Becker\'s recent reports on his efforts to get a good solo violin inspired this little experiment in slicing and dicing DDSV to get a little bit more timbral variety:
Never mind the guitar part; I didn\'t give it the same attention I gave the violin part.
At this point I\'ve done so much tweaking and listening I can\'t tell whether I\'ve made DDSV sound better or worse, or both. I\'m especially interested in what y\'all violinists would have to say.
Please do know that I started with someone else\'s midi file, taken from one of the big midi archives -- but I chose it because it was the flattest rendering I could find, with no CC\'s, and I flattened tempo and velocity before I began. I did leave some of the staccato articulations in the guitar part, though.
If this is so bad that it\'s embarrassing to comment on it, I guess I\'d like to know that, too.
