    Orchestral (sort of) demo

    I was wondering if some folks could offer constructive criticism about my first attempt at a demo.
    I know enough about music to get in trouble, but am just a beginner at mixing. The concept here was a theme with very wide variations. Just trying to do my best with limited knowledge and samples. (Sorry...the address is correct, but I can\'t get the link to work. You have to block and copy.)Thanks, Peter.

    **Sorry, Geocities temporarily shut this off because they have a file transfer limit. I\'ll have to find someplace else to post it.**

    Peter,

    I listened to your demo (I guess I just got lucky with Geocities ), and I think that you have succeeded in conveying a lot of musical styles in such a short space.

    I like very much the way each musical style moves into the next keeping the same theme.

    A question: What loops, if any, do you use for the percussive lines?

    And just a suggestion: Maybe try to change a little bit the reverb, to make more justice to your demo. In some parts the sound spacing or the reverb settings seem a little bit off, but that might just be me.

    Very nice, and for a first demo it\'s really impressive! You must have spent a lot of time working on it, and it shows

    Take care

    (I think Geocities limits me to 1 or 2 downloads an hour.)

    The percussion was from Orchestral Flavours (Creative Essentials) and from a Kurzweil PC88MX soundbank.

    The reverb seems off in what way? Too much?

    Thanks for your help.

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Peter,

    I\'ll listen to it more careful and see if I can analize the source of my subjective feeling about the reverb-spacing.

    Also, I\'m sure that most other people could offer better help to you than I can (I am a newbie with little talent , and I don\'t make a living with GigaStudio)
    So, if you want me to, I can post your demo in my webspace for 1 or 2 weeks (I get this free webspace with my internet service provider). Let me know if you want me to do that, it\'s no problem at all.

    Take Care
