Oh so many bits of stolen goods here: any of the Halo game soundtracks, any of the Lord of the Rings soundtracks, Thomas the Tank Engine “Day of the Diesels” soundtrack – thanks Daxy! 🙂 .
Tried to focus on using mostly Mattias Westlund’s free “Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra” library (http://sso.mattiaswestlund.net/), just to see what it can do. It’s a pretty generous contribution of time and effort to composers everywhere, so check it out if you’re into writing Virtual Symphonic music. And send him a “thank-you” via email – he appreciates knowing that people are utilizing his work!
He writes some great game soundtrack music, too – http://mattiaswestlund.net/?page_id=9, so be sure and check that out, too!
Octobahn/tom bits at the beginning are 8Dio’s “Epic Room Percussion”, a great sound library company that has some truly fantastic sounds.
