Gorgeous, Ray--I love it too, what you've done with the Strad and the entire arrangement. Wonderful.
Lovely, sensitive, arrangement . And the Strad, for 10 minutes experience with it.. bravo! (Actually, if you listen carefully, it is already sounding better towards the end of the piece than it did at the beginning. I wonder what the next take would have sounded like! )

Thanks for listening in Randy,Originally Posted by rbowser-
I've been waiting for weeks on my Strad, the retailer was out of stock but their price was so good I had to wait. It's so good it's just muddied the water for what I do next. So many toys in the one room . Gorgeous indeed!
Thanks indeed for your comments on this piece.Originally Posted by vic_france
I arranged and recorded it back in January using just GPO violin for the solo, thinking at the time what it might sound like with the strad. I converted cc1 to cc11 then dropped the velocity in all notes, applied vibrato real time during playback and as you say by the time I edited through lengthening some notes and dropping the velocity in others real low for portamento. With more time I'll also ride the fader on the track to recreate the voilinists swaying movement while playing expressively.
... out of the box in ten minutes.....??????
What if you have some ten minutes more.... it adds up and this is already nice to listen to. Hey, folks can we have a benefit concert for gathering a bunch of "ten minutes" for this guy!!! He is making good music.
I started the conversion 10 minutes out of the box but it took me an hour for my first remix. I've tweaked the strad a little more this eveningOriginally Posted by Raymond62
Wow! I had no interest in the product because I thought it would have a brutal larning curve, even though the demos I heard were nice. It might take me more than ten minutes, but I think I can get a few free hours at my friends studio.

I'm sorry for missing this and not commenting sooner.
The Strad really is easy to get started on.
The use of the mod wheel for vibrato and varying velocity for different samples including overlapping to a lower velocity note creating portamento, etc etc. It's just great. I hope you've listened to my other Strad piece which followed a few days playing with it. STRAD 2
Maybe you've already bought it
