Spirit of the Wind Princess - Original Composition - EWQL Symphonic Orchestra Gold

427 ratings | 20952 views
A track I made, using ONLY instruments from East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra (EWQLSO). The idea was to put this legacy library through its paces, to determine if it can stack up to all the modern sample libraries that have been released since then. Inspired by Joe Hisaishi and his work with Studio Ghibli. Composed, programmed, and mixed by Jacob A. Cadmus. http://jacad79.wixsite.com/jacob-a-cadmus Made in Cockos REAPER 5.

Hi Jacob, it's a great composition, thanks for share! Could you help me? I see you use Reaper and EWQLSO and I want to know how I can play my midi compositions with EWQLSO in Reaper... But I've could not open EWQLSO instruments in Reaper... Oh please help me!!!!

+Jacob A. Cadmus Thank you!
Jacob A. Cadmus (12 days ago)
Thank you! Unfortunately I don't use Reaper anymore, as I have moved on to Logic Pro. Not sure whether you're on Windows or Mac, but this link is a helpful guide for both platforms. It's meant for Waves plugins, but the same rules apply to East West PLAY. - https://www.waves.com/support/how-to-find-your-plugins-in-reaper

This is great! Somehow it sometimes stylistically reminds me of Nobuo Uematsu's music as well. Nice.

Where'd you get the piano sound? I don't think it comes with EWQL.
Ron Moone (29 days ago)
It might be the Steinway B in the percussion>wood folder. It's still a terrific sounding piano with a small footprint, it stands up extremely well against the latest libs.

Not exactly the same chord, but the feeling is the same. I'm surprised you didn't take any inspiration : https://youtu.be/mvvFnR0kJFw?list=PLA69C1EEA3355844F&t=138 vs. https://youtu.be/9O0sql1hukg?t=46

I guess so? I've never listened to Dark Souls before.

anyone compared the gold vs platinum vs diamond editions of EWQL instruments?
Alex IG (2 months ago)
I think gold is good for background platinum for a orchestra only recording and diamond for badass soundtracks

This is beyond brilliant. You are a genius!

How does EWQL Symphonic Orchestra work? I mean, is this Software with it's own systems, programing and interface, or are these just fantastic samples that work with any composing program? If the latter, are there only certain programs that work with this?
Rainbow Friends (25 days ago)
You can use it as VST
Drinner D (5 months ago)
wow... I'm speechless. This is amazing, and most of all.. convincing! Incredible work!!
Very nice please for a tutorial!
ToastedCigar (7 months ago)
Very well done, I absolutely love this! Btw, how do you start the composition process? Do you figure out a good chord progression first on which to build the song, or do you start with the melody?

Jacob A. Cadmus (1 year ago)
Thanks! I used a modified version of the "Fusion" theme.

Hey there Jacob, how does Reaper hold up when you're using tens or even hundreds of instruments/channels? I know most composers use Cubase/Logic for orchestral stuff but I'm interested in Reaper as I've been reading lots of good things and how stable and customisable it is.   Considering its insanely low price point, I'm seriously consider investing in it, Cubase and other DAWs are way out of my budget at the moment. I just don't want to start learning a piece of software only to abandon it for a more expensive one a few years later. Great composition by the way!
Jacob A. Cadmus (1 year ago)
Yes Reaper has vst3. They also added a notation editor last year I think, though I haven't messed around with it all too much. I constantly switch back and forth between S1 and Reaper, though I have the pro version of S1. Worth it for the arranger and scratch pads alone.
nickardasis (1 year ago)
Have the added VST3 support? I'm not familiar with the latest updates so I'm not sure. Also is there an import/export feature for sheet music and is there a sheet editor (even a basic one)? Have you used Studio1 v3? The mid-range version is priced similarly to Reaper and S1 has been getting a lot of attention lately so I'm considering both these two DAWs. Thanks for the reply.
Jacob A. Cadmus (1 year ago)
I'd say go for it! I can confirm that Reaper is super stable, and also lightweight compared to other DAWs. The video engine is great too, making it easy to score to picture. The only downsides to watch out for are that it takes some time and frequent forum visits to set it up to your liking, and also the stock plugins aren't that great (best to have some 3rd party plugins at the ready).

With good sound editing skills and orchestration like this, EWQLSO can still make awesome tracks

Finally someone that knows what he's doing... Good stuff!
Samuel LE TONQUEZE (1 year ago)
I really like this piece !! I also use EWQLSO but the Gold version. Do you think that with Platinum it is worth much better?
Really incredible! I love the piece.

Holy s* that was awesome! You inspired me to keep composing and improve my skills.
GabeCastro (1 year ago)
Well done! I only just recently got my hands on Symphonic Orchestra and I can't believe what I've been missing out on. While the sound is certainly dated compared to Spitfire, Symphobia and more contemporary libraries, it's still very playable and usable. In fact, it's age makes it quick to load on your computer! And besides! as you've shown, it's not about the tools. It's the music! A wonderful track from an evergreen orchestra! :D

What a fantastic composition man, seriously. so much color, and the dynamics make the piece so moving!
Greedy Rick (1 year ago)
This is such an awesome composition! What do you think of the whole composer cloud thing? Do think its worth trying?
Jacob A. Cadmus (1 year ago)
Absolutely worth trying! If not for my hardware limitations, I would be using the Hollywood Orchestra via CC.
Remon (1 year ago)
very well done ! I am trying to get back into orchestral scoring and was wondering what your opinion of Reaper is for this type of work. What CPU are you using (multi core/thread?) ? Do you write using notation software first and if so, is there an integration of a reliable notation method in Reaper ? I am really looking for a program that let's me combine traditional scoring with MIDI CC editing. Thanks !
Jacob A. Cadmus (1 year ago)
Thanks! I'm running a Windows machine with a 3rd gen (ivy bridge) i7. Reaper works just fine for orchestral scoring; though not as feature-heavy as the big dawgs (ie. Cubase, Performer, Logic, etc.), Reaper gets better with every update. They recently added notation built in, so no external software is needed anymore. I rarely use it though, because I perform most of the parts on a MIDI keyboard and edit afterwards in the piano roll.

I first heard it on NG and didn't get to save it. thank God I found it such a beautiful piece
Peter Roos (1 year ago)
That's really excellent.
Gharun Lacy Music (1 year ago)
Well done, Jacob. As you have just proven, composition and orchestration are 100 times more important than the latest and greatest sample library. Hisaishi is a treasure, by the way. Hisaishi and Miyazaki go together like Spielburg and Williams.

yep..a friend of mine just bought chris hein ensemble strings..and they sound like shit to me..overloaded with too many effects not even sampled every note..not worth any money in my opinion

Jacob A. Cadmus - If your hands made this, they are definitely right.
Jacob A. Cadmus (1 year ago)
Hey thanks! Yeah these old libraries still hold up well in the right hands; not saying that my hands are right, but close enough I guess, haha.

It could go right into the movie, this is some amazing stuff!! Keep it up, I'm looking forward to checking more of your music!!:)
