I am highly influienced by Hans Zimmer, but this because I listen to his scores A LOT (even when I am sleeping, almost every night LOL) I just love the stuff, and I guess it kind of shows in my work sometimes. As you can probably tell, I am an aspiring hollywood film composer. :P
The library is GPO, with a few free giga/kontakt patches from the internet. (for percussion, mixed with the GPO percussion)
hehe thanks. What's G-Town percussion? I've seen in mentioned once or twice on the forum but that's about it. No SAM free brass, the brass is all GPO. I tried to use the free brass patches once, but all I could get them to do was play a few notes, like only 3-4 were available.
The percussion is the SAM free dark fx, toms, alchemystudio "mighty hits" (not free anymore, but they were when i got them) plus GPO Timp cymbals, and percussion toys... a free frame drum, and a few other things.
G-Town Church project is a project recorded by Tobias Marberger, and released under Creative Commons license. He recorded it in a church, with lots of reverb. It has a church organ, stomps, prepared piano FX, overblown flutes, metal percussion, bongos, snares, and more.
Very nice Your Zimmer passion indeed shows. Been listening to Pirates 2 lately by any chance? Over and over again?
I've been trying to get some Zimmer-sound out of GPO myself too, but I'm lacking the time to polish up any of the stuff so far.
Did get myself StormDrum, which you really want to throw into the mix if you're going for the big, no, huge Hollywood sound, trust me
Hope I'll be able to post some of my own work here some day, but I am my own toughest critic, and usually end up hating my own pieces. So until I don't, I won't
Very, very dramatic writing. Definately in the style of "Z" but also your own. Great lush scoring and use of the GPO and other libraries/patches. I like the way that you take your time building and working and idea.
