The strad is used here entirely in notation with mouse graphic edits, so may interest non keyboard playing brothers and sisters. The method sounds plodding, but in fact was quite a pleasure. The method worked better than I hoped and I recommend it. There is still a steep learning curve on mastering the expression controls, but Fabio's tutorial was a great help.http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page...?bandID=342382
Very nice use of the Strad - what a great tool it is. It did sound a little distant, though. For such an intimate ensemble - and piece, as well, I think it might benefit from adjusting the reverb/ambience to a smaller space. Just a suggestion, though, as the piece is really very lovely.
Thanks for the comments. Reverb used was Ambience Concert Hall 1, probably too high. The allusion to Debussy was nice, a master of lucid impressionism in which form always serves mood. Definitely a way to go.
