    A nice rendition and interpretation and arrangement of a classic. I must admit I like the flute section the best in this piece. I would of liked to hear a little more vibrato in the instruments though. JMHO

    Well done

    Thanks for listening, Ron.
    I think on this particular Kontakt, the flute is the absolute best wind instrument. I turned it back just a bit because it was dropping pitch & a bit too loud.

    Lovely arrangement of this Gary, especially when it
    rolls to the strings... very well done.

    I think I might have another look at the overall dynamics
    scheme on this, though; when you pull in the winds,
    particularly, there are a number of places where they
    seem rather high against the general dynamic plane.

    My best,

    Thanks for listening, David.
    I noticed the woodwind level. I still couldn't get the clarinet sound I like, and the bassoon was too loud also.
    The levels on the mixer seemed OK.
    A process in work........

    Nicely done. I like this music.

    The flute seems to always sound good with electronics. It was the best sound on my Roland Sound Canvas.

    Thanks for listening Phil.
    I remember when I was in college that they said a computer large enough to hold all of the sounds of instruments would have to be larger than a building.
    It's beyond my understanding why some instruments are so much better than others. Probably has to do with the individual complexity of overtones.
    I had a Conn organ with 1 1/2 octaves that I have always used as a measurement of how bad sound can be.

    Serious question: does everything sound out of tune or is it just me? Is the varation knob for attacks turned up too far? I can understand wanting variation to avoid machine gun effects and to sound more realistic, but it just sounds mostly out of tune to my ear - very badly in some places. Kind of ruins the experience for me, quite honestly...
