Mr. Barnard, why are you necro-spamming my thread?

Much as I appreciate your taking a chance to promote yourself, Skyy, your snippet is most definitely synth-sounding! smile I might recommend listening to, or asking Mike about increasing the width and depth of your soundstage in the mix, and possibly some library recommendations. He has the #1 composition thread over at VI-Control (http://www.vi-control.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=15017) and is one of the nicest, most generous members when it comes to providing tips and advice.

Like I said before, YOU are just a OVERLY dedicated "FanBoy".

I'm not as zealous as YOU because I don't agree with EVERYTHING that Williams has done.....

And what YOU say is just a matter of *opinion*.....

CASIO liked, and were SHOCKED that their keyboards, could DO "Orchestral"...because , most of the time, the demos are just "popular".

And even YOUR hero, Mike Verta, says that the "reality didn't meet the fantasy"

One more thing-There was a brilliant person that fooled YOU by being a "One Man Band" on a major Motion Picture. Since YOU are such an "expert", I will let YOU name the FILM and the Composer!

It's like one day every year you forget to take your meds.

Skyy38. I've reported a couple of your threads. I not sure whether English is your second language but your posts are unintelligible and mean spirited.

As far as I can tell, this thread is a positive one concerning Mr Verta and his skills. I've corresponded with him at Vi Control a few times and he's a nice guy and very frank.

And I'm not Clark Kent. But I have been composing for the better part of 30 years using a plethora of electronic equipment so I know more than a little bit about this topic.

Have a swell day kiddo.

WOW... enjoyed the hell out of listening to that. Is that sound all done on synth or does he compose for orchestra?? Can't believe that is electronic. I had to laugh- as good as they all are my fav would have to be "So 80's"... he nailed Faltermeyer!

I could "fake you out" with a $200 software and you wouldn't know the difference.



*really*


No you couldn't. Samples are great, especially the expensive ones by VSL, but at the end of the day there's a very discernible difference in the realism of expression between a real instrument and a sampled one. Anyone who thinks differently is just naive or has the ears of a goat.

Anything become of this guy yet? Things sure seem to be moving slow for him...

Verta works in computer FX or design by day. Yes, it's a sad statement that a guy with this much musicality has to have a day job...

The days of fabulous music chops in scores is largely gone because that's not what employers (ie filmmakers, studios) or consumers (audiences) want.

The good news is that the concert halls are becoming a nice haven for talented composers who were weaned on classic film scores to have their works showcased. I see a new composition by a living composer on almost every TSO programme which is very encouraging.
