    Live violin and Gofriller

    Hi,

    over in the samples discussion forum I learned that our forum member Sean C. Dockery has had problems with a live recording of one of his works. I tried an own interpretation of his "Reminiscing" with two live violins, Kirk Hunter viola and Garritan Gofriller.

    Since I promised several times to post some live violin playing and this is a nice piece to show off the Gofriller, I thought I should post it here also. A case of samples making music happen!

    Thank you Sean for your nice music (I did it by ear, so probably there is missing more than something).

    I am still learning how to mix and playing into that mic, so please be patient.

    Hi Hannes,

    I have listend to it in the other thread..., very coooool what you did!

    I have a tip about the recording: Put your headphone on and adjust the volume as loud that you can only hear the voise out of the headphone. Then experiment with different angles and ranges to your microphone, experiment this while you are playing... .

    Many years ago when I did my first recording with an acustic nylon-stringed guitar I found out, that different angles to the mic and different ranges to the mic only from 10cm let the recording sound very different... .

    Best,

    Gunther

    Now that is a great hint.

    Actually a violin is really loud, up to 105 dB but I can try nevertheless.

    Hannes,

    This is a very lovely work that you have presented here. I think that your recording of the live performance is done well along with the final mix. Thanks for sharing it here.

    This is a lovely mix of reality and illusion. I think as musicians and composers, that is what we are always trying to accomplish.

    Well done

    Gary, Ron,

    thank you both for listening and commenting. Yes, we try to get our results, no matter which means we must use. If this means scratching with a feather on pergament, so be it. If it means scratching with horse hair on cat's gut, so be it. If it means setting up a computer and learning to ride the controls, so be it.

    I have a question to my buddies here: I made a second mix that is more upfront. Do you think the strings sound is still likeable on your system?

    Best

    Lovely playing, Hannes. I much prefer #2; #1 sounds kind of muffled compared to #2. #2 brings out the violins overtones much better.

    Hello, Hannes

    This is a wonderful and rare treat, to hear something from you. It's been a long wait, but now with this, it's been worth waiting for.

    Your musicianship displayed in this brief but very lovely piece by Sean Dockery is very satisfing to listen to. All the instruments, both virtual and physical are played with a very effective sophistication, and the recorded blend of the two worlds works beautifully for me.

    Surely Sean must be happy with what you have done with this? It's sounds simply wonderful.

    Thank you.

    Randy B.
