Samples are used in:


Tools I Used

Quantum Leaps Gypsy VST (has a wonderful flamenco virtual instrument, the violin is very realistic as well, but no match for the real violin used in the track)

Trillion VST for the acoustic bass

Samples I Used

Dimitri Artemenko's violin sample, I was dying to use this one!

And of course the ciggiburns song "Queen of the crows"


I played the guitar track to the vocals (on the keyboard that is,lol). Then I adjusted the time and pitch for the vocals. Oddly, some parts I decided not to try and correct so much, i wanted to keep it as natural as possible. Then I added the accordion track, the cimbalon track, and the bass. I added another bass track for harmonics. Then I recorded the piano track.

Other Notes

I heard this song by ciggiburns and immediately heard the whole arrangement I wanted to do. I was also really excited about finally using the violin sample from Dimitri Artemenko, which I thought was hauntingly beautiful.
