Today's rehearsal went well. We had a few absences, but we were able to get a fairly decent recording of Being for the benefit of Mr. Kite together. I like the timbre of the guitar synth, we just have to control it- it's not easy to play, and it's not an easy part. On this recording, the long notes that end the chromatic runs didn't come out, but the balance was good.
I would like to improve the intonation of the clarinet section on the short notes, smooth out the tenor sax sound and bring up the volume of the horn and trombone to match the trumpets. Finally, I'm still hearing a B flat and a C natural in the second measure of the intro in the flute section.
At the second ending (where the guitar synth plays), I'd like to not have the keyboard sounds play. Let's wait till after the guitar synth has played the line.
here's the file:
