So after your kind suggestions, I bought a midi cable and managed to edit a midi file. It was a thrill to delete a block of data, and move a piano note up and down etc. But no midi editing on this track. What I DID use was REVERB – wow!!! I went all out and chose the “auditorium” preset. Loud and echoey! I like it! I tried Compression too but everything went quiet, so more homework needed. I played a few chords this time, would love to achieve something like a mouth organ effect one day. TQ, JoannaOctober 12, 2018 at 8:06 pm #10328
Too much reverb, in my opinion, Joanna, for a tune like Skylark.October 12, 2018 at 9:21 pm #10329
Okay Alan. ThanksOctober 13, 2018 at 6:25 am #10331October 13, 2018 at 2:11 pm #10332
I might do a third version tomorrow without a mouthpiece, to see if I can make it sound more personal. Keep the same piano and reverb setting. (Love weekends!)October 13, 2018 at 5:29 pm #10333Gianluca BarbaroParticipant
the sound is much better than the previous version! I love this piece, well done! The rhythmic combination between piano and melodica works well too now!
If I may, each effect plugin should have a “dry” and a “wet” fader: when using a reverb effect, the less is the dry signal, the more the sound steps away from the front. If possibile, I would put more dry signal to the melodica because now it sounds a little bit unfocused. Also, maybe you could raise the piano a little bit too.

Taking Gianluca’s advice and putting reverb and a little “dry” to the piano (same track). Then same amount of reverb with a little more “dry” to the melodica (new track, no mouthpiece). I’ll stop now, before we are all Skylarked out. Thank you everyone.

I’ll have to listen to these variations carefully tomorrow. Joanna, you are the student every teacher longs to have.October 14, 2018 at 7:36 am #10337
How not to be like this, Alan? It’s melodica uni! ?October 14, 2018 at 2:52 pm #10338
#2 is better and #3 much better, in my humble opinion — a lot of improvement in the melodica sound and, to my ear, in the timing.October 15, 2018 at 11:52 am #10340
Thank you for taking the time to listen. I’m relieved you think #3 is better than #2 ?. It’s a bonus to be learning about effects too. (TQ Gianluca). Love this instrument. Joanna
