Song of Lament with Prima vocals

Filed under: classical,Composition,strings,vocals — steve @ 4:36 pm

I decided to try Vocaloid 2 ‘Prima’ and purchased it last night. Tried out some lyrics on the “Song of Lament”. It is a kind of interesting application – couldn’t get it to work as a VST at all [recognised notes but would not output lyrics] – so had to just arrange the lyrics in the Vocaloid application and export as a .wav file into Cubase…

Compare this to the original using the Papelmedia_Irina_Brochin soundfont – ‘chalk and cheese’ really – easy to see who is the ‘prima’ out of these two – and it isn’t the Vocaloid samples…

A rather sorrowful yet at times happy waltz. Not certain whether to take this further or just leave it as it is…

Strings and French horns from Independence 1,5; timpani/percussion from Garritan Personal Orchestra; Choir Aahs from Creative/E-MU sound font; and, Papelmedia_Irina_Brochin.sf2 and Boychoir.sf2 soundfonts…

Strings in D minor

Filed under: classical,Composition,strings — steve @ 4:15 pm

Strange how you can ‘hear’ something in your head and worry that what you are hearing might be someone else’s song – this composition I thought might be The Beatles “Dear Prudence” for a while, however upon entering the notes it took a life of its own… simple repetitive progression from D minor to A. All strings from Independence 1.5…

Chamber music for Celesta, Organ and Strings

Filed under: classical,Composition,piano,strings — steve @ 4:23 pm

A bit more of a descriptive title this time – was going to be called “G7″ but there wasn’t a lot of G7 in the composition… so, it is chamber music containing celesta, organ and full string section. Celesta from Garritan Personal Orchestra, everything else from Independence 1.5…

C-G-Bb-F sequence

Filed under: classical,Composition,strings — steve @ 1:13 pm

Based upon a chordal progression on acoustic guitar I wrote around 1989. Entered it into Cubase and then thought I would try an arpeggiator out in Independence 1.5. The Harp is from Garritan Personal Orchestra and lots of strings from Independence in this version – currently working on a version with full orchestration…
