Hi to all

As you can see there are more than 38'000 clicks to my tutorials. Some of them I wrote in 2004.
Since then I added lots of tutorials and information. Once I tried to separate them (VSL <> VI).
A short while ago I started with a new line "String Arrangements"...
In other words: All these tutorials have become a mixed salad. A beginner who should use
these tutorials didn't got a clear overview any more.
So I've decided to write two new tutorials.

______________________________________________________________________

Tutorial 1 describes the way from a midifile to the music tracks (audio tracks)
for each instrument of the example - played by samples. I decided to write this tutorial removed
from any sample library or any sample player. So this tutorial will help all "sample musicians".
Further I'm going to write these tutorials in html. So everybody will be able to download them
for reading and listening on PC and MAC.
Midi > Sample Tutorial > Overview

Tutorial2describes the way from the audio tracks of tutorial 1 to a final mix.
Step by step I will manage the strings, the woodwinds and the brass instruments.
Also with this tutorial it should be possible to reconstruct all the steps in Logic, Sonar, ...
even if I'm going to use Cubase.
As in tutorial 1 you will get a lot of side information to every step.
Sample > Audio Tutorial > Overview

I hope to finish these two tutorials by the end of august 07

______________________________________________________________________

And...
I have changed my occupation. Writing (also these tutorials) has become part of my income.
So (unfortunately?) you will have to pay 38 Euro for these tutorials (introductory bundle price).
It is near the price of a single lesson given by a professional. But with this tutorials you'll get
as much more information as you would get in that one lesson Wink Hope you understand this necessity.

More information about these tutorials you will get on my homepage soon.

Hi Beat,

It's wonderful that you're taking the time to put together these tutorials and I think everyone should be able to find something useful.

Beat, these tutorials are great stuff!!

I must tell you that your rendition of Bach's E major partita is what got me interested in VSL in the first place. I had never heard sample strings sound so "alive" before.

Thanks for your generous sharing of your knowledge.

Best,
Jay

Beat, don't beat it! Big Smile

Thanks for Your genereousity in taking time sharing Your knowledge. It's a wonderful approach to life and Your fellow human beings - as opposed to clinging on to Your secrets as if Your carreer would depend on that!
Can't wait for Your VSL LONG NOTES TUTORIAL...

One question though reg. Your workflow, if You've got the time:

Do You simply load the different articulations on different midichannels and then cut n' paste to distribute the notes accordingly - or maybe insert keyswitches to have the midi-info gathered on one track in a "ready for score" manner? Or both?
To boil it down; You must have optimized Your workflow pretty much by now. Do You wanna share?

All the best
Sten

Hi styxstyx

I think you will find some answers here

http://www.beat-kaufmann.com/tipspcmusic/index.html#50946996000209f06

You can't wait? I'm working 24 hours and during the night... Unfortunately (for you) I have another main job too. So be patient. It will be a long tutorial with lots of examples and pictures. Cool
