    "Hup, 2, 3, 4 March"

    It's holiday time for me, so I managed to spend another 5 hours with GPO today. Yippee! This is my day's work today - a march using only GPO.

    "Hup, 2, 3, 4 March"

    Yes, I know, I know - daft title

    Hope someone out there likes it..

    Aw roight! How delightful, old chap! Good show!

    Your intro sounds as though it could accompany a royal occasion at Buckingham palace and then your march takes off smartly.

    I like your music very much because it's certainly not the ordinary I-IV-V-I thing.

    Thanks for posting this.

    My best,

    Jon, this is four aces, all the way! No kidding,
    really fine piece (and I'm not much on march music),
    great orchestration on it, and first-rate rendering.

    I'd have to say that in my ears, this one gets
    best-of-breed for the march music I've heard here.
    Super job on it!

    Jon,

    Very nice march in the British band style....a little Royal Albert Hall concert march going on here Nice fit for the GPO.

    Wonderful piece... The play between instrument sections is great. Like the slight touch of chromaticism within the traditional march. I really enjoyed this... not a big fan of the march. I think this work needs a proper name to support its creative and wonderful construction.

    Well, I like what I heard. Problem is that I only managed to download about 45 seconds of it. What I heard was very good, both the composition and the rendering.

    Jon,

    a superb work. This one makes my day!

    And a very musical rendering also.

    I have some issues with the clippings again although they are not hearable as much as in the piano piece. Actually there are hundreds of them.

    The art is to preserve the power of the mix without overdriving. Compression is not the answer. You can

    - lower the overall volume of the tracks (best option but may lead to a "too silent" mix).
    - make the ff tutti passages slightly thinner by gain riding in the mix
    - make the ff tutti passages slightliy thinner by midi editing.

    Thanks, Hannes - I too can hear the clipped audi now In this piece and in my piano duet I was in a rush, and just hit "audio mixdown". I must try to watch out for clipping in future pieces. I'll re-do the mixdown of this one if I can find time.

    Thanks again - your advice re-clipping audio tracks is most appreciated!!
    Regards
    Jon
