Recommended Posts

After listening to all the suggestions I have gone through the mix again.
I think this is to sign of on now.
Been a great exercise and thanks for all the comments.

Yes, I remember the first time I heard/saw this, in a Ballanchine Documentary.

I think you nailed it Gary, tremendous effort. 

I wouldn't over think it. 

Thanks Gary for the post and thankyou Jesse for the Vid ... Really enjoyed this ballet

Thanks for the comments guys.

Next challenge is to make it so it doesn't sound live and closer.
Great way of learning how to use reverb and delay  🙂

Sounds really good on my headphones, Gary. Like you're in the audience and hearing the different sections from where they're placed in the orchestra.

For those who have been following this thread...  
Here is an example of trying to create an orchestral composition with a studio recording feel without the live effects.
EQ is still very hard to do!

Hi Gary , great work here.

The one thing for me is that I'm hearing too much vibrato on the violins, esp #1 ( left) for these quick passages. It's almost like an out of phase effect.

One thing I would try is alternating more between different articulations; legato, marcato & shorts.

(I haven't had my first cup of coffee yet so maybe it's my ears!)

Still nicely done- really enjoyed it.

Thanks for the listen and comments.
Very helpful and I agree too.
When I did this I wasnt thinking of how an orchestra is traditionally panned...  was going to do it my way  (messing around with tradition I know)

I just used marcato on these samples... to be honest I only new what legato meant,  🙂
Its been a learning curve... and Im done with it now.

Will try with the knowledge I have gained on another project later,
Thanks

I know what you mean Gary. It's constant learning & discovery.

As far as panning an orchestra nothing is written in stone although there are useful guidelines. I also sometimes find an imager useful, narrowing certain samples with a wide stage, isolating solo instruments or pushing sections towards the back of the stage.

As for eqing orchestral instruments I usually start with simple HP-LP filters then listen for problematic frequencies (such as a 1-3 khz harshness  strings etc..)

Looking forward to you next projects!
