"Chimera's Grin" - Orchestral Rogue Theme

4 posts in this topic

I've done a few action-y, parkour-type assassin themes before so I wanted to go for a more mysterious, slightly "off" sound with this. Also wanted to bring it in a bit closer with the mics. Thank you for listening!

Hey there Flurry, thanks for listening and the kind words. The strings are samples (Spitfire Chamber Strings and Spitfire Sacconi Quartet) and for the realism I tend to spend a good amount of time on the programming. I play everything in by hand on the keyboard and control the MIDI CC faders in real time. I also try to play it with a performance in mind; I imagine the players in my mind bowing and try to emulate that. Finally, I write to the strength of the samples; I've gotten a lot of use out of them by now and so I know their strengths and limitations.
