This evening i tried to record / improvise something with the orchestral template i recently built. It is a setup made in sonar 8.5, with more than 250 tracks. It comprises more or less every library i get (which actually are not so much): kontakt 5 orchestra and percussions, garritan personal orchestra, garritan instant orchestra, miroslav, rare instruments, some percussion from early patches, some instruments from komplete 8 (battery, african percussions). i have also recently bought an SSD drive in which i store my main libraries, that speeds up the loading time very much…

I began with the percussion track and i began to add stuff on the top… i ended up with 8 epic bars. I hope you like it… there is room for improvement and to build a “real” song in a trailer style. need some time to do this! :)

i recognize that having a template really speeds up the work a lot!

tell me your thought and comments!

Also having your songs used by successful videohive authors helps or having your song featured on main page.

Yeah, that’s the #1 in my rating. But the most difficult is to “convince” or find someone from VH to use you music. Any promotion in this sense was useless for me! My songs used in VH projects were all found by authors i never contacted before…

actually I feel that if you don’t have the right followers facebook or twitter are pretty useless (according to my experience!) i still did not figure out how to properly promoting my music so i don’t have any useful clue!

Hi! I succeded in finding a simsimiyya, a sort of harp. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simsimiyya

the manager from hotel in Aqaba (Al Qidra) helped in me in this search…

This is my frst try playing this instrument: https://soundcloud.com/bosone-2/simsimiyya-take-1

All was recorded (very fast…) with a zoom h4n in multitrack and then mixed in sonar 8.5 (all the sounds comes from this instrument…)

@bosone After this experience, I would agree with you. So where do you advertise? Google?

well, actually i gave up on advertising my cds! :( i tried also twitter and i found it may be more useful but you need the right followers and the right tags.
