Hi everyone *welcomes myself to the forum*
I have been using GPO since a while - Trying things out, having fun..
This is a popular rock-song called 'Tribute' from 'Tenacious D'.
They are famous with this song, right now. And this is my orchestrated sketch. Trying finding the right instruments/mood
What instruments would you suggest ? Or any tips highly welcomed:
Info: Original Instruments used: 1 accoustic guitar, 1 distortion guitar & 1 "clean" electric-guitar. Split up all parts for different orchestra-instruments , tried to somewhat "simulate" the catch and sound of the original music + added slow beat with percussion. Very soft, but thats what i want do
I'am happy with the instruments-selection now.
But the end is not that exactly that expression i want - especially the very fast part with incredible Harpsichord hits at the end (mozart would be amazed) it's cool, but brass is not doing what i want, there !
Descriptive Instruments Use: The "medium-high" parts of the original 'accoustic guitar' are mainly played by violin 1, violin 2 & cello (all short bows) + piano, xylophone & marimba, building the very base, variating between them and build a musical play.
In the last part, piano plays almost all heights together. That would be 5 hands needed ! I want it realistic as possible. So, i dont know if i should use a piano-duo there. Or what instruments would a listener expect and add to the base mood ?
The 'Distortion-guitar': Is played by a bassoon, trumpet (with overlay), harpsichord fade in + later French horn and less Bassoon playing.
The 'Electric-Guitar' is played by trombone, vibraphone and tuba fade-in (all brass use overlay)
Percussion's are: Bass-drum, Timpani, Snares, Cymbals (all solo).
Used a total of 10 GPO Instances for each Instruments-Group, 5 different Reverbs for them with different wet/dry & pre-delay settings and invidual Equalizing for the correct instruments-location.
SIR:32bit IR, "stereo to stereo". Location is l960small-church: a beautyfull location that i think, sounds "dark".
Question: What is that with the pre-delay ?
Should have percussion more or less than the strings as example ? Percussions are more in the back, but they go faster trough the air.
So whats should they get ?
I always use something like 15<->25ms: Strings-Woodwind-Brass-Percussion
There is one 'crack' in the render! Trough the reverb it almost sounds like a life-like record to me. Probably that will not happen again
Please help me make this piece a masterpiece. I need some musical-experience.
But not too much ! I'am sure every musical-teacher would say "This is so wrong, The interpretation is so wrong You cant !" - "yes mr. teacher, i'am learning !"
Thanks, that was alot. Good evening ladys and gentlemans
