orchestra to accompany salamander

• Oct 22, 2018 - 14:05

I've set up the Salamander piano in Zerberus and I like the tone - a very sophisticated sound. However when I put the fluidR3 strings with it, it doesn't blend. I tried setting the low pass filter to 3000 Hz but it's still not right. Any suggestions ?


For better output, DAW is the only solution.

I use MS 1.x era till up-to-day MS 2.x as notation purposes,
export mscz to midi. Then edit the midi in DAW no matter pc or mac.

Simply way - Just export the mscz file to WAV format, separated tracks,
then import those WAV files to DAW, the DAW built-in effect like EQ, Reverb, Limiter,
volume / pan automation provides very good quality output.

Furthermore, some good VST-Effect are FREE.

Besides notating with Musescore,
I'am using Reaper PC/Mac, not too pricey indeed, and Garageband also.

You may compare those.

BWV 1041, Mvt-1, 96bpm

Origianl MS2 Mscz file

Midi Exported by MS2

Wav Exported by MS2

[Reaper + Kontakt Exported Files]
Master Output - without volume / pan adjustment.

Separated tracks

Apart from Reaper, Audacity Freeware - Good enough and easy-to-use audio editing tools.

Thanks. I have tried LMMS which is free, I think that is similar to the DAW software you mentioned ? But I was hoping to get the correct sounds straight out of Musescore because then I can hear the music as I write it. A bit like what-you-see-is-what-get in a word processor. I have Polyphone for editing a soundfont and I tried using its graphic equalizer to change the samples of the fluidR3 'Strings' voice. It works, but I don't think the quality of the samples is as good as Salamander. For example you have 16 velocity layers in Salamander and basically only one in fluidR3.

Was tried the LMMS, but some midi files converted FAR-FROM-THE-ORIGINAL which exported by MS2
Also LMMS haven't updated long long long long time.

More reference.

One of my student joined the in-school orchestra first ever,
But don't know why her teacher only take Canon in D - Violin III as the single piece.

Anyway, I made a fake-orchestra, for her playing alone.
