Software I couldn’t live without
I thought I’d share with you a list of some of the software I use on a daily basis that make a huge difference in my workflow and productivity.
My friend Michael Hurwitz, a great composer in his own right, has been developing terrific Lemur and Touch OSC templates for iPad. Controlling my VSL libraries with this is a fantastic experience: http://www.midimockup.com/VSL/lemur.html
Gobbler is a little bit of a revolution when it comes to cloud storage. Gobbler is specially designed to back up DAW projects: https://www.gobbler.com
When working on projects involving a gazillion people, as well as sharing deliverables, my software of choice is DropBox: https://www.dropbox.com/home
In order to keep up with business and personal goals, as well as getting a synthetic view of what I need to accomplish, I am a big fan of Omnifocus. It integrates beautifully with my iPad, too: http://www.omnigroup.com/products/omnifocus
I’ll be sharing a list of my favorite plugins in an upcoming post, so stay tuned!
My team and I wish you excellent holidays! This is also a time for me to reflect upon those less fortunate than I. On a more trivial note, this is also a time during which I put on much not-needed weight!
A lot of things have been going on here in the studio, and I look forward to a quieter holiday season… in 2013.
“HARD” – music for the trailer is complete
Edouard Brenneisen just wrapped up the music for the trailer for “HARD”, a movie directed by Garry Moore and produced by S.H.A.M. Films. The trailer features impressive, raw performances by talented young British actresses.
Here is what director Garry Moore has to say about working with Edouard: “Thank you very much for your work on the trailer and for the fast turn around. It’s an incredible piece of music that enhances the mood and feeling of the film.”
Catch a sneak peek of the music here:

I hope you’ve enjoyed Thanksgiving (for those of you who do, in fact, celebrate such a holiday), and that your wallet isn’t bleeding too much money on this cyber Monday 😉
My team and I have been busy with a number of things, and as well as getting ready for upcoming projects. Most importantly, my new studio is almost ready (in fact, I am typing these lines sitting at my workstation there). If I don’t get too busy I’ll make sure to post pictures.
