I went back to work on Milky Way tonight. ::sigh::
I worked on the child’s exultant cry that he’ll “never part day from night!” and the recapitulation moment. ::sigh:: I used the SoftSynth instruments so that the computer wouldn’t bog down with hiccups and glitches, and it was sounding good in a sketched-out kind of way.
Then I switched over to the Garritan Personal Orchestra sounds. ::sigh:: Now it sounds like crap, all unbalanced and blaring.
One positive thing: I found that by turning off the “ambience” setting, i.e., reverb, there are a lot fewer hiccups.
It still sounds like crap. ::sigh::
