In my last post I wrote about how I was looking to rebuild my entire library. Through support and advice given I have been forced to consider what it was precisely that was bothering me.
Was it REALLY the libraries? Did I REALLY use them to their best potential?
I'd like to answer yes, but the answer is yes, and no.
I feel I know how to manipulate the library's sounds to get decent quality out of them. So in this context I have used them to their best potential.
But what I haven't done is used the instruments to their best potential. David Orr said to me in the last post, that I should try creating a solo piano piece.
and I did (okay I HAD to throw in a soloist singer in there)
The effort necessary just for those 30 seconds was staggering for me. 2 hours. My understanding of the orchestra is not weak, but my understanding of each instrument in it is apparently, horrible.
So I will not be using these 2 months to purchase an entire new library *though I WILL still be on the lookout for a few new sounds*, but I will take that time to dive further into these instruments whose voices I never took the time to truly listen and understand.
I hope none of them are going to pout on me now!
Big news coming soon also.
