Studio guru Marcus Huyskens gives you an in-depth look at how to take a string arrangement composed in notation software and bring it to life inside your DAW using virtual instruments and more. Shot with Presonus Studio One and Notion, the ideas can also be applied to any DAW and score software!
Marcus begins by welcoming you and discusses the intent behind the series, and reveals the track that will be featured. You'll then get workflow tips and suggestions that will help when dealing with notation based score in your productions.
Next, Marcus shows how to get the MIDI data from your notation software into your DAW, as well as how to import a MusicXML file created by another notation program and tweak it further. Marcus then imports the audio mix into Notion to develop the score further, and adds 3rd party virtual instruments for further sonic choices.
Moving on, you'll explore articulations and playing techniques and how they affect keyswitches, followed by how to add humanization to your score, and see how to export the score along with its virtual instruments into the DAW session.
Mixing is next, and Marcus shows how to set up the rough mix as well as basic routing and effects, and then shows how to adjust velocities to create a realistic balance between the dynamics of the virtual instruments and the rest of your production.
You'll also see how to layer and add additional VIs, making parts sound huge by creating orchestral layers, using expression and modulation continuous controllers for added realism, and lastly, videos on using Logic Pro X and Pro Tools stock virtual instruments when working with score.

This course shows some very interesting workflows, as well as, a more advanced use of Notion 6 as it relates to integration with Studio One 3. The only aspect that bothered me as a composer, was the VST instantiation which used all treble clefs. The alto and bass clefs which were correctly translated from the Sibelius MusicXML file into Notion 6 were somehow changed when the Kontakt 5 was used instead of the stock sounds in Notion. The result was a very sloppy score. (This may sound like nitpicking, but it is elementary in score notation to use the proper clefs for instruments that play in the alto and bass clefs.) Nevertheless, the music is beautiful, and the recorded performances were top notch! The engineering was professional as well. I would really like to purchase the final product. The artist has written a very inspiring composition. Bravo!!! Thank you Groove 3 for offering this excellent course.
