DAW to Score

 

DAW to Score – £79

All the gear in the world won’t make good music unless you know how to use it. Give yourself the quality training you deserve and become a better producer with the expert video courses in the ThinkSpace Campus.

Join award winning composer Guy Michelmore as he walks you through the whole process from start to finish, from DAW to Score. It shows you the process used by film and games composers the world over, step by step. It joins the dots and lets you see the whole picture in a new way.

Starting work first thing in the morning, the demo is written and recorded by the afternoon. Then we walk through score prep, tidying up the midi and audio. Now off to LA to meet the orchestrator and finally onto the legendary Warner Bros scoring stage to record the finished track.

    • Follow along as you write your own music.
    • Use it as a checklist to uncover the knowledge gaps that you need to fill in.
    • Watch it to get that vital overview of the whole process from start to finish.

Spitfire Audio

So… how can you get in on Spitfires ‘The Black Weekend’?

Simply visit their website and make a purchase during the sale.

The Black Weekend runs from 00:01am GMT on Thursday 23 Nov to 11.59pm GMT on Tuesday 28 Nov.

This does however exclude Collections, and Orchestral Swarm (20%) and their Labs instruments.

Collections are specially curated product bundles based on their most popular and favourite lines, chosen for specific applications. Buying a Collection is a cost-effective way to buy multiple products at once (they cost less than buying each product individually). Spitfire are offering a further 15% off each Collection’s discount during The Black Weekend, meaning even greater savings (up to 66% off individual products’ list price, in some cases!).

Already have one of Spitfires products? Their site will intelligently deduct these at the Collection discount rate. Just login, add a collection to your cart and let us do the rest.

You can’t combine the two discounts. However, anyone applying for a student discount during the sale will get a discount code which will “top up” the amount of discount from the 25% on offer to the 30% student discount. If you don’t use it before the end of the sale, you’ll need to reapply to get a full 30% discount code.

Will there be another sale anytime soon?

No.

Native Instruments

Native Instruments have fashioned their Black Friday sales differently, with breath-taking deals across a wide range of their products.

Thanksgiving XXL will see you with a Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol Keyboard with Komplete 11 for under £500, for example.

CineSamples

While their website leaves much to be desired, their products and sale definitely do not.

Started in 2007 by two entrepreneurial composers, Cinesamples has grown to provide creators of media music worldwide with the highest quality and innovative virtual instruments at reasonable prices.

Starting out of necessity, CineSample created new, niche libraries that weren’t initially available in the market . Although Cinesamples has grown to cover full orchestra releases, they’ve continued to find unique and innovative approaches to sample library development and continue their search for niche sounds.
