How To Compose Epic Orchestral Music in Cubase 9!
In this video I compose a short 8 bar epic orchestral piece from scratch to give an insight into composing for an orchestra in Cubase 9.
The piece is super rough! I would usually spend a lot more time than this when composing but for the sake of the video I had to rush through it a bit. I normally have some manuscript paper next to me to work out harmonies and keep track of everything.
The VST’s I’m using are from Native Instruments Symphony Essentials, the percussion is from Stormdrum and the gong is from EWQLSO Gold. I’m running them through Kontakt 5 Player.
Apologies for the sound cutting out towards the end, I had to switch to a different ASIO driver in order to record the audio and microphone together in OBS. The driver couldn’t handle it!
