    Through the Storm

    Time for another one. A bit on the darker side (as the title would suggest).

    The specs are:
    AkoustiK Piano - ("Grand Concert D" patch)
    RealGuitar 2 - ("Steel String Picked" patch)
    GPO -
    Strings:
    Vlns 1 KS, Vlns 2 KS, Violas KS, Cellos KS, Basses KS
    Brass/Woods:
    French Horn 1 Solo KS, English Horn 1 Solo, Flute Solo, Bassoon 1 Solo, Timpani KS, Cymbals (Crash, Large Gong 1, Tam Tam, Cymbal Roll Cres).
    Altiverb - 6 Instances (3 back, 3 front), Phillips Hall patch set to Center-Omnis @ 7.3 m (mono in/stereo out) with 15% wet.

    Though I used the GPO KS patches for this, I didn't actually change any of the voicings except flute virbrato/non-virbrato. Only controller used for GPO patches was the mod wheel. Still amazed at how quickly I can put together a sketch using GPO - all the sounds work very well right of the box.

    Enjoy,

    I really like what you have done here. To my ear the mix/FX needs a little work on some of the instruments but that is just my ear.

    All that said I enjoyed listening to it.

    Thanks for the kind words hippie (somehow that sentence doesn't sound right...). I would usually leave the mix/master to the pros. They know what they are doing! Do my own for sketches like this one. Would be interested in your take on the mix though (I think the Timpani was down to far and the strings nearly mask the piano at the beginning). The only FX used was Altiverb.

    Like your P-bass, used to have one, I use a J these days though (little faster response).

    I love my P-Bass, don't use it as much as I used to but I'll write some new stuff and plug it in. I also have a Strat, Tele and a Yamaha So8 synth. I would have a drum set but my other half said she would kill me if I brought one home. I am also a sound engineer, that's why I said to my ear.
