I just posted a performance of the Mahler 5th symphony adagietto.
Any feedback (good or bad) would be appreciated. I created a string sound by blending neigboring samples from Dan Dean Solo Strings. The gigs use breath controller for amplitude with layered stacatto samples controlled by velocity. I created string glissandos using two tracks with pitch bends and cross fades. In some places I used this method to try and create a better legato, rather than for a slide effect, although the technique I\'m using is currently rather cumbersome.
The harp is Garritan\'s. I couldn\'t afford the Garritan strings, but I would love to get them at some point(if I can convince my wife!).
I\'m not sure about the way I mixed the sounds down.. perhaps too much reverb and bass. I\'m finding that over some cheap speakers it sounds especially boomy and the harp is too wet. Also this was tricky because of the large dynamic range(which also made hiss a problem). Perhaps the loud bits are too much?
