Thought I should post a piece as just joined this forum. This is a fairly simple piece I wrote last week which forms the 2nd movement of a String Quartet called "The Russian" Hope someone likes! Just changed to MP3 and will delete other thread...

  • Hello!

    It's really nice, joyful piece. Unfortunately, quality of recording is terrible. Have you considered using some orchestra vst samples to make your music sound much better? It is time-consuming, but I think the piece is worth it. 
    And if it is possible, please give us the score, so we can look at it.

  • Great thanx , never done that before, how do I do that?

  • It may seem to be quite complicated for the first time. And it depends on tools you use. There are some tutorials on youtube, and you can google some others how to use it. Which program did you use to write this? 

    First of all, you must find vst plugin to download, with good souds. Vst plugin is something like "simulator" of real instrument, which you connect to the program in which you write notes.Professional vst-plugins are very expensive and weight a lot (don't be suprised!), but you can find some free ones, which will fit for the begining. At youtube you can find demos of plugins which will help you. 
    After that you should find out from the tutorial how to connect it to your program. It should not be too difficult. 

    Maybe on this forum you will find a separate discussion connected with that topic?

  • wow! thanx very much Jakob!

  • Yes ill post the score too - I need to work out how Sibelius can save score in a suitable format...

  • Hi Paul, here the opinion of another rookie... I like the piece, it takes you with it, feels like a dance. Nice to listen to. I cannot give you any advice for making it better as I am new in this myself.

  • Wow, I like this piece! Very lively and fun to listen to. Do you have a score for it? That would help us give you more specific feedback.

  • What a fun piece!  I enjoyed it a lot.  By the way, the ending is missing, i.e., the recording ends early.

    I would love to hear this piece live!
