Just completed building a much more powerful desktop composing workstation. CPU processor upgraded from Ryzen 7 to a Ryzen 9 3900x central processing unit that has 12 cores and 24 threads. RAM memory upgraded from 32 GB to a massive 128 GB to handle all the virtual instruments needed for full and complex orchestral compositions. The cpu cooling fan will be upgraded in a few weeks (item on backorder) to the extremely quiet black Noctua NH-D15 chromax.
Acquired Heavyocity’s VENTO woodwind instrument library
Successfully completed part 2 of a two part course sequence in composing music for film and TV from Berklee College of Music. I received grades of A on all my assignments 🙂
Acquired several new instrument libraries during the xmas sale period of 2019– Hans Zimmer Percussion, Orchestral Swarm, Percussion Swarm, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Solo Strings, Eric Whitacre Choir. Also acquired some sound sweetening plugins from Izotope including Neutron Elements, Ozone Elements, and RX 7 audio editor.
Acquired Albion IV UIST, an orchestral film scoring instruments libary for composing film score cues with unusually dark performances from orchestral strings, brass, and woodwinds. This should help in composing film music for thriller and horror film and television shows.
