    My first GPO project: Movie Trailer Demo

    For anyone interested, here is a link to my first GPO project:

    http://www.opusworks.com/audio/SPF_trailer_demo.mp3

    I re-orchestrated over last weekend, replacing the solo strings, brass, and woodwinds with GPO. I'd already used GOS in the fat string sections, but it didn't do the trick for the intro. GPO seems to!

    Other sounds you may hear: Giga500 percussion, Quantum Leap VOTA, and various unnatural sounding effects using an old emu Proteus/2 and a Yamaha TX81Z.

    I welcome feedback, criticism, and tips.

    Tips you say? Quit your day job and keep up the excellent work with your music. Very effective for a Movie Trailer. Is this part of a project in the works? I like.
    I am beginning to like this VOTA very much. Where can I find it?

    Great command of textures. Very effective!
    I couldn't give any criticism without seeing it placed to picture, but as a standalone mood piece, it touches me.

    I remember hearing that VOTA has a restriction on its use in movie trailers. You might want to read the license agreement. If EastWest has changed that policy let us know.

    Thanks all for the feedback. As far as an actual movie trailer, it was not. it was a demo for a gig supplying movie trailer-style tracks to a production music library. Thanks for the tip on the VOTA license. I will re-read the booklet that came with the CD.

    Styxx,
    EastWest's (formerly Quantum Leap?) Voices Of The Apocalypse was available from B&H Photo for about $405, but they report it out of stock.
    AudioMIDI has it for about $430:

    Nice work. I appreciate the juxtaposition of the acoustic insts. and the synths.

    Very nice...it has a wonderful "Ancient & Modern" feel to it. The voices do sound great!

    Good luck.
    Regards,

    AWESOME! Just amazing mix of orchestral and contemporary sounds! Well done, Sire! <bows>

    My only criticism is the attack on some of the ensemble strings....and maybe add some reverb to the bass drum near the beginning. But hey, who am I to talk? It's great as it is! Chord sequences at the beginning with the solo violin sound celtic and sometimes medieval (sp?) Great crescendo towards the end, the choirs really work very well and are mixed low enough not to sound unrealistic. I love the way the horn sections double up and grow towards the end. Also, try the odd snare roll near the start, just maybe every 8 bars or so.

    Thanks for sharing!

    <adds it to playlist)

    Regards,

    Kin,
    Do you mean the attacks in the very beginning when the ensemble is backing the solo violin, or after the first "stab" when the bass drum beat has begun?
