Get real! Or at least get your MIDI orchestra to SOUND real! Learn the art of creating realistic orchestral MIDI mockups in this inspiring course by the one and only Peter (Ski) Schwartz. Orchestral sample libraries are everywhere. You can buy cheap ones or you can shell out some serious cash for the top of the line libraries. And while the quality of your sample library is important, solid MIDI techniques can make ANY orchestral sample library sound more real. You just need to learn the tried and true methods that MIDI master and orchestral composer, Peter (Ski) Schwartz, reveals in this example-filled, information-packed, super-cool course!Think of it this way: The samples are the instruments… and we all know that instruments can't play themselves! The MIDI notes are the score… and the score is just a musical roadmap. So where does the “real” MUSIC come from? We’re talking about the all important stuff like expression, phrasing, dynamics and feeling that is key when you’re trying to emulate a room full of great musicians! Well, the answer is all in the artful programming of the MIDI CCs and all of the behind-the-scenes MIDI techniques that you, the virtual conductor, bring into the production! That’s exactly what Peter Schwartz explores and teaches you how to accomplish in this 40+ tutorial course!
Whether you're using a premium orchestral library like EastWest or the basic one that came with your DAW, this course, on enhancing orchestral realism, will guide and inspire you to make your orchestral productions as authentic-sounding as possible. So grab your virtual MIDI conductor’s baton, open up your favorite sample library and start making orchestral scores that are almost indistinguishable from the real thing!
