Hi guys,

I want to know some of the software you use to create your BT here for the lessons.

I use Ezdrummer for drum but for the other instruments like "string ensamble", what can I use?

Thanks

Lots of options are offered for general instruments like strings.
You can use a dedicated orchestral plugin like for example Edirol Orchestral. I use that one quite a bit, fast loading and descent samples.
You can also use some more expensive ones such as East West samples. They have very high quality samples, but require lots of disk space and lots of money too. :-)
You may also check out some soundfonts, those are sample formats that can be read ith soundfount players.
There are a few free ones out there that you can find on Google.
Check it out!

I use Sonar 7. Many people here use Cubase, Nuendo or Reaper. Doesn't really matter what you use, they all do the same job. EZ drummer is good for drums. I use Bandstand, Hypersonic 2 and Cakewalk TTS-1 for all my sounds. All these are just General Midi (GM) sounds and have everything I need. Strings, bass, drums, full orchestra and anything you can think of.

Very useful, thanks.

I would get something like Hypersonic 2 that Emir suggested, or East West Collosus, any package that contains all instruments, is a must when you want to make creative backingtracks. Further down the line you can always go for more specific products, if your aiming ultra realistic piano sound, or other dedicated instruments. Only thing i would suggest is to try a demo of the product before buying it, theres ALOT of products that isnt quite as good as they claim to be, anyway good luck smile.gif

I use Nuendo as a sequencer and these VSTi: EZdrummer, Edirol Hyper Canvas and Edirol Orquestal.
I also use Reason (conected with Nuendo by Rewire) for some instruments like Bass, Keyboards, Piano and Synths.

DAW: nuendo 3
drums, rhythm: Superior Drummer 2, Stylus RMX, EZD
bass: Trilogy, Virtual Bassist
pads: Atmosphere
piano: Grand 2
organ: B4
strings & brass: Orchestral, Bandstand

Some of these were cheap and some are a bit pricey. I think Virtual Bassist/bandstand combo can give good results for a tight budget.

Instruments are just 30% of the job. Rest is producing the sound right. You need to use good FX plugs for mixing&mastering. This way you make recordings come alive. Good plugs are various Waves bundles, T-Rex plugs, or hardware accelerated ones, like UAD.

I use ProTools and SampleTank as well. Really great stuff!

But I still like to use "real" (hardware) sound modules and synths smile.gif
