Here's a video I recently made a video from  original music made in my DAW. I usually don't use this DAW, but since it outputs to sheet music I decided to use it. 

I am linking two videos. First the "official" and video that shows snow scenes and a second "unofficial" and "unlisted" video that  shows the DAW work screen video in the background for those of you who are into that kind of thing.

I have links to the sheet music if anyone is interested and an xml file. All parts are played in as tracks in the DAW. Very little editing...one place where a note went south was changed in the midi.

nice job Tim!  I really liked the piano playing.  The opening of the top video with the lighthouse was spectacular.  Looked like something around Vancouver or Maine.  I think Ive seen 1 in TN at a camping area on Kentucky lake..:) 

I think you're due the composer badge for this especially with the sheet music available!

I'm a fan of presonus but ive never used anything else so not sure how great it is.  its easy to work in for what little I do.  how do you like it?

Thank you GregW. I really like Studio One and have gone back and forth between it and a few others. 

I like the fact that it can output sheet music through Notion. I asked a question over on the SO forum about why some of the notes seemed too low on the notation or it somehow added notes way low to the existing notes. So far no answer from anyone . I'm sure it's probably something I'm not doing correctly.

My main niggle is the different hot keys. In Cakewalk W rewinds to the beginning. SO4 rewinds with SHIFT + B...just little stuff like that I'm not accustomed to. Sends seem more difficult than Cakewalk. They all have their little things that are different and I guess I'm still learning some of that. Really wasn't very difficult to set this up. Honestly the most time consuming is making sure the mix is ok, then mating it with the video in another program plus sharing it on Social media here and there. That took more time than actually making the music 🙂

Studio One has a lot going for it with supported hardware. The interface is smooth and siome of it is very similar to Cakewalk......Ableton though, that's a different animal altogether lol.

Thanks,

so a couple of steps to get notes sent from presonus onto a grand staff.  

 

https://forums.presonus.com/vi.....ff#p158618

go into file preferences  Yeah I know..here we go lol

go to the midi import tab and check the use sequencer staves.  uncheck use grand staff for now.

then go into the score setup and change to grand staff.

ROFL..I'm not kidding this works

now go to the tools and select convert to notation

its overly complicated there..Im not sure why a bug not fixed yet maybe.  I'll try and find the link to how to do this and post it here.  but thats basically the steps.

Great job!  I enjoyed that a lot!

Very nice composition, playing and production.

It is always neat to see what other people are using also.

Thank you Mark! 

Many thanks Greg for the fix to that issue. I'm going to copy the text from your message! Don't get me wrong, It's generally one of the best of the best programs to work in as compared to just about anything else in my opinion.

 

Thank you Sasha for checking it out and for your comments.........now it's on to the next thing. There are pre made tracks for Suzuki but I've been making my own. When I get the few I have finished I'll post a download link for an mp3 to it if you're interested. So far I have Chorus from Judas Maccabeus and Minuet 2. Just need to mix those down and export.

Haha, I am just mixing down a track for Suzuki myself, and should be posting the video and also making the backing track available tonight.

 

I plan to do a number of different 'styles' with some of the Suzuki songs.

GREAT!!thumbs-up

 

Maybe we can trade them back and forth. I find they help me to keep in tempo and follow better than just playing by myself.

I am certainly open for trading.   Whether you will enjoy what I am doing with them, on the other hand....

Interesting. I to see different ways of doing something. The only Suzuki thing I made so far was Gavotte In G minor by JS Bach. It's in Suzuki 3 I think. I have direct downloads enabled in case anyone want to practice with it. 

Greg, Can't wait to hear it. I attempted to do something like that but sat down and quickly became involved in system updates and getting my software all updated for 2020...and going to Fiddlerman forum violinviolin Fiddles and people who like to play them. What's not to like! smile

haha..yeah distractions!  like making backing tracks !   or the 60% end of year vst or plugins sales. facepalm  a lot of the time the track construction will be away from the instruments though.  I'll export the melody and tempo from notion and start building up a tune to play with when I can play.

Nice work Tim @starise I like it !

Since we last chatted via PM I've had a look at Cakewalk and got my hands on it.  It has moved on a lot from what I had years back.    I'm currently comparing it against LMMS which I have had for a while, although I've never really used it in anger yet.  Sounds like it's time for some DAW work here too ! LOL

You mentioned you could make the .xml available - I wouldn't say no to that !  Much appreciated !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Thank you Pierre and Billy.....and my apologies for taking so long to respond back. 

BillyG, Yes Cakewalk has really changed a lot for the better. 

Here is the notion file. When I exported to .xml this is what it gave me.

Snow Fall Night

Here's the notation .pdf

Snow Fall Night 

I haven't attempted to play it from that file to see if it played. I noticed some of the notes were WAY lower that the playing. GregW was helping me put with that since he has the same program.
