  1. I would love to get in to scoring for games, can I get advice?

    Well here is what I have now, my main workstation by far is Reason and I love it! The sequencer is fantastic, and I can build any synth sound you can imagine. That being said, I can NOT find decent sample libraries for Strings, Choir's. etc. So I have been thinking of picking up Cubase. I also have Pro tools 9, but boy does it suck for composing. I LOVE it for mixing. Ok here is my list Native Instruments Komplete 5 (I am planning to upgrade to Komplete 8 ultimate when i save a few more pennies) Waves Studio Classics Waves GTR Music Production Toolkit for Pro tools MOTU Machfive 2 MOTU BPM MOTU Ethno (the older version not V two) MOTU Electric Keys MOTU Symphonic Native Instruments Maschine (I LOVE this thing!) Propellerheads Reason 6 Propellerheads Recycle Ableton Live Suite 8 POD Farm 2.5 [i]Heavyocity EVOLVE[/i] I also have a bunch of real hardware like an MPC2000xl, Even 20/20 monitors, Various mics and guitars. So as of now my to buy as I have the cash list is Get my Komplete up to date. I am thinking getting Cubase 6 (thoughts on this??) project symphobia [color="#1C2837"][size="2"]Omnisphere[/size][/color] [color="#1C2837"][size="2"]and it looks like I can get a good bundle of stuff from East West for like 1k so I will probably do that at some point and get some choirs and the Dark Side plugin looks awesome![/size][/color] [color="#1C2837"] [/color] [color="#1C2837"][size="2"]Am I missing anything?[/size][/color] Thanks for all the help so far guys, this is great stuff!

    sure, where do you think I should start? I am currently reading up on how to do better orchestration. I feel I will need a solid year to get decent at that. Also I am studying strange scales etc. Is there any other avenue I should be exploring at the moment?

    Man this is fantastic advice! Thanks guys! After all the kind words here I made a audio reel of my work. If you don't mind, could you take a listen? Its short and has like 10-15 second clips of my best stuff from last year. Let me know if this is at all in the ball park. Thanks again!

    Ok, that makes sense. My initial thought was to build on my strengths. I don't think i would have any problem writing guitar driven rock tracks. What other genres should I explore? Second, I assume the field is very competitive for video game scoring. How did you guys get your first gig?
  5. So first off how do I do it? I am an failry accomplished musician, with a few albums out of both hip-hop and electronic style songs. It would be cool if you guys could listen to a few tracks that I think would be good for video games for example this one [url="http://soundcloud.com/drunk-pedestrians/under-a-metal-atmosphere-with"]http://soundcloud.com/drunk-pedestrians/under-a-metal-atmosphere-with[/url] would be perfect as it develops over time and if you go here can you listen to tracks like "Black Cherry Vodka" [url="http://drunkpedestrians.com/tyranny-of-the-urgent/"]http://drunkpedestrians.com/tyranny-of-the-urgent/[/url] So a few issues, I don't do huge string arrangement's. and I don't write notation. Will this hold me back? Any other advice on how to break in and do it? Do you think my tracks work and are good enough quality wise? I would appreciate any advice, thanks guys!
