So, I am a newb, but I am wondering if it has been listed anywhere the samples that Jason used for his WoW music.  Was it Eastwest symphonic choirs?  I am also curious about the percussion and orchestra samples, as well as the sequencers.  This must have been asked before, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

You mean apart from the live performances, right? Wink

Heh heh.

That's a pretty good question, actually, and I'm not sure if I've seen it answered yet.

Anyone?

I'm sure I remember seeing a post by Jason on that subject ages ago...I think he mentioned Vienna Symphonic Library, and also Voices of the Apocalypse in the choir sections when it's not live choir. I noticed he used Symphony of Voices in some of the WoW music as well - such as the boy's choir Agnus Dei sample in the graveyard music.

Actually, yeah, you're absolutely right.

Sylvos posted an interview with Jason where he discussed this.

Thank you for the reminder; I wouldn't have remembered it. Smiley

* Melda laughs

Hahahaha!



They're not that bad to work with.

Personally, I'd never choose to use one, but apart from being a bit clunky and unintuitive (one mouse button? Really?), they're not terrible creations. Tongue

A lot of composers use different sample libraries and their own recordings to make one of their own. It's not always possible to get the exact thing from the market, I think.

I guess composers don't use Mac just because of "using a Mac", but mostly because Logic only exists on Mac and is quite a damn good software to use for composing.

These are good points. I haven't used Logic myself, personally, but I've only ever heard good things about it.

Apple, though, can go jump in a fire with their anti-competitive mindset. What's that, this software is for both Mac and PCs? Well, let's acquire the IP for it and make it for only our machines!

Well I must say that there has been a huge leap between the latest logic and its previous revision, and Apple really did a good thing to make logic have a macintosh feel, it's far more easy to manipulate (allthough some part as the environment were left almost untouched and still look complex and unfriendly compared to the new design and lay out).

I have tested logic and even though it's got a lot of appeal, I still stick with pro tools, even more with its recent 8 version which has also covered many enhancements regarding midi editing and global layout/ergonomy.

Anyway, it's not having the "best" tool, but doing your best with the tool you have.
