Default Hello from Niagara Falls, NY...

I have been an EastWest user for a few years. I recently remembered that I had registered for these forums awhile ago. Today I figured I would introduce myself. I'm still in the primordial ooze stage of composition. I hope to attain the skills needed to produce acceptable music. EastWest and NOTION 5 make it a lot easier to compose, without losing myself in the process. Soon I will become a single-celled creature with an eventuality of evolving into a beautiful butterfly.

Thanks!
Al

Welcome, Alimar.
Which EW libraries are you using with Notion 5?
I'm a composition noob myself. Any suggestions?

First of all, thank you! The great thing about N5 is that it allows you to load the EastWest Symphony Orchestra, including key switches for the different sections. Within each section, you can load the articulation you desire to use by clicking 'Shift + I', (on a Macintosh, I don't know what it is on a PC). By placing the new articulation marker on a given track, you can run through every articulation for every single note if desired. I used to mark key switches with grace notes (which are inaudible in the KS regions) but that was a pain in the neck.

I use EWQLSO, Hollywood... everything, Storm Drum 2, Choirs, Ghost Writer, and various other sounds from the Complete Composers Collection 2.

The following is a link to my most recent endeavor:

I have EastWest 'Spaces', but I rely on the basic reverb setting in N5 along with the reverbs that are in the default setting of each instrument. I am kind of afraid to use Spaces. I still have a long way to go.

Cheers, Al. Do you use EWQLSO Silver, Gold or Platinum?
