What do you think?
So I was listening to the 100bpm midi for National Park, and I was really wondering why it sounded so different (and better) from what we recorded. Timing issues aside, I concluded that in the midi the cello used a bow and didn't staccato. I know that in our version it was written that both the violin and the cello were originally supposed to staccato, and then the violin was changed to bow since it was easier. What I am thinking is that maybe the cello should bow too. It gives a nice solid base foundation in harmony for the other instruments to play off of. I dunno, to me the staccato just sounds kinda hollow. Is it easier to bow the cello part Jluvial? Does anyone else agree with me? Either both stringed instruments should bow or staccato, not have opposites. It just clashes I think.
The midi just sounds so warm and nice with those bowed cello notes. Just saying :3
What do I know though, I play a penis instrument lol.
