  • staccato oboe

    Hello,

    I am using the staccato oboe of the Symphonic Cube in an orchestral piece. I notice that the attack differs every second note which gives the oboe part a nice rhythmical sense. Now I wonder how to notate this difference. Should I notate above the notes ta - ka, or ta - tu (and then simile after one measure)or something like that. I don 't want the oboeist to play ta -ta - ta - ta etc. because this will not have the rhythmical effect that I intend.

    Greetings,

    Gerard Beljon

    Hello Gerard
    Combine different samples. For example:
    sfz stac stac stac
    or
    detache short stac stac stac
    or
    ...
    Here you will find some tricks around the use of short notes (with sound examples):

  • Beat didn't exactly get the question... [[;)]]

    Gerard, I think you`re on a good track. I wouldn't use different vowels though. I don't think that makes a meaningful difference. I would go for ta - ka.

  • Thanks!
