    Gerudo Valley. I'm not a brass person so I forced myself to do this song in order to use brass in ways I normally wouldn't use it just to get the experience.

    Recorded it using a Yamaha Motif keyboard, Sonar X1 and EastWest samples.

    Depends on me. If I'm in the mood and get on a roll not too long at all. Hardest part is playing the original, trying to figure out what sounds they used, then trying to match the sounds to what I have.

    I used 20 different instruments for that song.

    Rough guess, 30-60seconds an hour for something like this.

    faster if in the mood, much much slower if not in the mood.

    Always. Always. Always loved the ffvii sound track. I can picture every sequence of the game where the song occurs. The music in that game is so descrpitive.

    I don't have access to a high end recording studio with a full concert hall to record cellos 1st violins 2nd violins, bass... and so on lol.

    I load up a sample and it maps out onto my keyboard then I hit record on my DAW and play the keyboard recording the sampled sounds.

    All of it was played using a keyboard, no prerecorded rifts or runs.

    Nice! Just curious- it's still badass whether you made the samples or not.
