Here is a chat session in which Karen (Magnatone) implores me (Richard Schletty) to post a mastering I did of an orchestral composition by André van Haren ( www.macjams.com/artist/andreasvanharen )...

André's own early mix is here, for comparison: http://www.macjams.com/song/64488

Lardo: uploading....
Lardo: OK, I will post...with a deep bow to Andre. He won't mind. We email each other 6 times a day, every day!
Lardo: ...except Andre's PPC G5 can't handle Space Designer. It chokes.
Lardo: You can compare my enhancement to his base. He sent me his Logic file. We are nearly compatible with software and libraries
magnatone: - goodnight all
magnatone: i'll look for you POST POST POST POST
magnatone: thanks for the thrilling listen rich!
magnatone: lol - ok, i really have to go now though - i'll bookmark that
Lardo: http://www.macjams.com/song/64488
Lardo: Andre posted an earlier mix of his here --->
magnatone: you don't want that
magnatone: i will hound you till you do!
Lardo: I'll ask André to post it since it is his composition. I was just the sound tech at the dials.
tonestones: I used an old version of Garritan, but I haven't followed it.
Lardo: The Apple Logic and Northern Sounds forums helped us a lot
magnatone: rich - POST THIS >>>>>>
magnatone: lol - is andy still trying to make his iphone work?
Lardo: Speaking of Quantum leap, I bought EWQLSO Gold and was frustrated by it.
magnatone: my family is clapping!!
tonestones: You obviously found enlightenment.
magnatone: man, that's just fabulous rich
Lardo: Thanks. Quantum leap occurred last week. Previously, André and I were slogging through the dark abyss of unknowing
tonestones: It is beautifully done.
magnatone: geez - it's incredible
magnatone: why aren't you POSTING this???
magnatone: i just listened - that is AWESOME rich
tonestones: haha... They sound perfect.
awigze: Aaaaaargh
Lardo: violins still too shrill
awigze: Oh iPhone driving me crazy will check that out Karen thanks. See ghz later
Lardo: Kudos go to André van Haren for writing it.
Lardo: Garritan Personal Orchestra 4 with Logic Studio 8 and Todd AO Impulse Response
tonestones: It sounds live.
tonestones: That is amazing. Great depth, dynamics.
Lardo: "Is it live or MIDI?"

Much more coming down the pike. André has written a lot... and we are finally getting a handle on how to make these virtual MIDI instruments sound real. Just like those Hollywood film scorers! Woot is right! Thanks, Karen.

Very Nice___
I'm not trained in the "Classical" area however I have ears and this sounds great. The composition has emotion and dynamics. Very well recorded.

Enjoyed - Thanks for sharing,

Thank you! We appreciate untrained as well as trained ears. I like the energy (hustle and bustle) in Andre's composition.
