Harmonic Exercise : Blah, Blah, Blah



 Genre: Experimental

Get Flash to see this player.

An Alchemy pad (by Dr.TW) and an Alchemy trombone, accompany - or are accompanied - by a Boldt choir in a little harmony exercise of real simplicity. Written in the fall of '13 I thought it turned out ok. See what you think.

Harmonic Exercise
Alchemy is another thing I must get around to playing with... Interesting sounds you've used and I can imagine multiple ways of using them. Thanks for suggesting new possibilities!

Thanks Philip
Alchemy is a very sophisticated piece of software which I don't use as well as it could be used, but I like to experiment. I don't think you can but it separately now that Apple purchased Camel Audio and bundled Alchemy with Logic.
Glad you got a little something from this. Cheers.

Nice work
I love the Alchemy synth! You've put it to good use here. The Boldt choir I'm not so sure about, to be honest. The sound is sort of in between a real and synthetic choir [which is what it is I suppose!] but I think it sounds like neither. I might have been tempted to use some of the vocal stuff within the Alchemy myself. There are some included in the basic deal, but I've also got the 'Dream Voices' extension pack, which are very nice.

But it sounds really good though. You can't go wrong with the Alchemy!

Hi Dave
I love Alchemy too, but I thought the Boldt Choir sounded ok. I thought I got the pauses for breathing right, and staggered the MIDI note beginning and endings to add a little human imperfection. However, I'm prepared to admit that my ears are old and my brain is increasingly mushy, so if you and Neil (with younger ears) think it's off, who am I to argue?
I did think about purchasing the Dream Voices pack but didn't and (I think) it's too late now.

Like Dave ..................
.............. I'm not a big fan of the Boldt choir - in fact I don't think I've heard any synth vocals that I'm happy with. I really like the other sounds and will investigate Alchemy some more. Had a look at it a year or so ago and liked it but then forgot about it :(
Anyway, a nicely put together piece which I enjoyed.

Thank you Neil
See my comment to Davajonah about the choir. I'm happy the rest sounds good.
I'm not sure about the Alchemy situation now it's a part of Logic: I don't know if it's available separately, or if it can be added to an Alchemy-less version of Logic. I should look into the expansion pack availability as well, although I must say that auditioning sounds can be time consuming.
Cheers from the Great White North ;-)

What's past is prologue 23 September 2016 Howdy! After an absence of two years at MacJams I'm back and making some noise. I haven't been totally absent but my interest in music was practically nada. My wife Anne died last year after a... [see more]
