  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. @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.
  4. @Monarcheon: I have rather enjoyed this prelude. Thematic material with strum like patterns comes out rather nicely. It definitely reminds me of a waltz...
  5. Would this naturally lead into bi/poly tonality?
  6. @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.
  7. I, too, have a sense that this should belong in a museum ~Schoenberg.
  8. 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?
  9. I was more along the thinking of composer who works with Studio Ghibli films: Joe Hirisahi.
  10. @Austenite: You are welcome. I am glad to cheer you on from the side lines. 🙂
  11. To me, this sounds like an track I would here from an adventure movie. Definitely from a certain Japanese composer...
  12. 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.
  13. For me, it depends on the topic and the teacher. 🙂
  14. I am agree with Monarcheon here, and here's why: En harmonics affect the architectonic relationship that individual harmonies have. Certain harmonies are classified as "Vagrant". Meaning, they have no clear interpretation in music. That is mainly due because of they construction and their function. A German augment 6th can also be used a artificial dominant of the Nepolian region. That is to say it is V/bII6 leading to bII6. That same chord can also function as diminished 7th chord on A, if you lower the Ab to A natural and respell the F# to Gb. Therefore, in the key in the key of e minor, the tone B-flat/A-sharp is not general used in that minor, unless there is a harmony that does use it. Meaning, that tone is not a diatonic tone but would be a chromatic one.
  15. Wow! That's a rather interesting question. I wouldn't exactly know his yearly income.
  16. Augustine, the Russian Composer, Trychiasky, would have been smiled at you for writing this. It definately has his flare of musical tension. This is your "Romeo and Juliet" piece. 🙂
  17. What style were you trying to emulate?
  18. Oh my gosh! This is an epic piece for fantasy film, indeed. There's so much I could delve into, here. But I will just this: it has a lot of potential. I really love it.
  19. I was wondering how to write added values in one measure. For example: If the rythmn in 3/ 4 was 8th 8th quarter 8th 8th. Instead I want to write as 8th, 8h, qurater, 8th 16th, 8th. (in the same meter) how would do that?
  20. Apply the process to change Flute to Piccolo. To add mid-score instrument changes Click the Selection tool . Select the region of the staff that will include the instrument change. Or, to define an instrument change until the end of the piece, select a single measure. See Selecting music. If the selection includes more than one Instrument, Finale will disregard all but the top Instrument. Choose Utilities > Change Instrument. The Change Instrument dialog box appears. If the top staff of your selection is a single-staff Instrument, you will see a list of single-staff Instruments to choose from. If the top staff of your selection is any staff of a multiple-staff Instrument, you will see a list of multiple-staff instruments (piano, harpsichord, etc.). See Change Instrument dialog box. Choose the new instrument from the list and click OK. Finale adds the Instrument change, and also adds a change back to the original Instrument in the measure after the selected region.
  21. Actually, I just figured this out.
