    Symphony No. 1 (Mvt. 1- Largo Misterioso)

    OK ya'll, here's my official second piece with GPO. I really didn't know what else to call it, so I might as well make it a first movement of a symphony since I do have ideas for other movements as well. I've already worked on the second movement a bit, so yeah.

    Alright, I'm still kind of new to GPO, though I'm really having a blast with it. Slowly progressing... (At least I hope I am) So, once again, please feel free to make any comments and/or suggestions, if needed. Just try not say anything harsh, or anything that would make me... cry or whatnot.

    Note: Revisions will be likely, but probably not until I get more RAM. It took a while to record it without it making any crackles <_<. I might make a better ending while I'm at it too =P)

    Er, another note: Um, it's quite long as well, so...

    Thumbs up Re: Symphony No. 1 (Mvt. 1- Largo Misterioso)

    Nice crescendo in the beginning. Amazing how some of you can work woodwinds to sound so alive! This is a excellent piece and perfectly titled! Cool!
    Excellent use of timpani!

    Great sounds!! This sounds mysterious indeed. Very interesting techniques. I'm not sure if they're all possible, but it makes for very entertaining listening. I can imagine this as a sound track for a film.

    I enjoyed this very much .

    Kind Regards

    Thanks for the comments ya'll

    I tried not to make the woodwind so tediously complex but, heh, I have such influences on 20th century works. Glad you all liked it!

    (It's my birthday today as well =P. I got a lot of cash, so... who knows? )

    Excellent piece, Cata. The mix is top notch too. A great deal of this reminds me of Varese with an Asian flavor. The conclusion was impressive.
    Well done.

    Heh, wow, Varese? Makes me feel special... But I can see the Asian flavor though. And it makes me happy that you liked the ending as well.

    Thanks for your comment!

    Whew, a lot of bass . . . I imagine if I had a subwoofer I'd be blown away

    As someone said, I could imagine this as a movie soundtrack as well!

    What a glorious crescendos! What fun woodwind writing! What nice string orchestrating!

    Just curious, what sequencer did you use? Great mixing! I also really like the reverb you used.

    Nice work.

    Heh, didn't use a sequencer actually. Only used GPO, a notation program (Sibelius), and the ambience in GPO studio. I don't have a DAW/sequencer in my hands yet, though I might consider Cubase... Not quite sure, but more RAM is my priority right now... Maybe Symphony of Voices as well (extremely expensive though... I know someone who has it. It's quite amazing...)

    Thanks for listening and commenting! (yes, it is a lot of bass! I'm sure the subwoofer would make things interesting )

    LOL. When I first started to listen, I didn't know my Mega Bass was on. Whoa. My head was beginning to hurt. I clicked it off and everything sounded great.
