I was hesitating to post an incomplete piece here, but I am curious about feedback and want to share with you this work-in-progress, and so here it is, my latest work with GPO and SONAR 8.5: the first half of the second movement of Gustav Mahler's Symphony #1.
with the WMA file here: http://www.virtualphilharmonic.co.uk...ahler_S1M2.wma
This is only the first half of this movement - up to the Trio. The recording is in "rehearsal" status, meaning I will have to smooth out many things. Some instruments are too loud, and I have my usual trouble with the proper tempo. This time I tried to record many parts "live play" instead of step / quantize recording, but the lag on my system of about 30 ms (and my lack of good keyboard playing technique) prevented me to play accurately, so there appear a few slight "hick-ups" which I will have to correct later manually. First priority in the next weeks is to complete this movement - and then "attack" the two remaining movements of this symphony: the first and the fourth (these are really monumental challenges.... not sure that I can complete that by Mahler's 150th birthday on 7.July)...
