2 flutes, 2 clarinets, 2 oboes, 1 bassooon, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, 1 tuba, 1 contrabasstuba, strings, perucssion, glass harmonica, piano, and the GPO organ which I've turned into a calliope by using the prinzipal and flute stops.
also some sfx and some post-processing with ambience and glaceverb reverbs and some cakewalk fx. I took advantage of glaceverb's vectorize harmony function along with some panning to seriously morph the sound effects
created in overture se, ported to sonar and edited, recorded in goldwave because the sound card i currently have isn't letting sonar record or bounce midi/VSTs.
We open onto the strangely deserted carnival at twilight. We voyage through the stalls where we discover things are not quite as safe nor as deserted as we thought. We run for cover in, of course, the funhouse and become aware of another creepy presence there. We escape the funhouse only to find ourselves back in the middle of the carnival. Running for the exit, we become lost in the stalls as darkness sets in and that horrible presence sneaks behind us. We hide in a tent as it walks past and the last ray of sunlight disappears on the horizon. We will wait out the night in fear...
--!!--I loved this, Reegs. Such fun to hear the excellent GPO library twisted and warped into something so eerie. I appreciate "straight" orchestral recordings done with GPO, but also when there are adventuresome things done with audio recording techniques like you've done here.
