hi folks. okay, i humbly admit this is probably one of the worst of Vienna Users' contributions, but just thought id put it up anyways,
I recorded a cover version of Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence". It's pretty minimalistic; and you gotta understand - i am by no means purporting to be an electronic "orchestrator" or anything. My music is mostly sadcore/downbeat electronica, into which i trying to incorporate some VSL instruments. That's all. I am as novice as it gets, concerning using VSL. :)
The only thing i think turned out fairly well is the Legato cello melody. The rest of it is pretty backgroundish... and im fully aware that my usage of the strings in the chorus are technically wrong (i.e, since its Orch Strings I and II i am using, im playing chords, hence theres WAYYYY too many actual strings being bowed... i addressed this question in another thread here.) They sound way too artificially lush.
The mix totally sucks, so no need to point it out to me. :P This was just a quick "first mix" i wanted to pop online for my fans. Plenty of EQ problems i need to work out. Not properly mastered, needless to say. Anyhow, just wanted to throw out my first official "usage" of VSL in case anyone wanted to hear it.
- Logic Pro
- VSL Orch Strings I and II
- Logic's Sculpture synth
- Modartt's Pianoteq
- Art Vista Cool Vibes
- Pendeltone Dulcitone
- TC Powercore (reverbs, choruses)
- various other synths/exs insts.
- and of course, my voice (ack!)
im sure its not really up anyone's alley.
