I thought you might like to hear a recording I made last night on Gary's new Steinway - it is an arrangement of "More Love to Thee" by Carol Tornquist

Please share your thoughts on how I might improve it with better EQ, Compression, etc.,

Thanks so much!

Great piece. Once in a while I hear some distortion or strange sound like a little high-tuned rasping. A sort of a hiss (high resonance of an object in the room - not possible because it is a sampled thing, but nevertheless......

Lovely arrangement of this, Richard, beautifully done!

You asked for suggestions; and, well, of course, I do

Thanks so much for the nice words and encouragement. I too, however, heard the distortion, and just for your information found that it was due to the sustain resonance and sympathetic resonance settings in the Steinway. Once I turned off both settings, copied my midi file into a new Sonar file, then refroze the synth, I believe I got rid of distortion. Please take a listen again,

Hi Richard,
now it isn't there anymore and once again I loved this piece. And for the rest, as etLux told you, don''t touch it.

Thanks again, everyone, for your kind words. Isn't the new Steinway great? I have so much to learn about all the perspectives and new controls in Aria, as well as mixing and mastering in Sonar, but I certainly have enjoyed playing this new sample!
