I\'ve been checking out this forum for the last year or so, and I\'ve learned a lot from you all. I\'ve also really enjoyed all of your original compositions. So now I\'ve finally worked up to posting a comp [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
I cracked open my copy of Diva several hours ago, added ingredients, baked at 350 degrees, and here is the result.
The music is nice, the crescendo is way too dynamic and rough, imo.
The samples: What mp3 encoder are you using? Sounds like a filter on your track. The diva samples sound better than what I\'ve heard before, but this time it sounds like there\'s a weird noise reduction filter on it or some strange EQ. They sound dull and lifeless without the high freq. material that it should have. This goes for the whole mix actually. I\'m guessing it\'s your mp3 encoder, but it might actually be the diva samples themselves or the way you mixed the piece.
Yeah, I think I agree. I think I\'m going to try a 1 or 2 db boost on vocals and see how it sounds. Thanks for the input.
Wow, that is a really huge compliment. Thanks Carl.
I\'m using the Fraunhofer encoder that comes with Cooledit. Do you think the dynamics and roughness is more a mixing issue or an orchestration issue? I\'m guessing the dullness that you hear is from my mixing. For the most part, I didn\'t touch the eq - so this could be the root of the problem. Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate it.
Thanks! Francis will be glad to hear this [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
I listened to this on my little internet speakers, so I didn\'t notice anything wrong except I thought the crescendo could use a little choir behind it. Anyway, the samples didn\'t sound like samples and the music was really nice. Great job and cool library! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
