    I enjoyed this.

    What instuments are you using and where are they from? The Bass clarinet sounds like the one from JABB but I am not sure.

    Regardless, it has that nice festive feel to it.

    Well done.

    Thanks for listening Ron.
    All of the clarinets were GPO. (3 sop/2 bass clar.)
    As suggested, I only turned up Var. I & 2 slightly.
    Mac intel without ambience will never sound good.

    Hi, Gary - Really fun arrangements of these great segments of The Nutcracker. Using only Clarinets was a really nice idea.

    The attacks of notes throughout are consistently really soft so that notes are constantly swelling up, and it's too consistent. Are they all the same low velocity value perhaps? Notice what happens on the fast passages--the notes don't really get out because the notes don't have time to get beyond just the beginning of the soft swell.

    "...As suggested, I only turned up Var. I & 2 slightly..."

    This piece does sound well enough in tune, Gary, but remember what was explained on your last thread - It is NOT a matter of just "turning up Var 1 and 2 slightly" and leaving them there. Those are meant to be OFF, at zero for most of a piece. You only swoop them up in small amounts sparingly throughout to create the very slightly off-key sound of musicians not always hitting a note right on.

    This is a fun Nutcracker piece - I wish you would adjust the velocities so the instruments can be recognized more as Clarinets. It'd be worth the effort.
