this is great click on the bell so i dont miss the other one. you really put life in those sample. one of the best i ever seen and iv seen quite a few. keep it coming.

This is pretty awesome stuff. It really sells the product for me. It just proves even the legacy gold edition can be used to produce more advanced compositions.

Jan Linden I own ewqlso gold, strings and brass gold. Having a blend of mics definitely lendsto more control. Such as divisi on surround microphone positions.
Jan Linden (3 months ago)
Absolutely. I wish I could afford the diamond still, but with some tweaking and good reverb/delay, you can definitely make the gold sound good too.

Man, you're a genius! The most beautiful music I've ever heard. Thank you so much!

Excellent work! How many midi tracks did you use and how did your system handled it? I've been seriously thinking about getting Cubase. I currently use Pro Tools 11 and find my system can't handle EW Hollywood Orchestra Gold very well. Thank you for sharing your masterpiece, it has truly inspired me! :)

Why do your orchestra sound so soft and smooth and mine (same libraries) sound so harsh? Especially the strings. What's the secret?
Jan Linden (4 months ago)
The secret is to take advantage of the controllers. Hollywood libraries for example use the modulation and expression controllers. Expression controls the timbre, or "the aggressiveness" of attack (using that rather than simply volume), and the modulation controls for example vibrato. Depends on the sample. Orchestra Gold uses the expression and velocity controllers. Again for the same reason. Don't use the mixer to control volume, rather, setup the mixer so that it realistically represents each instrument capacity in terms of volume, and then only use the controllers. In other words, if you cannot hear the flute over the brass, it's because you wouldn't hear it in the real world either. So instead of increasing the volume, increase the number of flutes.

this is great. really great. can u reply what your set up is. Also why did you state that your pieces will never be played by live orchestra. just curious ?. look forward to your answers. thanks
Jan Linden (5 months ago)
Thank you. My setup is an i5 with 24GB RAM, and a Keystation49. Regarding my previous comment about live performance, well, Orchestras are not easy to come by :)

What a beautiful composition! Congratulations

Well done, I like the intro with the horns....
Mark Warda (5 months ago)
Subscribed! Absolutely gorgeous melodic lines and lush harmonic modulations. I can easily track individual sections where the melody and harmony are traded and shared. Brilliant!
Clay LaHatte (5 months ago)
Amazing you do this after work. This is quite a feat. I am curious how long it took you to assemble this wonderful work? Thanks!
Jan Linden (5 months ago)
thank you. about a month

Very nice! Inspired by Gustav Holst? (The Planets)
Jürgen von der Haar (4 months ago)
That's true! ET has a great score, thanks to John Williams. Do you work in Cubase with key switches or expressionmaps for each instrument? I can not see that in the video ... :)
Jan Linden (5 months ago)
Thanks. Holst, sure. But the middle clarinet solo was inspired by John Williams when Eliot is standing by the freezer and ET has died. I always loved that clarinet solo.

silverlight2004db you are very kind. Thank you.

Excellent work. Very emotional / passionate / well written. So many possibilities. Reminds me of (classic) Star Trek or (classic) Battlestar Galactica. I wonder if you should try to sell it, or get paid somehow for your work. I hope nobody tries to steal it.
Kevin Goss (8 months ago)
Now THIS is a work of art! Beautiful.. So lush and immersive from beginning to end!!
Álvaro A. Lorite (9 months ago)
Hey Jan, I'm being serious. Would you be able to give any private lessons on how to achieve that level of realism? (apart from obviously orchestrating that well)
I would love a closer look at your workflow / orchestrating process. Of course I know it's different for everyone, but I've always loved picking up new tricks from people I admire, and MAN are you some sort of expert at this library. Cheers! :)
Jan Linden (9 months ago)
Hi, well, this is just a hobby mostly in the evenings after work. However, if i get more requests, maybe I could make a short video to show some of the tricks. Thanks

Beautiful music.
Sam Mohart (9 months ago)
This is awesome! This already sounds great just with virtual instruments, but imagine how this would sound with live players! Love it!

I really like how you set them all to the same colour....strangely it makes it clearer to see

Thanks. You like Cubase versus DP or Logic etc?
David E. Harris (10 months ago)
Thanks. Your music is great!
Jan Linden (10 months ago)
I tried various software when I started but found Cubase easiest to learn. It was also considerably cheaper as I only use Cubase Elements.
Tobias Scheel (11 months ago)
I come back here all the time cause this piece of art is just magnificent!!

Jay Sathya (11 months ago)
It's amazing! Do you write this on a notion software like Sybelius? Or is it just all midi note inputs on Cubase? If it was, did you play it and record on midi or did you pencil input it in? And what about the automations? What was your process like? I have so many questions because this is fantastic work! Please do reply.
Jan Linden (11 months ago)
Thanks! I used to use Finale, but since I'm not going to get an orchestra to perform this, I now use Cubase for a more realistic performance. It's all midi inputs recorded using a keyboard to a metronome, then I augment the tempo controller to make it sound realistic. On smaller compositions I don't bother with the metronome, just record it as it feels right. Once I get each phrase recorded, I then use Expression, Velocity and Modulation controllers to augment the samples for a realistic sound. No fancy equipment, just a lot of patience!

I'm speechless, truly breathtaking composition! bravo!
