The Fugue arranged for String Quartet

Thanks to the trial version of Synful Orchestra, which I am currently evaluating, Here is a version of the Fugue from The God Program (a work in progress), arranged for "String Quartet":

Fugue (arranged for string quartet) (mp3):


There are 5 days remaining in my trial period and I'm still debating whether it is worth the money. Would it kick off a surge of musical inspiration? It might. That would be worth something.

With careful tweaking of MIDI data, Synful Orchestra is capable of landing pretty much in the uncanny valley of emulated instruments. It's good - but it is not going to fool anyone and they might back away from the sound, saying "something doesn't quite sound right here but I'm not sure what".

Ooh, let me see if I can post the first *real* comment.

So, did you buy it?

just stupid

I'm still on the fence about Synful Orchestra. I don't really [i]need[/i] it, but it sure is fun to play with, but it wasn't as inspirational as I'd hoped. I'd still like to have it in my bag of tricks, though. I know where to find it, if and when I decide I must have it.
P.S. Here's another bug: It seems I can't comment to my own post as "colin". It says "Please choose another name". That's just stupid.
