Brass ensembld, look for advice

Post by adminatron » Tue Apr 11, 2017 1:01 pm

I've heard some amazing recreations of starwars/fox/universal themes done that I'm sure you've all hears... I know he used altiverb ect, but advice on actual midI side of things?

For instance, did he record the trumpet part 3 times, or simply stack 3 trumpets and record the trumpet once

Also, is that style more suited for mod wheel playing or BC? I'm unable to do fast reps with the breath controller, is using the key's for the fast stuff the way the go, or just slowing it down?

Thanks in advance.

You'll always get way better results playing the trumpet part three different times rather than playing it once on a stacked patch. The little differences in each performance are the breath of life.

As for staccatos, I too have a hard time doing fast stac passages and often end up performing them more by the keys and just holding a constant breath CC. One tip though, I get better results NOT letting the breath CC stay at 127, but somewhere below that.
