Hi my friends of biab,
I have not been present on the forum in recent months for lack of time to devote to my hobby and I apologize. I would like to thank the site administrators for including me in the list of 2022 winners.

I'm uploading a symphonic metal composition today. For the metal part, I used rockamer-style realtracks + the RT guitar Poppower 1530 and for the orchestral part, I used chamber strings from Spitfire and bells from Eastwest. It's an unpretentious composition with the solo guitar of the realtrack which takes up all the space of this short composition. If you have the desire or the time, thank you for your constructive comments.

The link to my compo is :

Derochette,

A good Symphonic Rock tune.

Enjoyed the listen.

I thought the strings could have been just slightly more "forceful" (Mostly just a little louder to sit "alongside" the cool guitar solo).

Cool.

Hi, Derochette.

Loved the strings, and the tubular bells as well.

Of course, the guitar playing is excellent. smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi floyd jane,

I thank for your comment and your advice. I increased the volume of the strings to adapt it to the volume of the solo guitar. One more thank you.

Hi dcuny,

It makes me happy to read you and I'm glad you like it because it's not a style I'm comfortable with.

Thank you

It doesn't sound like its a style you're not comfortable with. It sounds like you have master the genre.

Great instrumentation and mix but that RT guitar lead to it over the top for me.

Two thumbs up

'Derochette'...

This is some kind of grand, gripping blend of orchestral and rock music sensibilities for sure! It's like a prelude, or an intro to a larger composition. The two genres dance with and augment each other, rising to a fever pitch in the crescendo, and then fall out of the lofty orbit they've achieved in a stunning coda that left this listener simultaneously exhilarated and lost because of the brevity of the performance.

Regardless, I enjoyed the musical you created!

This imaginative blend of modern and traditional soundscapes is well crafted. I thought the string/guitar ratios were fine. My one and only nit-pick is the last note of the tubular bells. I believe it would be more effective if it was synchronised with the last note of the guitar, rather than the fraction-of-a-second delay. Well done.


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

The orchestral parts seem Bond theme/Barrie style which is cool.
They are great...the guitar is a bit generic but it does come from a box after all.
Have you listened to Wally Stott/Angela Morely's arrangements for Scott Walker? They're part baroque, part avant garde and part baritone pop.
Top stuff...I really enjoyed the arrangement...I'd love to hear one of the resident guitar gods have a crack at this.


Cheers

This is quite remarkable.

Fantastic to listen to a rock-style with a symphony backing.

Lots to like about this, no question.

Hi MarioD,
Thank you for your comment but even if it does not appear, I do not control the fast rhythms well. Reading your comment, I realized that I forgot to mention the RT guitar solo "1530 guitar electric soloist PopPower Ev 120". I correct my introductory comment. smirk

Hi Bluage,
Thanks for dropping by to comment. This composition is short because only instrumental and several people advised me not to exceed 2 min 30 so as not to tire the listener. Thanks again.

Hi Ghostgum,
Thank you for your appreciation and your constructive remark on the delay of the bells at the end. I tried to align the bells on the last note of the guitar but it sounded worse than with a slight delay. This is the reason why I voluntarily maintained this delay. But it's a question of taste. Thanks again for stopping by.

Hello Derochette
Good idea and good implementation
The guitar solo is really good in parts.
Maybe you should use the multiriff function for such
long solos to keep the solo on a high level for the whole length
But in any case it is a good song
And more rock music can't hurt here in the forum ;-)
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Man, you sure know how to build a song with the best ingredients and creative juices, Derochette. I always wanted to play in such a band as you have created here. Reminds me of The Nice playing with Andrea Previn and the London Symphony. Also, Bela Fleck with the Reading Symphony Orchestra --Victa blew the away. Excellent use of the software and a very good mix. Hopefully we'll get to hear more from you soon. I missed ya.


Enjoy whatever happens!

JaniJackFlash,

This is a very nice sounding track! You did an excellent job blending the heavy rock and symphonic sounds together! Totally professional sounding!

Thanks, Torrey
