You must have fixed your USB dongle for this one ;) Or just hired your local philharmonic orchestra for a quick jam your garage.

thanks! and lol, yeah dongle problems got fixed :-) (Your tweet still makes me laugh!)

(Steinberg support was very helpful getting me first a temporary replacement code and later permanent replacement codes for all my software from them. Makes me a happy customer!)

I love this treatment! You got great string sounds going on — rich, warm perfectly setting off the pells. Mmmmm. Delicious!

Love the string parts, which resonate with formality. A remote feeling is given by the long and dampened reverb. And the juxtaposition at the start with Loveshadow is brilliant.

thanks AB! Since the LS “letter” was so much of an inspiration for this song by snowflake, I just had to have him there, kicking things off …

The resistance of the temptation to add too much to a mix is a hallmark of a good remixer. Here is an example of a Goldilocks moment because this is “just right.” I really liked the pizzicato bits, maybe that’s because I’m the mom of an orchestra member, or maybe because it took the sound out of the realm of synthy strings to something far more authentic. Nice work :-).

Thanks Ms. E! It’s quite a lot more work to compose and perform/program “real” acoustic strings rather than synth strings, because of the variety of articulations involved. However I’m truly grateful for the technology (and the people creating it), that allows this here miserable failure at childhood violin lessons to feel the thrill of playing with great violin (and other orchestral) sounds.
