Kind of prog rock, maybe. This is a remix of a piece from 3 years ago. It was fun remixing it since there are so many details, so many ways to process audio tracks.

Love this track! Definitely some Porcupine Tree vibe in it.

Re: Scheherazade

It's nice although I did not hear the connection with progrock. Not that I'm versed in labels and tags though. The piece seems to go by w/o any anchor, it just flows by. Which is not a detrimental quality. I was surprised it ended when I was expecting more development. Thanks for listening! I do ha...

Oh, and yes, of course I want to know what Zynaddsubfx preset you used for the pad.
Fount it! It's the "Ghost Ensemble" preset, in the "Companion" group (120. in my instance).

Re: Scheherazade

Side note, Rainmak3r you should listen to the album Waters of Redemption . That's the guy that created Sonatina, right? I've stumbled upon some tracks of his occasionally, but I didn't listen to this album yet, thanks for the pointer! The Prologue sounded quite interesting, so I do know what I'll l...

Re: Scheherazade

Well, I was a bit of a shutter already so it's not like my lifestyle changed THAT much actually :mrgreen: But it did give me some additional motivation to spend my weekends (since I'm still working from home during the week) to try and something more productive than binge watching yet another serie...

Re: Scheherazade

Very exciting composition, it has a great buildup and nice finale. Your sister did a great job, and I like the way you ended it with the singing crowd. Thanks for your kind words, on behalf of both of us! She'll be glad to hear all these praises on her voice :D I had a middle-eastern phase years ag...

Re: Scheherazade

Whoa, great work on this! Your orchestral + prog rock style is definitely coming together! I find your sister's accent charming, singing those English lyrics. I had no idea that the conclusion was a prerecorded wedding celebration, I totally thought that you arranged it yourself. Oh, and yes, of co...

Re: Scheherazade

Another ambitious work, well-executed. I almost wish I was in quarantine so that I could spend some dedicated time on music. (Not really.) Thanks for listening!

Scheherazade

Hi all, since we're on lockdown in Italy, it did help to have a fun hobby to keep my mind out of things, so I eventually managed to complete one of the tracks I had put on hold for quite some time. This was also an attempt to do another collaboration with my sister, who's locked down somewhere else ...

Re: What is Man

As a fan of prog rock myself, this is a great track! I love the vocals too, is it you singing? If so, you have an amazing voice!

Re: Last Summer

Hi, since you commented on my salsa7, I took the liberty to dig around in your soundcloud account, and pick one piece at random, which was 'Last Summer'. Here's one from my collection that can connect: https://linx.li/softspring.ogg The 'bass' is again the baritone guitar, i.e. tuned down by a 4th....

Re: Come Walk With Me

Nice track! For some reason it reminded me of "Carpet of the sun" by Renaissance, probably the 70's sunny feeling to it :mrgreen:

Re: Salsa sketch in 7/8

Wow I hadn't understood this was a sampled guitar, I was pretty sure it was you playing it! Really cool track, especially since I love 7/4 and 7/8 as tempos.

Working with MuseScore/Virtual Playing Orchestra/Ardour

Hi all, I've recently started working with MuseScore and, while I love it, I've experienced some issues trying to make it part of the workflow I already had partly in place using Ardour and Virtual Playing Orchestra. In a nutshell, the main problem is that each staff in a MuseScore score becomes a s...

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 ...
