This week we continue in creating a more realistic orchestral template. We’re going to apply the concept of balancing. A difficult, but very important concept. If you get your balance of the orchestral instruments right, you’re 90% on your way to create realistic orchestral mockups!

A couple of weeks ago I started the Masterclass on Youtube with the video preparations. I shared my project files (midi mockup etc.) with you all. If you haven’t downloaded them yet, here is the direct link: http://bit.ly/show-opener-gh0stwrit3r-music
