Re: The Wind and the Lake (classical / symphonic poem)

Now that I think about it, a MuseScore integration may not be enough for us Linux users, if they don't make NotePerformer work on Linux too. That is what I fear. But I don't know for sure. When I'll run MuseScore 4 natively on Linux, it might be possible to run NotePerformer via Wine, no? Just in t...

Re: The Wind and the Lake (classical / symphonic poem)

Thanks! Just this morning I've found out MuseScore is revamping their software, and v4 will integrate much better with external VSTs and stuff like that. They explicitly mentioned NotePerformer, which I've been intrigued by for a long time: apparently they manage to get reasonably good sounding res...

Re: Flow

Very atmospheric and groovy as usual! I like the sample at 3:40, it feels like a "synthy" distorted guitar and I think it fits the piece too.

I don't know what the genre is either, but I know this: AMAZING GUITAR SOLO! :mrgreen:

Re: Last song produced on old computer - made with Ardour and Rakarrack

:cry: I've never managed to get a good (semi)distorted sound out of Rakarrack, it always seems to be either too muddy, noisy and/or saturated/loud, I was wondering about this - have you tweaked your oversampling settings? That makes a huge improvement to the overdriven/distorted presets. The default...

Re: Call of the 80s

I really like this, also the 80 ties vid. :) Thanks! The moment I found that looping synthwave background I knew I would have to use it somehow :mrgreen: I was also inspired by some of the videos Night Flight Orchestra do for their songs (like "This Time"), a band that is making amazing 80's rock a...

Re: The Wind and the Lake (classical / symphonic poem)

@Rainmak3r , thanks for the music and the score. I downloaded the score so that I can have a look at it and see how you have done it. You have good reasons to be proud on this one: it is really nice. I wouldn't say that it sounds as if it was played by real people, but it comes close to that. Based...

Re: Last song produced on old computer - made with Ardour and Rakarrack

Not my genre, but quite cool! I'm surprised by how good guitars sound: I've never managed to get a good (semi)distorted sound out of Rakarrack, it always seems to be either too muddy, noisy and/or saturated/loud, which is why I usually only use it for its gorgeous clean sounds and leave anything els...

Re: "The Truth." (all made with Ardour on Linux)

Ciao Stefano, ottimo lavoro! (il numero di italiani in questo forum aumenta :mrgreen: ) So you've started tinkering with Ardour 6 already? Luck you! I'm still waiting for Fedora to update the package... I'm still stuck with 5 (not that I'm complaining, I've learned to love it in the meanwhile). It w...

Re: The Wind and the Lake (classical / symphonic poem)

I naively assumed MuseScore would automatically take care of things like this, but it's actually unreasonable to assume it's up to the tool to let you write things properly: otherwise it would be impossible to write syncopated rhythms, for instance, as the tool would "fix" them for you. Or maybe th...

Re: The Wind and the Lake (classical / symphonic poem)

After searching a bit, I think I know what may be wrong: the notation isn't respecting where the beats are, or isn't making it clear enough. I'll have to do a bit of homework to figure out the proper way to notate this part, though, and possibly apply the same logic to other parts of the score that...
