GPO Steinway, working in Overture. Been working on this one on and off for a while. In my view it turned out quite good in the end. Been trying out some different attack vs dynamics to get the sound i wanted.
For the most part this sounds very believable, more like a human performance - you have managed to get the articulation sounding unmechanical, a difficult thing to achieve especially with quick tempo piano music, I find. Perhaps the very fast downward rush of octaves at the end sounds a bit dry, I would have preferred a little more resonance here with the pedal, perhaps not quite so fast. But that's just my opinion! I look forward to hearing more - the very first etude op. 10 in C would be interesting!
The octaves at the end...ahh... i tried several different approaches on thoose. It's hard to get big chords sounding good i've found, especially played fast. Maybe i could slow them down more as you suggest.
I've done some work on Opus10 no1 already (along with a few others: 10/8,10/9 and 25/11(winterwind).) I'll post them when/if i feel they're ready.
I'm also working on my own composition, but we'll see if that gets posted. I must hook up my digital Piano to the PC in that case, playing it myself, rendering the notes in Overture doesn't sound as good at all.
