BEYOND THE STORM
A cinematic orchestral piece with a generous dose of epic! This project puts the whole ensemble through its paces with a traditional approach to writing that explores a wide range of dynamics, colors, and orchestration techniques.
Explore the project file to study how these virtual instruments were programmed, performed, produced, mixed, and finalized as a polished production. Optionally, use it as a template for your own productions, with the mix and plugin settings in tact.
The Project File
All of the MIDI and CC data used to sculpt the final performance
Printed audio STEMS for each section of the orchestra, so you can still hear the project even without owning the sample libraries used.
Expression Maps for convenient articulation management and custom keyswitches
Track layout, signal flow, and routing optimized for flexibility and easy STEM printing
Included is the full orchestral score in PDF format, PLUS separated parts for each orchestral section for easier reading.
Read along with the project and solo individual instruments for detailed study of how written score can translate into a virtual performance.
Parts include: Woodwinds, Brass, Strings, Percussion, Harp and Choir. (includes “easy clef” versions )
Plugins & Production
See how the final mix was shaped using a variety of stock plugins, Spaces II (included in East West’s Composer Cloud), and two free plugins by Tokyo Dawn Labs – no need for paid plugins.
Bypass plugins to hear the before and after to fully understand the importance of production.
Use the settings as presets for your own productions.

No. This project was made with Eastwest's PLAY engine, before OPUS was released.
An OPUS update is due to be released in the future, which will be free for all existing customers.
Yes. You can load the "LITE" project and work with the audio stems that cover all of the used sample libraries, or you can replace the sample libraries used with your own. Note that it will not sound the same as the full mix provided.
Unfortunately, the files included will only work with Cubase. This project is made very specifically for Cubase’s features and the plugins that come with it.
EW Spaces II is known to give a license error on occasion, which means it won't load the impulse response or work unless you re-load a preset. If you experience this with Beyond The Storm, please reload the presets and dial in the settings as outlined in the Reverb Settings document >> HERE <<
