Judy

First things first, I can tell immediatly that the harp really is your instrument. I know the timing was out as it is early days for you but I already feel the passion in your playing. Very very well done!

Agree with Connie about the backing track. The flute was often lost in the midi.

I'm looking forward to flute and harp together soon.

Connie, Adrian, I appreciate any suggestions, but I really can't hear any place that the flute is lost in the midi. The only instrument in the midi playing the melody is 'strings' set on "mp". From my speakers the flute sounds almost too dominant throughout the piece -- especially in the middle where I overlapped two tracks of the flute. Of course, I'm listening with the Windows media player and my laptop speakers. Could be I'm not hearing what you're hearing. Can you point of the approximate spots so I can work on those?

I'm using cheap speakers too, so the flute sounds plenty out front to me. It's just a style thing. It's nice to let the featured instrument carry the melody, with maybe occasional support from a support instrument.

ordinarily I don;t reccomend mixing with headphones but i your case Judy since you are on a laptop you might think about getting a set of good quality USB phones or regular headphones to listen to there to do your mixing with. I have crappy computer speakers but a really good set of phones so I do mixing in the phones. But in my friends 24 track studio we mix thru the monitors with them turned down fairly low.

My thoughts exactly. The same with a worship band in that you rarely want two instrument playing the melody line at the same time and almost never want keyboards doubling the melody. LESS IS MORE!

:-k

Is this one of those 'differences in interpretations' things? I don't play in a praise band ... our church has piano only, plus the choir. Piano carries the melody, choir blends in with a 4-part harmony. I'll take it all under consideration ... thanks! :D

Ed, I've got a set of Koss earphones (more earbuds, not noise-canceling) that cost ~$15. Do you have any particular recommendations of a set or so?

I'm delighted the powers that be on TPE chose "O the deep deep love of Jesus". I have not recorded it but I play it every day now and love it to bits. Great choice!

Kristos has recorded us his version of O the Deep Deep Love of Jesus!


http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... ristos.mp3



Here's what he says:

Quote:
This is performed with a variety of instruments: Lap Harp, Dixon Low D, Burke DBSBT, Brad White Panflute, wooden spoons, and a bean shaker thingy. The storm and water background sounds came from somewhere on the internet. They are Public Domain. Enjoy!

Hey, I like this one. Fun effects and enjoyable to listen to. The end really picks up.

I can't speak for Shadoes, but I don't like mixing with headphones because they're often a bit grumpy, they make all the noise, and they never listen to a word you say. Bad manners. :)

Headphone don;t give a true depiction of sound IN the room. The best way to mix is with a set of good quality room monitors turned to a normal listening volume. Turning it way up or way down will distort your mix as well. BUT if like myself you have a set of ugh..so so computer speakers a good set of headphones is what to mix in. I can mix using just my speakers and then put in my headphones and hear the difference. And if I mix using my headphones in this case it still sounds good in my speakers. However neither compares to when I take the tracks to my friends office and use his really good monitors to do the mix with.

As for recommendations depends on how much you want to spend.

if you are just mixing a couple of instruments its not that big of a deal but if you start getting lots of stuff going on a good set of speakers or headphones is essential for things not to get lost or overbearing.

Sorry took me so long to reply. Ren Fair month been busy. Got shanghai'd into singing with the pirates this year heh.

Kristos, looking back, I didn't ever comment on your version, although I really liked it. I loved the rain and the ambient way you kept the whistle back in the mix. Definitely one for the mp3 player.

Okay so a comment about my other track in the Rise Up thread got me thinking yesterday and I whipped out this. Again I only am mostly pleased with it. Doesn't flow quite as well as I would like

I'm grateful to TPE for learning this beautiful melody. I don't feel i have done it justice yet. I think it is very easy to get in the way of this tune.

I played an Overton F.

Adrian, that's stunning.



As soon as I can put it into words, I'll give you more articulate feedback. So well done.

Adrian,

Very nicely done. This is for me music that serves as a thoughtful meditation on the passion. Thanks.
