Hello fellow Ardour users
Here's some music which has reached another milestone, so it's time for
a release. I've posted Part 1 to this list before, some considerable
time ago. Part 2 was completed in January as a brief diversion from Part
3, which I've just completed. These three sections are complete, Parts 4
and beyond are undeveloped ideas in my head at the moment.
The titles are just vague working titles at the moment.
Beyond Triple Point [9.29]
(i) Theme From Our Old World
(ii) Vale Fanfare: A Change of State
FLAC (56.5 MB):
OGG (ogg7 | 14.0 MB):
MP3 (320 kbps | 21.7 MB):
All tracked in Ardour 2.8 and mixed with the usual LADSPA and LV2
plugins (mostly EQ10Q, Invada and Calf). As always, a massive "thank
you" to all the devs. It's just raw mixdowns with a little light
limiting to raise the level, no post-processing besides that.
I managed to grind my quad-core, 4 GB RAM machine to a halt during
mixing of the third section and even after lots of bounce-downs and
track de-activation the CPU load was over 80% in places. The track (and
buss) count is something ridiculous -- 103 tracks (before bouncing) and
43 busses, if I counted correctly. Twenty tracks of massed Mellotron
orchestra certainly don't help! Then there's my tendency to put two mics
on a guitar amp and multi-track rhythm guitar parts. I've recently taken
to colour coding tracks and I've found this to be very helpful when
dealing with so many and showing/hiding mix groups and edit groups makes
navigation a lot easier as well.
