    Sadly, it had to be realized with the Garage Band default piano sound, since higher-end piano software (Synthogy, NI) will have to wait on a computer upgrade. I'm not going to pretend that the MIDI realization is great, and some things like accelerandos and ritardandos are lost altogether.

    Anyway, it's a miniature suite of five piano pieces. Enjoy!

    Is a bagatelle like a small bagel?

    I like the one at 1:50. Good to see another GarageBand "musician" here, although I don't have the guts to post anything on YT [​IMG]

    No need for the quotes around "musician", plz. [​IMG]

    Well, I just did too, but for different reasons.

    I used to be a big timer when it came to music production. Although, interestingly, none of my outboard sound modules could hold a candle to Garage Band's stock piano sound.

    Nice! It's amazing how expressive Garage Band can be already. The dynamics, attack, and release are more nuanced than I've heard from older MIDI stuff. I can see how tempi might be set in stone, being a computer and all.

    Pretty cool. You should torrent Logic. It's got some decent sounds. It's confusing as fuck though.[​IMG]

    The only thing you need to watch out for are velocity switches. There's a particularly nasty one between v=79 and v=80 on the piano in Garage Band.

    I actually have Logic 4 for OS 9 on my old computer. That's what I did all my d'n'b tracks in. Unfortunately, I'm Dakota Rube-esque when it comes to torrents.
