Title: Jem, where on earth are those strings coming from...
Post by: thomaspottage on November 16, 2008, 11:42:28 AM
...On EIMA? The start of Wonderland for example. Please tell me its some delicious attainable plugin, and not the result of a session with real musicians in a real studio. Oh, and bravo! Its outstanding, the whole thing, i have listened to it 9 times already and its still as moving as the first peek.

Hah, weird. Wonderland just started playing for the 1st time as I entered this thread.

The tune the strings are playing is that a callback to something on Milliontown? Sounds familiar.

Is it JM?

We're going to reconvene on Saturday to finish the guitars, do the violin parts (yes, he plays violin too) and record his vocals, then he's free to go.

I hope not, that would be terribly unfair. If it is then bravo, stellar playing, but it sounds like basses and Cellos to me too. Then again i wouldn't be at all surprised if he just happens to play them as well. Any word from the horses mouth?

It's a sample from some library I used to have before my sample drive failed with the loss of all onboard.

I think I played it out of Kontakt 2. Something else I lost in the great OSX upgrade disaster of 2008.

The sound wrote the riff really. I'd like to think that solo album Tony Banks would be proud of me.  :lol:

I can't wait to get my copy of the album!!! Should be here any day now.

btw Omnisphere has some rather nice sounding string sets.

There is no way of one person playng violin to emulate an orchestra, you would lose all sense of orchestral togetherness. Just doesn't work.

Sounds like Vienna SSO to me... and Jem being the producery sport he is, I'd bank on either East West or Vienna...

Actually, I think it was Peter Seidlescjeelsekkskkrkk's Complete Classical Collection. It was a funny little sample only about an octave and a half in length. Nice though.

Ahh Peter Sleeeshhhiiaaakkk. Nice :)

(I too was banking on East/West though :D)

So did the JM violin parts not get used, or is that what's in Saline?

Dear Jem,
Not wishing to put any more on your plate and you probably don't have the time or inclination (or gear setup?) to do it, but a Rob Reed style "Inside the mix" video for some or all of the tracks would be just soooo cool and probably extremely instructional too.
Rob did this for the whole "Metamorphosis" album and some of "Home" - where he just plays the songs in full but mutes and solos tracks on the mixing desk to point out little bits, who did what and so on.
I know we've kind of got some of this in the Frost* reports already so it's really just a thought for your future consideration.  :)

Well surely we're nearly at the stage of the "oh shit I have to programme the set" Frost report?

It's not just JM, though, is it? Sounds like there's a bass or cello in there, too at the end?

While we're on Saline, can you help me out with the backing vocals in the lovely strings bit? I can't make out what they're saying.

Thank you so much! ^_^
