    PMPM GPO String Quartet

    Dvorak's String Quartet No.12 in F 'American', Op.96 3rd Movement
    version2 closer pan & less dry

    This is a demo of a String Quartet Multi I'm working on using GPO solo strings with altered / added programming, new instrument IR's and the Phrase Modeled Performance Multi.

    Feedback appreciated

    Mike,
    I'm not up on all the technical aspects that you stated but this rendering sounds very good to me. The only two things that I noticed, in my opinion, was the panning; might be a bit wide, and the sound; a bit dry. You may be going for the more intimate sound but I think it needs a little bit more "breathing room".

    Overall, not being able to do this myself, I think it sounds very realistic!
    Much enjoyed!

    I do agree with Michael in the pan of this; It is very wide.

    A little more space would also help.

    Everything else sounds very realistic

    Well done

    Okay, I have to find myself in disagreement with both
    Ron and Michael on the panning... lol! (Sorry, my friends.)

    I'm generally the first to call someone on a mix that's
    too wide, but listening on headphones, then later on the
    studio monitors -- this sounds about perfect to me, very
    natural.

    Go figure.

    Fine work on this Mike -- quite a real feel to it!

    My best,

    Thanks Michael & Ron. I took your suggestions and reposted with tighter pan and a little bit wetter.

    I should mention that I'm trying to demo what can be achieved with these instruments more or less "out of the box" with the help of scripting and a little programming. So to that end this is a fairly straight rendering of a midi file from the classical music archives with global alterations around note lenghts and velocity compression. The re-programming adds the EQ/Freq cc's similiar to the JABB library, Instrument IR's at the instrument level, cc controlled saturation and modification to the ADSR envelope. All midi ccs, bowing keyswitches and legato / sustain are automated by script as are humanization characteristics such as note timings and phrasing. aside from the instrument IR's only effects provided by the K2 Player were used.

    Thanks David, but I think you listened to the reposted version. Changed it on my site around 10:30 then answered Michael & Ron then edited the post. I did have it panned pretty wide, if the room was 30' wide they would have been sitting about 6' apart.

    Ah! Well, that explains much!

    I had the span on this aurally at about 10 & 2 o'clock, and
    it sounded quite comfortable, like I was sitting not too far
    off in a smallish recital hall.

    My apoogies to Ron and Michael for misapprehending my
    misapprehension... rofl!

    I completely missed your comment about the remix, Mike,
    sorry.

    My best,
