Sample playback for musicals
Hey everyone (anyone) this is my first time here, but I thought I might get someone elese's take on this. I want to use sampled sound to record the music for my universities musical. The music department has many performances throught the year and the theatre department has trouble coordinating their schedule with the music department schedule. My thought, and I am the musical director for the theatre department, would be to record the music from the musical, using software samplers, and then dump the files into Finale and playback live during the musical performance. Does anyone know of anyone doing this sort of thing? I'm not even sure if the companies renting the musicals would allow this, but I think that this is not a new idea.
I'm seriously concidering using VSL, as the music department would pick this stuff apart one event at a time, given the opportunity. Any thoughts?
