    Balter Adam final
    on February 26, 2012 22:43

    Hi Adam,
    Good improvement from the rough draft, I see you changed the tempo and pitch shifted your bass line. These adjustments really make a difference to the final piece!
    So well done on those sir! The one thing that I noticed is that the bass patch you choose has a clicking sound on it occasionally, that was a little distracting but all in all a good improvement!
    Well-done Adam and good luck in future classes.
    All the best.

    Hi Diana,
    I much prefer this version, well done! The instrumentation is better and I like what you did with the bass sound. I also noticed your dynamic changes too.
    In the rough version I liked the sound and level of the melody and I feel as though it gets a little lost in this mix and really that’s about all I can say in a negative way!
    So well done for your final piece and good luck!
    I hope we get the chance to work together again in the future!
    All the best.

    Hi Joyce,
    Good work, I think you have done a great job with the final, much improvement from the rough, with the changes you made in your bass sound/instrumentation!
    I hear the dynamic changes as well! I would say maybe you dropped the level of the piano just a little too much from around 0.48, there are section where you could have brought it out a little more in the mix, I wanted to hear it more! That’s the only advice I would offer and this is something you will get better and better at the more you mix!
    Again great job Joyce and I hope we get to work together in future classes.

    Parra Ever final version
    on February 26, 2012 21:50

    Hi Ever,
    The changes you made in your score/piece are so much better sir. I like the choice of your instrumentation this time and also your placement of sounds, it feels better and bigger!
    Where you made your changes in the score work so much better too, the NCT's sit so much better in this version. I also noticed your dynamic changes as well.
    If I could offer some advice, in future try using a more punchy bass sound and try getting used to dynamic processing like compression etc.
    Good job well done sir, much improvement over the rough draft.
    See in you in class Ever!
    All the best.

    Hi Adam, Would just like to say well done, this was a tough one! I know we all worked hard on this so congrats for getting through sir!
    To answer your questions i would like to say i think that the horn sound works well within the context of the piece! I know the score said sop sax so maybe that is voiced a little higher! I think the problem with the bass is that its an octave too low, did you pitch it up +12 semitones within the instrument? If you had, you may have heard more of the work you put in there. I would like to also mention that pro-tools default tempo is 120 bpm and this piece was scored at 100, maybe you choose to do so?
    After looking at your sib.pdf i noticed you never used any dynamic markings, for your final i would recommend you try some cresc/dim hairpins and maybe some changes from mf to f and also some simple p to f etc etc.
    Again Adam well done and good luck in future classes!

    CampoDiana MP3 Rough Draft Final Project

    Hi Diana, First off i want to say well done, this was a fairly challenging piece to work on and i think you did very well.
    I think the flow of the song works for me, really enjoyed the opening of the melody line.
    In bars 38-42 we were ask for something fairly long and simple and i think what you used works well there!
    I would like to have seen you using some dynamics throughout this piece, a lil cresc hairpin and dim hairpins used a few changes in mf, pf, f p etc this would have added to it as well, the one other thing really and maybe this was a more artistic approach but i feel as though there is too much reverb in the mix and i think you use a delay in their too, i noticed it on the rest in bar 3, not sure that works well, if there is reverb on the bass, take it off and try it dry the next time, add a little compression to it, beef it up! Overall it sounds good love the sound and placement of the sop sax piece, all floating around.

    Hi Joyce. Good job, I too agree with Mack in his opening comment, well done!
    I think bar 17 is the weaker one the rest are fine, maybe trying dropping a few notes, also your notes are in key during that section they are chord tones!! Your melody in bars 38- 42 are in key, they are all chord tones! Think it just needs a little variation, i know it said to try and make it simple and long but maybe just mix it up a little!
    The only thing i would say is try more dynamics by using say cresc and dim hairpins and maybe switch between say mf to f and maybe mp to P etc etc, thats it really, well done again i enjoyed your piece!

    Hi Ever, Good work i enjoyed what you have added to this piece!
    I looked at your Sib.pdf file and you added very few dynamics, you should try using the hairpins for cresc and dim and using the symbols F,P,mf,mp etc,if your not sure then look at one of the Sib videos that were posted, shows you what you need to know to make those changes!
    By changing the arrangement you mean to actually change the way its written, not sure we are allowed to do that or not, I would work with what you have and just fine tune your own arrangement's in this piece.
    The one thing for me that really stands out is the bass line, it sounds as though you never pitched it up one octave(+12) on your instrument after the protools import! If i could offer one more piece of advice, trying panning the melody instrument back to the center and put a great stereo reverb on it, that will give it some width, also if the piano part is a stereo instrument track you will get nice width again add a good stereo reverb but something different to the melody reverb.
    Again well done Ever.
    Good luck
    Gordon McMillan
