Hi there,

I finally started my own Dungeons and Dragons Campaign which is set in a wold of magic and wizards.

I also wanted to create some music for it, so that I don't have to rely on Harry Potter scores which everyone instantly recognizes. I got the synchronized special edition 1 for this project, and I am amazed how good this cheepish libary sounds and how intuitive the sample labels are. I bought a libary from East West a couple years ago and pretty much stopped composing because it was so frustrating to use.

Enjoy the soundtrack and tell me what you think if you feel like it

Hi Armin,

I've listened to all 11 pieces and I must say that it is a great, wonderful job. Fine themes, beautifully recorded and well mixed. You probably had your reasons for the type of orchestration, but what I miss is some variation in the instrumentation, rhythms and sonic contrast. In piece 7 you used a lot of upward and downward glissandi which are - to my taste - unnecessary and even a bit boring. I use them sparingly and only when absolutely required in the sort of music. (Not all glissandi are possible.)

But as said, the whole suite gives an insight in your talent, orchestration skills and fantasy. It was definitely worth the listen to all of the 11 pieces! "Heros Journey" has a very lovely building-up, but here again, I would skip the glissandi.

Thanks for sharing,

Jos
