Calling all tech-heads - this is one for you.
A few months ago, I lobbed a bit of incidental orchestral music the way of this forum from a dramatisation of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey, and several people made some very good suggestions which I have just got round to implementing. HOWEVER, there's one problem which I can't resolve.
Raymond pointed out (accurately) that the high violins at ca. 30"-46" (and repeated later on) sounded distorted in the original version. That's OK, I thought, I'll remedy that. I moved the pan, changed the note-lengths, eventually changed the sounds as well (instead of Gagli 1 + 2 I chose Strad 1 + 2, neither of them conflicting with the other violin sound), altered the reverb ... but it STILL sounds distorted. Have I done something with the phase ? I don't even understand what that means, but the sound is horrible enough to justify it. I haven't got a clue what to do about it.
The piece is called "Sad" and is up on the index page of my redesigned site (thanks to T Monaghan !) at www.vivmarsh.co.uk . All suggestions extremely welcome.
