#5121460 New blog entry about listening as a composer.

Posted by IK-Sound on 05 January 2014 - 01:24 PM

Yes, it's a good article.

But I think we must listen to our music not only as a listeners, but as a gamers. We create music for games and it is very important to be a gamer first. How would gamers listen to the theme? Will it interfere with the gameplay and irritate people? Will they remember the leitmotif or just dive into the atmosphere, created by our track?

It is very difficult issue. But I think that it is as hard as simple smile.png

Speaking of Eduardo Tarilonte.

I own "Forest Kingdom II" and "Era: Medieval Legends". There are some rare instruments. With the new Engine update it became more stable. As a result, scratches in convolution reverb are gone happy.png

 

And of course, the greatest library ever made: "Complete Composers Collection 2 Pro". Haven't bought it yet. But planning to do this next year smile.png .




#5111462 Your favourite sample libraries?

A couple from Eduardo Tarilonte.

Simply great libraries! But a bad, bad, very bad sampler Engine 2, which crashes permanently. It is impossible to work with it. PLAY Engine is a WAY better and more stable than this one ...

A bit of a tanget but it can become really easy to become a sample library junkie. Buying every new thing that is out instead of taking the time to really learn your current libraries. Any library can sound bad when used poorly.

I have to agreee with your words. But living in Moldova, a country with average income of 300 USD per month, you can hardly afford buying lots of new stuff. So here you cannot be a "sample library junkie" even if you want to wink.png

"8Dio - 8Dioboe" - it is hard to program, but has an absolutely amazing and charming oboe sounds!

"Cinesamples - Hollywoodwinds" - the best library for tonal/atonal wood runs. Suitable for every scene.

"EWQL Stormdrum 2 and 3" - the best epic drums ever.

"Orchestral Tools - The Glock" - the best glockenspiel ever.

"Cinesamples - Piano in Blue v.2" - the smoothest piano. Very comfortable :)

 

These are libraries I really proud for!




#5108035 Nearwood Suite

Posted by IK-Sound on 08 November 2013 - 11:51 PM

Good day!

 

My name's Arthur. I am music composer, sound designer and head of  "IK-Sound" studio.

I'm new here so at first I'd like to introduce you the orchestral soundtrack for casual hidden object / adventure game "Nearwood Collector's Edition".

We created all the music and sound effects, environment tracks, sound design for cutscenes, some additional voiceover and trailer sound design for this game.

I gathered gameplay and cutscenes music in one suite.

So, click on the image below and enjoy!
