    Question Before My Gofriller Had a Heart Attack

    hello, i don't like posting things when they are this early into the piece, but my Gofriller keeps making my Logic Express shut down, so who know how long it will be before i get it fixed. anyway, i just discovered that Kontakt 2 player has reverb settings - this is what i used instead of my Logic Express reverbs. i actually think they sound great (very subtle).

    *** side note - why does the Kontakt Player 2 have different reverd settings - they don't do anything? ***

    i'm posting this now to get some feedback on mixing, i figure thats all i'll be able to work on until it gets fixed. i put the strings very close to the center to give it a more powerful sound, but i'm willing to take suggestions.

    its meant to play loud

    Sounds good to me although I am not an orchestral mixer. I really liked the playing on this. Well done! Although in a few places I found it a bit shrill for my ears with the very top register of the Strad along with the bells.

    You are really getting the hang of the new Gofr and Strad!

    And I am keeping in mind that this is just the start of this piece as well.

    Keith -

    That's dirty pool! I need to hear the rest! Can I send a Heart Specialist to fix the Gofriller?

    I don't "ooh" and "aah" about many things, but this gets a few! I like the motif a lot!

    Played it through several times, cranking my monitors up as high as 85% (no neighbors right on top of me). The bells sound like upper harmonics of the Strad at the lower volumes, and like the Strad's alter ego at higher volumes. If this is what you intended, it works!

    No suggestions on mixing for my tastes. Just a repeat of my first line.

    Thanks for this.

    Very enjoyable listen. And it sounds very good to me.

    When I listened to such music, I again feel that the possibility of music is infinite.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Thrilling piece of work, Keith! Bravo!
    I, too, love the way the bells "sit in" with the violin.

    thanks for listening. your peace movement for the middle east is what convinced me to buy these two instruments. i still think that was the best post i've heard on this site so far. i just listened to the piece you recently posted and i thought that was really good also, i'll make sure to comment on it in the next day or two.

    i see what you mean about the shrilly sounds at times. i meant for it to sound like that a little, but i should probably tone it down a tad to make it non-painful on the ears.

    you are toooo kind with your words, although i do appreciate them. if you know any gofriller heart specialists please send them right away. i'm bummed because i kind of had big plans for this piece. i wasn't really going to add different parts as much as i was going to repeat them with variations that kept getting bigger and bigger (kinda like the music from requiem for a dream that they used on that lort II trailer). i didn't intend of the glass armonica to imitate the harmonics, although i see what you mean. i just thought they sounded very evil because of the juxtapostion they created with the low register of the cello and the shrill of the violin - which is sort of what i was going for

    hopefully i'll be able to get this thing working again. i posted a thread in the gof and strad support section of the forum and got some feedback that i'm going to try as soon as i get a chance.

    thank you for taking the time to listen, although i don't think it quite deserves a bravo (maybe once its finished).

    about the bells, i had them walk down a chromatic scale there but skipped a couple intervals (like the major 3rd), so they didn't totally mimic the violin.

    i appreciate you listening, and i hope that you have better luck with the gofriller than i am at the moment. its such an incredible sounding instrument - just like having a professional cellist on call whenever and wherever you want him (unfortunately mine is on strike at the moment).

    thank you for your kind words, especially from an accomplished musician such as yourself. i too hope i can get these annoying details worked out so i can get back to just writing. i've been in a very "evil" sounding mood lately, and i just started going with this piece. then i just hit a bumpy technical road and became incredibly frustrated, but i'm confident that i'll be able to fix this soon enough - then back to what i love best... WRITING.

    Keith,

    You're off to a great start! Excellent intonation and well played. Maybe you're just too good for the Gofriller and it's just intimidated and refuses to cooperate.

    Seriously, we'll do everything we can to sort this out and get you up and running.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Re: Before My Gofriller Had a Heart Attack

    The first few notes set me on the wrong track. I thought of another variation of the Habanera from Carmen, Bizet. Let me judge this:

    originality: 8 plus (from a scale of 10, where 10 is the best),
    sound: 7
    use of Gofriller: 9
    choir: 5
    Strad: 8 plus
    composition: 8
    rendering: 7 +

    Cholesterol level: too high
    Danger of attack: already happened
    Reanimation: possible
    Recuperation time: just about 3 weeks, depending on the ER-staff.
