My story of ordering it and installing it (and a few comments about the software). I routinely update, or is it upgrade (?) Komplete from Native Instruments. I almost immediately went to the website to pre-order it as soon as it was announced. The product page said nothing about the possibility that some libraries/programs would […]
Komplete Control is software that allows Komplete 9 & Komplete 10 users the ability to find sounds in one central location. So, I just got it and put together a video showing some of its main features. See the video Subscribe to me on YouTube to keep up with my latest videos like this.
Komplete Ultimate 9 Native Instruments Komplete Ultimate For those that might be new to the world of creating music all on your computer or new to the world of synthesis and sampling, I thought a brief mention of what I use would be in order. There are many very good comparable products available from many […]
Session Strings Pro Animator Revisited Back in 2011 I did a YouTube video showing the Animator function of Session Strings Pro. It was a quick overview and not terribly detailed. At the request of a few people, I’ve come back to the Animator to take a more detailed look. The video is intended as a […]
Driver Plugin Native Instruments came out with a free (through 12/31/2012) plugin called Driver. I did a first-look video of it on YouTube [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zd2VZsK6btM] Hope you enjoy it. Please check out my website for free sheet music and links to all 6 of my currently available albums.
I’ve uploaded a new video to YouTube. This is a recording of the piece What Wondrous Love Is This that I arranged for orchestra. The hymn tune is from the early 1800’s in Appalachia and is found in Southern Harmony, 1835. It is still used today in many churches and instrumental versions, like this, are also used in […]
This video is now available on YouTube. In it we look at how to use the Reaper DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) along with VST software instruments and MIDI to record and produce a song. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc1kkJQcLyQ?hl=en&fs=1] This features VST instruments Plex2, FM8 and Massive. The piece is entirely done in MIDI. The video also looks […]
Native instruments released a big update, almost like a new version, of their entire Abbey Roads Drums series. The names now add the word Drummer to them. The new versions add the mixer and grove parts of their Studio Drummer product. The entire series update includes the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and Modern drums. I put […]
Not too long ago, Native Instruments released a free instrument based on their Reaktor platform. It is called Skanner. I put together a quick demo of the instrument. The recording uses only instruments from Skanner.
News A quick post to let everyone know what’s new. A few new titles on the website, some new mp3 files and sheet music to one of those recordings. See our other posts for the latest YouTube videos. I am soliciting suggestions for future videos. What would you like to see? Some categories I have […]
New Video I’ve uploaded a new video to YouTube. The soundtrack is an original piece originally written as a school assignment (years ago) to accompany a section of a cartoon. It has since undergone some revision. The music was written for Flutes (including Alto), Saxophones, French Horn, Trumpets, Guitar, Electric bass, drums and piano. The somewhat […]
After considerable difficulty with video cap and editing software, I’ve finally gotten two new videos done. I decided to make an arrangement. I did it in Sibelius 7 and Reaper. The first video shows the process of making the arrangement. This arrangement was for violin, cello, piano, guitar, bass and drums. The 2nd video shows […]
I posted a video showing some of the features of Session Strings Pro that is shipped with Komplete 8 Ultimate. (I’m not sure if it also ships with just Komplete 8). [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXCc-JPbQ6U?hl=en&fs=1] The video should give you an idea of what is possible with the animator feature. The original material is basic block chords. […]
