I recently purchased VSL Solo Strings and I'm learning to use the free VSL player that comes with that library. Dane Aubrun has posted some beautiful pieces on Composer's Forum using VSL so I asked…Continue
About the VI pro player, the features that make it difficult to go back to the free player that I can think of now -
the extra slots
enveloped time stretch
extending the range of instruments (up to 4 semitones either…"
"To be able to adjust those samples like that without distortion or artifacts is pretty impressive. The player is about 55 euros if I understand correctly which seems pretty reasonable when you consider the capabilities you mention. I haven't…"
"Another benefit of the VI pro player is the "stretch" feature found on the advanced view.
It allows the speed of an articulation to be adjusted up to 100% slower or 50% faster.
In my latest effort this has come into its own: slowing down…"
"So you have lyrics Ali, all you need is a singer!
Selling is easy, you just post it here.
The hard part is promotion, marketing, getting someone to go to BandCamp and spend money.
But others do it, why not you?"
"Geert I think you're right that it would be interesting to see what various musicians might do with your piece in terns of interpretation but at the same time it might be a disappointment as well. Providing at least some guidelines might…"
"Great piece Gavin, I like it! A neat blend of orchestral and drums, could be soundtrack or a dance track I think. Good use of theme and development, interesting rhythms and harmonies and it all fits together well. Orchestration works well…"
"Hi 8 rivers - You have the poster from 'Alien' on your SoundCloud page for this recording. If you listen to the theme music for Alien you'll hear what is stereo typed as foreboding or threatening music. Your piece starts…"
"I found this interesting Geert, I listened with and without the score. After a while I was able to pick out the lines without the score for the most part since they repeat so much. The exception was the harpsichord which I was only able to hear at a…"
"Beautiful stuff here Nigel, I enjoyed it. Very ambient and peaceful but with detail for those of us who are listening closely which is appreciated. I think the drums could come up some without intruding but we'd have to hear it to be sure I…"
"You have a good command of arranging and sound production 8 Rivers. To me it doesn't seem foreboding or threatening, you could probably easily insert some darker and more dissonant elements but it's your piece and it works well as is."
"Well done Papageno, in the classical style. It sounds familiar which means you are following good influences, hopefully not too closely :) Could use some dynamics?
Your sound production is acceptable to me but your work would be much more…"
"It's hard to believe that someone would attempt litigation over a small sum of money, especially knowing his case is weak, but litigation usually means uncertainty for both parties. Of course winning a judgement and forcing a payment are two…"
"Hi Charles -
I'm not a lawyer but I'll poke my nose in here anyway. A written contract could have prevented this problem, but you still have some type of agreement in place which could be considered a contract. Did you communicate by…"
"Hi James -
Which line is the cantus firmus? Is the computer generating both lines? Neither line is an example of a well written cantus firmus. Maybe you should start with a known cantus firmus from Fux and let the computer generate the…"
What have you composed for? Or what medium do you work around?
Film, Web, Small Ensemble, Songs, Contemporary Ensembles
What is your favorite genre or style of music?
I like them all
Is music your main income source?
No - Not at all.
Where do you live?
About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I've played various styles of music semi-professionally off and on for many years, and written both instrumental and vocal material during most of that time.
