This sounds awesome ! (Bravo, and a very big round of applause).
Which VSL libraries did you use in this piece ?
I also like the way the Harpsichord blends in the arrangement, is this VSL's Harpsichord ?
Thanks for sharing this wonderful Bach re-creation using VSL . Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 BWV 1050, is one of my favourite Bach works.
Hi Musksculp and Servandus,
@Servando : thanks for listening. I had much pleasure to do this piece, happy you like it. We miss you on this forum ... come back quickly !! [;)]
@Musickculp. Thanks for your kind comments. This piece is "full VSl". For strings, i use solo strings and some patches (staccato and legato novib) of Dimension Strings. The harpsichord is VSL too, i send it thru vienna suite exciter to enhance harmonics (set at 490 hz), so it sounds very realistic.
I think this is a great performance of Bach's magnificent music. A joy to listen to. I like the clarity of your mix and the engaged feeling of the instruments. In particular the flute and cembalo. Would you like to carry something to your next production, to my ears, the solo violin can in some places ease slightly on attack .
Thank you for sharing.
Hey great job with midi and articulations!
The sound perspective is pretty good as well. What I find a bit weak are the solo violin long sustain notes: I understand that you maybe keep them flat and non-vibrato to mimic Baroque filologic performance, but in my humble opinon this is not the right sound.
- it's historically false that no vibrato exist in Bach music, the opposite this kind of long notes were almost automatically played vibrato, as recommended by contemporary masters.
- if a long non vibrato note is perfomed by a real baroque violin player, he will keep it really alive with expressions and bows: hard to replicate with samples, but a dynamic and thimbric change (e.g. velocity cross fading, cc11 etc.) may really help a lot.
My 2 cents, delighted by your work and feeling less alone (I'm a fanatic Bach music demo maker as you are...:o)
