Scoring Synths by Audio Ollie Review
Audio Ollie’s Scoring Synths is unique. Ollie’s synthesized sounds are distinctive and stand out from the crowd. The place to construct a hardware synth and the recording setup are among the most important elements of this composition. When recording, it started by defining a microphone and multiple different microphone positions and also having different special effects which can be plugged into preamps.
Review Setup and BTS
Firstly, your software synth needs to be a complete performing keyboard or a machine in your DAW. If the synth has any glitches it will transfer over to your music.
A lot of producers do not even consider this factor and simply think if the software is a synth it should work with your DAW or computer. It must work as a stand-alone unit in your DAW and have no issues.
Secondly, the second element of audio ollie’s scoring synths audio ollie review is the recording setup. Yes, we are in the DAW, still use a chain of Kush and other vendor plugins to share the sound and give the synth tones some kush vibe.
If you are using a software synth it will need to be in your DAW in order for you to record audio. Your particular setup needs to have at least one input for instruments in order for you to produce any sound when the synth is playing.
Audio Ollie’s Scoring Synths is unique, I am using it as a tool to demo my recordings for clients. It also helps me to quickly play out chord progressions, melodies, and even filter effects that I can transfer into my audio editor to then go back to my workstation.

Scoring Synths Scoring Synths represents the exciting end result of recording two of the most legendary synthesizers in the world reamplifying them into a very popular live room in America and recording a resounding live sound. No single compromise on the audio level has been made between syntheses, preamplifiers, mastering microphones or scoring stages. Scoring synths is a unique sample library. Designed to produce films.
When it comes to recording, it does start with a defining microphone, many different microphone positions and because they are different special effects, all go into a preamp and then onwards to a console and the device (or tape) that is used to record the performance.
The synths have been captured in Studio A – Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studios where the producer did have access to their equipment and the vintage hardware (Mics, Effects, Mic Preamps, Dynamics Processors, Equalizers) in the studio. Audio Ollie did send a review copy with no strings attached.
Scoring Syntheses requires full Kontakt versions, but will not function in free Kontakt-based software samples. The library is downloaded using the tool Continuata Connection.
