    Exclamation I Can't Get Started

    An old standard which expresses where I've been for two months.
    This is combo type music for dancin'

    Hi, Gary

    Such a pretty tune, and a very pretty rendition of it you've posted for us here.

    Allow me a few technical observations--maybe they'll be of help:

    --The Sax has had no vibrato worked into its performance. It sounds unnatural to me for notes of any length to not have some varying degree of modulation.

    --More expressive use of cc1 could also be used, to have the Sax breathe more with the melody.

    --While I really prefer instruments to be close to me and not drenched in reverb, this Sax is unnaturally dry and So close to me--closer than an analog real-world Sax could be if it was an inch from my face. It has to have some room ambience added to make it sound believable.

    --Because of the intimacy of this recording, it would be great to make use of some of the breath sounds and key clicks which are in JABB. This is the kind of project those extra touches were designed for.

    If any of that seems reasonable to you, great. Meanwhile, I enjoyed the tune!

    Gosh, Gary, here I was about to commiserate about
    having the very same problem -- and I find out it's
    the song title... lol.

    And an old favorite, of course.

    Gary, I think I'd have a look at the panning on this.
    Try a listen on headphones.

    My best,

    the sax sounds a little fake at times, but more importantly the piece is great. a smooth melody and nice piano. very minimal, but not minimal in quality. i really liked it. it would great to hear with a real sax player and light rhythm section. if you're in virginia beach anytime soon i'll play some bass or guitar over it for you

    p.s. don't know why, but i think some vibes would sound incredible in there.

    Re: I Can't Get Started

    Hi Randy,
    This was my first effort with K-2 and JABB. I was just happy to finally get sound from an empty keyboard all tese past weeks.
    Are the effec†s you write about in the JABB Manual? I'm working on my tenor playing everyday for the past months as I get ready for the Jazz Camp in Vermopnt this Summer. It's the most playing I've done on tenor since I last played in 1964.
    I have two others I will add as my turn comes upnext week. So far all
    my results are wi†hin †he Finale '07 by using cresc, decres, e†c.

    Gunther, that's really good, but people need to read the discussion room posts for that.
    Thanks

    Re: I Can't Get Started

    Hi kei†h,
    I was stationed in Norfolk for 29 months in 1959-1961 with a Navy Band.
    It was always a big deal to go to Virgina Beach and the NEAR BEER.
    Do you happen to know Tom Hill? I think he has(had) a music store there.
    As mentioned, I have just started with the new K2

    Thanks David, but I have no idea about what "panning" is.

    Re: I Can't Get Started

    Gary, panning refers to the placement of the instruments in the stereo position. For example, in a full classical orchestra, the first violins are fairly well to the left while the violas are more central and the cellos to the right.

    Your software will have the facility for each channel to place each instrument, defaulting to centre and you can move them left or right so they appear to come out of different positions. The idea is to simulate the broad sound stage of a real performance.

    Later, you can learn to add different levels of reverb and other ambient features to get the depth and positioning in terms of relative distances from the audience position.

    I was unable for some reason to play your piece. My loss.
