After some very interesting discussions about the timbre, the thickness, but mainly the vibrato (intensity and speed/rate) of the Gofriller Cello, compared to the real thing, I did the attached study:
THE SWANS PARADE
- I surfed the internet collecting all the "Swan" for solo Cello and Piano I found in half an hour of research.
- without any sound manipulation I copy-pasted the beginning of each one in a 44.1Khz 16bit file of Cubase.
- I mixed two versions of my rendition in the same way, in casual position inside the file
- I did an mp3 compression, flat, with iTunes.
Now You may listen to all the swans playing in sequence, and compare sound, balance, vibrato rate etc.
Two of this are me, one is Yo Yo Ma.
Let us have your comments please.
