Colin Dougall replied to Gabriel Kovalov's discussion Piano trio- Viola, Cello,Piano
"Hi
Really liked this - quite a blend of consance/dissonance, sweet and sour melody,question-answer, question-question, a lot of structure and seemingly random acts of note hitting on the piano. It certainly holds the attention and is really quite…"

" Hi
A great waltz - I think waltzes are absolutely the most fun things to write, every composer shoud write at least one! - Colin"

Colin Dougall replied to Ali Riza SARAL's discussion Horn Trio - Fishermen's Hope
"Hi
Very nice indeed - a most interesting piece. When you anounce the phrase on the Fsharp chord on horn 1 over bars 18-20 my brain told me you were going to immediately repeat the same phrase in E and take off into a more "traditional" (aka…"

Colin Dougall replied to Jason Sioco's discussion My First Waltz Tune
" Hi Jason
I wouldn't call it a "waltz" - there's no dum-ching-ching for a start.
The melody is the gold here - similar groove as your previous tune, you keep that and disregard the rest - I'm assuming that the backing is more from band-in-a-box. It…"

Colin Dougall replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Soraidh Leis an t-Òban Lathurna (farewell to Oban) - Arranged for Pip
"Hi
I would agree the tune tends to be obscured - it's particularly noticeable on stop changes between loud and not loud where I've found if I let the last stop ring out over an empty bar it mitigates the problem somewhat. But i think the answer is…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Soraidh Leis an t-Òban Lathurna (farewell to Oban) - Arranged for Pip
"Like Ingo says, it works but I'm not too sure about the weight the organ gives. Be assured that I love this instrument and am a great fan of mutation stops and it sounds like you've added at least one in the louder middle section (or some…"

Ingo Lee replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Soraidh Leis an t-Òban Lathurna (farewell to Oban) - Arranged for Pip
"Hi Colin - Very nice sound here, your piece fits perfectly with the organ.  To my ear acoustic music in general doesn't need much compression or exciter but what you have works well. I guess it's just a matter of taste, and using VSL's components is…"

Colin Dougall replied to Saul Gefen's discussion On the Hills of Asia
"Hi
The flutes sound excellent - nicely played. I have some reservations about the piano though - IMHO it doesnt really suit the "vibe" of the piece. Native instruments have released a free Yangqin which might be of interest to you. Thanks, Colin"

HiThis is the Celeste part of the String Quintet of the same name which i posted a few days ago arranges for the organ - I used VSL's Great Reiger Organ. I added compression and an exciter from Vienna Suite Pro - not sure exactly what I was doing…

"Hey Collin, That;s fantastic!
Let me know if you run into a snag or have any questions. I use TRacks stand alone. You may simply drag your audio track into it for mastering.You then set the directory to where you want the file to go and export."

"Good to hear from you as well Ingo. I believe there are different workflows that people tend to develop over time when it comes to mixing and mastering. I guess a person who only mixes one type or genre can lock that in even more. My music and my…"

"Hi
I had a look at IK's T-Rack 5. Apparently I bought T-Rack way back in 2017 (I can't remember bbuying it) and when I logged into my IK account, which I haven't done in a few years, T-Rack 5 appeared as a free update so I've downloaded it. I have…"

Ingo Lee replied to Colin Dougall's discussion Online Mastering Services
"Hi Tim, good to see you here.  As far as mastering goes, as I understand it, the main point is to prepare a recording for delivery to its intended market, whether it's a dance club or on-line streaming or the CF forum, or any of many other places? …"

"I once experemented with Landr. It's ok for anyone who doesn't want to try their own mastering but I would say, not as good as having the tools to do it yourself.
There are diffeent characters to different masters and many dedicated mastering…"
