Questions and Answers / Re: Silencers effectiveness

Hey Spattolo. It’s me Again.
Yes the airy sound is very perceptive for the one that’s playing But not really to anybody else around you. So it is better than just fingering the song but still not as good as actually playing. So it does help with practice. :)

I think it was your passion that caught my attention at first. That and your humor. You always seemed to me like a very nice fellow. :)
Questions and Answers / Silencers effectiveness
« Last post by Spattolo on June 05, 2020, 03:59:38 pm »
I would like to know (and possibly, to hear) how much you can actually distinguish the airy tones you are playing when using the silencers.
I only saw them used in the David Ramos review and in that quick demonstration I felt like all the notes were pretty much alike.

I guess it's not the case otherwise it would be just as useful as playing the fingerings without blowing at all, but I'm still interested in how well that does work, especially for what matters the switching of octaves. Is the tone consistent between one and the other whilst using the silencers?

Many thanks to whomever may help.

Thank you very much Sir, it astonishes me to be remembered after such a long time, for the passion I had for that instrument.

If you checkout the Fingering chart the left thumb is only opened twice throughout the entire range, and both times the note is covered by alternative fingering.i also play a Roland Aerophone, which has many alternative fingerings through a 3 octave + range. I generally use just one option 😎

That is a interesting solution Mike. I have had my left thumb get sore when I first started playing. That is an advantage of have overlapping notes on the chambers. But my solution was a little less creative. I discovered that I was squeezing the tone hole way harder than I needed to and that over time my thumb would build up the skin like when I played guitar. I had also thought of something like a whittler’s thimble Made out of leather. For people that don’t know what that is. It is like a leather sleeve or sock that slides over your fingers or thumb. But if that works for you. It is something I had not thought of. Some songs might get a little tricky to play though on the switch. :)

I have been having trouble with a sore left thumb, caused by the size of the hole. After consulting the Fingering chart, I decided that the left thumb was virtually redundant (not really needed), so I have taped over the hole. I find this much more comfortable 😎

I have had you on my mind for a while. Wondering what happen to you. I am glad to here you are doing well. I didn’t post much back then. I did a lot of gosting back then but I read Everybody's posts. There for a while you where a pretty prolific poster. If I remember right, you joined around 2007 or 2008. I enjoyed a lot of your posts.  :)

It can be tricky getting the right balance of volume with the human voice especially with the flute family. I think small speakers carry the flute very well but the lower tones not so much.  ???

Absolutely.  Getting a good recording and mix is as much of an art as playing or singing.  And yes different speakers have different ranges that they do best.  That is the reason professionals systems have a horn, woofer, and sub woofer.
