I would just add to the list:
John Powell – how to train your dragon soundtrack is awesome
Elmer Bernstein – magnificent seven
e.s. posthumus – awesome music (used in films), if you didn’t hear this, you missed a lot
nicola piovani – la vita e bella soundtrack
Great, thank you I’ve been reading through your site, and I especially like the “local transfer” service.
The Payoneer card and Local Bank Transfer are two separate payment solutions provided by Payoneer. If you choose to receive payments to your Payoneer card, you will be unable to transfer your card balance to a bank account.
Once you make a choice, is it possible to change your subscription, for example switch from “receiving payments to a card” to “bank transfer”?
Thanks everyone! I’ll try all that
JonBuice saidI’ve considered that, but they would drop below loudest velocity range, and that range has its specific color that I want to keep.
Have you tried just lowing the velocities of some of the really loud notes? Or does that take away from the dynamics too much..
If it’s just a solo piano, I would automate the volume to balance everything out. It will sound better than trying to squash your track somewhere around 12db to even it out. You could automate volume through the track or use midi cc11 (expression) to smooth things out. CC11 would be the cleanest choice since that will affect the piano sample only and not effects or sends you might be using on the track (like reverb).
But if don’t want to do that and you did ask for suggestions, you could use a compressor and an upwards expander to get gentler dynamic processing. Use the compressor to address the loud sections (maybe around -3 to -4 in gain reduction) and the expander for the soft parts (maybe +3 to +4 in gain makeup). You would then have 6-8db less in dynamic range. However, you might hear those effects working so you’ll need to dial in the settings on them to have them perform well.Basically both options are doing the same thing so it’s a question of do you want a plugin to do it or do it yourself? I think you’ll make more ‘musical’ adjustments over a plugin.
expression automation is an excellent idea, definitely better that volume, especially because there is a long hall reverb that will cover things up, thanks
