Thank you for your great effort to put this together! It's a joy to hear, in particular the parts where most live performances lack on clarity and disbalance (also due to some spaces where the performance/recording is)
But! Talking about Straviski... A year ago I stumbled upon a piece of software that could do this for a fraction of the VI price. One small part of Strawinski's Rite of Spring was used to showcase some of the posibilities. Here is a link: http://www.synful.com/Sounds/Synful_Plays_Rite_of_Spring.mp3. Beware, it sounds very cool...
I downloaded the demo and although there was a little tweaking needed to enhance the sound a little (they are currently recording better sounds, but I haven't tried the new demo yet) the results were alarming 😉 "Pricewise" I mean! Approx. 1 tenth of the cost of VI with such results...
Don't get me wrong, I a big fan of your software! It is still the best available. I spread the word on a daily basis 😉 And I'm even planning to buy VI this year (I still have the old version...), but I just wanted to point you to the price versus quality thing, I mentioned before. A pain, really... All the students I teach try, AND some of them even get cracked VI software by WWW peer to peer! For free, but at high risks of course! They all want to have it, that for sure and they know (and not only my students, but really a lot of others too, as you might figure) it is very useful, especially for learning orchestration and such. I mean isn't there a way to get student prices or get this (once again) great software cheaper on the market? It's you or them, I know, but both of you guys miss opportunities here!
In short: Great demo! But I mean different manufacturers are turning over...
First off - As I mentioned on another forum - Jay this is nothing short of brilliant. WELL DONE.
In regards to Synful - the 'sound' (final product) is not even close to the sound quality of Jay's mock up (in terms of performance and final end produced music) - IMHO. Don't get me wrong - I continue to watch their efforts VERY closely.
Now, having said that - my hope is that VSl continues to explore software/sample improvements to allow us 'working stiffs' to emulate even something approaching Jay's wonderful mock-up with much less time required.
Most of the indie films I am involved in allow for 5-7 weeks (for 60-80 mins of music) - writing, orchestration, mixing, etc.... On most projects - I have to hit 2-3 mins/day. I find myself continually making 'compromises' only becuase there is a limited amount of time.
With VE3 - I get a ton more donein the same amount of time - from just a few years ago - but of course I look forward to what the future holds for new VSL developments.
