Only One Life-Organ, flute and string section

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dane Aubrun Jun 5. 5 Replies

This is a composition I made based loosely on some of the techniques Bach used. No it isn't Bach, doesn't sound like Bach, but it uses the organ as a basis which he liked to do. He usually began with…Continue

Some DAW plug in Deals that might be too good to pass up

No this isn't spam or me trying to sell you anything. I've been recording for quite awhile and during that time you begin to see what's good and what isn't. During this process I sometimes come…Continue

The Mystery

This is mood music mainly designed for relaxation. I am learning the workings of a new harp vst I just picked up on a Valantine's day sale. …Continue

"Well, I quite enjoyed it. It's one grand blast!  But I echo the comments of others. I noticed at around 16 secs you landed a pedal in the left hand, the D, with a lot going on in the right hand that was drowned out. Also couldn't…"

"Nice work here. I guess any comments on augmentation would be only opinions and subjective. I feel like I say that a lot lol.  If you really want guitar I suggest something very simple. Make it a duet."

"Ingo Lee, I appreciate your comments! Believe it or not I have attempted to work on this mix some more. Looks Like I need to maybe go back to the mixer and work on it some more. I even changed organs mid stream (that didn't sound right did it…"

Ingo Lee replied to Timothy Smith's discussion Only One Life-Organ, flute and string section
"Hi Timothy - I enjoyed this, it is an interesting approach to a familiar style and a great sound.  Steve has made some good points about balance and I'm interested to see if you can change that.  If you have made a midi recording of…"

Timothy Smith replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion SOHO 3 a.m.
"This was definitely mood music but sophisticated mood music done well. I especially liked your choice of the sax. I wonder how the sax became associated with the sometimes seedy and sexy? It seems to be often presented in this way in compositions.…"

Timothy Smith replied to Jon Corelis's discussion Sail Away, Ladies for solo viola
"Hi Jon, Nice work here. I am with Stephen here. It's a jolly tune. I play intermediate violin. Not very familiar with viola as such but I know a few people who are. It seems a bit unusual to write a tune mainly for viola since that instrument…"

"Hi Steve, Thank you for listening and for your comments. Understandably there is no bass pedal hence my use of the left hand to mimic the bass pedal. I could probably work with the sampled organ library some more to trim the bass which is what I…"

Steve Chandler replied to Timothy Smith's discussion Only One Life-Organ, flute and string section
"Your tutti organ drowns out the strings. I think I could hear the flute, but not very well. Bach certainly would have registered the organ part to mix better with the other instruments. For organists registration is the art of selecting stops on a…"

Only One Life-Organ, flute and string section

This is a composition I made based loosely on some of the techniques Bach used. No it isn't Bach, doesn't sound like Bach, but it uses the organ as a basis which he liked to do. He usually began with the bass and lower parts and made a sort of "foundation" to build the rest on. This is what I have done here.He also tended to use harmony and chords in unusual unusual arrangements for his time. So I kinda loosely followed his agenda. Not true baroque. Uses some elements of it.What are your…See More

"Michael, Can you tell me if I can use an old Korg usb stick for the licenses? I was cleaning and found it the other day. No longer needed for Korg because they went to a different validation scheme that no longer uses the the dongle. Seems I…"

Timothy Smith replied to Doug Lauber's discussion Choose Your Best Samples
"Dane, I believe the sample library companies biggest customers are Television/movie/video game/advertisement composers. I could be wrong, but I don't think I am. For every successful movie composer there are likely 1000 or more wanna be's.…"

"I've heard good things about Vienna. I was hesitant because you need a dongle. Not a deal breaker. Mainly I'm running out of usb ports. Most composers who liked Spitfire also liked Vienna. If I see a deal I might look at their libs in the…"

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I have been involved in music for most of my life although I don't make a living at music. I would consider myself a hobbyist composer. I don't attempt to market any of my music, although I have released a guitar CD. I play guitar, piano, bouzouki, harmonica, and am an aspiring violinist. I am a worship leader/pianist at my local church. My website online mainly deals with world and Celtic music styles.
