For anybody who knows the harp well? Are these lines playable of a harp? (Ignore the bar numbers. They don't apply here. Also, I don't know how to designate a repeated line like this)In case you're…Continue
"Oh, no. I've been concentrating on Classical for the last few years.
For my taste, it's best not to linger on a passage when a transition is calling, but that's just me. Like you, I have always found chamber music a little…"
"MIDI has its limitations, for sure. Maybe if I just wrote rock tunes.
So far, either my music isn't good enough to attract the right ears, or I haven't found the marketing magic to attract the right attention."
"Don't sweat it on my behalf Art. I enjoyed the music, the playback is a terrible hindrance to your expression, which is a fine one imo, so I hope you can get a live performance and more importantly a recording."
"Mike, I think I can mock up scores for the 3 movements in a couple of days. They will probably lack much in the way of pauses, dynamics or tempos, but the notes will all be there. Would that suffice?"
"Those are some really nice remarks, Mike. Thank you.
Getting real live musicians to perform my music is what I'm working for, here. I don't think a piece is really complete until it's been interpreted by other artists. (I have a…"
This work has some great moments and is incredibly inventive. I do like your harmonic sense and lyricism.
I'm sure this would sound even more effective with real players imparting emotion to the lines and some of the busy, intricate…"
"I think I can imagine how screensets could be useful. I arrange my workflow 1 task at a time. When I'm inputting notes, that's all I'm doing. Then, I go back in the indiviual track views to adjust velocities and then the main…"
"fair enough Art, but the point is that you have everything you want at the press of a button to get rid of clutter...but I guess it's only for if you want to go deeper into the programming. At least you've got your own way, thats' the…"
"Thanks for the suggestion about screensets, Mike But I have a workflow that works well for me, and it doesn't involve screensets. Way too much clutter to deal with as I see it. One, comprehensive window with the MIDI tracks I have selected…"
"I didn't fully understand the linking part, but the setup looks close to what I was after - however I'm not sure how you open four PR at once as independent windows. I think I've done it once by accident when I wasn't meaning to,…"
I see, that is useful....
I managed to sort of do it, it may not be suitable but worth a go...
Open up a clean screenshot.
Open up 4 piano rolls and re-size and position as desired
Open up an arrange page too.
Colour the regions in the arrange…"
"No (but thanks) . . . the colour thing is something I do for editing and general housekeeping, but to actually input notes you can only have one piano roll active at once. I need multiple ones so I can just write in four parts at once, without…"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
It's been a life-long dream drive to create music. Been in bands, played in orchestras and listened to it all. I've always wanted to compose, but didn't think I could do it until I got serious about working with DAWs. I guess the DAW is my instrument now.
