    The Mornings Blush (classical guitar)

    This is a very recent classical guitar piece that I wrote. It uses "Ilya Efimov Nylon Guitar" library. To my ears, this is the best sounding nylon string guitar library out there.
    I would appreciate any input on this.
    Thanks. Jay

    Hi Jay,


    What a sweet treat you offered us. I'm only a short term member of this forum and I've never heard a solo guitar piece here. This first one is really a hit! And you're right, the samples are excellent, although I would prefer the 'mic' not so close, with some extra convolution ambience.

    Bravissimo, a truly magnificent, delicate piece of intimate music.

    Thanks for the listen Max. I generally prefer a smaller room for guitar music. For me, it makes the sound a little more intimate, but I can hear more reverb on this and it would also work nicely.
    Thanks. Jay

    That's really nice, Mister Jay! I like it!

    Just a tad more reverb would make for a smoother sound as it would "fill in" the spaces between notes.

    Great job!

    Merry Christmas to you and Miss Kate.

    Best,

    Jay,

    This is a very gentle piece that is played in a gentle meditative way
    and I find that the sound of this guitar suits it perfectly.

    Thanks for posting, I enjoyed hearing!

    Larry! Thanks for taking time to listen and I am glad that you liked it. Merry Christmas back at ya.

    Yudit! Thanks for the nice comment. I enjoy working with this particular library because it has many useful guitar articulations and the sound is great.

    Thank you both. Jay

    Beautiful piece, Jay, wonderfully arranged for classical guitar - And beautifully rendered with this Library you've used. I'd never heard of it before, looked it up - ah wouldn't you know, another Library only for the full Kontakt. And for me, the amount of reverb you've used is perfect. It sounds like many recordings of a live guitar where the miking is intimate like this. While it would sound fine a bit farther away, as long as it's still in a smallish room, this close mike technique works very well, I think.

    Beautiful - Thanks, Jay!

    Thanks a bunch Randy! I have always kept the reverb on the minimal side for most things that I do. It is just my preference. I like guitar to be on the cozy side so I usually choose a small room size for it.
    Thanks for listening and your input. Jay

    A very enjoyable and tasty classical guitar piece Jay.

    It does sound very realistic and full. I'm glad you didn't put verb on it so I could hear it up close. I can hear the little noises and sounds that come with a real guitar recording. The subtle perfect imperfections that make it sound organic.

    I have a nice Martin acoustic and Fender electric guitar with Amplitude for guitar effects but I could see owning a few of these guitar and other instrument plug-ins also. I bit the bullet this summer and picked up the full Kontact when it was 1/2 off list price. It's pretty much a must have sample player anymore.

    Hey Phil. Thanks for listening and I am glad that you liked this. I did put some reverb on it, but just kept it to a low level.
    I think it is incredible how software developers can get instrument noises in the samples. It just adds so much more realism to the instrument.
    Thanks for the input. Jay
