Description
This is a song I wrote for my then fiance. It is an original piece written in a classical style. I composed on acoustic piano, and play it here live and in realtime using GB's piano sample. Luckily almost all of it fit on the 61 keys I had to work with. Trust me when I tell you this sounds much better on my acoustic grand piano. ;) Please comment! [I am always more interested in comments than votes. Thanks!]

    Wow!
    How I love the sound of piano... even GBs, heheh!
    Great work! I think the part where the synth really
    established itself is with those quick cascading
    scales (I suck at music jargon)... that's the only spot
    where it felt "digital" to me. Of course, being the
    computer geek I am, I would've loved to have heard
    some strings or synths on this, perhaps only for fun,
    y'know? Giving it that kind of Vangelis ambience. But
    it works despite that,.... more of a suggestion than a
    recommendation.

    Wow!
    Actually, I've asked a well-known MacJammer to take a stab at that very thing.
    If it comes to fruition, we will share it with you! Thanks for the great
    comments! (BTW, I agree with you!)

    Wow!
    The piece is definitely a study in arpeggios, a technical device I do well and
    hence use a LOT. LOL

    very beautiful
    This piece is very nice and you've definitely put plenty of emotion into the playing of it. It would sound even better using the Steinway Grand Soundfont that's floating around. If I can find the link for it, I'll post it.

    very beautiful
    I would love that, THANKS! I think if I could get my hands on a good 88 key
    controller too, I could smooth it out just a touch more, as it sounds on my
    real piano. Something about that spongy synth keyboard just isn't conducive
    to natural piano playing... :)

    Here it is... http://www.wstco.com/pianosounds/freesoundfont.htm Once its
    loaded you'll probably want to reduce the reverb in the DLS window.

    I'm going to figure this out (never used soundfonts before), and let you know
    how it works out. Thank you!

    arpeggio-rama
    Beautiful, serene, emotional.
    Calm and soothing. It's almost 5 am and I can't sleep due to a sick 2 yr. old.
    Your song soothed my tired, aching brain.

    very nice classical style
    You get a good sound on the GB piano!

    The general volume level was too low during the first half
    of the song.

    The quick arpeggios in the middle sounded a bit rushed
    and percussive -- let that stuff BREATHE!

    Nice writing in general, great tonalities, rather Chopin-
    esque.

    Great job overall!
