It's been a while since I actually FINISHED writing a piece. Well, this composition is finished! YEA!
It doesn't have a name, yet. So it's unofficially known is "No Name Composition #1". LOL! It's titled this way because I am SURE there will be more compositions where a title-name just does not come to mind.
Almost all of the "instruments" are using either GPO or JABB sound libraries. The only instruments outside of these two libraries are the electric bass and snare sounds. These sounds come from Wizoo sounds using the Halion 3 plug-in.
This composition was also sequenced using Muse Research's Receptor. It's a new addition to my happy little studio. I loaded the GPO into the Receptor. I must say that everything worked fine! There's a little learning curve in getting the Receptor to work with Steinberg's SX 3 (which is my sequencing program). Once everything was configured correctly, all went well. It greatly freed up CPU and memory usage on my computer. I'm looking to house the JABB sound library within the Receptor once it is available for this device.
This particular composition is a jazz-waltz. It's a "pencil to paper" piece, so it took me a long time to complete. I must say that I appreciate writing down the music as I compose. Although it is a slow process for me, it helps me see and hear different ways of voicing chords and developing the piece.
I just wish I had more days in the week to do more of this. . . .
Although this piece is roughly mixed, I still have yet to call it completed from a mix-down point of view. I need some time away from this piece before I complete the mix-down. If you hear anything that could help with the mix-down process, please feel free to add your thoughtful comments.
