  1. I think this is an excellent opportunity to get your creative juices flowing. The endless possibilities available open any aspiring musician to expand their craft and explore the depths of their composition quality and ability. I would love to compose, record, produce, and play music — I am a lyricist. That said, the Hollywood Orchestra Opus Edition seems to favor the musically inclined or passionate about the subject matter. I appreciate the customariness embedded in this article.

  2. Hi, 

    This is informative indeed! 

    I will definitely refer your review to one of my students who always dreamed to have a home recording studio. I want to know the following: How big in terms of space you need to have for a home recording studio? Your answer will be appreciated.

    Thank you so much. 

    Aubin T.

    • Hello Aubin, I’m glad the article was helpful to you and maybe it will be for your student also.

      You can set up a home studio in any size space.  I think where there is a will there is a way.

      I have a lot of great articles to help you get started with a home recording studio.  One article that will talk some about space requirements is an article about studio monitors: Are Studio Monitors Necessary?

      Be sure and check it out and let me know if you have questions. 



  3. Wow, this system sounds phenomenal.  

    I have been looking into purchasing something like this for two reasons. 

    Initially, I was tired of the stock music available on the internet that I was actually allowed to use in my Youtube videos without getting copyright infringement.  I figured, why not make my own?  (I know, I know, I am ever the ambitious one.) 

    I knew it would not be an easy task, but the more I looked into producing music with virtual instrument programs like this one, the more interested I was in learning how to master the art of making music.  Secondly, I have decided to take up making music virtually as my new hobby! (Maybe even making some YouTube content about the learning process!)

    I am finally at a point where I would like to purchase a program and this is the most in-depth review I have found on the internet so far.  

    The fact that this program is used industry-wide says it all.  

    Also, I love how clean the interface looks and I have only found positive sentiments regarding the program thus far. 

    Wish me luck in my new endeavor! 

    I am up for the challenge of learning how to use these programs!  

    Thanks for the info. 

    • EastWest Sounds Hollywood Orchestra OPUS Edition is a phenomenal virtual instrument and is perfect for composing and creating your own music with ease.

      If you want to start your new hobby on the right foot this is a great way to get started.

      If you need a midi keyboard to get started, I have an article that goes along with this article and may be helpful to you.  Should I Get A 61 Or 88 Key Keyboard? 

      You will need a midi keyboard to kick off your journey so be sure and check this article out also.
