Re: Torment: Tides of Numenera

Monte Cook is the guy who invented Numenera, and he is at the center of the new Torment game. He also created a great deal of material for the D&D Planescape setting... so he probably has a good chance to capture the flavor of the original game even if the specific names and places are different...

Re: Another song!

Nice work on all the tracks you have posted on your SoundCloud. This one definitely had me looking over my shoulder to see if Mike Hammer was coming in the door, or maybe I'd accidentally traveled to Sin City. I really liked Death is But A Road Between Us, though. Very moody and well produced.

Re: [orchestral] Made Some

To do that, what you will need to do is use a sustain pedal (if you have one) or assign a controller on your keyboard to CC64 (which is the default for sustain). You could also manually enter the CC data if your sequencer allows it. What will be tricky is getting the note-offs to work right. Under n...

Re: [orchestral] Made Some

@Gna: I am a bit confused by the terminology you're using and can't quite figure out what you're doing, so let's try to clear that up first. You say you are trying to play two notes on a single key. Which of the following does that mean: ⋅ You are triggering a C on your keyboard and you wa...

Re: [orchestral] Made Some

Oh, and regarding Giga conversion... I will doublecheck on this but I think that from within the Kontakt browser, it will show Giga instruments and you can click to load them as if they were Kontakt instruments. It will probably then run through a small (or large, depending on the instrument) conver...

Re: [orchestral] Made Some

Here's a basic (and by basic I mean 'maybe wordier than you hoped for' ) guide on how to get things going. Kontakt is indeed a sampler like Gigastudio was. In fact, Kontakt supplanted Gigastudio as the dominant softsampler in the market, and then Tascam bought Gigastudio from Nemesys, and they drove...

Re: [orchestral] Made Some

Unfortunately, you'd need the full version of Kontakt to use the freebies on my site, but the .wav files of the sounds are unlocked so you might find some use for them. The features you're talking about when you mention wanting more advanced instruments are actually present in both Kontakt (and most...

Re: [orchestral] Made Some

If $500 is too steep, there are still options that cost even less than that. https://www.native-instruments.com/#/en/products/producer/kontakt-5/ - Kontakt 5. $399 The full version of the sampler comes with a massive 43GB library that spans orchestral, choral, rock, synth, world and other instrument...

Re: [orchestral] Made Some

Hey, I know I'm sort of necro-ing this thread, but it caught my eye and I thought I might offer some useful information to anyone still interested. First off, GnaReffotsirk, I really enjoyed the music. They're all cool tracks, and I'm impressed at what you wrung out of that Eridol module. If FLStudi...

Re: IskatuMesk - Music

Not only was the OST for Gundam Unicorn cool, but I really liked the initial episode they released as well. Here is some more fantastic anime music, also Gundam (from Turn A Gundam) by Yoko Kanno: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPO2XNYIW8Q The whole OST is awesome, and very varied in style. Orchestr...

Re: A glimpse at my StarCraft 2 project. (new material 12/23/08)

@Maglok - Symphobia is indeed pretty easy to use.  All the sections have a great sound without much tweaking at all.    It's big and epic, but I think it works best when other libraries are around to provide the detail while Symphobia gives the power and oomph.    The orches...

Thanks for the compliments!  I'm glad you guys are enjoying the music. It has been fun to explore all the different musical directions Desler has planned for this campaign. @Maglok - the brass are SampleModeling's The Trumpet in the lead and WIVI for everything else.  There are probably so...

Re: Previously Unreleased: Mistiria Map 1 (download)

Hah, I wonder where Joel's Day of the Fish (correct project name?) went to as well. Yep, that was the name.  It evaporated when Darky lost his soul to World of Warcraft, much to my chagrin.  He had done a fair amount of work on the first map, but then WoW claimed him, never to let go it w...

Re: Anime: So whats good out there?

Someone already mentioned Claymore, but I will mention it again, because it deserves it.  It is brutal, and super good.  It starts off somewhat conventionally, but rapidly picks up steam and around episode 8 or so really becomes spectacular.  Lots of extremely intense action... but no...

Hey, neat.  I was involved in 3 of the 8 campaigns featured there.  Of course, I only contributed title screens for Meta's 'Aeon of the Hawk' and 'The Flame Knives'.  But he seems to have liked LOTC and its 'incredible' production values, which I had a bit more of a hand in... so that...
