    "The Brass Seer"

    Y'all,

    Here is my "The Brass Seer", which I wrote using the Concert and Marching Band brass (trumpets, 'bones, "French" horns, baritones and tubas).

    I am now in the process of converting many of my other brass ensemble compositions to this sample library.

    Regards to all,

    Larry

    Hi Larry,

    It took me a moment on the title -- hilarious!

    The CMB has certainly done well by you! There's a definite British Brass Band tint to this within its clever twists and turns chordally and melodically. You're definitely getting great sounds out of the brass which highlight the cleverness of your writing.

    Well done, my friend!!

    Love it, Larry - It's one of your best recordings ever, and an excellent demo of CMB to boot - well, not that I want to BOot it. You certainly worked out the technical problems you posted about a few days ago. Congrats! Really nice music.

    Thank you, young thespian.

    I still have a lot to learn about that particular sample library but I'm tryin' hard.

    My best,

    Loved this piece, a really nice quirky marching band / sea side band stand element to it. Almost felt myself swaying along with it. Nice use of GPO although I personal think you could have increased the volume over all or given the rbighter instruments a bit of a boost as it sounded a little softened to my ears, but then that could have been just down to my speakers.

    All said and done a great piece, well done.

    This is not GPO. GPO is Garritan Personal Orchestra which is a totally different sample library.

    I don't know what you mean by "...could have increased the volume over all...". My volume is near maximum for most of the composition and is almost to the point of clipping the signal in some places.

    The "softened" sound, as you put it, is the effect that I intended.

    Thanks for listening.

    It sounds like you have mastered CMB. Well done and a nice piece too.

    I agree with Randy that you got have gotten a real good sound here. I'm thinking that you sort of wrote this around the instruments characteristics.

    Anyway, you made them shine.

    Thanks, Mr. Phil.

    This sample library adds another tool to our composition arsenal, so to speak.

    I appreciate your comments.

    Best regards,
