  1. I will always remember the moment i heard this song. I listened to B&R to to this points with thoughts of "cool , great , well-made" and so on and then The Impressario started. I stopped the chat i was participating in before and my eyes, ears and smile got wider and wider. The 9 Minutes later my conclusion was: "This is the "best" song on the album and even the next ones can´t top THAT." Of course music is subjective. But for me it has proven to be that way. Enough said. No wait. One more thing: Thank you very much for "The Impressario" Mr. Kaufman!
  2. Yeah, you are right. I just got that revelation ( actually i remembered it ) that you can use a major-chord as dominant-chord to increase the pull to the prime. It is true that the rules of music theory are very loose but the reason why they are there ( so i was told ) is that it fits the taste of our ears, and for the start i want to understand theese basics. And thanks again for your reply i should get something done now!
  3. Thank you guys very much for your answers ( in advance because i just opened my browser and i am now going to analyse what you wrote)! The only thing that didnt made sense for me was the Bb at the 7th and 8th bar, but lets see if i am getting it now with the approaches of you two. I will report later on what i have learned. Edit: It is almost embarrassing... D minor makes total sense. I think i must have been totally mentally tired after spending 8 hours of working with cubase. I am also trying to speed up my workflow and i ran into problems with pitchbending and note expression. (Havent fou
  4. See TLDR for the short version + the midi i am talking about. I just checked the music composition&production forum and i was suprised that there are so few Threads but then i read the sticky of zircon that there has been some stuff sorted out. I hope that it is ok to ask such kind of questions here, since i want to seriously start remixing and to apply my theory into practical experience. For my background: - I play drums for 11 years (recently much e-drum - I used wikipedia and "the principals of orchestration" course of garritan online (i read it whole!) to get theoretical knowled
  5. So shreddage works inside the kontakt player which is a plugin VSTI, right? Good to know that it worked with Cubase 5 and 7, that sold it for me. =) Thanks for the answers , guys.
  6. I am thinking about to buy this one. The only question for me: Does this one work with cubase 6? I checked zircon´s post and the website but the only thing i see is "kontakt player". Is it a traditional VSTi plugin?
  7. Hmm, about that Guild Wars thingy: From all the instruments i have experienced up to know i would intuitively say that it is a Sitar (indish String Instrument) which is played in this track at a quite low register. When it comes to video game music i really like it in the Boss Music of Bastion (it is played on higher registers there.)
  8. Shame on you for almost got me to dance in my sportstudio when i first listened to BiB while my training! This song is a stand out and really lives upon the fact that your vocals are so damn enthusiastic. I love the "smooth as honey"-line after the breakdown when you get really energetic and drag it from low to high! Keep on groovin'!
  9. Thank you for your reply. Yes, because it is that coverish i wouldnt ask if it could be an official OCR track, but i think it is quite good to use this forums as feedback. I know what you mean with the guitars, it is an expression-thing of the bass-player, i also like the higher note in the original. I am just playing the harmonics of the melody.
  10. Hi everyone, when i have listened to the new remix-albums here on OCR i thought about posting my newest rmx/cover here. About me I am from germany and did some drum covers of other videogame stuff on my youtube channel. Five months ago i came in contact with a british bass player who asked me for a collab for this track and he did bass and most of the guitars on this one. It is surely not good enough for official OCR because it is a double-playthrough of the original and by that means not "really" creative (but we didnt play over the original and actually made a new midi track), but i hope
  11. Yeah, i just got through the Strings section yesterday and after googling all the words , everything became quite clear. It was really mind-opening , especially the chording of the Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass was great to know. Also i never knew what "Harmonics" where. I never thought about that stopping a string creates a colder flute like timbre, but when i read it through it totally makes sense and ive heard it a hundred times before. Finally, getting through this stuff needs some research on some terms, but its definite worth the time!
  12. @moseph: You brought me to an interesting thought: I really dont know how many horns are involved in the ensemble (so its called patch, not sample? ). So chording, them if they really contain all instruments of a given section of the orchestra, is indeed ridiculous. Unfortunately my manual is in the boxes from my last move from my flat, so i try to find some answers about this in the Motu Forum. But, taking not more than 2 ensemble patches of the same type similary sounds like a good rule of thumb.
  13. I thank you both for answering! @dannthr: Thats what ive done in my 2 attemps i made up till now. Ive done a melody based on a lead violin and one thats playing the bass tone ( maybe i switched to a string, i have to look ) and then orchestrated the melody with string and horn ensembles. ( maybe i chorded the horns as solo instruments, i really should look again into it, its been some time ...) Somehow i thought at first too: "Well i should just do what sounds good for ME" but then also theres that strive for perfection which i almost have when doing something. i dont now what you meant with
  14. Fortunately the Music Composition threads are overviewable ( is THAT an existing word? Sorry , i tend to use german grammar in my english ) and so after some search ( there was a thread close to my idea but not completely fitting ) i think i can do a thread about this without bringing out stuff which has been told in 347163458213 other threads before.(feel free to tell me if im wrong ) But lets get to the point. Ive got the following programs: Cubase Essential 5 and Mark of the Unicorn ( Motu ) Symphonic Instruments. For quite some months i want to compose something orchestral. I studied th
  15. I know this thread has some days upon its back and i think everyone has listen to the Black Mages version right now, which is one of their best ones, imo. Its also a track i allways wanted to do some Metal drumming for... after i did Grand Cross... =p
  16. it could be inspired by the Trigun ( the Anime ) OST where theres also such chaotic funky breakbeat music. It isnt that new to me as for, maybe, others , but its nontheless quite well executed and well done. I really love this remix!
  17. Hi everyone, ill try to keep this short, but i dont make promises Im Drumming since 8 years now and 4 of them also on an E-Drum ( V-Drum: Roland TD12 , samples of my work follow later on) My Music Experience: Im quite into older and newer Genre of Rock and Metal, im also used to rythms of many world music types, because im musicaly open minded. I really enjoy playing progressive music with odd time signatures ( 7/8th 7/4th and so on =) and my favourite bands are Dream Theater and Symphony X. My Game Experience: My first games i played on huge casettes on the C+4 then switching to the C64
