Topic: Maarten's Latest VSL demo

    Maarten\'s Latest VSL demo

    Fellow Board members,

    You have to check Maarten\'s latest VSL demo out.


    It really exposes the strings and IMHO sounds SOOOO real. I especially like the Legato Vlns at 2:16(I think). The \"ambience noise\" is icing on the cake. Very well done, Maarten. You are making me not want to wait for Nick\'s library. These performance tools have stepped it up to a whole new level.


    Edit: Sorry everyone. While all of Maarten\'s demo\'s are excellent, I was referring to \"Driving to the Cemetery.\"

    I agree that the VSL demos that you have composed sound absolutely wonderful.

    What do you know of QLSO that makes you \"doubt that this is the kind of music you would want to write with QLSO, though, but that\'s not up to me to judge in advance\".

    Just curious.

    What reverb did you use and by far more important what mixing setup did you use? I really like the sound! Sounds like the real thing!

    Are the ambience-sounds coming from Gigastrings? Or somewhere else?

    Can\'t wait till I get VSL!!!

    Reverb is Lexicon MPX500, 3 aux busses aka reverb ratios (dry:wet), in this demo.

    James newton for expression, I would think more along the lines of Thomas Newman or James Horner for intimate expression. Then again I have listened to little of JNH\'s work, any recommendations?

    P.S downloading the piece right now, will post my thoughts...

    Well, try the Atlantis and Dinosaur soundtracks. I keep playing them over and over, mostly for the orchestration and soundscape. But of course, this is very personal. Contain both intimate and some heavier parts. A bit too much Lion King influences in Dino, tho...
    Maybe Tob (big JNH fan) can jump in and can recommend some more good JNH scores?
