Cubase 12 is the brand new upgrade to Steinberg's music production software - but is it the greatest!? Join Guy as he looks at the new features and takes it for a spin.
Cubase Quick Controllers are an incredibly powerful way to control and create amazing tracks in real-time. In this demonstration, Guy Michelmore shows you how to link up Quick Controllers to hardware controllers to transform your workflow and add so much more expression to your music.
Irregular time signatures like 5/4 or 7/8 present both opportunities and challenges for film and games composers. In this real-time scoring tutorial, Guy Michelmore takes Orchestral Tools Metropolis Ark series of libraries and scores a short action cue in a weird and wonderful time signature.
Ever wanted to know what controllers Guy uses?
What's this? Guy has changed up his template again?

Writing orchestral music for film traditionally involves big templates with thousands of tracks. But as we enter 2022, is there a more effective alternative to the traditional approach?
Merry Christmas Everybody!
Celebrating the holiday season, join Guy Michelmore for some festive cheer writing a Christmas tune using Vienna Symphonic Library's complete Synchron Orchestra. The recently released Sunchron woodwind and Synchron Harp both ferature prominently in this Christmas Special!
Spitfire Audio have just released the second library in their partnership with the famous Abbey Road Studios in London. This is a very distinctive solo string library underpinned by some very promising new software. The sound is very different to other solo string libraries. So how does it sound in practice? Guy Michelmore has been trying it out and puts it in context with pop arrangement and a piece of contemporary drama.
Want to create your own synth sounds from scratch? Break out of the world of the preset and learn to programme your own! It’s not rocket science and once you get to grips with the basic structure all synths use, you are on your way. Join Guy Michelmore as he shows you how to create a synth patch from scratch in minutes.
It's the Black Friday Weekend again and this year Spitfire have produced a bonkers library of instruments played through 56 cabinets and 4 subs in the Air Lyndhurst Hall. But what does it sound like? Guy Michelmore has been finding out.

Once he leveled up enough, he soon enrolled in a journey that led him to meet other weird creatures, who loved sounds as much as he does.
Following their path, he learned tips and tricks of the job.
When he's not working, he's with friends and family watching films, playing games, going to concerts and live chatting... or together with a good cup of tea.
He recently finished working on Baldur's Gate 3 as Audio Lead, where his most precious achievement is DEFINITELY the cat sounds.

Meet the team: Matthew Besler!
“I have been a sound designer and audio engineer for the better part of 25 years.

I got my start in the film, television, marketing and advertising industry as an audio editor and sound designer and made the transition to video games in 2006 where I was with BioWare for 13 years as a senior sound designer and narrative audio supervisor.

Upon leaving BioWare in 2019, I have been freelance for just about 4 years now, involved predominantly in the video games industry as a senior sound designer and audio producer.

My wife Mary and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with our two dogs, Eugene and Emmy. In my free time I enjoy reading, playing video games, making model planes and ships and taking my dogs to the dog park.

I am looking forward to meeting with all of you and being involved in your journey!”

Meet the ThinkSpace team: David Denyer!
David is a composer, violinist and sound artist. His work is challenging, striving to explore the darkest and most uncomfortable corners of sound, being most active in London's experimental theatre scene. His recent work with Collide Theatre, Kafka’s Metamorphosis (2019), sought to expose the horrors of ostracism through a score built on familiar classical tradition, warped beyond recognition. Their experimental opera, Troy (2018), aimed to expose the complicity of their own audiences in the violent atrocities of war.
Other theatre work, with Dirty Rascals, explores the blurring of the lines between musical performance, drama, and performance art. Fascinated by non linear music, he joined the Faceless game development team in 2014, as a composer, sound designer and programmer, helping them finally release their first videogame (The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story) in 2019. More recently, he co-founded Wormtea, a sound-game production duo with acclaimed composer Sami El-Enany, releasing their first game (with the support of the BBC and the ICA) Deadly Structures, in 2019.
He also composes for film (being featured recently on HBO, National Geographic, and the Bodleian Library), live art, and he currently plays in a number of London-based bands.
David drinks black coffee, and listens to black metal. When threatened, David can propel voluminous quantities of thick black ink towards his foes. This allows him to make a speedy getaway, hiding under a nearby rock.

Meet the ThinkSpace Team: Michael Worth!
Mike is one of TSE's resident video game music and sound design tutors, and a complete progressive rock and retro video game music nerd. He works in the mobile and independent game industry, and thinks that Final Fantasy VI might be the greatest video game score ever written. Mike started in the television industry in New York City, but moved to video games in 2009, and never looked back. You might know Mike from his Youtube series, Farkle Fridays, where he discusses music theory and composition whilst sampling quality bourbon. Fun trivia for Mike; when he's not farkling around in the studio, he's a certified boxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu coach, and often shows up to tutor sessions with a smartly dressed black eye! 🙂

Meet the ThinkSpace team: Arhynn Descy! ✈️
Arhynn is a film composer and pianist, frequently flitting around the world with a full travel 'studio' in her hand luggage. Originally from South Africa, she now divides her time between London and LA.

Arhynn loves to write music for musicians, ranging from solo instruments to full orchestra and will always try to sneak in live players into in her synth and sample scores. Her favourite place is in the studio, fingers on the keys of a piano, hearing her music come alive for the first time.

Arhynn's compositional output is mainly for feature films, but during the pandemic Arhynn released an album called Postcards from a Pandemic, which features 10 short pieces of music for solo instruments, each of which was recorded by the musicians in their homes during lockdown.
One of the greatest honours of her professional life thus far was to be invited to become a member of the Oscars Academy.

Other than coffee, home-cooked food (with a glass of wine... of course) or a good book, Arhynn loves flying. She has a private pilot license and will find any excuse to take to the skies in a 4-seater plane.

Meet the ThinkSpace team: Richard Wilkinson!

From his studio in Brighton, UK, Richard Wilkinson draws on a rich variety of musical inspirations, from his brass band upbringing in Lancashire, to classical piano training and creative sound-manipulation from his years of experience as a sound designer.

His music for videogames and feature films is bold, melodic, charismatic and painstakingly crafted, whether it’s an expansive, thematic orchestral score or an intimate, textural minimalist sound. In recent years, he’s worked on several high-profile videogame and VR projects, like Narcos: Rise of the Cartels, with its ronroco and charango-led folky score, reminiscent of Pedro Bromfman’s excellent work on the original Neflix series.

Narcos featured a music system designed to sound like a semi-improvisational South American folk ensemble accompanying the peaks and troughs as the action unfolds – it was praised for its authenticity as well as the dynamic, scored-to-picture effect it produced during gameplay.

His work in the Doctor Who universe has been warmly received by fans and critics, with a critically-acclaimed soundtrack to the first ever feature-length VR episode of the show, Doctor Who: The Edge of Time. The score (recently released as a collectors’ edition vinyl LP) is a mix of orchestral, melodically-led thematic work, alongside plenty of the kind of sonic experimentation that goes to the heart of the show and harks back to Delia Derbyshire’s work with the Radiophonic Workshop.

He has recorded a new version of the iconic Doctor Who theme to be used in two upcoming Doctor Who games in 2021.

Richard is currently working on the music for the upcoming Doctor Who game The Edge of Reality, having completed an orchestral session at Air studios in London in December 2020, and the upcoming Peaky Blinders VR game, with Cillian Murphy Paul Anderson reprising their roles from the smash-hit TV series.


Meet the ThinkSpace team: Noa Beazley!

Noa is a Boston-based composer for video games. Primarily a drummer at heart, Noa is a multi-instrumentalist, and features her own playing on her tracks as often as she can. She specializes in making realistic orchestral mockups, but believes that sneaking in a budget for a player, or two, or four is an invaluable addition to any piece of music. In addition to tutoring at ThinkSpace, Noa is an organizer at Game Audio Boston, and an ambassador for Women in Games.


Meet the ThinkSpace Team: Jake Few!

Jake is our marketing guy, so any mailout or advertising you see on the web is his territory. He also works with Jenny on the degree recruitment side of things so you'll often see him around in our support inbox.

He is a huge musical theatre fan, and was musical director of the Off West End musical Lovestuck. He is also a multi-instrumentalist, mostly focussing on piano and guitar.

Away from ThinkSpace he is a keen mixologist, especially whiskey-based drinks! 🥃
