but one has to have some limit on the investing part!!!
return VS. investment
If it´s mostly a one way street one has to consider that also.
I´m afraid my friend to tell you my libraries, since you think they sound outdated in my hands 🙂
Spitfire Albion One, Albion 2, Spit, percussion, Hz percussion, Berlin strings, Berlin ww, Metropolis 1 and 2, Loads of 8dio stuff, Slate digital all access, QL reverb, and loads of other stuff too 🙂
Logic X, Cubase and Ensemble thunderbolt
Currently new Imac pro.
I guess this makes me the guy that has way too much stuff, and does not know how to use it 😉
and LAwriter, I do agree,
I however can not spend 100 – 400 dollars per track for mix/master if the track will never get used. I might do it if I had some financial guarantee that the track will be bought. I can do stuff better, takes more time, which I don´t have too much of.
The big name companies would not like this quality, but hopefully I´m close to the underscore quality for low end productions at the moment. Thats were I need to start I´m afraid. If I see that work, then I might be able to aim for higher.
yeah, I did work that one more, and I´ve done a lot of these too. But then it comes to the question, is it better to do one good, that takes a couple of days, that will not be used, or do 5 or 6 in the same mount of time, and maybe have more chance of one of them being used.
I repeat, I´m all for quality, but I´m hearing and seeing stuff being used as underscore that is not very creative, but seems to fit something that the editor wants.
I don´t know.
But I hear of people here doing 5 – 10 tracks sometimes a day, and having 2000 – 3000 tracks here and there. I mean, not all of them can be masterworks, but functional all the same.
Thats what I was aiming at with the tracks I posted first, something useful, that has some chance of being put as underscore. I will never get the amount of tracks needed if I spend 2 – 3 days per track.
Thanks again to you all,
been very helpful
The pieces I posted were all made in the last few days, except the piano and olympic one, done about 25 in three weeks. They are all aimed at underscore stuff for libraries and therefore I´ve always gotten the impression that they need to be simple up to a point. The library I´ve done about 40 exclusive tracks last year for always gives a certain structure I need to follow and reference tracks.
All this has had effect probably on this underscore writing. I know quality is key, but by reading posts and hearing music that is being used, I tend to think also that quantity plays a role.
Again, although a step back might be needed, I always come back to the point that I love doing this type of music but to be able to concentrate more on it I need to see some income that goes beyond 200 – 300 dollars a year from PRO 😉 . But another thing I´ve learnt here on this wonderful site is that this is something that takes time, tunesat refresh is just pulling down the morale a bit.
I post here another piece, from one year ago or so, that is more musically complicated, at least I hope so LaWriter 😉
Thank you all again, your comments are really helpful guys.
Thank you all for your comments, I really appreciate you taking the time.
I actually work as a professional musician in Iceland, make a fine salary playing organ and directing choirs, even get grants to write more complicated stuff. However I really like doing this type of music and even though a step back is needed I kind of think I could do this kind of work, although I need to find a US library that uses this kind of music.
Thank you… I needed to hear that,,,
I´m actually using ok libraries, not dated, so I must be using them wrong. And thats a tough pill to swallow after a few years of training in using these things.
Think it´s time I take a step back, too much time going into this and money, will concentrate on other projects 🙂 and leave the library business.
thank you for pulling me back to reality my friend
