Hire pros, use 'readings', or midi? Trying to make a sample CD...
Date: June 6, 2012
I'm an emerging composer hoping to interest people in my music. I have midi versions of my pieces, via Finale, but they can't rival live music. I have recorded readings of my works- but these have many mistakes. Do I need to invest in hiring professional singers? I want to make a sample CD to promote my music to conductors and church music directors. What matters to you more- the quality of the score or the option of being able to hear it through a recording? Do you tend to disregard scores that don't have audio samples? Is it better to send no audio at all than a reading with mistakes? Is imperfect midi better than nothing? ~ Heather
