Our guest today is composer, producer, and co-founder of Cinesamples, Mike Patti. Mike started Cinesamples in 2007 when he saw an opportunity to create niche libraries to fill holes in the marketplace. Since then they have grown it to become one of the go to orchestral library developers for composers around the globe. As a composer Mike has done work with Disney Parks and video games such as Starcraft 2 and League of Legends. We have a great chat about composing for media, running a business, anticipating the marketplace, and the importance of defining your own success.
