Hey gary. A very nice arrangement. I just got CMB, and I am looking forward to using it. I think the quiet moments were just a little to quiet. I could hardly hear them, but the piece was enjoyable.
I want to join the others in congratulating you on a really well done arrangement.
I know you want a good strong dynamic range in your recording, and I know how difficult it is to achieve that. When we have too large a range, listeners end up having to turn their volume controls up and down throughout a piece--and of course that's not what we want.
This one is a "knob twiddler"--with the lows disappearing when the playback volume has been set at a comfortable level. Then, having turned the knob up so the soft passages work, it's suddenly far too loud for the next bit - and so on.
In other words, I also need to join the others in suggesting that the contrasts are just too disparate.
Reiterating - it's certainly an admirable arrangement.
