    Something Sinister

    Something Sinister - here is the music only version of the song from Spellbound. I'll post the version with vocals after we've recorded them :P

    Regards to all,

    Thanks. Had to re-upload the file. I'd thought maybe it was a filename issue but it was just Smart FTP being a smartFTP!

    Anyway, the link works now

    Hi, Kinvint

    Energetic! Sounds great to me. What library did you use for the massive percussion? I think the strings and woods, maybe the piano are GPO?

    How is this recording being used? I mean, what's the venue?

    It really is massive! Good work!

    Great!!!

    I treid a couple of times in the past to get this file to open and had the same problems as others. Glad you got it fixed. There is a ton of energy in this and the contrast with the harp and all is beautiful.

    Can you break down the instrumentation for this and tell us what came from what library?

    Very well done

    It's so... Wow!!

    I'm on my second listen.

    Love the percussion!

    Thanks Randy, glad you liked it. The mix is a little hot (it was a rushed mix as I had to catch a flight!) so I'll be tweaking the automation when I get home next week. To answer your questions, just about each section uses GPO.

    Specifically, from GPO I used: Flute, piccolo, oboe, clarinet, Steinway piano, timps, ,harp, strings (full string section, viola, solo cello, pizz bass), F Horn Overlay FF, Trombone, Trumpet. However, to compliment the sounds and add further depth in an attempt to get a bigger sound, I also backed up GPO with sounds from another library. These are a 10 violin section and some brass (F Horn and trombone).

    The percussion is all Stormdrum.

    We are in NYC recording vocals this week so I'll post the mix when I get home. I long for Garritan Choirs since we have the choir parts all scored and ready to go.... Come on, Gary...our hearts yearn for the release of Garritan Choirs :-)

    Unfortunately, I am not able to reveal the venue until we've signed contracts because it's an Equity theatre. Once it's confirmed for the season I'll let ya know

    Thanks for the listen and your comments, as always

    How goes the preparations & rehearsals for Dorian?

    Kindest regards

Echoing Randy, It's sooo massive!! Wow. I think I'll have another listen!!

    Thanks Jon

    Glad the energy came through. It's a supposed to be a very powerful piece with a 'hopeful' ending. It's hard to really tell what's going on without the lyrics. I'll re-post it next week with the 2 characters' vox mixed in.

    Glad you liked it

    Thanks Ron!

    It took some fixing. I was having connection problems when I was uploading and althought it looked like the file was securely sitting there in the folder, it was, in fact, as you would say, 'not'. Thanks for going back and giving it another go after I got it fixed.

    Glad you like the contrast between the more sombre section and the rest of the mayhem. Dialogue actually goes in there so we had had to keep it down

    As far as a breakdown of the instruments used, you could look at my reply to Randy's reply which gives you an idea. I'm out of town at the moment so I can't load the file up in Cubase to give you the specific samples I used. Most woodwinds were the KS or solo V ones. I used 2 F Horns; The Ag FF Overlay and regular Overlay plus one from another library. Trombone the same, trumpet was solo trumpet x 2 with variation knob used in Kontakt. If you want more info, I can list them all when I get back home next week.

    Thanks for the listen and glad you liked it

    Kind regards
