After hearing the many amazing demos of both VSL and EWQLSO (and GOS, Hunter, SI, SAM, and others), I am amazed at how good many of these demos sound in the hands of the talented composers here. It\'s nothing short of a revolution.
Will the dynamics of these new sample libraries change a composer\'s ability to break into the Hollywood/Film/TV scene? We hear great demos. Is Hollywood calling these composers? The demos show proof of talent, style, MIDI-mockup talents, orchestration, and musicality. What else does a composer do to get noticed? Can these libraries and broadband knock down the doors to moving to Hollywood? Can these libraries remove the paying your dues payment?
Without knowing the history of how the top film composers of today received their \"breaks,\" I suspect that today\'s libraries should make it easier for a young composer to get noticed. Did the first realistic orchestral mockups generate some interest in the film world?
I hope that these libraries (along with talent) help provide a springboard to those who dream of composing as a career. P.S. This is not for myself, I am older, a newbie, and just starting down this path and not planning on breaking into anything--except my piggy bank.
What do you think?
Is this OT?
