By Richard Pryn •  Updated: 11/03/20 •  1 min read

Hi guys!

On todays walk I talk about the essentials you need to start
making trailer music. I also go through what I use the most, and what
is popular around the community.

My essentials are these, but I talk about a load of options in this episode:

Strings: Spitfire Audio Albion One ( the old version)
Drums: Spitfire Audio Hans Zimmer Percussion
Brass: Metropolis Ark, Hollywood Brass, Albion Brass
Piano: Native Instruments Alicia’s Keys,  Spitfire Audio Labs Soft Piano ( Free)
Synth: Spectrasonics Omnisphere
Bass:  Spectrasonics Trillian
Choir: AudioBro Children’ Choir, Performance Samples Oceania.

When I mention Cinesamples Symphonic Strings I am really talking about
Cinematic Studio Strings. Which is amazing!

Hey there. I am an award winning composer for movie trailers, including Bladerunner 2049, Diablo II, WandaVision, and loads more. I am the founder of The Trailer Music School where my aim is to teach everything I know about music composition, production, and generally being a functional human being. I podcast, blog, vlog and jog (sometimes). I also love coffee, nachos and self-improvement. I live with my wife, three kids and numerous pets. I am also known by my pseudonym, Richard Schrieber (it’s a long story).
