I wrote a song on violin, now what?
Good day all:
I wrote a semi-classical piece for violin. It is just a melody in treble clef, but it is very dear to my heart. I would like to add flute, piano and cello as accompaniments and ultimately record the whole thing for my own use.
Do I have to find flute, piano and cello players to write their own part for my music? Or can this be done electronically with software?
I do not know what my next steps are. I just want this song to be complete and CD quality, ready for listening.
You can notate the other parts. If you want a CD-quality recording, you'll need players on each part. MIDI playback doesn't sound as good. It never will.
What about the vocalist for your song? Sorry, just a semantic pet peeve.
To answer your question, this can be done convincingly with a computer.
I agree with Timothy Smith. And a good place to start is www.musescore.com. You can notate your piece in Musescore (free software) and play it back with the "voices" in the software, at whatever tempo you desire.
Ted, I like the fact you have written a melody.
