Visual Orchestration 2: Articulations & Templates – From Orchestration to Setting Up the Virtual Orchestral Mix (Foundation For MIDI Mock-Ups) contains ten new video lectures, totaling 7.46 hours, distilling the core principles of a college course on basic orchestration directly applied to sample libraries and MIDI mock-up applications complete with audio demos. Whether you read or don’t read music, you’ll get gangbusters out of Visual Orchestration 2.
Your Intro to Effectively Mixing Your MIDI Mock-Ups
Visual Orchestration 2: Articulations & Templates™ goes through the “mechanics” (articulations) for strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion, by defining what articulations and bowings are, performance insights, and how both apply to sample library purchasing, and evaluating existing libraries. The second focus is learning the concepts of setting up a virtual orchestral mix within your template, e.g., getting everyone into the same room. As with Visual Orchestration 1, Visual Orchestration 2 distills the core principles of orchestrating so that the ability to read music is not required. The focus is on the things you do by ear referencing the Spectrotone Chart. as your visual guide.
By the end of Visual Orchestration 2, whether you read music or create by ear, you’ll know the orchestral instruments, the key articulations and bowings that go into a template, dynamic equivalents applied to the virtual orchestra, plus setting up the virtual orchestral mix.
