Metropolis Ark 4

I think this sounds very interesting! Fluid and realistic. Crisp and focused.

Could be great for both classical orchestral writing and more epic stuff...

not so much

seems more like the Bernard herman/First chair for the ark stuff

http://www.orchestraltools.com/resource ... _Ark_4.pdf

mostly weird combinations, which I like - but they aren't solo.

so if you've always wanted muted bass trombone and contrabass clarinet duct taped together - now's your chance!

holy shit lmao, sabotaged

welp I guess that's 20 minutes down the drain.

my friend was over IRL, asking me how to get his voice sounding better for his stream, was showing him how to apply VSTs, and I literally have an amp simulator(one of the lepou's I think?) on my microphone just to show him where the VST would go

sorry about that... ill just pretend I was trying to be kylo ren

I plan on buying 1 and 2 today if i can get to the bank

for someone like you:
ark 1 is an "epic" library. Sometimes this is large ensembles - but mainly actually due to the dynamics.

iirc its dynamics are literally mf-fff

that said, there is no way to reproduce that sound outside of actually recording it.


so 3 bass bone doesn't seem too crazy but they won't play softly.

ark 3 on the other hand is much softer(that's the idea) so has much softer dynamics with these abnormally large ensembles...

from me to you- makes mocking Zimmer easier, but I honestly think you as an orchestrator could have some fun.

ark 1 and 2 brass sections look like this :

4 trumpet
3 bass trumpet
9 horns
3 horns
3 bass trombone
3 cimbassi
3 tuba
3 euphoniums
3 Wagner tuba(I think?)


and using 3 euphoniums instead of 3 trombones would certainly give a passage a different flavor

and all of them together seem other worldly.

plus you'd have a monstrous low wind section XD

btw, first walkthrough


I think this is going to be great, mainly because of the string section layering


problem with ark 3 quintet is that it doesn't have long notes
