As you can hear, Kirk Hunter\'s strings is the weakest point :/ How do you think it would work with gigastrings? Can someone try layering gigastrings on it?
Oh and btw, my homepage has been is updated, so if you\'re interested there are a couple of new tracks up on http://home.online.no/~finjaco/ including \"Sunrise in Dragongate\", a heavily mediaventures inspired piece

Thanks! I spent 2 hours making this mock-up. Williams\' music is NOT as simple as it sounds (This piece has 26 midi channels in use)
The brass is from my personal library.
(PS! could anyone with Gigastrings please try and write the melody in violins (doubled in 8va) for me? (I want to hear how it sounds compared to Kirk Hunter) and mix it on top of my mp3? The piece is in 160 bpm.)
Again great work. I hope someday I have something to trade with you for some brass sounds they are still fantastic!
I have to say one thing about the strings. I did a quicky mock up of this theme back in the GOS beta period (before legato mode). I have to say I like GOS better. I\'m only saying this to say thank you, not to boast for GOS. I dont have KH, and have questioned how it would sound to me compared to GOS.
I did post the cue I did some time ago and I\'ll probably repost it if you want. Thing is, I dont have your ear...or your brass . PLus it was pre legato mode so there are \"holes\" which occur from the attack swells. I would definitely go back and do it correctly at some point, but no time right now.
on a weird note, the cue I did is ALSO 23 seconds long!
Sounds great! The melody in this section is played by 1st and 2nd Violins, Violas and Cellos in about 3 or 4 octaves. My version which was recorded from the score, used about 50 tracks. Unfortunately, my version doesn\'t have those excellent sounding horns. Love the slides in the french horn part! I used the Kirk Hunter Akai version on my original. Maybe one day I\'ll re-record the strings using GOS.
It just goes to show that if the arrangement is great, things can sound pretty real. This is a great example because the strings at the very beginning don\'t sound at all real, but when everything else is going, suddenly they sound pretty damn good! That amazing brass helps, and those flute runs sound really good as well.
