TECH-TRACK N° 25
The Eighth Wonder by Troels Folmann
This is one of my favorite tracks of all time. Not necessarily because of its compositional qualities, but because I haven’t really been able to surpass it in raw power for years.
The demo was primarily written with our Majestica library, which features a true 240-piece orchestra. The orchestra features a 100-piece string section, 60-piece brass section, 60-piece woodwind sections and a 20-piece percussion section. Majestica is the first true super-sized symphony orchestra and just burns through your mix like nothing else.
Let me describe the track in a little more detail:
00:00-00:25 —- The demo begins with the 20-piece percussion ensemble from Majestica. It radically builds up and becomes a more violent. I also added some swooshes from Hybrid Tools 3 into it.
00:25-00:45 —- The track starts picking up again – using arpeggiators from our Animalix library and slowly introducing our Lacrimosa Choir. You also start hearing both strings and brass from Majestica.
00:45-01:05 —- The track opens up with string/brass staccato from Majestica, the “AH” staccato from Majestica, Anvils/Perc from Majestica Percussion and synth basses from our V8P 8W library, which is the bigbrother to Majestica – several times bigger.
01:15-01:52 —- Everything changes color. A more tech/snappy type of drumkit from our 8D8 library joins, while the beautiful phrases of our Laurie library are added. One of my favorite parts of the demo.
01:52-02:42 —- I get easily bored as a composer, so changing the color again. This time going into another epic build up – featuring Majestica Brass, Majestica Percussion, 8W Basses, Laurie Haus towards the end of this segment.
02:42-03:17 —- Why not switch it up again and use a combination of synths from our Animalix library, while a drumkit from 8D8 is playing behind it.
03:17-03:40 —- Another short powerburst. The segment is mixing both 8W Brass, Strings together with both Hybrid Tools 2 and 3 Megahorns layered together. Sometimes you gotta go to great lengths to get that right big sound.
03:40-04:15 —- The track is heading towards its conclusion (thank god). All of Majestica builds up together with Lacrimosa. 8W synth basses.
04:15-05:11 —- The track reaches its end with a gorgeous atmosphere by Steve Tavaglione from our AGE library (easily in my top 5 sample library ever made). Soft Brass swells from Majestica and the sound of Laurie’s beautiful alto voice. She is just the best at that style.
Hope that gives a little bit of insight.
