Special Edition arrived yesterday and I have done a first try with string trio (Vln, Vla, Vcl.).

I just improvised "live" around in Cubase (no edits done) with those 3 solo instruments and checked out the articultions and the handling of VI (turned out a kind of mix between Schostakowitsch, Webern or Bartok).

I really love it! The Special Edition is really fantastic! I don't have a real favourite instrument yet 'cause they are all so beautiful and natural.

Had no time yet to set up a full orchestra.

Have fun with my short MP3,

Andie

Now I had some time to set up a full orchestra in Cubase und I orchestrated an old, simple piano piece that I wrote at university (in style of Satie).

I played every single instrument "live" so it might sound not perfect edited but I just wanted to test the entire orchestra of SE for the first time.

Makes really fun to work with SE as it's so comfortable and handy to use !!! Damn it - VSL you have made a master piece once again !!! You guys are genius! :-)

I'm glad to get receive some feedback and curious to read your posts...

sincerly,

Andie

Congratulations, i really enjoyed your 2 pieces, and as i'm waiting for my SE to arrive, listening to this fine music is very nice. I like the impressionistic vibe on your 2nd piece, the doublings and using of voicings in 4ths (i think... my ear is kinda tired at this moment..busy day LOL) for some of the Woodwind passages, very very nice. The Brass instruments also sound great, with some fine tunning (on the programmin) this could sound even better. Congrats.

Thanks for the nice comment.

You will really enjoy SE, believe me. For me it was always important to play the instruments live into the sequencer but with other libraries that sounds sometimes so unrealistic and needs afterwards a lot of editing and time that kills the motivation and workflow in my opinion. With VSL it makes simply fun to compose and experiment.

About the second piece: The voicing of the melody is a mixture of 6th chords (faux bourdon), typical technique for that time (Debussy, Ravel, etc.).

But I "orchestrated" only in Cubase, so only by using the samples. This approach gives me a little bit the feeling of "having not everything under control", as if I'm orchestrating/composing usually on score paper (or notation software) where I can see also with my eyes if it is done good or not so much. The ears sometimes "lie", the eyes always tell the truth! :-)

But never the less the auditive result is of course the most important.

All the best,

Even if i'm a "pop" musician (that's without a classical training, but i studied popular music in a university here in chile) i also wrote down almost everything that i compose or arrange, specially things for orchestra, i was a Finale user but now i'm switching to Sibelius 5 on the mac. As i'm not a pianist (i only use it to arrange and compose, but certainly i'm not a pro pianist) i prefer to work my sequences directly into the midi editor, that gives me a lot of control over it i think... i'm looking forward to get my SE, then i'll post some music here.

All the best.
