I should be recieving most of it within a week or so -- I hope. Of course, I won\'t be able to run any of it because I\'m still trying to decide what to do about hardware. I really want to go mobile. But I can\'t freakin\' decide what to buy! Once I do decide which system to get then I\'ll have to wait for it (assuming I get it online) or, at the very least, wait for the echo soundcard I\'m planning on getting. I\'d order it right away so as to not have to wait, but I\'m still a bit scared of the mobile idea I guess.
I\'m also worried about signing for the packages and all because I\'m NEVER home (which is why I\'m so determined to go mobile.) I guess when I get the little FedEx or UPS note on the door or whatever, I\'ll have to call them and find out where I can go pick my stuff up...or something like that.
Anyhow, here\'s what I got (If anyone cares):
Garritan strings & Giga bundle
Sam Horns + Solo Horns
Vota and it\'s utitly
For percussion I\'m going to use the stuff I already have for now. Then, in a bit, I\'ll spring for some percussion set...though I\'m not sure which right now (maybe the EWQL. Or LOP.)
And you can betchyer bottom dollar I\'ll be getting Sam Trumpets when it comes out.
Anyhow, I\'m still waiting on customer feedback and more demos for EWQL. If they continue to impress and everything seems well in that regard, I\'ll probably get that whole collection early next year, or sometime, as well. But for a starting point, I\'m pretty happy with what I\'ve decided upon. (Mostly because of price. I\'ll have, pretty much, the full orchestra I\'ll need for under 2k)
VSL I\'m gonna have to wait on until I have better income (I am a poor starving college student, after all.)
Once I get everything and get some demos together, I\'ll get a website up and let y\'all hear some of my stuff. After all, I have such a big mouth when it comes to music that I really ought to put my money where my mouth is...so to speak.... It really shouldn\'t take too long because my first project will be simply to take some of my other midi projects and use the giga sounds to redo them. It\'ll take a bunch of tweaking...adding controllers, remixing, etc...but shouldn\'t be too bad.
At any rate, I\'m extremely excited!! I wish I could tell you all the next project I\'m going to be working on...but I\'m under NDC. But it\'s going to be really cool (at least I INTEND it to be really cool.) [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
