    Adler: To celebrate a miracle

    Hi all,

    as I always try to improve my rendering chops I am turning to winds and brass now.

    As a study I rendered the first phrase of Samuel Adler's 'To celebrate a miracle'. I did it by ear so maybe it is not exactly the original.

    All GPO plus one line of SAM horns. Although, the main instrument is IIEQ. ;-)

    What I am not too happy about is the time this consumes - 5 hours of work for 30 seconds output. I have to get faster.

    Doing Adler by ear!? Now there's a hat trick, Hannes!

    Sound on this is great, to my ear -- nothing forced,
    well balanced, very clean, superb clarity on it... fine
    realism, I must say.

    I would not mind one bit if you did the whole piece
    (hint).

    Always my best,

    David, my friend,

    thank you for listening and commenting.

    This little snippet may not be spectacular but for me it is exciting. This is because I know how it sounds if I turn off the extras that I added to my process during the last month.

    Here is how it sounds with just modwheeling and nothing else:

    Hannes, it sounds very well to my ears, and I know how much work goes when you want to achieve this level of expressivity!

    Hi Hannes,

    one thing that is for certain: "there is nothing wrong with your ears"

    As lots and lots of sounds (mostly very remarkable good and even excellent) are composed of all sorts of instruments to play just one line (e.g. violins ks with violin solo, with flute.... to get a certain sound) I too noticed that it is an "art" leaving out all unnecessary frivolities and that trying to get that "one ever remarkable...uhuhuhu... sound" just by using the plain instrument as presented in GPO.

    A pity, your fragment is too short
