So after your kind suggestions, I bought a midi cable and managed to edit a midi file. It was a thrill to delete a block of data, and move a piano note up and down etc. But no midi editing on this track. What I DID use was REVERB – wow!!! I went all out and chose the “auditorium” preset. Loud and echoey! I like it! I tried Compression too but everything went quiet, so more homework needed. I played a few chords this time, would love to achieve something like a mouth organ effect one day. TQ, Joanna
the sound is much better than the previous version! I love this piece, well done! The rhythmic combination between piano and melodica works well too now!
If I may, each effect plugin should have a “dry” and a “wet” fader: when using a reverb effect, the less is the dry signal, the more the sound steps away from the front. If possibile, I would put more dry signal to the melodica because now it sounds a little bit unfocused. Also, maybe you could raise the piano a little bit too.
Taking Gianluca’s advice and putting reverb and a little “dry” to the piano (same track). Then same amount of reverb with a little more “dry” to the melodica (new track, no mouthpiece). I’ll stop now, before we are all Skylarked out. Thank you everyone. Skylark #3
