  1. This sounds very exciting! I look forward to seeing more of this.
  2. CineBrass CORE + PRO bought! Looking forward to using them! :)

  3. I completed the survey, and I'm interesting in seeing what the final results will be.
  4. Technical Issues - The Bane of a Digital Composer.

  5. Typically, in a modern orchestra there are four Timpanis. From what I can see, rhythm won't be a problem however the notes being played might be. From the Young Composers Wiki: If given enough time, a Timpani player can however re-tune the instrument for a new key.
  6. In my opinion, one of the most important parts of composition is being able to convert the music you hear in your head to the piano. It's a very helpful skill, but doesn't come immediately (rather difficult once melodies become advanced.^^) What I usually like to do however when writing melodies is to look at a piano from a top-down perspective. From here, it's sort of like making lines between each notes and forming patterns. I use this most prominently when doing notation. Out of these two techniques I use, I'd recommend getting better at the first one. If all else fails, go for a walk at someplace nice. :D
  7. Rest In Piece, Sir Richard Attenborough.

  8. Much like everyone else, I leave my old unfinished work as it is. Every so often I'll take a look at it to see what I wrote like, but I think it's best to keep it as a learning/progress document. Some things let me think, "Huh, why on Earth would I do that?". Overall it's interesting to see how much I've grown as a composer. Especially looking at old tracks that don't have mastering, mixing, or anything on them. :musicwhistle:
  9. First time I tried to download this (two or so months ago) I got a warning from my antivirus, so I think I'm just going to stay with Notion.
  10. Thinking about Mural or Cinematic Strings....

  11. Whenever I get stuck on a piece, I leave it for a while. As I like to call it, I've run out of 'creative fuel'. I might leave it for twenty minutes, maybe a day, but once the 'creative fuel' is filled up again it hits me unexpectedly. A lot of the time I'll be browsing the Internet and be playing random stuff, and that's when I'll get the, "Oh, that sounded pretty cool!". It's a matter of time and a clear, relaxed mind. But much like what others said: look at what you have so far, pick out the best parts and base go from there.
  12. Huh, this is quite bizarre. Is there anyway you could document this? I'm just trying to visualize what could be causing the error. Note that I don't have Logic however.
  13. Writing a Pirate tune, yarr!

      What shall we do with the drunken sailor?

  14. Sorry, I should have been more specific when I said gliding. I understand glissando (and portamento for strings), but meant gliding in that of the movement, not in the form of theory/articulation. Thank you for your input, just what I needed to confirm my assumptions! :)
  15. I love Howard Shore for his orchestration (grand stuff!), he really knows how to use an orchestra. I've yet to actually write something that's specifically going to be played, but looking at all the staves for an orchestra can be quite daunting. However, that's where the fun happens! What goes there, what can happen here, oh maybe I'll add this in...
