The big question many ask is, "How do I generate inspiration to create something new?” Scoring Stages 2: Something From Nothing begins answering that question by first showing you specific compositional techniques using triads then four-part harmony to create, near instantly (without ever having had counterpoint), two- and three-part compositions. Apply tone colors and Span of Orchestration from the Spectrotone Chart, and voila, a professional sounding composition. To accomplish this, Scoring Stages 2 starts with a harmony review. Not Theory! Instead, Harmonic facts that can be applied to most any genre of music you’re working on. And! From Rap to Orchestral, synths to strings. You can apply this information in a bazillion ways.

Get real! Or at least get your MIDI orchestra to SOUND real! Learn the art of creating realistic orchestral MIDI mockups in this inspiring course by the one and only Peter (Ski) Schwartz.

Orchestral sample libraries are everywhere. You can buy cheap ones or you can shell out some serious cash for the top of the line libraries. And while the quality of your sample library is important, solid MIDI techniques can make ANY orchestral sample library sound more real. You just need to learn the tried and true methods that MIDI master and orchestral composer, Peter (Ski) Schwartz, reveals in this example-filled, information-packed, super-cool course!

Think of it this way: The samples are the instruments… and we all know that instruments can't play themselves! The MIDI notes are the score… and the score is just a musical roadmap. So where does the "real” MUSIC come from? We’re talking about the all important stuff like expression, phrasing, dynamics and feeling that is key when you’re trying to emulate a room full of great musicians! Well, the answer is all in the artful programming of the MIDI CCs and all of the behind-the-scenes MIDI techniques that you, the virtual conductor, bring into the production! That’s exactly what Peter Schwartz explores and teaches you how to accomplish in this 40+ tutorial course!

Whether you're using a premium orchestral library like EastWest or the basic one that came with your DAW, this course, on enhancing orchestral realism, will guide and inspire you to make your orchestral productions as authentic-sounding as possible. So grab your virtual MIDI conductor’s baton, open up your favorite sample library and start making orchestral scores that are almost indistinguishable from the real thing!

You need an orchestra to play orchestral music. Likewise, you need an orchestral template to play a MIDI orchestral score. This course, by Peter Schwartz, explains the technology and the craft behind designing pro orchestral templates.

As a follow-up to Peter’s popular "Enhancing Realism" course, "Designing Templates" shows you everything you need to know to construct your own orchestral templates. You learn about sampling technology and how it works, as well as how to optimize your hardware (and software) to get the most out of your MIDI orchestra. Then, Peter dives into the plugins, including East West, Native Instruments and more, explaining the ins and outs of multi-timbral and multi-output setups. With that knowledge well in hand, Peter gives you all the tools and tips you need to construct an orchestral template that’ll work perfectly with your specific hardware and software.

Next, you learn all about the power of Vienna Ensemble Pro and how it’ll become the center of your MIDI orchestra universe. Finally, this course concludes with an important section explaining how to setup orchestral slave systems, which in the world of scoring, is the solution of choice to harness the power needed to achieve the ultimate MIDI orchestral solution.

Completing this course gives you the knowledge and confidence you need to setup the orchestral template that you’ve always dreamed of. And, once you’ve got your template up and running, you can then, finally, concentrate less on the technology and focus more on composing your music. So whether you're creating music for games, TV, film or live performance, you will know that your personal orchestra is standing by, ready to go, awaiting every wave of your virtual baton!

The wind section is made up of several different families: the flutes, oboes, clarinets and bassoons and each family has its own, unique way of producing sound. This course’s first section explains each family's playing characteristics including tone production, breathing, embouchure, fingering articulations and much, much more.

Then, Maestro Goss opens up his orchestration guidebook and takes you on a scoring journey. It is in this section that you learn all about score positions, section sizes, seating plans, transposing instruments and registers. We are so pleased to have such a great instructor like Thomas Goss teach orchestration to our members. His insight, attention to detail and educational skills are second to none.
