I started this peice awhile back & just finished. It's a symphony orchestra in Reason 3.0.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Really good!

You know I'm composing symphonic music with Reason 3.0 and a lot of people saying to me that this program is not the platform for classical music. But I disagree. I make classical music with it and the piece you made here proves the programs possibilities in this genre.

The first that caught my ears is the... ehm... dulcimer? And I could hear that you wanted to achieve a kind of japenese feeling in this song with the flutes and the dulcimer. You succseeded - I think the song really has this mood.

Another thing: this song has a lot variety like it'd be always changing and don't have repetitive part - so great use of themes and instruments. Only some minor dissonance can be heard in the dulcimers melody - but that's not so disturbing. The gentle violin was also great sounding

Overall: great song, great composition. A question: did you use other refill sets than just the Orkester Soundbank? Because the sounds I could hear are all from there.

Reason is no doubt a very powerful music making tool! I started with vesion 2.5 and upgraded to version 3.0. At first, it's very intimidating to use because there's sooooo many knobs and sliders everywhere (not to mention all the wiring/cables on the back of the rack)!! But once I got the hang of things, I started to become more and more creative and productive. I created a few other orchestral pieces as well. If you haven't heard them already, try them out.

Yea the dulcimer was a really diverse instrument to use. I could bend those notes and make them sound like the "real thing." :) The strings sound incredibly real because I layered many of them together making it sound like a "group" of them playing. The other elements are quite breath taking too! The guys at Propellarhead really knew what they were doing!!

If you're a symphonic composer, I would recommend getting the "Strings" refill!! It's definitely worth it! I use instruments from it on a regular basis. :)

Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed this piece.

amazing work!

I am so pleased with this song,it truly brings that anciant-chinese feel, that it strikes me as hard to not believe that this is not from some real orchestra that you recorded...simply amazing! How did you make such a clear peice? i have been hunting down a keyboard and software that works well, any tips for an aspiring musician?

XayberOptix responds:

Sounds quite real, doesn't it? hehe. It's unbelievable what technology can do these days! As mentioned throughout, I use Reason 3.0 and Audition 1.5. With these 2 tools, you can pretty much make anything you want. Just load up on sound libraries and refills and you'll be set!

Thanks for listening and reviewing!

If I would've heard this piece in a strategygame(really has that militant feeling ;) ) from one of the big producers, I would not be annoyed, and that takes a pretty damn good song :P

Great job!
