Anybody? Anybody at all? It's a short bit. I've listened to quite a few things from other folks and I"m kinda let down that nobody would take a listen.

I never even noticed this topic smile.gif probably posted in a busy day and it fell down the new posts list.

I can't put my finger on it but first thought was maybe more compression to raw track (before mod fx) or the pick thats used is too hard.

I probably posted it in the middle of the night smile.gif Just wanted some fresh ears on it. I"m using a midi guitar and trying to see how much dynamic range I can get out of it, between soft picking and hard picking.

Actually yes smile.gif That's the every rose lick. Good ear! Just testing my midi guitar to see if I can get quiet and loud sounds out of it. Thanks!

I missed this, I haven't read anyone else's comments as I don't want to be influenced.

To me it has a metallic sound to it, like the guitar body is a tin can, obviously nowhere near as bad as a tin can but I hope you get what I'm trying to say. Some of the notes also sound a little bit veiled and muffled.

I hope this helps,

Cheers

Midi guitar ... ah, OK. Useable and resembles a steel string guitar.

In all honesty and pulling no punches, I'm glad it's a midi guitar because if that was real acoustic ... uh uh.

Funny how different minds think; jstcrns was cool, I tried to fix it, Phil66 referenced and klasaine just hated it lol! biggrin.gif

To be fair if it was in a production (drums, vocal...) and wasn't about testing dynamics you could have fooled us smile.gif

Yup, all midi smile.gif

Yup smile.gif In a mix, you really can't tell. It's a 12 string, steel string acoustic sample. It's bright to cut through a mix. By itself, it's pretty easy to tell it's midi. In a mix, it just sounds sorta like a 12 string guitar smile.gif

Are you listening on laptop speakers or ear buds?
