Colin Dougall replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Music for Orchestra 5
" Hi Dane
Here's my impression of your impression! Taken on its own, if you view it as almost 6 minutes of music from an unknown timeline then you can't fault it - it has grabbed my attention and got me listening. What came before it and what comes…"

Colin Dougall replied to Saul Gefen's discussion Lyrical Piece In G Major for Piano
"Hi Saul
It certainly conjures up a sunny day. A lovely piece from start to finish.
p.s I've often wondered what composers mean by 'lyrical" - dream-like, impessionistic, gentle - not played with hammers, doesn't jump around too much?
Thanks, Colin"

Colin Dougall replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion String Qt 2nd movement.
"Hi Dane
Just listened to this - catching up on stuff that I've missed. It's an impressive piece, no doubt. Certainly deserving of a performance by a good quartet. Words like "stark", "lunar", "austere" & "desolate" spring to mind when I'm listening…"

" Hi Saul
Just listened to this - certainly an enjoyable piece, lively, optimistic - a breath of fresh air given the current climate.

Jos Wylin replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 & Kontakt Player
"Hi Colin,
I just saw your call about VE Pro 7 and Kontakt (with multi). I finished some sort of tutorial last week on this tough topic. It may not be perfect, but I've tested it and it works. So I'm glad to send here a copy of the tutorial.…"

Timothy Smith replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 & Kontakt Player
" When I built my computer I had 16gb of memory in it. The MOBO I bought has provision for 128gb of memory. 
I've never had the need to add any more. I suppose I'm just a small composer in terms of building mixes. I started out as an acoustic player…"

"Good luck in finding a solution for this Colin. VE Pro looks like an interesting program.
I guess we all have differing approaches and ways of working that work best for us. My personal approach is to almost never have any kind of vst shell with too…"

Colin Dougall replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 & Kontakt Player
"Hi
I'm using VE Pro mainly because Dorico Pro 2 was giving me a hard time with load/unload times with VE and generally slowing down when I'm using a lot of libraries (esp VSL) - loading all the libraries into a host takes a lot of the strain away…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 & Kontakt Player
"Thank you for your reply, Michael. Most cautionary. I think I can dld the manual without buying it. Well, this isn't the place to discuss VSL software as a subject alone except I can't help say the VEpro must be quite something. Over the months I've…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 & Kontakt Player
"Michael....hi
I don't want to divert the thread but I'm particularly interested in this. I'm more of a musician than a tech guy so I'm reluctant to get tied up in jargon which would be the case if I queried this on VSL's forum so....
What extra did…"

Colin Dougall replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 & Kontakt Player
"I've made some progress. I can load multiple instances of Kontakt into a single VEP instance but in order to address each of them I need to change the port numbers. So three Kontakt instances would be addressed as 1.1, 2.1, and 3.1 and so on. The…"

John Driscoll replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 & Kontakt Player
"Check to make sure the MIDI channel # in the Kontakt player (under "Port A [from host]") also matches the MIDI channel in VEP (Kontakt defaults to 1 when you load it, so I always need to change it)"

Colin Dougall replied to Lennart Östman's discussion First Light - for string quartet and English horn
"Hi Lennart
It is a pleasant enough piece as it stands, but I think the horn is hiding too much in the background. To my mind it should have a stronger melodic presence than it currently has and should "boss" the strings a bit more.
Thanks, Colin."
