This piece, Air on the G String, by Johann Sebastian Bach, from his Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D Major, is a Musicnotes Special Edition, purchased from Musicnotes, Inc.. Their Musicnotes Special Editions are printable sheet music, which include rights to perform, record and print multiple copies. I have sequenced this entire piece, using Noteworthy Composer, running on an old Windows XP computer. Noteworthy Composer plays the piece through an M-Audio USB MIDISport Uno bus-powered MIDI interface, to a MOTU Timepiece AV, which routes the MIDI channels to four separate Roland Sound Modules, specifically two U-110's, one Orchestral M-OC1, and one Dance M-DC1. The audio output from the sound modules, for this piece, is passed through a DigiTech Studio Quad multi-effects processor, and then goes to a Roland VS-1680 24-bit, 16-track Digital Studio Workstation. The audio tracks are saved with a sample rate of 44.1k, the same as an audio cd; and at an audio bit depth of 24-bit, DVD-audio quality. CD audio is a bit depth of 16-bits, for comparison. The tracks are then mixed down via an optical audio (Toslink) interface to an old Apple Power Mac Dual-processor 2GHz G5 computer, using Bias (Berkley Integrated Audio Software) Peak LE Version 5.2.1. The final AIFF file is then converted to MP3 format using iTunes.
While this piece, as I recorded it, is over 4 minutes long, I have snipped the tracks down to under one minute in length, to provide a sample of the instrument combinations.
