Anyone A Fan of Guy Michelmore on YouTube?

Post by GraysonPeddie »

I've been watching his videos from time to time and I am a huge fan of him with cool orchestral music. Having Kontakt could open a huge door for music production and I love to make use of high-end sample libraries that I cannot use in Linux.

I love to have some epic drums that are used in TRON: Legacy. Anyone a fan of TRON: Legacy?

Here's another video that got me hooked into such an awesome melody that got stuck in my mind from time to time.

I also enjoyed this video demonstrating the free Spitfire orchestra library.

Honestly, if I do buy a Mac Mini along with Kontakt, I'd get the feeling I'd leave the Linux musician community behind. Why? Because I love to write some big-sounding orchestral music with a combination of synthwave or even EDM -- something I could never dream of writing instrumental music in Linux. Sure, I do have Digital Sound Factory that is in SoundFont format, but it's not the best-sounding library by any means and I'm willing to step up to something more expensive. And no, don't get me started with Windows 10. I don't like the look of the taskbar and window elements compared to Windows 7. And because Windows 7 is end-of-life and I can't stand the look and feel of Windows 10, I would much rather have a Mac Mini once I get a job (hopefully soon, as I'm getting into the career of IT).

Maybe then, I could improve my 3 songs with Spitfire's sample library. But then I would take away the impression that all of my songs were exclusively written in Linux.

No one seems to be interested in his videos... Oh well. I guess the Linux musician community does not care about symphonic orchestra. I will delete my thread if no one is interested in starting a conversation. Not my place to bump my thread.

Guy's a great guy and I enjoy his videos. Kontakt runs just fine on GNU/Linux (at least version 5, I've not tried v6). There are also plenty of orchestral libraries that run natively on GNU/Linux without the need for a proprietary player like Kontakt.

This guy has been burning YouTube for years.
His optimistic delivery and enthusiasm for sample libraries and composition is infectious.
I never miss one of his videos.
