Music games: who, how, where?

Listen to great music for modern games, and I'm afraid to be fooled: whether it's an orchestral (live) recording or is it a computer? The same Lineage and Morrowind...


Who writes what, are there dedicated resources for playing the music?

If the budget allows, then make a record with a real, live orchestra (if necessary). Usually a lot of details can be gleaned from the diaries of developers (movies, in which the developers talk about the different aspects of creating the game). For example, Heavy Rain (PS3) music recorded with a real orchestra at Abbey Road studios. Game music, to me personally known resource game-ost.ru.
For Morrowind wrote the music Jeremy Soule, one of the most well-known game composers.

See Muz drains, for example . Here the music actually recorded can be found and purchased, as a single, and exclusive. Such sites a lot. I know guitarists who write themselves and put up for sale on drains your records. And they even buy.

As I recall, the Koreans for Lineage2 also used live performers. Saw this info a long time ago, so I can not say, was there a big band or a few musicians.

In most cases, for large projects use music recorded live. For znachitelno usually smaller computer.

www.gamedev.ru/sound/forum/ — it seems if you look you can stumble upon real pros.
