    This is a realization of Georg Philipp Telemann's Canonic Sonata No. 1 using Solo Violin 1 & 2.

  • Hi Leslie,

    very well done, enjoyed listening to it! Thanks for sharing.

    I would like to know, did you use any other post-procesing besides reverb and which reverb did you use?

    Best, Ben

    Hi Ben, thanks for your comment.

    There's not much post-processing going on. Violin 1 is panned slightly to the left and Violin 2 is panned slightly to the right. The reverb is VI-Pro's built-in algorithmic reverb. There's nothing beyond that, no eq, compression, etc.

    I did do a lot of MIDI editing of velocity and note lengths.


  • That's impressive! Thank you for the insight.

  • That sounds great, the interplay between the violins is very distinct and the legato after the crisp attacks very natural.  


  •  

    Very nice phrasing, pretty convincing. I think this is the music style the library is more effective on (a bit less with expressive/romantic style), and you managed it pretty well.


  • This brings me out of lurking-mode! Sounds like the articulations are well-done, imo! We recorder players are so fortunate that our instrument is one of the several Telemann was proficient on, and a master at writing for! ...This is standard repertoire for recorder players. We take more advantage of agogic accent (“time taking”), and, subtlety of articulation is a real shining point when performed well. Unless treating it strictly as a pedagogical exercise, maybe try adding some dynamics & maybe tweak/ elasticize the tempo once or twice (?) Would you please share how many hours it took for you to program/ implement the editing?

  • Wow! Nice job. I can't agree more to what's been already said but, overall, a fun and lively recording that sounds so natural.

    I'm not sure. There's the tedious part of entering the notes into Finale. But the real work is done once I've imported the MIDI data into Reaper and begin tweaking it and assigning articulations. I would say six hours or so. I made extensive use of Sequence maps, which sped up the process and encouraged experimentation until I found the right articulation for each note.


  • Beautiful, and incredibly realistic!
