What am I up to? Well, I am really hoping to find a friendly composer who is also a good viola player (and another who is a horn player, and one who is a harpist,) to check though some new scores. I would never put out a piece for harp until an…

"I have just listened, and I know you put it up as a sound sample, but I can't resist saying how much i liked it as a piece of music too ! 
The sounds were very good too, and had a good choral quality. I will check out whether it could be used with…"

"Thanks Michael, 
I have not heard of VOP so will check it out. Think i will probably not be going in to world builder (well, maybe just the odd piece !) as can't face spending so much time as a technician !
I tend to compose orchestral things on…"

"Hi Suzanne.

I had been using Noteperformer with Sibelius, I think it does a good job of interpreting phrasing. Sounds are better than default Sibelius.

I also got “Voices of Prague” when it was on special a few months ago. Haven’t checked the…"

"Thanks for that Dane. it seems that lots doesn't run on Sibelius ! Have just found "BBC Symphony Orchestra" by Spitfire Audio (no vocals, but good orch. sounds) also doesn't run on Sib well. May be useful for others though, as the sounds were good,…"

"I doubt this is going to be helpful but, going through some past bits and pieces I unearthed a wordless madrigal I wrote and mocked it up with Peter Siedlaczek's classical choir - a set of samples covering several styles. While I believe it's still…"

Suzanne Munro replied to Suzanne Munro's discussion SPRING INTO SUMMER - Video with my piano music and poetry
"Thanks Dane ! Well, I am delighted it afforded you some obvious pleasure, and thank you for such lovely and uplifting comments !
Yes, the volume is rather to quiet... I worked on it with head phones, on laptop, ... but could not really test, as the…"

"What a lovely piece. Just what I need to soothe the savage beast or is it 'breast' after wrestling with converting an xml into notation software. (Oh that I could be a magician to ensorcel it into doing the right thing!) 
The music is calm, the…"

"Hi Stephen, yet another useful reply. I like this forum, as one does get real help when one posts a query !
I wonder why the demos sound better? I heard Note Performer on a sound sample from a member here, and thought it sounded great. We downloaded…"

"Hi Suzanne,
I saw some reviews of the East west subscription service and overall it got about 2 stars.
Mostly because people were getting charged for a year, even after cancelling after a month.

Also, their libraries are getting old and the quality…"

"Hi Gav,
Firstly, I really like the rather haunting melody in "Remembering December," lots of beautiful moments.
Unfortunately, i don't  think this would be an option for me, due to the cost. I have a good friend who is a professional mezzo, and can…"

Gavin Brown replied to Suzanne Munro's discussion sound libraries for choral works comparable with Sibelius
"The proprietor is a man named Carlos Cordero and he does all the singing. I sent him a Finale File and an MP3 and he uses those to come up with a price quote. Not sure if he works with other notation programs.
Here is a sample for one voice, Alto.…"

"Hi Susan,
I  use The Happy Choir, an internet service that provides a real singer for a fee per song, and have been quite happy with the result. I can give more details or samples of their work on my songs, ask if interested -

"Thanks Dane !
I hate notation software (well the sounds mostly) too; but I guess it saves all that part copying eventually (if anything gets played !) and is handy for converting to pdfs to send music through email. Gosh, to think we used to sit can…"
