Re: Orchestra Template Test

Oh, right, I didn't think it might be an issue with sfizz... I'll give it a try with qsampler too, and if it works there I'll contact the sfizz guys. Thanks for the quick answer! (and apologies for misspelling your last name from time to time, I just noticed it's Willis and NOT Wellis as I thought ...

Re: Orchestra Template Test

That said, I suspect some of the -KS scripts are broken That's quite possible. I never tested the KS scripts, as I prefer separate tracks per articulation. The sfizz developers are fairly responsive; try reporting this in their discord channel, or as an issue on GitHub. Be prepared to send an examp...

Re: Orchestra Template Test

Hi Michael, not sure if I should be asking this here, another post, or another place entirely, but I thought I'd add this in response to this discussion as it's motivated by your efforts on the template. I've been working on a few other, more complex, symphonic pieces, and when I tried to follow the...

Thanks for sharing!
A laughter is a good reaction, it was for a humoristic game after all! :lol:
Thanks for listening and glad you liked it!

Re: This is a Scramble

I hadn't heard much of your work up to a few days ago, but I'm really impressed by your sounds! This was a great track too, and now I'm binging the others :lol: (SapereAude is amazing!)

Re: Elegy in B minor for cello and piano (classical)

This is lovely. The cello sound is not bad at all. There is something about it that sounds like a da gamba, maybe the steadiness of the pitch or the way the notes cut off. It's time to start hunting for a live cellist! :mrgreen: Finding one is one thing, convince them to play the piece a different ...

Re: No Fire, No Storm, No Rain

Really cool! Reminds me of the early Porcupine Tree albums, especially in terms of sound.

Re: Elegy in B minor for cello and piano (classical)

I have always thought MuseScore does a good job of rendering audio. And with a robust Platonic filter in place it's not hard to hear the composition through the recording. I agree with others that this is an effective piece. It has emotional impact, and I don't think it sounds cheesy. Thanks, I'm g...

The Serious music, great work! Nice clear melody! It's time to start hunting for a live cellist! :mrgreen: Finding one is one thing, convince them to play the piece a different thing altogether! :lol: Thanks for the kind words on the piece! https://tarisio.com/content/uploads/2018/03/Suggia_portrai...

Re: Wonder World game soundtrack (a blast from the past!)

I like to listen to my old music, even the stuff that I would never share online. The old open-air cassette tape recordings are full of playing errors and half-baked compositions, but also youthful bravado. When I listen to the old stuff I hear the song more than I hear the recording . (I call it l...

Re: Elegy in B minor for cello and piano (classical)

Hi, This sounds great, very well done! I'm very impressed at the sounds coming from the SF2 in MuseScore. I think your composition plays to the strengths of the sounds and doesn't try a lot of stuff that might show their limitations. Thanks! I was also quite surprised by the good quality of their d...

Re: Elegy in B minor for cello and piano (classical)

Have you tried Rosegarden? For all its faults it gets quite a lot right that others don't. I haven't tried with Rosegarden yet, but I'm not sure it would change. I asked on the MuseScore community forum , and about those crescendos/diminuendos they said that "by default MuseScore uses CC2 for these...

Re: Elegy in B minor for cello and piano (classical)

RE: the loss of MIDI data when importing into Ardour, I stumble into that as well. Have you tried loading it into Qtractor? Actually, dynamics weren't the only things missing IIRC, as I noticed some missing notes as well, but I haven't tried with Qtractor or other tools yet. I should first check if...

Re: Elegy in B minor for cello and piano (classical)

Very nice! What soundfonts / sample libraries you used to make it? Thanks! This was exported to audio directly from MuseScore: they support using different soundfonts and even SFZ files (you ca find more info here ), but I kept it simple and just used the soundfont MuseScore comes with out of the b...

Thanks, this is very appreciated! I tried to use dynamics to make it a bit more expressive, and I feel I only half hit the mark, but it's good to know that in part this worked.
