> I am still most fervent about sampling orchestral instruments, and will
only encourage the use of them on demos, and not on commercial recordings. I
am, in fact, along with thousands of others losing the battle. One could say
that the battle is totally lost. Look at the loss of string section work to
synths. But this infiltration into klarinet has made me somewhat angry. I
will always make my views known in no uncertain terms, to those who wish to
take advantage of using a sampled sound as opposed to a live instrumental
sound. I may be old fashioned and hot headed, but the whole business of
sampled commercial releases stinks. I`m not saying that that is what our
friend is indeed preparing, but if the subject is mentioned, then Tony
Wakefield will open his mouth. I have a rock band who are preparing to
overdub three live brass players shortly. One member of the band is my son
in law. If he had mentioned sampling to me in the first place, then I
probably would have lost a daughter too.
I will fight and fight again. Everyone else here has to also, so please
don`t anyone chastise me for my efforts to preserve live music. That`s all.
Tony Wakefield
