Sounds really good!
Where is the background noise from? Bela D's scoring noise, is it from GOS?
Looking forward to listening more demos...
Excellent use of the solo cello against the harp accomp. Very expressive and enjoyable to listen to.
I haven't heard this piece in a long time, what a great way to hear it again! Great rendering, and what a great cello sound! Awesome work with this Joaz. This sounds real, especially with the scoring noise.
Great job! I am humbled by your abilities in bringing out such expression with this library!!
Way to go!
Thanks for sharing this.
So, who's playing the cello? It's certainly not a sampled sound! Just beautiful. The last time I heard this was at a wedding I played last year. This sounds truly, like a real cello! AMAZING!
I don't want to sound dumb, but I will - what is a Gofriller Cello?
Excellent job on this, my friend. Highly
convincing nuancing and finesse -- and
an expressive, clear rendering.
Makes my fingers itch to take up the
cello again... lol.
All my best,
Thanks Folks for the kind words.
It was jerry's woodwind piece with the obbligato chair scuffling, that inspired me to include scoring noise (courtesy of Bela D's generous free download).
This version is modelled on a version done by Jacqueline du Pre, it amazed me how silent her entries were, and how often her final notes trailed away to nothing.
On an interesting rendering note.....this was all achieved by midi. No audio rendering, followed by fader automation was used.(The DPDan technique).
I used main volume cc controllers to create some of the quieter note entries/fades instead.
Anyone who uses the Garritan Strad, will be able to leap right in and use this Library immediately. In my opinion the programming of this Library is even better than the Strad ( and that is saying something).
My hearty congratulations to Giorgio, Stefano, and Gary, for another ground breaking Library.
A very convincing, beautiful rendition of this piece. The Gofriller has a wonderful sound and your scoring makes it "come alive." Amazing production considering this was recorded in the MIDI state without rendering to audio.

Hey guys.......I'd love to say 'fantastic' but I'm afraid I can't.
I'm very disappointed by the tone and the lack of legato which gives the piece a somewhat jerky and stilted effect. Is it too quantised? It also has the slightly nasal, harmonica like, sound which I thought the, otherwise, excellent violin had at one point.
I think the piece could benefit from a lot more midi programming. If it was played in realtime then maybe it's a bit more acceptable. I reckon the soundfont cello in my old Sonido Media's orchestra would give this a run for it's money. Let's hope future demos are better.
Sorry, I may be wrong......but at least it's an honest opinion.....I'm not into the Emporer's new clothes business I'm afraid.
