    short tune, VSL + SAM horns and bones

    Hi,

    Here is a little piece I have been working on.

    http://www.digitalsoundplanet.com/Members/000116831_000009905.mp3

    Please have a go with it and tell me what you think.

    The VSL repetition goes a bit off in some places, but what a heck.

    You like the Planet Of The Apes soundtrack! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] It does sound amazing, and very realistic.

    Nice Lex. Keep it going. I do believe there\'s some more in there.
    What are those loud clack/Tob like hits in the second half, if you don\'t mind divulging.

    Great tune Lex. Question - in your opinion how do the Sam horns compare to the VSL horns?

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">I have only VSL performance set, but my opinion is that these to are 2 completly different instruments. VSL horns are not french horns and do not sound even close to SAMs huge french horns.

    I love them both, but I use them for completly diferent things.

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Actually, they are French horns because they use piston valves (twin pistons, as is the Viennese model) with a smaller bore size. Double horns with rotary valves and larger bores are German, not French though unfortunately everyone seems to want to give the French credit for the Germans\' design.

    So VSL are French forns, and the huge Wagnerish sound that we asociate with french forn is acctualy a German Horn?

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">According to Adlers Study of Orchestration, most Horns were German made anyway. Or at least in the development of its early construction. Horns parts were marked cor de chasse; French for hunting horn. Hence the term French Horn was born.

    I did read somewhere that the Viennese Horns have a smaller bore?

    Anyway, very nice piece Lex. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
