Topic: JABB has arrived!

    Smile JABB has arrived!

    I tried to re-render my old tune in jazz quintet format with JABB.

    Though some tweaking was necessary, my original MIDI file for Roland SC-88 sounds very fine with JABB. This is a really great library, sounds nice and easy to use.

    If you are interested in, please try "Turbulence-JABB version" below:

    Great stuff! Bring the sax level up, though (or the trumpet down).

    I'm also not too convinced by the halting staccato in the sax solo starting at 2:35. Just doesn't seem like a natural phrasing to me (though I'm sure some player has excelled at it!). Gets a lot better when it gets to the long tones around 3:50.

    And that's one smokin' rhythm section!

    Thank you very much for your practical suggestions. I will certainly try the balancing and sax phrase editing. I will upload revised version when finished.

    Thanks Jun. This hard drive hasn't the room for another download. I'll have to wait till I get home.
    Judging on your previous demos I am sure this will be awesome!

    Fine job on this Jun. Love the piece, a lot of really cool trumpet writing in this... very well done.

    Jun, the one thing I might perhaps pay a little more attention to is relative balance amongst the instruments in some places. I think you might achieve a sound that's fuller, for instance, if the trumpet were brought back a little, and (especially in the soli) if the piano were brought forward somewhat. That whipping bass part might also be pulled to the front a bit at times, and likewise the percussion's soli.

    As always, though -- I must comment that that is my personal taste, which tends more toward emphasis on ensemble.

    I really enjoyed listening to this! Several times, in fact!

    Re: JABB has arrived!

    Jun this is really cool! Love the drum work, especially. I think you can definitely get some more expression out the horns. With just a couple pauses for a breath, and a little vibrato, that line at the end will really come to life.
