Hi all, recently midphase started a great thread on Sampled Orchestra Tricks along those lines I was wondering if people could share any knowledge that leads to getting a great sound, in terms of production. (In other words, in the mixing and mastering of a piece as opposed to the orchestration.)
Alternately, perhaps you have a link to a famous composer talking about his or her \"sound\" and how they go about getting it. On that note, if anyone know how Bill Brown achieves his production I would LOVE to hear it! (I know he employs more and more live players now, but I think there is more to his sound quality than that.)
I know this is a fairly broad way to approach a complex topic, but for example I do hear of suggestions like rolling off frequencies between 200 and 400 hz to clean up the \"mud\" in the mix - a list of tips like these would be very helpful.
Edit: [It looks like midphase has inspired us as Rob Elliot has started another thread on Orchestral arranging devices [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] ]
