Topic: Suite Melody (Variations) GPO

  1. #1

    Arrow Suite Melody (Variations) GPO

    Well... I've been a little busy with my nose to the grindstone you could say. I've been working on a small piece trying to familarize myself with the GPO tools, and getting a better handle on them.

    This is a very simple melodic piece using all GPO. I wanted to use "variations" of different instruments playing the melody without it sounding too repetative. I wanted to try something different so, I used "Reaper" to lay out my midi tracks on the virtual keyboard instead of using FL. For the final mixdown, I used "Reaper"(s) digital effects like the Reaverb, ReaEq and for spacial seperation, I completed the mixdown using Sonic Foundary Acid Pro. There are a few minor adjustments that need to be made I am sure but, I think the final result sounds pretty good.

    The song is called "Suite Melody (Variations)"

    Hope you like it.

    which song?

    There is the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Therefore there must be a God. You either get this one or you don't - Kreeft & Tacelli
    The will to achieve is not sufficient. Some things should not be achieved. - Rimsky-Korsakov
    Musicians are just these guys that want to make music. Okay, they want to have a wonderful lifestyle, but the majority just want to make really great music. - Jon Anderson

    Hi, Jaker

    What a happy composition! It's full of light and fun and I really enjoyed hearing it.

    Your GPO work is sounding very good, certainly doing your music justice.

    Yaaah you!

    Chris, Suspenlute--it's the third song from the bottom. You'll see the title Shaver listed, "Suite Melody (Variations)."

    Great melodies and harmonies, I love it!

    Something you could try for those string staccato notes is use the D2 keyswitch (D1 for cellos, D0 for double bass) with VAR 1 and VAR 2 turned up just a bit to reduce any machine gun effect.

    I love your use of harp! And woodwinds too for that matter! Excellent writing, I'm always a fan of "simple melodic pieces"! This is wonderfully delightful and energetic!

    I'll be looking forward to more of your work!

    While listening to to the composition I was reminded of the absolute joy and pleasure it is to be a part of this forum. Truly delightful piece.

    Thanks for the nice compliments everyone. I'm still learning the "in's and out's" of GPO and composing. Glad those of you who gave it a listen, enjoyed it

    I enjoyed it too. The EQ was too fizzy for my tastes. But it's certainly more musically advanced than my own attempt #1!

    Jaker, nice work on this! Strong writing and orchestration;
    and overall, a fine job on the "sound and feel" and rendering.

    The one suggestion I might make is take the interpretation
    of this with a little more leisure and sweep and flow. There's
    some fine work with line and melody in this, and to me, it
    would benefit by a less rushed presentation.

    My best,
