    Four Short Pieces For Flute, Clarinet & Bassoon

    Where has the good clarinet solo sound gone? As I listen to this clarinet I get a strong urge to break his/her reed....

    Hey gary, I really like the instrument combination. Is this a traditional grouping of instruments. They seem to blend very well. The melodies and harmonies are very nice. The third piece is flirtsy kinda of thing.

    Hello, Gary

    These pieces are wonderful! Such a large amount of greatly varied mood and expression packed into such a short time. Constantly delightful to listen to.

    Now, I'd like to understand what the issues are that you're having with using reverb--I remember your last music post was completely devoid of reverb also. It's robbing so much from the naturalism of your recordings. These woodwind pieces, with no reverb, don't sound like instruments could possibly sound in The Real World--and so it's a major distraction. Adding some reverb is a mandatory final touch to making GPO or any soft synth library sound as intended.

    Let us know how we can help you get some natural ambience on your recordings--Your music will be very grateful to you.

    EDIT--I meant to ask--I didn't understand your comment about the Clarinet--??

    Thanks Jay,
    I think that this combo offers †he greatest deal of tone color variety.
    Of course the oboe could sub for flute or clarinet, but the goal for this was to work with a small group.

    Hi Randy,
    I am working with a MAC INTEL: finale 07: Kontackt2 with mixer.
    Where do I find the reverb?

    Hi, Gary--I'm very glad to see you've already gotten expert advice from Tom. The tutorial which he wrote and linked to in response to you is absolutely clear.

    I hope you understand why I came on so strongly about the lack of reverb in your piece. I suddenly realized there must be some kind of technical problem or lack of info involved, since the piece you posted before this was also completely dry and thus unfinished sounding.

    I like these Four Short Pieces so much and want to have you hear them with some proper ambience--I know you will say "AAaah, now This is much better!"

    Just keep in mind that the trickiest part is deciding how Much to turn the reverb up on each track. As Tom said, that's totally up to your own taste. I would highly recommend you start with modest amounts, and keep checking your results--comparing the sound you get with that of a professionally recorded CD you admire.

    Best of luck with it all!
    Randy B.

    Thanks for †he info link Tom, I will ge† †o it la†er today(SUN).
    Randy, I fully recognize the problem and don't mind comments.
    In the last 6 months with all the advances, i† has been much tougher to
    achieve a good performance.....

    An interesting set of short studies, Gary... rather a
    suite in miniature. As I just said in a post elsewhere,
    I rather enjoy these smaller works that get to the
    point, say what they're going to say.

    With Randy, I must concur on the reverb, though.
    These would benefit so much by better attention to
    the sound treatment!

    My best,
