Yep, another new article is now up. Hope you’ll enjoy it.

I’m also looking for suggestions on additional topics to cover. Requests, anyone?

    You’re amazing!

    I’ve wondered about your take on layering samples for lushness. Is it just trial and error, or do you have some kind of thought process (e.g. specific sonic cues to listen for) to get your results? I’ve fiddled with layering but can’t quite wrap my head around it.

    Thanks Otto!

    You know what, I’ll add that to my list of potential AMA questions. It’s not really something I could write a whole article about 🙂

    You briefly touched on it, but I’m interested in how you handle gain staging. If you have an very large orchestra and chorus, how do you go from say a flute solo over light strings to everyone playing fortissimo and then back to another flute solo over light strings. How much of it do you handle on the midi front end as opposed to the audio back end. Thx

      I try to handle as much as I can with audio levels. Working with midi velocity and expression is just for setting the relative dynamics and levels within a part.

    Curious about how to mix both orchrestra and synthesizer sounds together…particularly violin, cello, flute, oboe, piccolo, trumpets/brass, saw synthesizer synthesizer, bass synthesizer, mallet synthesizer, and bass guitar and electric guitar, and piano.
