Dowland, John - Lachrimae Pavan (Update)

Post by lucy » Tue Apr 10, 2012 2:27 pm

Finally, I've recorded an update of this piece.

It is not as clean as I would like, but I have incorporated much of the advice people gave following the last version. Thanks everyone. In particular, I've worked on my dynamic range.

Please let me know what you think.

Constructive criticism welcome.

Lucy,
This was the first thing I listened to in my office this morning. I enjoyed it very much. You play with such a nice tone. Thanks for sharing this.

It was a little too slow for my taste but I really like that bit about two thirds of the way through where you slowed it right down that was really nice. I didn't hear your other recording though sorry

I think you should play it slow to maintain the melancholy nature of the piece. Just my opinion.

I enjoyed it.

Thanks for commenting aatz1982 and Alan. :)

I've tried playing it faster, but somehow I prefer the slower tempo. I know it's a pavan, so this might indicate it should be played a bit faster, but it's also very melancholy and it seems to lose something of that mood when played faster. That's just my view.

I hear it, but it seems to have sound glitches every so often. Possibly the file is corrupted???

Ah yes, you're right about that. I looked at the file in Amadeus Pro and every now and then there are very brief sections where the audio signal disappears. Only lucy would know if these are artefacts of the original recording or (more likely I suppose) an indication that the file has become corrupted.

It seems fine if we download it but it isn't playing at all online, for me.

It plays all right for me with Safari on MacOS.

I'm using windows 7 and I've tried it with Chrome and Opera. It won't play online with either of them. Anyway never mind, as I say it plays ok if you download it and I've heard it already. I just thought the uploader might want to know that there is some problem with the file. I tested other peoples uploads and they all play fine online so it's definitely a problem with this particular file.

Very odd, as it looks like a perfectly normal MP3 file :?
I tried it on Windows 10 (via VMWare Fusion) and got it to play with Microsoft Edge but, just as you found, it wouldn't play with Opera. I'll consult the other moderators and see if any of us can clarify the problem.
