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
This is a piece written for chamber orchestra that I would like to get some feedback and criticism on. It is a short piece in what is roughly an impressionistic style. All comments are welcome,…Continue
I haven't posted any music for a while so here is a piece I would like to get some criticism of. This is a woodwind quintet that is tonal and quite accessible. It is influenced by the classical…Continue
"Sounds great Michael, thanks for sharing this! Is this the stock soundset that comes with Staffpad? I looks like there are other libraries that you can get, I wonder how different they would be as far as articulations etc. Did you export an mp3…"
"Hi Kjell, this is very well done and enjoyable to listen to. You have beautiful harmony and phrasing here and the sound is good as well. I do like when the piano takes a more active roll and I feel that you could include more of that. That…"
"Hi Nigel, I do like what you have here. Repetition is always tricky to deal with but I don't think it is a problem for this piece; it is often a strong tool for many of us and it certainly works here for me at least. You do have some variation…"
"I do prefer the brass version of your piece Ali. It is possible that the music is better suited to brass but it could also be that the brass library is of better quality or maybe it's just my personal preference it is hard for me to say.
"This is a very nice piece Saul with good sound, very enjoyable.
Composer's forum is a great place to get encouragement and to learn stuff as well, I always appreciate that Gav Brown makes the effort to maintain this place for us. Spitfire…"
"Hi Ali, I listened to your Wind Trio and it seems you have deleted your Brass Trio. I don't know if you wanted us to compare the two but I understand Gav's desire to limit our posts here. Perhaps you can post the Brass Trio later and refer…"
Yes my score for this piece is confusing. I'm sure Sibelius has a way of switching off the function that omits empty staves from the score but I haven't found it yet, sorry about that! The score has some other errors as well but it…"
I found this a bit challenging to get through, partly because the hidden staving threw me for a loop, but also partly because at some point after the rapid 16ths the score and the sound file part ways and I get lost. Overall, I found I had…"
"Ingo, and all:
Just a side comment about slurs and NP... when I first started with notation software it was with MuseScore and I used very few slurs. A neighbor who is a professional composer wondered why there were no legato markings in my string…"
"Very nice piece Gav, I'm partial to 3 beat stuff too, it has an irresistible flow. I like your harmonies and the unusual instrument combination as well (well unusual to me at least). The pizzicato passage is very effective, well…"
"That is a very good point Ali and I have a good excuse. Sort of. When I wrote this piece I had very few slurs. Then I got NotePerformer and it does a great job with slurs, inserting them automatically, maybe too well defined. So I got happy with…"
A happy piece... Sounds like a neoclassic piece.
I wonder what Gav would say about this.
It seems it is missing slurs. Maybe it would perform them as slurs and the piece
would sound more tender as it is very tender in…"
"This is very different now from what I remember Tim. The previous track was an interesting combination of piano with a rock band which startled all of us I think and we all had to think of how to react.
This track is very unusual, a bit unsettling…"
