So what did I do last weekend? Didn’t really composed anything, but I got to learn a lot about DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), and a whole bunch of audio stuff I’ve never heard of - VST, Plug-ins, Sequencers, etc.
Just made a new composer friend Evan Pattison from my Portuguese class. He had been composing since 7 years old, and released an album - Neptune last year. His music focus on video games, which me too! I have so much to learn and discuss with him. What a pleasure, I’m so excited! ;)
Found a great youtube channel VirtualMusicTutorial, the owner of the channel, Lars Eichstaedt, super nice and helpful. He had been answering my doubts in the last few days on his facebook page. His channel teaches how to make virtual instruments sounds realistic and “alive”. The facebook page is starting to grow and have a healthy community.
After 10 years of piano learning and 20 years of piano playing (well, in the pass 10 years, I only managed to play once in a while), I am now on a journey of “self-learning music composing”!
