BBCSO Discovery (Day 1 - 2)
The day before yesterday I finally got my copy of BBCSO Discovery and I'm over the moon, really. I know it has strong limitations and all, but with a little bit of TLC it's really amazingly beautiful to sketch with. Makes me dream of more, that's for sure.
Now, here's my first (and second) day of exploring with it. It's not really a piece of complete music, but rather a quick journey of discovery. I know very little about proper orchestration, picking up hints here and there, but most of you will likely figure this out quickly. Anyway, here it goes:
It's been a bit tricky to suggest something like legatos, but with a little bit of hiding in the trees, hehe, it doesn't sound half-bad to me.
I'm always happy about feedback, especially, if you notice some bad decisions of mine or anything that's obvious to you, but most probably totally unknown to me (haha, DOH!).
No matter what: Spitfire, I love you guys, this thing is a total treasure, I've never had that much fun to just compose away, arrange away and go nuts without any technical worries. I filled up my tracks with all the instances of your plugin I wanted, made heavy use of the key-switches, which are brilliant and my computer never broke a sweat. ...but I did, too much joy! 😅
