    One more time Samuel Barber!

    Ok, Ok, I know what your thinking....\"oh, no! the Barber thing again\". But this time it may be a little more fun....

    Simply which one do you like best and why?

    Donnie,

    I like #2 best. The first one sounds kind of screechy. The second has a much smoother and more pleasant sound.

    In both the pieces, I\'m hearing some sort of wierd looping effect in the long sustained notes, almost like the way a warped record sounds. Regardless, the legato transitions between notes are much better on #2. On #1 I can hear the separation between notes very clearly and it sounds like some sort of excessive filtering is going on at different velocity levels. #2 sounds much smoother, although not perfect, and is the one I prefer.

    I like #2 much better also, but they both sound kinda weird. On #1 the lower frequencies are too pumped up (and the legato isn\'t there). Legato is nice on #2, but there\'s that pitch wobble, almost sounds like \'wow\' on an LP (except I don\'t think the rate is 33 1/3 wpm - wobbles per minute).

    #2 sounds more natural.

    Yeah, I prefer no.2 also.

    So Donnie, are you going to tell us what is what?

    2 sounds more natural to me as well.

    Okay Donnie, are you going to let this thread scroll off and hope we\'ll forget about it? I don\'t think so! Are you ready to tell us what we\'re listening to here?
