Well, obviously I've been wanting to try something original and for the last two days i've had a break from regular work. So, I sat down at the keyboard with absolutely nothing Well, except knowing I wanted to play with making a realistic legato expressive string line. So, out came the opening theme of this piece and the rest followed!! With sounds like this music writes itself!! So, here's a mini-suite tentatively titled "The Lady Waits". It's 100% GOS with a special guest appearance from GIGAHarp. At some point I'd like to add woodwinds to the middle section but it works as is for now.
Thanks Dan!! yeah, I think the low end stuff- cellos and basses- blows me away even more than the violins do.
Theres some subtle stuff going on in that first part. It's two patches on seperate channels with slightly different note ons and wheel data. Plus theres tons of little slides (a couple of which may be a hair obvious) to throw intonations slightly out here and there. I thought the slides provided in GOS were too obvious at first- like disco slides!! BUT now that I'm playing with them I realize there are lots of cool subtle things you can do by mixing slide "froms" and slide "tos", making them short duration and mixing them under held notes. There's a lot of experimenting to be done yet!!
And how about the trememlos and harmonics!! Too cool!
what reverb are you using, it sounds really good here on my computer speakers?
Wow- three people have asked me about the reverb!!!
I'm monitoring the pc/tracking on a Roland VS 2480. That's its internal reverb- I haven't figured out GS3's mixing functions let alone Gigapulse yet. It's basically a small hall and a larger hall. Roland has excellent reverb, always has!! (I would like to push the harp back in the mix a bit by wetting it seperatly at some point; this was straight out of the pc).
