Keman replied to Nir Shor's discussion Is this orchestral mockup too dry ?
"In my humble opinion:
- The harp is too close... I'd use different samples (for the harp), and definitely more reverb on it. If you don't have better samples, try a slower attack.
- I'd personally put a lot more reverb on all solo instruments…"

Keman replied to Christopher Sahar's discussion Orchestration of Rachmaninoff's song Lilacs
"Maybe "lyrical" is not the expression I was looking for. What I mean is that when I think of an instrument that reminds me of lilacs the horn is not the first one that comes to my mind.
In any case, I also wrote "personally". It's a choice, not…"

Keman replied to Christopher Sahar's discussion Orchestration of Rachmaninoff's song Lilacs
"I'm not an expert, but here are some thoughts:
- Always specify the number of instruments playing. It should be instantly clear how many flutes, oboes etc. you want. Also, if you have two clarinets, always specify whether both clarinets have to play…"

Tyler Hughes replied to Keman's discussion Hindemith Analysis - Help!
"Im suspecting its bitonal or a very chromatically ornamented passage in the music. 
I will listen to it and see if I can get a little more information that way. Which movement is that passage from?"

Keman replied to Keman's discussion Hindemith Analysis - Help!
"Yes, sorry, it's a bit confusing. All strings have their "standard" clefs.
In the first bar the strings play Am, F#m/A, Dsus4/A. However, the flute melody in the first bar appears to be first in A minor, then in F minor (rather unrelated to the F#…"

Tyler Hughes replied to Keman's discussion Hindemith Analysis - Help!
"In what context are you trying to find out how they relate? And I cant see the clefs, can I assume the viola is still in alto clef or has it changed clefs?"

"Tremolo sul ponticello is easy, just mess with the EQ. Whether it sounds authentic or just passable depends on how much time you're willing to spend messing around with it. With enough bands you can pretty much create the effect, not merely imitate…"

Keman replied to Keman's discussion Something Like This...
"Yep, but they are just "regular" glissandos, I need something where the string players play a glissando over all natural harmonics of a string (in this case, C for the low strings and G for all strings together). ADENS SKY said:

"EWQL Symphonic orchestra? Try Clstr & air located in 18 Violin effects. Or 11 violin effects, there's A LOT of really good glissandos! You can hear one i used in my song "IN THE MIND OF A KILLER" at the very end. Hope you find what your looking for!"

Keman replied to Keman's discussion Something Like This...
"I have EWQL and Symphobia, but I haven't been able to find a library that includes that effects. Do you know anything?
For this project I ended up sampling this effect myself with a few string players, and it sounds pretty amazing. ADENS SKY…"
