    Re: 2 tunes

    Hey, the composition sounds pretty nice, but I\'d have to say that the performance and expression of the strings could use a lot of work.

    Were you aiming to sound realistic, or was this just a sketch? Your string lines are very, \"blocky.\" The need to be mucho grande legato, and it could stand a lot more phrasing as well.

    Keep plugging, but try to make each track as realistically as you can.

    Thanks, A_Sapp.
    About realism - I\'ve used only 5 basic patches for strings (first violins, second v., violas, cellos, basses) with no changes. I didn\'t use any expression, legato, not event volume controller, I\'ve just recorded basic tones, and played a bit only with velocity. So it could be propably called \"sketch\" rather than aim to sound realistic. In fact, I never did any realistic tune yet..

    A_Sapp: Gigastrings, Xsample..

    Sharmy: Thanks. It is, of course, all quantized [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] . I understand, but I record every part and line separately, not in chord blocks. But yes, you\'re right, I propably think of harmonies too vertically, so it\'s still too similar to chords. I\'d like to be able write more \"horizontally\", but I\'ve never seen any orchestration/harmony book in my life, nor orchestra partiture (excepts some Mozart\'s which were too complicated), so the harmony and orchestration in my tune are propably too simple.

    I assume you mean Garritan?
