This video is about ‘How to get a tight sounding orchestra’. A topic that many of you were waiting for. Cause when you do this right, you will be able to get that PRO orchestral sound that we all want. Just by simply using the delay functionality in your DAW to get that spot on timing of all your orchestral instruments.
Don’t forget to hit that like button if you appreciate this video. And sub to my channel if you’re interested in how to write orchestral music for film, tv and games. Or have an interest in sounddesign and sound recording.
Good Timing makes it more PRO
If you are the same as me, then you probably play in your music using a keyboard. I use a Native Instrument Komplete S49. When done I always need some correction and I quantize the midi notes. Most of the time to 16th, 8th or 4th notes.
But not all instruments ‘start’ at the exact moment of the midi notes. For example, a brass instrument like a horn, trombone or tuba need most of the time some milliseconds to produce the actual sound. Same for the woodwinds or even for the strings. They all have an individual attack time.
So that is something to be aware of. And you as a composer trying to get a realistic orchestral mockup, needs to correct that!
