Hey, how are You doing? I hope You're fine! I wanted to start mixing some orchestras to practice. I like to create OSTs and compositions with it but I never searched for any orchestra vst plugins. In the same week , I was listening to some orchestral metal and I listened to "Unleashed" from Epica. Such an awesome song. I never had the chance to listen to that one. I really wanted to do a cover of it not only because of the arrangements but also because of the details I would have to mix, it would be a great experience. I invited Dunja Palcek. She is an amazing singer and does sing metal and classical music. I found the VSCO community that has a very nice library of sounds for free. I downloaded the Virtual playing orchestra , the Vanilla pack and Big cat "Sketching chamber orchestra". The first two works in Sforzando, a very good sample player. First thing I had to do was to search for the drums. I found on the internet the drums file but I had to transcribe the arrangements for the strings,brass,woodwinds and bells. I exported each file as a midi file. In the project, I rendered each instrument separately. The mixing I did was to create a bus with reverb to sound like a room. This is my first time mixing and mastering this genre. Feel free to give me Your opinions. Let's talk about plugins ,mixing ,share experience. Thank You for reading this and for listening. Have a good day!
