Update #21

Phase One - Pro Tools

I'm happy to announce that the original Pro Tools files from the recording sessions are now available, thanks to generous hosting from

Please remember these are unedited raw recordings, so they will not sound nearly as good as the final music that will follow very soon.

      Once again Aaron, thank you & Musopen for your work.

      in the meantime, while waiting for final format, my PC could have many extra night shifts to download a part of this huge music flotilla.

      What a week! First the Open Goldberg recordings, and now this! I will wait for you to finish editing before I have a go at them, though. I don't know everything on the list, but I suspect I probably should (and will!). Glad to hear came through, they seem like a perfect place for it.

      @Aaron OK, thanks for answering. So, can we get the other eight in a new kickstarter? :-D Now that you have acquired a lot of experience on working with an orchestra, we should get the music in less time ;-).
      Anyway, thanks a lot for your efforts. Waiting for the final music...

      @Harald yes you are right, secret revealed :) we also have some more without pro tools, which I'll include in the final list.
      @Gervase you do not need protools, these are wav files, i imported them into Logic Pro, but it takes some patience.
      @Rodrigo some of my past updates included concerns with pushing to do everything given that this was our first time using this orchestra, and I went back and forth a lot, ultimately I decided to do all the Brahms symphonies instead, as it was lower risk (if we needed to record everything 2 or 3 times) and assuming things went well, we can get a lot more additional, which we did.

      Sorry, I need to make a question. I can only see the Symphony No. 3 of Beethoven. Where are all the other eight? ;-)

      I've just listened to some Brahms 1 and American Quartet premixes -- sounds great! It's wonderful to see (and hear) this effort coming to fruition.

      Do you need Pro Tools to listen to these, or are there raw recordings in there in WAV or FLAC or something? It seems sensible to ask before downloading multiple GB...

      Excellent news!

      As far as I can see - there are also Logic Pro files in archives? :)

      The exciting thing about this is that finally we have a work list. I'm pretty sure you haven't given us that before, and it's kinda important :)

      But this is awesome, thanks for your great work!
