#1 Videos & Demos

Our first video recommendation is a mysterious theme using most instruments we're offering in our Special Editions Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, featuring the masterful orchestration technique of Christian Kardeis. Christian plays all instruments live into the DAW, no additional MIDI editing is necessary, and he likes to use a breath controller for expressive legatos and sustains.
