    GPO4/ARIA: "Turn of the Rotator"

    Here's a short slow melancholy piece of music featuring GPO4 (inc the SAM brass patches) and the Garritan Stradivari (on KP2 player). As an experiment I used the Aria EQ on almost all instruments using the 'controversial' eq slotting method (see other threads for full debate).

    L0W,

    First, very beautiful writing.
    Your sound mastering technique works quite well. And the EQ sounds very professional.

    Great work.

    Very pretty. Not sure how the title relates, though...

    Beautiful work, L0W - Easy to see that GPO4 is already inspiring you.

    "Turn of the Rotator"--is that a reference to turning those EQ knobs you refer to as "controversial?" --I thought I'd been keeping up on posts about GPO4--but not sure what "other threads" you're talking about where using Aria's EQ is debated - ?

    Please allow me two tech observations:

    --I found some overlapping low frequencies to be competing at times, making for some slightly ambiguous, mushy moments. Does that make sense?

    --It sounded like the vibrato on The Strad was almost always engaged, rather than coming in after a note is established, which is more like how a violinist plays his instrument.

    The somber, almost funereal mood of the piece synchronized with my rather serious mood today--I really enjoyed listening.

    I'll leave tech talk to others, L0W.

    Just plain beautiful work... gorgeous writing
    without pretense, no wasted notes; with
    thematic material that cannot but leave one
    moved.

    With applause -- but quietly, not to break
    the mood,

    I think I would echo a bit of both Randy and David on this, a sentimental and restful composition.
    Keep it up!

    Lovely writing, L0W! I thoroughly enjoyed listening... though in a melancholy way.
    Maybe I should have come up with a more original username.

    I was thunder struck with the opening statement. I ended up holding my breath the whole way through. I can tell you can really hear the universe singing to you. It is as beautiful as the most beautiful spiral galaxy. This is realy music, not contrived and guessed at. It is music from the heart of a passionate soul. I am moved and honored by it. The piano painter and the rest was the cosmic scene painted with sound. Loved it.

    Thanks a lot Michael for taking time to listen and comment. I’m delighted at how easy using Aria EQ is and how well it fits into workflow compared to the previous options available via KP2.

    Thanks Randy. I was referring to the Harbal thread (surely not already forgotten?) Part of it got side-tracked into discussing eq slotting. Ironically EQ slotting is supposed to eliminate those pesky overlapping frequencies! Back to the DAWing board…….

    Thanks for taking the trouble to listen and feedback Cellist – what instrument DO you play?

    Don’t you just love it when the review is actually better written than the piece! Thanks Samantha for those words – they make me want to write a song worthy of them!
