    divertimento

    Posted earlier as Divertimento 1 but wrote 2nd movement so here are they together.
    The first movement is Mexican (Spanish) flavors, the second is Hungarian. I spend almost 50 % of my retired life here in Mexico, still, Hungarian-Canadian ...

    I remember the first part. It is quiet and soothing. The orchestration is nice and works quite well. I love the flute melody, but being a woodwind specialist, I guess I would be partial to flute and clarinet. Is this all done in Garritan sounds? You really didn't say and I was only wondering. I don't get that same quality of strings as you managed to do. The two parts really do work well together and I don't really hear one as Mexican and the other as Hungarian. I hear a well constructed melding pot of music with influences from Canada, Mexico and Hungary and most importantly the "Ted" influence!

    Well done, Ted, well done!

    Thanks Rich.
    It is all GPO4.
    I was listening to your tango, and it made me think of your strings, they do not sound as they should.
    Two main controls I use, 1./ the send setting in the mixer page of Aria, the little pointer should be at least in the 9 o'clock position or higher, and 2./, cc11 for volume. Attack I control with velocity, cutting back on the velocity to reduce attack. Even then, I am not happy with GPO strings, my old Gigastudio 3 and Hunter's Emerald strings were better.
    Do you use section strings as separate tracks for violin1,2,viola,cello and bass or use a general Strings track?
    Thanks again for you comments.

    I do all of that Ted. I have each string section but I also include all the soloists at different positions in the mix to simulate chairs in the orchestra. My strings are bright and a bit strident. Yours are gentle.

    The Tango section of my piece is fine with the strings as such but the back up to the lament melody they are too strident. I don't use CC11 but CC1 for dynamics. I turn all the velocities down low except where I specifically want an attack. I set the CC7 volume at the beginning of each track and maybe that is the problem. I have the volume slider at about 96 in a slider from 0-127. I have not heard much in the sound by using CC11 as well as CC1. But maybe CC11 being expression there is a difference in tone quality and I should check it out.

    Again, your piece is beautifully done and I really enjoyed listening to it. Thank you for the suggestions for my work.
