Sancocho Outtake 2

By Guabágeuse on December 22, 2018 5:28 pm

Another vagrant track from the Sancocho Studies sessions. This one actually dates back even further, as it was originally written for soprano and contrabass. In it's Sancocho form, it was meant to close out the entire series, however, like last week's entry, it seemed to stay behind as the project mutated. Also, as I exported it this week, LMMS decided to be difficult and cursed me with some random clipping. I edited out the loudest and most out-of-place spikes, but left others that were a bit more subtle in for a lo-fi effect (and convenience, I must admit).

Nicely conceived duet. I'd love to hear the original some time — did the soprano part have lyrics or was it just a vocalise?

It was only a vocalise, since I don't trust myself to write lyrics. Hahahaha Sadly, the piece was never performed live, though.

LMMS can do that, just be sure to have a limiter in the master.

It's very nice though, somewhat Christmassy too.

Thanks so much! I usually avoid limiters so as not to reduce the dynamic range of the music too much, but I'm guessing there are ways to set one so that doesn't happen?

Yes, just lower the master down until it doesn't clip.
