Some great stuff here Ryan. Call me un-heroic if you like, but I actually preferred the Love-Interest music @ 2.39.Some deft orchestration here with the w/wind and strings and some nice modulations.
It sounds like you are really getting to grips with GPO.
I look forward to your 3rd effort.
Bye the way what is a Triblo?
Hi Fabio, thanks for the tip. Yeah, the strings could use more expression. I put a lot of time into writing the music, but I rush it when it comes to sequencing because I'm so anxious to hear what it actually sounds like! Next time I'm gonna pay more attention and actually use some cc1
This is great fun! I think your orchestration techniques are quite advanced for a newbie. Are you sure you haven't been working with GPO for years? Seriously, I really enjoyed your handling of the various themes presented. I think the piece flows well and evokes the response from the listener that you are looking for in this kind of piece. Good work! I am enjoying your submissions and look forward to hearing more.
Superb. Great orchestration and a very good performance. The reverb was also good - what did you use?
The repeated notes are always problematic, while that's mainly for Uncle Tom to address in GPOA, a little more velocity variation does help. Another trick is to split the repeated notes among different tracks with different instances and use a combo of mistuning/transpose (to in effect playback from a different sample) or to reprogram in K2 (like the recent thread (Gold) about the solution to the machine gun effect) but who has time for that.
Also, for slow, melodic passages for strings - put a little cc#1 hill on the notes and shift the peak toward (away from) the next note if it goes up (down) in pitch. The result will be smoother note transitions.
But really, I thought the performance was excellent.
