MIDI Study Pack #2 - Hillsdale by Forte Composer Academy

MIDI Study Pack #2 - Hillsdale

In this educational pack I use my lively period-drama style track "Hillsdale", as an orchestration case study for using woodwinds and strings to carry the rhythm and propel an energetic track forwards.

This MIDI Study Pack serves as an in-depth orchestration and composition lesson, and provides an opportunity for the kind of detailed study one would undertake with full orchestra scores.

Inside This Pack

This MIDI Study Pack comes packed in .zip format and contains the following files:

    • .mid  - This is a MIDI file, which can be opened in any DAW or notation program (although opening it in a DAW like Cubase or Logic is recommended).
    • .cpr - This is a Cubase 10 Project File. If you are a Cubase user you might get more insight into the creation of this piece by using this file instead of the midi.
    • .wav stems - Audio stems of each major instrumental section for listening reference
    • .mp3 - This is the final, mixed version of the piece for your listening reference.
    • .pdf - Readme and Study Guide
The attached PDF doubles as a readme for information on how to use these files as well as notes that turn this study experience into a guided composition/orchestration lesson complete with assignments and recommended exercises of your own.
