One thing is for sure!

It's a great time to be an orchestral composer. We have an incredible array of orchestral sounds right at our fingertips. We voice a chord on our midi keyboards and an entire section jumps out of our speakers.

And if you only have a few ideas to orchestrate, it's fantastic. But what happens if your composition starts to get more complex?

The ideas keep coming and you start adding more and more tracks to your masterpiece. Then pretty soon you're spending more time adding tracks and selecting instruments than you are creating music. 

And that's not all.  You notice that your system starts freaking out with all the extra load you're giving it. And when you do finally get it to where you want it, you've got to do the whole thing all over again for your next project. 

There must be an easier way!

Set and Forget

You need a system that lets you get on with composing rather than fighting against you every step of the way. You need a system that preloads a selection of quick sketching patches for those moments of inspiration. You need all your favorite instruments 'on hand so you're not wasting time loading them up every time you want them.

What you really need is a well-designed 'template' that can load into your DAW before each project.

Maybe you already knew that. Maybe you've tried to set a template for yourself but given up because it seemed way too hard. 

Yes! Setting up a great template can be a chore for some people but let me tell you, once you've got it right, you won't ever go back to not using one again.

Stories on Template Creation

Pleasant Surprise

I tried composing when I was a young clarinet player, but without any concept of musical harmony I was just terrible at it. Many years later, at the age of 38, I began doing some jazz improvisation that required me to learn music theory, and then I began learning piano. Now I really enjoy using my new skills to compose fun music.

Jared Clark
Self-employed Consultant. Riverton (United States)
It's been amazing!

Starting by going through the libraries and general setup/workflow has been extremely helpful, and has allowed me to make a nice orchestral template in Logic that I've found extremely helpful in being creative.
