    Adding orchestration to old mixes - (Link is fixed)

    My first posting of mp3s. Here's an example of how I am using GPO on a project for my band, "CrossWalk." Each file is about 3 MB in size. The first link is the original song. The second link is the song with a little help from GPO. Comments?

    Original links were bad, see post below for right one...

    Yeah, bunch of yahoos for sure. Maybe try here, the two songs will be seen in a list, labelled "Before" and "After":

    Freakin awesome dood. Just playing, seriously, I love the way GPO's winds sound integrated into the mix. It really added to the song. Took nothing away, that's for sure. Thank you for sharing this with us!

    The song sounds more complete with the GPO parts. Nice job.

    Yeah, totally different atmosphere. I hope someday to maybe graduate to "composer", I really wear more of a producer/arranger hat. I hoped people would find this interesting. I don't recall seeing anything else demonstrated like this, using GPO more or less as "seasoning" in the context of a full contemporary pop-rock arrangement. I'm finishing up another song which uses a lot more pieces, building and building, winds at the beginning, a little glockenspiel, adds string section in the middle, and ends with some nice big brass fanfare parts on top of it all. Sounds just enormous with the band.

    Thanks for the comments-

    Thanks, Frank! Yes, the guitar is real. That's me playing my old Gibson Sonex. Was on the verge of feedback the whole time. Worked out pretty nice at the end - I was holding a sustained "F" barre chord and I turned to face the amp, which started feeding back into a nice "E", which worked with the C chord where the song was to finally resolve. One of those great unplanned studio moments.
