    Life's Journey

    Serenity musician said in the General Discussion that maybe we should write a tune while waiting for the new GPO5 to come out.

    Well, I did and GPO5 is still not available. But, if you would like to hear some GPO4 strings in a new song then give a listen to this:

    Life's Journey

    It is a slideshow including some of my favorite photos that I have taken the past few years. I hope you enjoy it. The only Garritan used was the strings but they are important to the piece. The Tenor Sax is me playing.

    I listen to this and wonder, "How much more do we need to sound really good?" Sure I'm going to buy GPO 5 if it ever comes out, but I doubt I'll use it to come up with something this good.

    Thanks Tom. I appreciate the comment. It is not that hard to come up with good sounds when you have GPO working for you plus some of the other sounds I used. What is the hardest is mixing them and creating a sound palate that works. It has taken me years to understand (and it still doesn't always happen) the art of mixng. It is like painting and I'm afraid I am only at the Grandma Moses ability level here compared to many others. Mine are quant at times but generally Americana in nature. I do it for fun and relaxation. Music and photography do that for me.

    Very nice, Mister Rich! I like it, you old tenor-man you. Fine playing too.

    Your slide show is neat. The pix are beautiful.

    Thank you for posting this.

    My best to you.

    Hi Richard,

    This is a most surprising piece. I've noticed all the different libraries and software you've used, which makes the mix even more difficult, but you've managed to realise a wonderful final mixed balance. My compliments for the exquisite saxophone line too!

    I enjoyed every second of it. The pictures make it even more beautiful! Congrats for them too!

    Thanks Max. I am glad you enjoyed the presentation both in music and photos. The pictures are ones I have taken over the past few years and I thought they would fit the piece and the message I was trying to convey.

    You are right. The hardest part of any piece of music is getting a mix right so all the instruments have their own space and add to the piece and not detract. I am glad you thought that was accomplished.
