Dreams come true you say? well, sometimes this can be a problem…
5-10 tracks was also the limit for me, even with the orchestral mockups, because of the already premixed libraries. I would have “violin section” as one VSTi instead of 8 individual mics + 3 stage mics and 1 room, but now I had to really record the whole brass band. Was a first for me
Here is a YouTube video cut from a Christmas concert with the mix I made:
Sometimes you need not to cover for cheap sounds, but to cover for a lot of people, as in orchestra, as in “wall of sound” the classical way, not the rediscovered technique. I very much doubt that is possible to achieve orchestral sound with two violins playing the part 1 and 2 (instead of the typical 12-16 first violin and 8-12 the second violin).
Thanks guys for the feedback. So, I feel less of a freak now
Many libraries come already sort of pre-mixed, as in, you have a whole section of violins or horns…etc, sometimes you have 2-3 microphone positions to mix, but you don’t actually have each track to mix (ex. a violin section of 16 people = 8 close mics, 3 stage mics, 1 or 2 or more room mics).
I think those Hollywood film projects or the classical orchestral music would use several hundreds of tracks.
I’m curios how many tracks do you have usually in your mix? and how many instruments?
I just finished my biggest project so far (non AJ) with a brass band/ marching band + a band + a choir… my computer couldn’t mix all those tracks, so I had to make sub-groups, and render to wav, so, instead of 4 tracks for cornets I have just one, instead of 4 tracks for horns, again one (stereo)... and so on (drums also, but there I cheated and made midi + VSTi).
Anyway, even with sub-groups I ended with 20 tracks…
Here are going just parallel monologues where both parts ignore each-other.
On one side there is the video author that ran into an issue and didn’t understand how to solve it (send the codes to the buyer? send an e-mail to AdRev to “whitelist” the buyer?).
On the other side, the music authors that don’t want to understand that filling in the codes for 50 videos per client is quite a time consuming job (and time = money) and a client would rather ditch a company than fill those themselves.
The arguments fly around WITHOUT any reason. The video makes keep saying that “it cheeky to make money out of MY videos” completely ignoring the 10 times when music authors said “when you put the code we don’t make any money”.
On another hand, we have the Envato staff being announced and asked for an answer and they completely ignore us all too.
In a typical manner I see this whole thread locked up, someone from staff saying something like “write to support” and we, all of us, will get no answer or solutions on how to deal with that in the future.
This is how amplifiers work, or guitar pedals.
I hear the watermark as well.
Here’s a new… well, it’s actually a complete VSTi, based on samples of orchestral hand cymbals.
Hand Crash is a set of 5 sampled orchestral cymbals. It contains 10 stereo samples from the University of Iowa Electronic Music Studios public domain library:
5 orchestral crash cymbals.
Stereo 24-bit samples.
VST 32 and 64-bit for Windows.
VST for Mac.
Audio Unit for Mac.
