No big revelation in terms of composing better melodies, but I’ve been playing around with a bunch of new instruments… who would have known that there’s actually free orchestral samples (from the Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra) and you don’t have to fork over a bazillion bucks to get the professional ones (I’m sure they sound a bazillion times better, but for my purpose…).
Also, who would have known that jumpy melody is played by a specific violin technique. The more you know.
Oh, also also… I’ve played around with recording a live mix of the three tracks by muting sections on and off on the fly while playing. I’m sure there’s a way to do it properly inside Renoise but I still haven’t found the time to read through the manual yet.
