Here's my first work done with GPO. To be honest, I'm not sure whether I like it -- I think I've listened to it too much while 'tweaking' and lost my objectivity. My wife says she likes it a lot, but then again she'd be supportive if it sounded like hammered horseradish. I need some feedback from you folks who haven't been burned out by it yet. and aren't obligated to like it...
This is a little piece I wrote for Brass Quintet, titled "Need." I initially wrote it in Finale 2004, then exported it to a MIDI file and did the "serious" MIDI editing with Midi Maestro 4. MIDI playback from MM4, using Bidule to host GPO so I could insert some EQ into the two trumpets to take a little of the 'edge' off of them (we really could use a little darker trumpet sound, Gary -- or, a nice shepherd's crook cornet ) Reverb courtesy of Ambience.
Your feedback is both welcome and solicited -- I need to hear this through a set of untainted ears.
