Hi all,
It has been a long time since I posted here, at Demos and Scores thread. After a long interval, I worte a piano piece with Overture 4. While composing it, I felt I'm forgetting how to use Overture. But I was reminded that Overture is the superior tool for composers including amateurs like me.

MP3 https://www.box.com/s/37e36e451b05f4eef9dd
Score https://www.box.com/s/94bc8627604f59b51a03

Almost all processes including audio processing were done by Overture 4. I had some problems in copying & pasting notes, keyswitching, and sending MIDI CC. I have waited for Overture 5 with significantly improved operability.

Outstanding! Constant tension that never relieves itself until the end is a noble goal. For some this is acceptable. However, your ending is disappointing. There is no resolution. While I find fault with this; others may not.

Merv,
Thank you for your listening and feedback. When I worte that piece, I intended to produce rather unexpected eccentricity but might have been in a hurry. More prepared transition could be there before the ending.
Thank you again.

I like your composition. It sounds great & moves straight foreward.
Have you tried to perform it on the piano by yourself?

:o Jovan

That is a big question. The answer is No for now.:lol:

Hi Tatsu my friend,

This is fantastic. Excellent energy and as others have mentioned it just plunges forward with good tension. As Merv said for some the ending would be acceptable - yes I enjoyed the end and felt it did resolve however abrupt it may be :)

May I ask what piano you used?

Thanks for sharing :)

Dean, Thank you.

I used QL Pianos. If I recall, it was the Steinway D close mic position patch, with Ircam Verb session and Softube Tube-tech Channel pulgins. I've just listened to the mp3 file once again and am feeling the sound quality could be better. :lol:

Hey Tatsu,

I think the piano sounds great. I often struggle getting EW's Bosendorfer/Steinway/Bechstein to sound "brighter"...so I wind up going with the Yamaha instead.... but you showcase the Steinway nicely I feel and I can hear the brightness in here.

The high frequency around 10k has been boosted a little bit by Softube Classic channel EQ, and I cut the frequency under 100Hz with Flux Epure II.

BTW, I feel these official demos have been processed more than a bit by high-pass filtering, but I don't feel they sound great. They lack air or atmosphere in low frequency, don't they?

Smart...makes sense and I can hear the positive difference that this makes.

Yes - your ears are keen. As crisp/tight as I find the piano quality to be in the mid-high to high levels at times...it seems almost as if there is no bottom on every single one I listened to. They could really become more powerful and striking with some tweaking of the mid-low to low. :idea:
