Thank you Kevin! Was by accident I guess... but I think I had the Christmas spirit on me when I started composing it
Thank you StarCrunch! I'm using Cubase 12 as DAW, but honestly you can use almost anyone that can work with VSTs. One important thing without doubt is the quality of sound of the VST, which in my case most of them, with the exception of the harp and piano, was from Spitfire Professional. Although I think what matters more is how you work the MIDI, I mean, the CC of expression and vibrato mostly. Following that, in the Mix, what I do is removing frequencies to avoid frequency stacking (mostly on the sub-bass area), add some analogic saturation and perhaps an EQ to make more present (or less) some instruments. About FX I remove the microphones of the VST and better use Reverb to emulate the planes or positions of the orchestra. If you understand how to work that, you might be able to do the same process in any DAW. I wrote a tutorial about how to do that, is free to download, but is not finished and is in Spanish. The chapters I wrote are about using Kontakt with Cubase, how to open outputs, import MIDI to DAW, colorize channels and organization stuff, balancing audio before the mix, group and FX channel routing and the use of CCs like expression and vibrato. If you are interested I could share you the link.
So I managed to scare my chief. Between shifts I had an appointment with my psychiatrist, so prior to it I'd told him "If I ain't coming today, they've kept me there.". Then as I was asleep, my phone died. So I overslept and through the entire time I was unreachable.
