Topic: Elegy

    Elegy

    It is not a new one, but a new rendering. I let DPDAN hear this in the Thread "My thoughts about Altiverb http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...&postcount=120 and he had some comments (and was very, very true about them, but those comments set me way back.. read them and you will know).

    Though I wanted things a bit more easy to accomplish, it didn't work that way, so I went for the difficult solution. For further explanation see my comments: http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...&postcount=135

    Now confident enough, I present you a rather sad piece (much appropriate for this very moment).For the purpose of "comparison" I uploaded this under a different name/link, so you now have both "performances" at hand

    ELEGY

    In fact it a String-Quintet, but not for solo strings. All voices play their individual part in it.

    A nice sunday folks,

    Raymond

    Wow! A bleak landscape of existential yet utterly human despair, loved the guidance and truth coming from the Basses!
    Thank you for stepping up with this piece!!

    Best regards,

    Raymond:

    A fine piece and so characteristic of and "Elegy" titling.

    I have to agree with sd cisco that the basses are a really
    great-sounding section, but on the whole, the piece goes
    a long way toward a "live" presentation. With all your
    attention to detail and hard work, you have made this a
    beautiful and worthwhile listen.

    Great job, Raymond

    Hi Raymond,
    this is much smoother, and you should be happy very with it!

    May I make one more recommendation?
    When you think you have finished a mix, listen to it considerably
    louder than you would normally listen. You may find some things
    are too excessive, then you can go back and make those changes.

    Nice work Raymond!!!

    Now, don't be afraid to use different Altiverb IR's

    and one more thing he he he

    when you start on a project., let's say the project is named Elegy,...
    I assume you save constantly, but after you have worked on it for
    a couple of hours, don't use "Save" again,........ use "Save As" and add .01
    to the end of the project name so it would look like this... Elegy.01.cwp

    After another few hours, do another "Save As" Elegy.02.cwp

    Continue to increase the number on the end. This way, you can always go back
    to the project at any point. Sometimes you may work on something and get
    aggravated and say to yourself,...

    Is this enough "saving" ?

    Re: Elegy

    Too many people loose everything because they don't save.
    I just wanted to offer the advice

    All this saving doesn't do any good unless it is all duplicated on another drive.

    Re: Elegy

    Dan, be sure, I make backups (on two diff. HD's).
    From the past as ICT engineer I know how important it is to make backups. Once I "saved" the whole company's administration just having made a backup just before the hardware crash.

    Maybe useful for others too. My system disk only contains the programs and some temp documents. Another disk has all the downloads, documents, bills, photos, etc. The third has only Scores, Sonar projects, Audio files, Music related other stuff as GPO Steinway, Pianoteq, and others (those dll files). The fourth has installed SONAR and Altiverb.

    Once per month I make a backup of the "download disk" or earlier, depends on the importance of the downloads. Once a week I do the Scores, etc. And the SONAR disk never, because I always can re-install SONAR and Altiverb.

    Why SONAR on a different disk. Once you start installing SONAR 8.5 Prod and you install a lot of the gadgets it is very disk consuming. Altiverb had to go somewhere, so I decided to put them on the same HD.

    Then I have two external USB HD's for backups, website building, etc.

    And now I backup myself, going to bed.
