    New Strad Demo - Sailor's Hornpipe

    Here is a new demo with the Stradivari Solo Violin. http://www.garritan.com/Strad/Hornpipe.mp3 This old sailor's song is believed to have been written in the 1700's. The melody became associated with the nautical hornpipe dance and it entered popular repertoire and became fairly widely known (and later became the theme song for the cartoon character, Popeye the Sailorman). Thanks Robert Davis for realizing this timeless classic. Enjoy! Gary Garritan

    I like what I heard, but the violin sounds like it needs to be mixed a little higher for my taste.

    Very well done, excellent sound!

    I also would like the violin just a little bit more loud in the mix.

    Very very nice, but I wish whoever was programming these demos would get past the portamento fetish It's rather abundant in every one. Of course, it's an impressive feature to show off though.

    Very cool but this as with some of the other fast tempo violin demos I feel it is too perfect. What would be great to hear is some bow noise or even just nearly hitting the pitch would make it sound even more realistic.
    Great nonetheless!
