Good luck to Nathan McCree. Take it from me, orchestras are REALLY expensive. And if you record here in the UK, even more so.

I would just like to apologise to Cello players for mine/Peter's Aztec Challenge orchestration... but you're really the only guys who can do THAT bassline in the right range and make it sound meaty. So, yeah, um, sorry

Really glad to announce we're going to have a live concert of Tale of a Forest and Tale of a Lake on November 11th at the Espoo Metro Areena. We'll have a huge ...screen with a new version of the films, with a symphony orchestra provided by the Vantaa Pops, 40-voice choir and of course the amazing Johanna Kurkela performing live! Ticket sales start on May 4th. (press release linked below is in Finnish) I'm pretty excited about this one, as I'm sure you can guess!

All,

It's been drawn to my attention that I should clarify something: the previews released so far were not the final sounds: they're the intermediate step in a process.

The second preview had much better sounds than the first preview (different playback engine), but of course it didn't cross that bridge to "sound like real orchestra" for some listeners.

...

The main final recordings are being done by Slaygon with the best sample libraries in the world: libraries which pass every John Williams test you can throw at them, mostly provided by the nice people at Orchestral Tools.

So, the next set of audio from the project you hear will be using the finest samples in the world.
