  1. You posted a couple days ago asking about Sibelius users. I use Sibelius, what's up?

    1. Kvothe


      HI Gustav. Thanks for replying to my question about Sibelius.  I truly appericate it.  

      Here's my scenario:
      When using the VST, Sib 7 sound set(not GM), I want to Sibelius to regonize different sythn sounds and effects and play them back. I have tried to use the dictionary, but it seems to work when using GM sounds and not Sib 7. Therefore my question is: Does midi messages only apply to the GM sound set or is there some way they work with Sib 7 sounds, too?

      I've tried things like that before and never been able to get it to work. I also don't have a lot of time to invest in that , so take my results with a grain of salt. I know for sure it's possible to import sound VST sound libraries/etc., but using effects gets trickier. I think there are ways to use external programs (like Guitar Rig) to interact with Sibelius playback, but like I said I've never used them.

      I've done a quick internet search to see if I could figure anything further out, but haven't turned anything up. Next time I have some time with Sibelius I'll take a look and see if I can find anything!

  2. When using either Finale 25 or Sibelius 8, how would I tell the playback to play certain synth effects. For example: Let say I want a keyboard to have a star theme to play back in one section of music, and I want the program to regonize that. How would I notate that and then have it play back it?
  3. HI y'all, Here's my current scenario for everyone out there: I have a Asus Microsoft laptop running windows 10 OS and Finale 25, and I want to know what is the best way I could do create a music score video using a freeware software that allows to download the PGNS files and the .wav file with out cutting it off at the end, for that is what movie maker seems to do. Or how can I use movie maker effectively when do that?
  4. @MeisterSegarra To me this sounds like one of the banderberg concerto by Bach but for concert band and solo saxophone. The harmonic language is spit on with what Bach and his competmaries would have use: simple diatonic harmonic progressions with a strong I-V polarization, and a pinch of chromaticism for flavor. When it comes to thematic material and development, the period structure is well established and themes are clear and easy to hear. The form is not exactly what a modern concerto is, today, but it reflects what was written back then: the main group of instruments start and then the soloist plays after it. Very much like concerto Grassi form. The orchestrations, too, display late barque-early classical setting, expect for concert band. In other words, you adapted a classical form for modern ensemble and it passed with flying colors. Bravo.
  5. @Monarcheon: I have rather enjoyed this prelude. Thematic material with strum like patterns comes out rather nicely. It definitely reminds me of a waltz...
  6. Would this naturally lead into bi/poly tonality?
  7. @bryla It is a miss quote. Your piece is no epic that should be put place store in place where people can hear ages. Schoenberg did not actually say that, but Indiania Jones said always said that about it relics: This should be belong in a museum. Your piece reminded of those movies.
  8. I, too, have a sense that this should belong in a museum ~Schoenberg.
  9. I have title this topic "the strange case of Sergei Prokofiev" because it appears that we can no longer download free scores written by him anymore. Yes. That is right. ISPM seems to be in the battle of wits with Schimer. I ask why this simple question: Should public domain public works, which are no longer in printer, be taken down from sites like that? And what's your take on this current issue?
  10. I was more along the thinking of composer who works with Studio Ghibli films: Joe Hirisahi.
  11. @Austenite: You are welcome. I am glad to cheer you on from the side lines. 🙂
  12. To me, this sounds like an track I would here from an adventure movie. Definitely from a certain Japanese composer...
  13. Yes, indeed. I can clearly hear it his style echo this work. Great job! Emulating styles is the best place to start when you are fresh and new. Later, you will devople your own, and his style might sept back in, but not in full force.
