    Chris Hein Compact (extremely lifeless, and based on that, I didn't want to pop for the four pro versions)

    Is this just the brass? I was considering getting the pro versions of the four libraries at some point (i.e. my long term wishlist) as the demos sounded quite good to me. My main targets would be epic/cinematic orchestral arrangements, and maybe also in some tunes in the pop/rock genre.

    thanks for the thoughts - there's also the Samplemodelling route but I just want better sounds than even that. Plus it doesn't look like the Samplemodelling stuff ensembles well.

    If I remember correctly, Samplemodelling does sample libraries whereas Audio Modelling does instrument modelling; only saxophones though. Their philosophy would be that you can build your own ensemble to your exact requirements, at the cost of taking time.

  3. Really nice song!

    To me it has a calming/dreamy/surreal feel to it, and sounds like the type of song used in the game Life is Strange. (I mean that as a compliment).

  4. I enjoyed this.

    Very aptly named too: evocative, with the dancing synth parts sounding like twinkling stars, and the synth pad with the long-ish attack time sounding like waves breathing as they wash in and flow out. Good mix too.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. I'm very sorry for your loss.

    As bitflipper mentioned, don't hold back on making music if you feel you can; I read somewhere that creativity triggers chemicals in the brain that can help you to feel better.

  6. This is a good song Douglas. I think this has previously been mentioned, but it sounds to me like the cymbal crashes (open high hats?) when played successively are a tad loud, causing the compressor to pump the sound a little. Other than that minor point, it's a good mix. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thanks everyone; I'm glad you thought it was a good listen.

    The 2019 mix is definetly more clear. I like the song. Both mixes are fine IMHO. But if I had to pick one, it would be the 2019 mix for sure.

    Thanks Michael. It's good to know that the hours I've put into this hobby over the years have made me better at it.

    [Either that, or my newer plugins just sound good regardless of what settings I dial in 🙂]

    I have no visions anymore! I am disillusioned at all. There is no future when you are old, the world belongs to the younger ones! That's it!

    When it matters aim for the stars, even if you end up flat on your face; that way, at least you'll know you tried. (Disclaimer: just try and minimise the distance if you fall)

  9. So far I've been using Overloud's Tapedesk on my songs, with an instance on each (and every) track and bus, meaning that my project will typically have somewhere between 10-40 instances (as well as other plugins) active.

    Is this how IK's tape machines would be used, or is it a case of just using it on the master bus? I've heard that CPU usage is a little high.

  10. Some of you may remember this one; I thought I might redo a tune I did a few years ago, using some plugins I recently added to my collection. As usual, comments and feedback are welcome.

    Enjoy, and comment/like/subscribe if you feel inclined!
