I’m new to this forum but thought I’d share what I’ve been up to
Before the pandemic I had recorded a number of different amateur orchestra concerts I was involved in and, at the time, knocked out a quick rendition of them for the players and didn’t think much more about a lot of them. The last few I had recorded directly to Ardour but before that I’d been working in Cubase.
Recently I’ve started revisiting these recordings and actually got the hang of Ardour in a bit more detail and imported some of the older Cubase made recordings in to it as well for further work. The main thing preventing that before was Cubase has a really nice convolution reverb with some great concert halls available but I’ve since worked out how to do the same thing in Ardour
So, anyway, I thought I’d share some of these recordings. I’m not entirely sure about how the rights work for these recordings, they are of amateur orchestras (with some professional players) playing repertoire which is public domain but anyway, here is the first one:
I originally uploaded the 3rd movement as well but Soundcloud immediately sent me an email saying they’ve removed it and claiming that it was, in fact, the Berlin Philharmonic and Herbert von Karajan’s recording of the same piece. Which is very silly as he’s been dead for 30 years already and you can clearly here it is NOT the Berlin Philharmonic just by listening to the intonation
Happy to go in to the details if anyone’s interested…
