    Yet Another Mix of "What Ever" [JABB]

    What Ever

    Formally know as Why Did You Leave Me

    A little Jazz number in a fast 7/8 for Alto Sax and Jazz Trio.

    My latest mix of What Ever is at:

    http://home.earthlink.net/~esharpe/whatever.html

    The score (head) and the previous mix can be found at
    http://www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin...?scoreid=45574

    Next thing to work on is the reverb settings.

    As I said in chat, Ed, coming along great on this.

    Still think that's some of the best percussion work
    I've heard -- and that's one of the very hardest things
    to do effectively.

    My best,

    Take a look into humanizing the the Alto Sax. You can do this by accenting the first note in a phrase and adding in some accidental slurs to create a human sound. Also, look into using Ambience, it will provide a better sound.

    But, either way, it's a well written piece of light jazz. Probably better than what I can write...mine always end up being blues.

    Updated MP3 file of my piece <em>“What Ever”</em> has just been uploaded.

    <a href=http://www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin/show_score.pl?scoreid=45574>For the Score to <em>What Ever</em></a> (you can access the MP3 from there, streaming or down load.

    <a href=http://www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin/show_score.pl?com=streammp3&scoreid=45574 >Streaming MP3 link</a>

    This version has added a bit of reverb to the mix. Over done? under Done?
    The previous version is still available.

    PS: Thank you all for the comments and the help.

    I think maybe a bit too much reverb on that, Ed.

    When the material sounds blurred or indistinct, you know you've gone too far (listen to the basslines, especially).

    As far as "how much" -- the trick is to put on just enough so that you think it sounds as realistic as possible... and then back it off just slightly. Generally that gets it about where it should be.

    Obviously, there are a lot of other factors with the specifics of reverb. I believe there was a good tutorial on this in a forum thread, so you might have a look for that.

    Best,

    Welcome, Ed.

    I'm listening to the latest, and I like this a great deal. Good mix;
    nice light hand on the sound treatment, fine clarity and presence;
    intimate feel to it consistent with the material...

    You're definitely getting the goods, here, Ed. Good work!

    My best,
