Just something short, to show off a bit of what you can do. I fit Diva into my piece, not vice-versa.. in other words, I didn\'t choose the samples first then compose around them. I wanted to put something together as a composer normally would..and then say \"Hey, this piece needs solo voice,\" and then they throw it in there. Some demos are done with the composition based around the samples, and I think it\'s dishonest and misleading.
There are also a few tricks here, one of which you won\'t be able to hear too well unless you\'ve got a pair of monitors. I inserted inhales in the proper places, and even inserted an inhale right in the middle of a performance phrase, which turned out really well (at 0:37). Also, with some creative volume envelopes in your sequencer and multiple tracks of the same performance, you can easily make the soloists\' performance patches sing ANY syllable at ANY pitch you want. So for example if a performance goes \"ah na zoe,\" at the pitches of C, C, and G for example.. you\'re not stuck with those notes. You can overlap three instances of that performance at different pitches and cut the volume strategically.. and voila.. your own custom-tuned performance.
(Laughing out loud) Well, I\'m sure you can\'t be too bad! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] My 4 year old comp. probably couldn\'t handle it, anyway. Luckily, though, I\'ll have my new one by the time you release the set. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
