I listened to Christian's original submission a while back, and I remember it being quite a bit of orchestral, too. Guess he's changed it since.

EDIT: I take that back. The "orchestral" part I heard was the song getting cut off in the middle and instead moving on the the next song on my playlist, which was a song from FFTactics (all of which are orchestral).

On another note... if Christian is a piano player, then how come he sequenced "Memories from the Wind Scene" instead of playing it live?

Christian, you're my favoritest piano player.

Seriously though, this is epic stuff. I feel like it was a bit underappreciated in the panel. I've been listening to this arrangement for a looong time now. Contrary to the panel, I definitely feel that the ideas in this are trademark Cpac and that it's definitely innovative. I agree that it's not his strongest, but to call it "trite" is, I think, underappreciating the creativity of this mix immensely--especially when you compare it to most of the mixes on this site.

Anyway, I'm done ranting. Great job, C!

Ahhh. Finally.

Yeah. I hate mixing/mastering my piano pieces. I just CAN'T find the sweet spot, and I can't remember exactly what I did with Wind Scene. Ah well, we're all still learning this, eh?

And, for clarification, I can barely play a C scale on time, so NO, I DON'T play piano. Piano roll for the win.

Haha, that's what I thought. It's just that the judges kept talking like this was a live performance.

No, I wouldn't say that. Certainly not for me.

Okay, so not you, Larry. But TO talking about the sustain pedal and analoq referring to it as a performance did give that impression.

This piece is awesome Christian, and now i'm inspired to go and make some piano pieces of my own, somehow they don't always turn out as good as I want them to know...

These aspects are available and controllable via midi data in any sequencer/piano roll in most music software packages.

More information: http://www.digifreq.com/digifreq/article.asp?ID=45

But that's just the beginning. Many of the most important aspects of MIDI are handled by Control Change (CC) messages. One common CC is used for sustain pedal information (also known as Damper Pedal or Hold Pedal). When you press the pedal, MIDI sends an On message for CC 64 (the Control Change number dedicated for sustain pedal information). When you release the pedal, an Off message is sent. The sustain pedal is an example of a switched CC message. It's either On or Off, with no gradients in between.
Does this explain our votes better?

"The sustain pedal's certainly been well used here" shouldn't necessarily be taken literally, it's just a way of saying that the notes are well-drawn out. Whether it's played live or not.

Either way, it's a nice piece, I still enjoy listening to it.
