My first Approach is the Remake of ‘From Breakdown To Sunrise’ as an Orchestral Version.
I have downloaded a trial Version of Steinberg’s Symphony Orchestra Plugin, in order to evaluate it’s value for my final Goal, making soundtrack for videos.
In the past week I’ve been working on a project template for Orchestral Productions. An Orchestra has a certain layout. Each voice (MIDI Channel) has to be mapped onto it’s position in space. Depth simulation is achieved my mapping the Midi Track onto it’s Layer Channel. All Layer Channels are then routed to the Master channel.
Each depth Channels volume, filter and Reverb is configured with it’s depth properties to reflect the distance to the Listener.
From Breakdown To Sunrise is my first practise project with this template. I will document it’s progress here.
First Step: The Intro (Version 1)
One Step ahead: (only intro is organic, second part is currently with full volume)
Another step ahead … so this is the basic framework. Anything else is variation and tranposing, and of course a lot of tweaking and sound enrichment.
Almost done making the existing material more organic. The last view beats are not yet organic, just to demonstrate the difference, which is huge.
Oops, just found some malformed chors in the silent part, probably in woodwinds and brass. Gotta re-inspect.
Ok, The ‘Final’ Version (not really final, but I’ve learned enough to start making music for videos):
