Topic: Legato symphonic

    Legato symphonic

    Would very much appreciate comments on attempts at string legato! I just posted the third try of a very short snippet from the opening of a piece (my opus 80, a work in progress). Three mp3 files at a web page :

    http://mysite.verizon.net/guglielmo (includes a gif image of the score excerpt)

    These links should go straight to the three mp3 examples; the third is best, surely, but would like comments, even "sorry, it still sounds like synthesizers"!

    Thumbs up Re: Legato symphonic

    The first snippet sounded slightly synthy but expectable. The second had more attack, which eliminated the sense of synth sound. The third was downright outright cool and not synthy at all. Pretty cool all in all!

    I got that once too, and don't understand it -- try again, perhaps this free website only allows one user to access at a time?

    On to number 4 now, adding the violas legato with horns, bassoon, etc. Still a short excerpt, same location: http://mysite.verizon.net/guglielmo

    Took down try #1, since it was clearly worse!

    Some of you may remember this -- have kept at it. Had some setbacks from unwanted phase effects that came from using duplicated lines for the same instruments. Newest mix, just 20 seconds, uses three string sample packages together, and is the richest I've ever gotten in similar efforts.

    Just three lines in the music (at the beginning): timpani, double bass in unison/octaves and a passionate melodic line in the 'celli.

    The 'principal' cello line uses VSL Horizon solo strings, the main cello part is GOS, several articulations (Cellos SusV LET, Grand Detache UpDn, Portato, Martele, and SusRich LEG), and the third cello part doubles using AO celli section. The double bass is GOS and AO sections, and the timpani is from a Kurzweil 2600 Orchestral Rom.

    Comments welcome; this mix also benefited from finally buying good studio monitors and learning a little more about eq.

    The mp3 (128 Kbps) is at http://www.soundclick.com/bands/7/guglielmomusic.htm "Gugliel Mix Example"
    and there is a larger wav file at http://mysite.verizon.net/guglielmo/...xample_new.wav

    For some reason the mp3 links didn't work. I'll try again and look forward to hearing them.

    The mis-typing curse must have struck again. The file at my soundclick music page is called "Gugliel mix example'.

    On the verizon page there is now a copy of the mp3 at http://mysite.verizon.net/guglielmo/...xample_new.mp3

    (file name "gug_mix_example_new.mp3", don't know why the forum software compresses links this way... )

    and of the wav at

    (file name "gug_mix_example_new.wav")

    Did these links by cut and paste so hopefully they'll work. The verizon site occasionally offers users a 'locked' message which seems to mean 'wait your turn later'.

    Should have also pointed out something in the nature of a 'tip': one can get phase issues easily when duplicating lines using the same samples at the same time, so mixing sample packages avoids that problem which had been very common in my efforts.

    Just got about 28 seconds of a passage I think has a LOT of promise. Very moody and moving.
