    I like oboe (it was my first instrument, for 3 years).

    Nice use, and nice articulation.

    The technical comment I can add is:
    - I would like Harps. a little softer
    - Some staccato is in the real Oboe a little shorter (less continuous, more pause between sounds)
    - It's so nice that I feel the absence of some noise typical of close recorded Solos (key noise, breath and mouth noise), but GPO sound need to be clean to mix up in ensambles. Maybe gary can think about some additional noise sample to mix for hyper-realistic rendering (e.g. it's usual for guitar, bass or sax libraries to include noises).

    regards

    FV

    There are no harps in the composition, only oboe and harpsichord.

    Thanks for listening.

    Forgive me. I now see that you have abbreviated "harpsichord". I mistakenly thought that you meant "harps". My bad.

    I'm not an oboe connoissuer. I often get the sound of an oboe mixed up with an English Horn. So I have no idea if this is realistic or not, but it sounds fantastic!

    You continue to amaze me, Larry. I've had to create a Larry folder to house your works because there are so many and they are so VARIED! Lovely!
