This is something i did today, cause i was curious as to
how some Gold instruments would sit in a "Band" setting,
with Drums and bass etc etc...

Well, i think it sounds really good. You can easily do the "Nashville string machine"
vibe with Gold. oooo, im lovin it... :D

I did this with the following virtual instruments;

BFD for drums. UAD-1 Plug ins (when they say Big F'ing Drum, they mean BIG.
They sound HUGE) ( Though i do use Drum kit
from hell Superior alot, and the Ride cymbal you hear in this clip is from DKFHS,
not BFD btw) DKFHS cymbals are far superior)

Trilogy Acoustic Martin Bass

White Grand Piano in Kontakt 2 (player's perspective)

Gold Violins, Violas, Cellos, and Bassoon.


Comments would be nice, but hey, no pressure... ;)

Hey Todd,

Just gave it a listen, I like it. The chorus (I know, no vocal) is very moving, it fits my kind of taste, just maybe something a bit different to bring out the 'emotion' of it, another instrument not used? to further contrast from the main section. But all in all, good bluesy groove and the orchestral parts add just that right flavour to it. I have listened to a few of your pieces and you definetly have 'your' sound.

Excellent!

Hi Dall!

Thanks for listening! I didnt really clean this one up, i just wanted to get
a basic idea of how Gold would sit with bass and drums. Could have added
some guitar etc etc... But, ah....

Gold definatly wins again in this case. :D It just sounds good, with anything it seems.

Glad you like the clips! Thanks for chiming in with your thoughts!

They are much appreciated...
