    Full Band--COMB 1

    Hello again...
    Been looking through some places for things to keep the Summerfest going.

    Here's an early attempt using the first version of COMB and Overture 4.

    Again, if I were redoing this today, I'd do more with it, but to me, a great feature of Garritan libraries is that they can make a good sound with just a little effort.

    I may revisit this, but my "real, live euphonium" schedule is so tight these days and my day job is going to be kicking into gear shortly, so I better practice

    A Snorlax double header! My my this sounds so nice - I was listening on headphones this morning, but just a few seconds in knew my wife would enjoy this too, so I put it on the speakers. My wife says, "Great! What a rousing but uplifting way to start the day!"

    Just as you said on your other post this morning, these pieces you're re-posting really do amply demonstrate how great Garritan Libraries can sound without a tremendous, straining effort. I think you should still be very happy with this recording, indeed.

    And Overture has come up on several posts recently, here and on the technical Forums. A lot of folks still use it, finding it fairly easy to use. Newcomers to GPO probably don't know that GPO1 originally shipped with Overture included, so users had a way to work with notation without having to buy a separate program. A light version of Cubase also came with GPO. I still have my boxed GPO with those two programs included.

    EDIT: Meant to also say that this "e snips" site where the piece is posted looks great - fun animation display during the music. Cool.

    Excellent stuff, Jim - Take a bow.

    Hello again, Jim. Something very rare had happened today for me. I had commented on all but two of the posts on the front page of the listening room. I was wondering when something new would be posted, and was glad to see two from you! I really enjoy the few pieces of Holst I have heard, but haven't heard nearly enough of his music, so this is just great! Really nice concert band music here, also something I don't see much of on the forums, so thanks again for sharing!

    Awesome, I played this piece back in high school and loved it. I love it just as much today. This sounds great!

    Hey, Snor! At least a few of us have been listening - see our posts? Kerbumping so maybe some more will be lucky enough to click and listen.

    Randy,
    Yes, I have noticed the comments & appreciate all of them...I just didn't want to hog up the forum
    I figured I'd let some things come up to the top...

    So to all--thanks for the kind words. In the future, I'll respond to each comment as long as it doesn't violate Listening Room Etiquette (LRE)

    Cool, Jim - Just wasn't sure if you'd noticed all your admirers! Noooo danger of hogging the Forum - It's clipping along pretty nicely these days, and some things get swept away pretty fast! Doing my bit to keep stuff in the limelight where it belongs.

    Etiquette schemtiquette - we're in the new age of the Garritan Forum where most anything goes, didn't ya know?!

    Well I have to say that the COMB sounds really nice. You did such a great job on this. It brings back memories from WAY back playing in symphonic band with things like Sousa (I know your piece is not a march but has similar instrumentation). So thanks for posting.

    Thanks, Bruce--how ya doin?
    And Jim...thanks as well!

    I just wish I had the time to REALLY get these pieces in shape...too busy actually playing the euphonium!
    Maybe when I become a person of leisure I can work more on them.

    I continue to be amazed by what COMB and other Garritan libraries can do with a medium level of processing!

    And I really had some fun putting this together--and I really learned the score, too!!

    See ya around somewhere, Bruce...(For those that don't know, Bruce's home of Indianapolis is a northern suburb of my home, Franklin)

    Jim
    PS--Jim S., some Sousa will be released within a week or so. Stay tuned...
