Okay, so not only is my first piece with GPO, but it's the first thing I've ever done using MIDI of any kind.
I bought a digital home studio setup a few months ago, and used this project to learn how to use what I bought. What a learning experience! When I started this, I knew next to nothing about MIDI (I have a little experience with digital audio) and had never heard of "VST". I had to learn Cubase LE, Groove Agent, and of course, GPO. Oh yeah, and I had never done any traditional orchestration (only jazz arranaging). The first 2 months were reading, trial, and lots of error. The third month I actually started making music!
so here is the first of many....
This is a link to a website dedicated to my Digital Home Studio work. There's only one thing there right now. It is an arrangement of Gershwin's "Summertime". I would appreciate feedback, especially on how to get the lead instruments to "sing" a little more, or better mixing/balance.
Thanks in advance everyone.
