Introduction and a Question: Looking for a Serpent
I got GPO a couple of month\'s ago and have been reading the forum for a while and thought I finally jump in the loop and say hello. Unfortunely, I haven\'t had too much time to work with GPO exclusively but from the little that I have experimented with it, I think it is great!
Now for a question:
I am working on a piece called \"Song of the Serpent\" and I am primarly using GPO for the orchestration but I am missing one essential instrument - a Serpent. Does anybody know of any decent patches in any format for a Serpent.
So far, the only thing I have found was a patch in Sibelius but I don\'t own it and not sure how authentic it is.
I was thinking that I could mess around with a saxophone sample to mimic the ancient instrument but of course, I want to try and be as authentic as possible.
Any advice anybody could offer is greatly apprecieated.

If you are ambitious, you could edit out each note of the wave file, do some cleaning and tweaking in a sound editor, and map it in a sampler in order to make a Serpent patch.

I\'m not knowledgeable of sound editing... Can someone recommend a sound editor?, and what software products can I use to map the sounds in a sampler to achieve a patch? I don\'t see anything like that in Cubasis.
I assume given any set of wave files I can map whatever I want into a single patch? For example, If I recorded banging on things from my kitchen I could per personal preparation and persistance produce a pure patch of pots and pans--perhaps? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
