech Course (lots of spectrasonics used) - link works now!
Little background first:
Ok, so its like the 3rd day of being on my new Music Technology course. There are 10 of us and only 1 person has had piano lessons and 2 of us (including me) only play by ear. I seem to have the best setup, even better than the college systems. They use halion and OH MY, it has SO much latency. Gigapiano makes strange clicking noises after converting it when i play it fast. Most of the \'others\' are either into \"rock\" music \"hip hop\" or \"drum and bass\". I didnt want to rock the boat and yell \"what about doing something orchestral?\", cos I know I wont get a good response. Anyway, the teacher gave us 3 drum loops and we had to pick one to make \"something\" with. I decided that since I wanted to be liked I would try and make something with these loops. I didn\'t get very far on their crummy setup so I emailed myself the work and have been doing it at home instead. Lets just say that the others haven\'t got access to spectrasonics or other great sounds, all these months of working is paying off!!
I hadn\'t worked with loops or grooves before so this was new for me. I think I did alright though. I wish I had Garritan for the strings but AO still sounds perfectly reasonable until I get it (especially for this kind of stuff). Also a shame that I don\'t have SAM horns yet.
Please have a listen and \'tell me what you think\'. I know you guys are all into making orchestral stuff, but I didn\'t really have a choice. Also could you tell me if the martin acoustic sounds ok, I\'m not a guitar player and I don\'t know if it sounds that that real or not. I mean I think it sounds fine but to others maybe... ?... you get the idea.
(its 128kbs cos mp3.com hasn\'t approved my file yet, it will be 192kbs, sounds great for 128 though)
Distorted Reality 1 and 2
AO and Upgrade (harp and sustained celli sec)
Symphony of Voices
Hanz Zimmer Guitars 1
Other drum samples: (Samples for the midi loops that were given to us)
Korg Trition - Analogue Strings
PS: Thank you Eric Persing for these great sounds! Other than gigapiano , a bit from AO , and my 1 triton sample its all spectrasonics! BTW, I missed you in Andertons in Guildford, UK on your spectrasonics tour earlier this year, I went the next day though but I didn\'t see any evidence that you had ever been there. Oh well. :-(

<font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Just like with GigaStudio, latency depends on the soundcard used. I use Halion myself, there is nothing wrong with it. In fact, I can get much more voices out of it than I could possibly get out of one instance of Gigastudio.
