ZREO Twilight Symphony Announced.

Recommended Posts

Not sure if y'all have heard the news yet, but ZREO's latest project--Twilight Symphony--has been officially announced. The news released is featured on Destructiod and OSV along with some previews of the tracks. This project is going to be amazing and will be even more amazing if they get a real choir to record.

They are trying to raise money on their Kickstarter page to hire a full choir for this project. I thought I'd spread the word around to help them out. Also, there are plans for the overture to be performed live by PLAY! A Video Game Symphony concert

Wow. This is awesome. It wasn't entirely clear to me, however about the instruments. Is it still going to be virtual instruments?

It would cost an ungodly amount of money to book an orchestra to record that much music, so I'm guessing aside from the choir, yeah, the rest will be VSTS :)

Those are some pretty decent VSTi's so I'm still looking forward to this. There is just no substitute for the real thing, though. Maybe somebody in the community will get filthy rich, and we'll eventually have a full live orchestra playing for an OCR album :D

Hey guys. We're using a variety of cutting edge libraries, as well as live instruments recorded specifically for this project and placed into the mix as sweeteners where appropriate. If we're unhappy w/ the way a sampled instrument sounds, we strive to replace it with the real deal -- within reason. We've managed to squeeze a lot of realism out of our samples -- of course, it is never a substitute for a live orchestra, but I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised w/ what we've been able to accomplish. That said, a live choir would certainly put it over the top. Live orchestra, not a realistic goal. Live choir? Sure! So why not? Thanks for your support guys! We're all big OCRemix fans and love the community and work being done here.

That's awesome that you guys are being so thorough in choosing the samples. I didn't see any release date speculation. When do expect to be finished?

Thanks man! Actually, I think the article over at Original Sound Version mentioned the Summer 2011 target. We're aiming to be finished by Spring.

Wouldn't it be far cheaper to use this?

The live choir is neat and all, but seems awful expensive considering the rest of the project wont be live recorded. This stuff is pretty darn convincing if it works as good as the website's samples (and what I've heard from virt's stuff using it)

Another suggestion if you don't quite make your goal is maybe rally up volunteers on the internet to sing parts and then just tie them together like a live choir.

But heres hoping you achieve what you set out for!

They revealed this project a long time ago.

Anyway, here's hoping it turns out to be more like the redone tracks on the OoT album and not like the rest of the stuff there.
