The Wild Boys - Epic cover

Postby squarespiral » Sun Sep 09, 2018 2:44 pm

Hi all,

Wanted to post a link to my latest creation - a cover of the classic Duran Duran track which Steve and I switched up into a darker epic style. Love to hear your thoughts.



Cheers

Production is great, you've nailed the eighties vibe right on the head. 8-)

Cheers, CS. :)

Hi Peter,

The strings and brass used in the production are a mixture of ST3 and Miroslav 2 SE sounds.

The strings are (from memory) a couple of single patches from the ST3 factory banks and the brass is a stack of different instruments drawn from the 2 libraries mentioned.

Also the orchestral cymbals come from the orchestral percussion expansion pack

Very cool. I do love that Orchestral Percussion (and Cinematic Percussion) pack!

I will make sure our social media rep sees this and it could be added to our SoundCloud community playlist.

Thanks Peter,

I have both the libraries you mention and indeed they are full of useful gems.
