Hi all hard-working musicians!
I got an opportunity to write one or several related articles for a mainstream newspaper about the developments of computer music technology, and how it has affected the music and entertainment industry, as well as the home user.
I would like to include something about how, for example, orchestral sample libraries have been used in the movies. Does anyone happen to know some blockbusters (or at least movies well-known internationally) that to a great degree have relied on sampled instruments for the underscore? (I mean, not only used for mock-ups in the pre-production stage, but actually used in the final score.)
Any input on this would be greatly appreciated, as I have found quite limited information on this after searching the Internet.
Spectrasonics had some good credits
(http://www.spectrasonics.net/companyinfo/film.php), but it would be valuable to be able to mention the movies that have used (orchestral) samples to the greatest degree.
Also read something about Media Ventures and Gladiator, but was not sure about the degree of samples that were used - except the real vocalists and Duduk flute etc.
