Description: Sonic Academy proudly welcomes Nate Raubenheimer, aka Protoculture, for a look at a different type of genre and we’ll see how to make a hybrid orchestra. Moving away from his usual tracks, Nate guides us from start to finish in creating this epic and epic masterpiece using both EastWest Play and NI Kontakt’s orchestral sections.
We’ll start by looking at a template and how to set up the various parts in your DAW, and create an initial sketch for some lead voices before breaking up the MIDI chord progression into separate string sections.
Using the ever-changing automation lines to create realistic expression, we add brass sections and lead lines along with orchestral percussion elements to help with transitions. After the orchestral sections are complete, we lay out synths, pads, and arps to create a sound wall before mixing the track and starting mastering.
This is a master class on the use of orchestral elements in a digital environment. The tips and tricks Nate shows us can be carried over to all kinds of genres.
