i composed and played this string quartet with a midi keyboard, cubase as my DAW and the synchron solo strings by the vienna symphonic library. i changed nothing in the settings like the sound stage and the panning and used only the modulation wheel to, for example, make the sound of the cello louder and rougher.
it took me merely half an hour to record the four tracks, mainly as an improvisation, and now and then with the simple theme of b – c – b. i spent only a few minutes on tweeking some of the notes, mainly in the viola and cello tracks. mastering was done automatically with ozone by iZotope.
the piece is licensed via GEMA under the name “sauer Apple”. enjoy!
