so Chris, do you do music full time?? very impressive with the amount of recordings you did in one day. I only practice 8-12 hours a week. But I do beleive, any one can acheive the same results as the full time professionals but just takes a bit longer to acheive that thus focus on less pieces.
You must be a sight reader freak?
do you play all from memory?
I wish I could devote to music full time. Might even be able to play a piece without errors then. But sadly, there is a day-time job that needs to be done pay the bills. I took a day off for this session which had been planned and prepared for a long time. Yep I am an avid sight reader, never made an effort to memorize. Should perhaps focus on less pieces but there is so much I want to do.... I am like the proverbial child in the candy shop.
So now you self experienced that people can spot your slips........
Hehe yes, it would be pretty hard to miss them
They are getting less in number and severity though. Mind you I seldom chastize people for slips, unless they are too numerous to accept. I like to point out reading mistakes and would be interested to hear about the ones that I make.
What sorts of micro do you use?? it should pick up all pp tones....even a bird tweak from the back ground.
I use the Edirol R1's built-in mics which are decent but not as sensitive as 'real' mics. Especially in this session a lot of soft notes are inaudible even though I played'em right and proper. A bit annoying really as it makes the playing sound more insecure than it is. Guess I need to fiddle with the position one again, perhaps put it a bit higher up.
