    Conclusion (1:47)


In this Groove3 video series, DAW guru Gary Hiebner reveals the steps to take to build a powerful Orchestral Template that you can use time and time again, as a great starting point when creating cinematic orchestral type productions.

Gary begins by welcoming you, and then discusses why you need a template for cinematic orchestral composing and how it can benefit your workflow. Software and hardware requirements are then gone over, plus a look at what will be covered in the series.

Starting at the beginning, Gary shows some VEPro specific options and setup tips, followed by some Cubase and Logic setup help, plus the different ways they each prefer to work with VEPro.

You’ll then see how to set up and build your Strings, Brass, Woodwind and Percussion sections so they’re ready for action at a moment’s notice, followed by ways to add Choir tracks to the mix, as well as Hybrid elements such Synths, Pads, Soundscapes, Whooshes, Impact sounds, and an emotive Piano.

Gary wraps up the video series with tutorials on balancing your volumes and panning in the template, adding Reverbs, template optimization techniques and more.

See the individual tutorial descriptions for detailed info. If you’re into producing and writing orchestral or cinematic compositions, see how a template can boost your creativeness and productivity… Watch “Designing Cinematic Orchestral Templates” today.

Geared to Logic and Cubase

There are some good suggestions and takeaways, but lots of information is specific to Logic or Cubase, so those of us with other DAWs aren't going to get quite as much out of the series. Still there is value in it, especially if bought as a bundle.

Response from Customer Service:

Thank you for your review!
Although Gary does spend a few videos focusing on Cubase and Logic as those are the DAW's in his studio, the majority of the videos have information and techniques that can be applied across all DAW's including setup, adding VEPro, building instruments, and creating templates.

A must have

So Excited. An advanced Tutorial to demonstrate VEPro6. The teacher's detailed knowledge about CBase as well as Logic and that trick of using scrips is impressive. But no word mentioned about Pro Tools that in 2018.3 improved their midi abilities? I felt a lack of musicianship especially when talks about woodwinds...and no comments about the tricks to using score editors or perhaps integrate this with Sibelius would have been a nice addition. I wish some words about controllers and how they are used by the pro composers i this mock orchestra? A MUST HAVE CLASS thank you Groove 3 for expanding on this creative aspect of our amazing tools.
