I’m not sure whether I had high expectations for the music of Mass Effect 3. Safe to say, it wasn’t as good as it could or should have been, but that it’s not bad by any stretch of imagination, it even came with a single track that’ll surely be remembered.
The original Symphobia by ProjectSAM is a comprehensive orchestral sample library with very solid quality across the board. Sonically, it’s one of the best ones out there. Its successor, quite conveniently named Symphobia 2, focuses less on replacing or improving the already existing samples, and instead features quite a few legato ensembles and solo instruments.
This is a big look at the music of Dragon Age, including tracks from both games, as composed by Inon Zur. Among others, I’ve transcribed I Am the One (High Fantasy), Rogue Heart and the Ostagar Battle Theme (missing from the released OST). All the sheet music is available for download.
The soundtrack to BioWare’s space epic Mass Effect 2 seems to be quite popular among aspiring musicians and composers. Apart from its absolutely epic title theme, the second most popular track is the Romance track, called Reflections. This is my arrangement of that.
This is my first piano album, composed during the latter half of 2011.
This is my piano arrangement of Time from Inception, by Hans Zimmer.
