    For the impatients...

    Hi g's
    To shorten your waiting for the update next week, here some leftovers from my test folder:
    Would make a nice ringtone for my cellphone....

    Some stress test for Garys harp:
    Only for people interested in modern composition with tonal centers...

    There was some serious stuff also:
    William Byrd, England ca 1540 - 1623
    Scope: Testing solo woodwinds (famous clicking problem: finaly disapeared...)
    This performance was made without expression in order to get the sound of "early music".

    Most of the time testing is a pretty boring task and sounds like this:
    Scope: Testing overlapping notes on solo woodwinds

    At the time you start to hate the sound of oboe, you have to do something:

    Scope: Testing the full string patches without controllers and adding just controlled solo violin and cello to give it a "color". This is the fastest sketch technique ever: You can play the full string orchestra in one pass and just add accents with solo instruments when needed. Notice the oboe in the repetition (second half): to give it more emotional touch, I added low volume piccolo with vibrato 1 octave on top... Thanks to Ennio Morricone (and sorry for the sloppy mockup) for his beautyfull soundtracks.

    Have a nice weekend
