A rough mix of my first attempt at an orchestral type track

This song is really fun. Even the vibes have dynamics.

Is this all stock ableton sounds? Or what plug ins do you use?

:)

It was made in Logic and off the top of my head I used Serum, Spire, Logic’s default sampler sound for the bass (secret tip), and Kontakt libraries Damage, Metropolis Ark 1, and Vocalise.

Nice one, Beats. I was in the orchestral mood myself the other day, and the result is this little cue. I really love imagining a scene, writing a short cue to match it and then calling it a day. It gives me the satisfaction of actually finishing something.

@ D3VOUR. Nice House track. :) I like the way it starts out and you can’t tell it’s going to be house. Makes me rethink how to approach my many failed attempts at House music.

@sporkles. :) and :x. :) because it’s a very nice score type track. :x because it made me realize my own track is less orchestral and more slapping orchestral sounds on my usual style.

Thanks! Did you use Kontakt for your track? That sample selection sounds solid.

Thanks. The main reason why I enjoy making that type of music is that it removes me entirely from my usual, trite creations. It allows me to set aside all inhibitions and fears of sounding cheesy. And because I don't have a background in instrumentation and composition, I keep "wow-ing" myself when I discover cool instrument combos, etc. :mrgreen:

Here's mine, though it's a new live set and not just a track:
