Bernard Duc replied to Bernard Duc's discussion Trois dessins d'enfants
"Thanks Tyler and Dave! The main reason they are so short is because I wanted the pieces to be as balanced and logical as possible (I really try to compose pieces that sound "inevitable" without sounding "predictable"). These are my first less tonal…"

Dave Ostrowski replied to Bernard Duc's discussion Trois dessins d'enfants
"Hi Bernard, 
I very much enjoyed my 3 listens.  I love the individual character of each, and its symentry as a whole.  Like Tyler, I appreciate your harmonic language.  The imitative approach to the 3rd mvmt. is very cool.  I have a real…"

Tyler Hughes replied to Bernard Duc's discussion Trois dessins d'enfants
"Very cool piece, love the harmonic language and the use of quotations through out the piece. Would love to see this expanded upon to include a couple more movements as I felt it was incredibly short. A slow movement or two would really send this…"

"Je viens de voir ton commentaire sur mon mur... Non, mon Orchestral Work n'a pas été joué mais j'ai plusieurs concerts qui approchent donc je devrais bientôt pouvoir poster de nouveaux enregistrements. Bravo pour tes compositions! J'ai notamment…"

Bernard Duc replied to Bernard Duc's discussion Score and Sound Design
"Thanks all. I agree with you Raymond, it's really generic but there are two reasons for that: the first is the movie itself. It's a very generic clip with no context, so anything too "original" will sound off (I tried, I did 88 takes of piano…"

Gavin Brown replied to Bernard Duc's discussion Score and Sound Design
"IMO the music is well-timed to the visuals and is appropriately matched in mood. Good job!"

Bernard Duc replied to Steven Moore's discussion DAW Tutorials/Resources?
"There are other DAWs most of the times they are much more expensive (and it doesn't mean they are better). Reaper has a 60 days demo (in fact it's even an unlimited demo) and is easy to install (it's only 10 MB), Mixcraft has also a free demo and…"

Bernard Duc replied to Steven Moore's discussion DAW Tutorials/Resources?
"And VERY important thing if you use VSTi: Mixcraft is still 32 bits and doesn't support 64 bits VST..."

Bernard Duc replied to Steven Moore's discussion DAW Tutorials/Resources?
"Of course you can transpose, copy and paste, but no, they don't have a score (traditional notation) view. But the piano roll contains much more information than a score and it's the traditional way to use a DAW. But it's a request and maybe someday…"

Bernard Duc replied to Steven Moore's discussion DAW Tutorials/Resources?
"Mixcraft has some interesting things but Reaper has definitely more features and since version 4.5 it's one of the best DAWs for MIDI (the weak point before)."

Bernard Duc replied to Robert Lipfriend's discussion Orchestral Software
"It depends what kind of sound you want. For a more classical sound VSL (best one if you want many articulations), LASS, Berlin Woodwinds are all very good (and can also be used for a more cinematic sound). They are quite dry, which allow you to…"

Bernard Duc replied to Adrian Allan's discussion Solitude for Flute and Guitar...brand new mix
"Very nice piece, Adrian. There are beautiful harmonies but I would love to hear the guitar have more rhythmical variations and also accompaniment change sometimes, maybe be more contrapuntal or more rhythmical."

Mohammad W.Alsaad replied to Bernard Duc's discussion Assumpta est Maria for choir (SSAATB)
"I loved the music and feelings,and I agree with Tyler..I think the notes are kind of lost and not obvious, it's just obvious that the choir team didn't take their time to practice, they don't sound confident like if each one is relying on / and…"

Bernard Duc replied to Bernard Duc's discussion Assumpta est Maria for choir (SSAATB)
"Thanks Tyler! Actually the choir is quite good (amateurs mixed with professionals), they just haven't had enough rehearsal time. And yes, some more tempo variation could be nice."

Tyler Hughes replied to Bernard Duc's discussion Assumpta est Maria for choir (SSAATB)
"For practically sight reading in the worst of conditions this is a solid piece. I liked the interplaying parts and the harmonic language. This is an ambitious piece for church choir but it is really nice. With more practice though I can hear this…"

Bernard Duc replied to michael diemer's discussion MIR vs. Virtual Soundstage?
"MIR is amazing if you use mostly VSL stuff or dry instruments, but you need a very good CPU to handle that. With Virtual Soundstage you have also presets for many "ambient" libraries (with the sound of the room, like Spitfire or EW gold stuff).…"
