I am doing a new String Quartet. Main instruments EWQL SO, solo patches. As a layer per instrument I used GPO solo instruments (Gagli, etc.) at a modest velodicty and volume (CC1).
Presented: right from the Overture box with PerfectSpace and some audio equalizing the first part.
Please comment on the sound of the instruments. Where did I go wrong? And what is wrong? Can I emphasize the cello a bit more? For the seetings I used some pro CD's, but the recording techniques and ambiences were very different. One can hardly use them as "learning material".
Edited: another question came up. I am NOT a violinist. In a score I may write "do this marcato-wise" or "martelé" but who am I to say that, maybe a real violinist plays this better with "starting with a marcato and the following note with spiccato" or else of course. When does the instrumentalist decide which articulation he uses. Looking at some scores of stringquartets only a few contain bowing advices (or articulations) and only when completely different playing is needed in relation to the previous phrases.
Raymond - thinking of taking violin lessons (a sort of demo lessons)
