In the City of Hope / piano-orchestral

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I'd like to share with you my new piano-orchestral composition In the City of Hope:

https://soundcloud.com/adam-matejko-698390533/in-the-city-of-hope

artworks-9hGTQ39fZcra0y22-gVBAFg-t500x50

DAW: Cakewalk by BandLab

Libraries: BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover by Spitfire Audio, Labs by Spitfire Audio, Cinematic Percussion by Spitfire Audio, The Free Orchestra by ProjectSAM

Noob question: how to put a soundcloud iframe directly in a post (instead of the usual link)?

Regards, Adam :)

Impressive.  I really enjoyed it.

Thank you for listening to my piece :) I am not a professional but I put a lot of heart and work into it.

Very awesome, your orchestral mix is good and the tune is interesting all the way through. What piano library did you use? 

What I do to embed the SoundCloud here is:
1. Go to the track on SoundCloud.
2. Click the "Share" button under the track.
3. Copy the URL.
4. Paste it here, and give it a few seconds. The forum software will recognize it and automatically create the player.
5. Add any other text under the player.

Graphics note: The player will use the middle portion of the cover graphics in the player, so you'll want to place any text like song title or other important/branding graphics in about the middle third. I had to experiment and re-upload to find the right positioning. When I got the text where I wanted it, I saved the graphics as a template (I'm using Gimp to create my cover graphics).

Hi, thank you for listening to my piece and for the SoundCloud embedding instructions :) I used two free piano libraries:

- Soft Piano by Spitfire Audio Labs (https://labs.spitfireaudio.com/soft-piano) for soft, background parts
- Piano One by SoundMagic (https://neovst.com/piano-one/) for solo, on top sounds

I also recommend:

- MonasteryGrand by MeldaProduction (https://www.meldaproduction.com/MonasteryGrand)

Adam, that was very smooth and relaxing . I loved the emotion of the intro , I got a somewhat sad but very relaxed feeling there. The outro tied it all together.

I don't think I could tell the difference between this , and a composition by a paid professional. Very impressive ..   mark

Thank you for your very nice and motivating words :) Everything in my music happens by accident (I have no music theory knowledge). I accidentally combined two separate themes and they fit together interestingly. I arranged the piano parts, then added the instruments layer by layer and I got the end result. It's simple but it took me two months :P

+1.  When I first replied, I thought this was a professional piece. I've tried a couple piano/orchestra pieces myself, but I thought what you accomplished was much higher quality.  I'd be curious to know more details about how you processed this (reverb used, compression if any, mixing, etc.).  Thanks!
