video also.

(w/o a score it just 'felt' that way to…"

Dave Ostrowski replied to Dan Depolito's discussion Dare Alla Luce (Give To The Light)
"Hi Dan, I really like this piece. It's got a real pensive quality to my ear, as if someone's got a lot on their mind.   It's the repeated figure in the right and that's mostly doing it for me.  The mid section offers a nice solace or repose, and I…"

"Did they remove the score editor in Cubase?  I used it quite extensively up till around SX and I could get some really fancy scores, graphic notation and everything."

Dan Depolito replied to Dan Depolito's discussion Anyone using Cubase in conjunction with Scoring software such as Finale or Sibelius?
"Hi Tim,Thanks for the reply.I should have explained that Cubase will allow only one page (JPG) at a time to be printed, which to me is rather useless unless the song is less than 32 bars long. Tim Marko said:

I can't answer the questions regarding Cubase, but here's a link to a free software that allows you to print anything to a PDF.

You print the score you do have and select this as the printer.  Easy to use."

  • Hello Dan, and thank you!

    Jobim is really great! You should try other Brazilian musicians too, like Chico Buarque, Caetano Veloso, and some other ones that are not that famous outside the country. I can show you some of them if you want!

    Great! I'll upload my music here anytime soon.

    Cheers,

    Gustavo
