    Trumpet soundcheck (short)

    Hi,

    I am in the process of polishing my brass writing and rendering.

    Would you consider this snippet as "real"? And if not, where exactly?

    EDIT
    Second version

    Third version

    Thank you

    After listening to other music I returned and made a new version. It is amazing how the ear adjusts after a while, so maybe one should always listen to other sounds inbetween.

    Any opinions? Whether you like it or not, don't be contained.

    I'm sorry but it doesn't sound anything like a real trumpet. The first few seconds is similar to an oboe with a superimposed alto sax.

    It needs work. Just my two cents worth. (How much is that in pfennigs?)

    Regards,

    Hi Larry,

    your comment is very much appreciated since hearing is so subjective and I need a different audial perspective sometimes. I am trying to rework it but it is not easy. It is a question of varying the tone without making it too unstable and therefore too "untrompetish" .

    We have cents nowadays, too. It is modernish to speak Denglish now

    I have added a new version now. And I think it is better.

    Good enough ... ? What do you think?

    Hannes,

    Go to my website at http://www.alexandermusic.com and listen to my "Trumpet Concerto #01" movement III. That's a trumpet. Well, actually it's a sampled trumpet but it's as realistic as I am personally able to make it.

    As I have been explaining for years on this forum, professional players can breathe at the end of a musical phrase by "stealing" a small bit of the value of the note at the end of the phrase in which the breath is taken.

    Let me repeat. Professional players can breathe at the end of a musical phrase...

    Yes, we can steal a breath at the end of phrases. But I think the point that people try to make on this forum is that if you want your performances to sound more real, it needs to reflect this. Thus, the ends of your musical phrases should have short breaks in sound, because it would be audible in the real performance.
