    New Gofriller Solo Cello demo

    This is the second half of the second movement of...
    Clara Schumann's Piano Concerto in A Minor

    I would like to thank Giorgio for such an amazingly expressive solo instrument! Gary Garritan's work with Giorgio Tommasini and the "Sonic Morphing" technology is superb!

    I would also like to thank Jerry Wickham for creating the basic piano midi track. HOLY COW he did this in a few hours with finale. I say it was a basic midi file of the piano score because all I needed was the notes.
    He emailed me the midi file, then I imported it into Digital Performer 5.1 and created a tempo track that would allow me to input the roboto to match the cello track that I had already created, as well as editing the notes and chords to sound as though it were played by a human.
    I needed this piano midi file quick, and Jerry came through like a bandit! THANK YOU JERRY!

    Finally, I want to thank Gary Garritan and his wife Marianne for the kindness they have shown me and all of us here on Northern Sounds.
    I used the Garritan Jazz & Big Band Steinway Grand Piano for this demo,
    and one instance of Altiverb 5 reverb.
    Enjoy!

    Fantastic! A little sounds metalic but it is very difficult to distinguish it from concert performances.

    I wish Strad and Gofriller are easy to use. I am now planning a *classical* piano trio and it can be performed if violin and violloncello are available on my desktop...

    I agree. The aim to reach a certain degree of pathos is remarkable, though.

    Solo strings are an ugly beast to be rendered in a sequencer (I'm not very fond of VSL Solo Strings demos, to be honest).

    I was always told if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all...

    I enjoyed the expressiveness of the performance.

    Best,

    I think this is quite good....not meaning to say that it is convincing.

    I agree with the timbre comments: It seems to be missing some low mids (300-ish)if I'm hearing/guessing right. It's a funny tone. Don't know if it's the mic-ing, the instrument, the postpro...

    The other thing is the vibrato. Always the vibrato. How many different vibratos are sampled/programmed into this patch, and how many velocity layers? If there are more to spare, you could use them to make everything sound a little more human. IF the morphing is as effective here as its seems to have been with the Strad, then there should be little practical limitations on the expressiveness one can use.

    This sounds more like a cello to me than a lot of other things. Nice work Giogio, Gary and Dan.
