I use Komplete 8 quite a bit. Also recently got East West Quantum Leap bundle with symphonic orchestra, pianos gold, storm drum 2, Goliath, symphonic choirs with vota, and voices of passion. I still find myself going back to the Native Instruments pianos though. If you’re thinking of getting into ewql, I recommend symphonic orchestra. The brass and woodwind stuff is quite good. I use Session Strings for most of my strings now. I’m lazy. Lol
Welcome! Here’s hoping you sell a ton. Going to go listen to your stuff now.
Congrats man! Makes for a happy week.
Post a link to the finished product so we can all partake!
The voice over work in that vid made me wish I wasn’t from Nebraska. lol
I was wondering how people typically provide onscreen credit for the musicians here. I thought maybe have his/her name under “Stock Music” but what if I use multiple pieces by different people? Do I list each title? Does anyone have an example I can look at?Thank you.
Thanks for working to credit the authors!
I recommend limiting. Maybe that’s what you’re talking about, but just in case, this is an excerpt from the link above.
You can turn your compressor into a limiter by putting the ratio to its highest value, or at least a higher value than 10:1. By having such a high value, any sound that reaches the threshold is completely squashed down. The threshold therefore acts as the limit of the sound signal and limits the signal from going any further.
I’m not advocating the limiter over the compressor in any way, as both processors serve their purposes. It’s just good to know that although a limiter sounds pretty destructive on paper, cutting off large pieces of your signal, in the end it can actually sound a lot cleaner. Not only great for mastering and overall level boosts, but can help with various mixing tasks as well.
Hope that helps. Not that I’ve achieved anything close to the “perfect” volume. Have you looked at Waves Mastering plugins?
Ugh. That sucks. I know the feeling. I was doing a project for a singer songwriter. Brought in all these musicians over the course of time, and dropped the hard drive six months into the project. Figured it would be no biggie. Opened the backup, and somehow had lost that too. That was painful. So thankful for Carbonite. No such thing back then.
Started my huge Native Instruments service center updates last night before bed, so I wouldn’t have to waste time with it during the day. What do I see when I get up and check the computer this AM? “Service Center has stopped responding. What do you want Windows do do?” ARRRRRGH !!!! The best part is, it had to have happened about two seconds after I left the room, because the download progress bars hadn’t moved from where I last saw them. So classic.
You’ll go days without a sale, think nobody likes your crap and think about deleting your profile…
spoken like a creative mind. I’m so manic. When sales are up (and I’ve only had three here, so clearly I’m speaking from zero experience) I’m elated. When sales are down, I assume my stuff is crap. Lol! Love the bit about deleting the profile.
