No I don't. Bar 7 is fine now. Well done!richard66 wrote:Let me try again... Do you, Rainer, still hear an extra note? This time I caught it and knew just what to do!
A few other points though.
I still think the ending slows down a little bit too much, i.e. the minim rest and the minim chords could do with being a bit shorter. Not enough to bother re-recording were it not for the following:
There is an unfortunate creaking noise just after the final chord has started. Must be the horse successfully keeping the cuckoo quiet.
There is something not quite right about the rhythm in bar 18 (at about 1:10, where the RH has the triplet). I've not commented on this before because I couldn't quite work out what it was exactly, but I think I've now figured out what it is. While with Chopin one can and should be quite flexible when the two hands have different rhythms, I think there is a limit to how flexible you can be in a simple 3 against 2 situation, especially when you are keeping the rest of the piece by and large fairly metronomic for now, and therefore I think it is worth putting a little effort into getting this bar's rhythm correct too. You want to avoid disrupting the LH quaver pulse here while the RH plays the triplet.
During the second beat of the bar, we should get four sounds, in the following sequence:
1) The RH high E together with the LH low A.
2) The RH low E.
3) The LH chord E=F#-C.
4) The RH A.
And indeed all the above do happen, and in the right sequence, but not quite at the right times. (1) and (2) are OK, and it is apparent that you have speeded up so that (2) happens one third of a beat after (1), which is good.
But the problem is that (3) should happen half a beat after (1), and (4) should happen 1/3 of a beat after (2) [or 2/3 of a beat after (1)], whereas it sounds to me as if (3) and (4) are both late, and that you are playing (3) 1/3 of a beat after (2), and (4) 1/3 of a beat after (3). In other words, the four events (1) to (4) are occurring at roughly equal time intervals of about a triplet each. The result is that beat 3 of the bar (where RH plays F#) is a triplet late.
Finally, on the point Monica raised about input volume, I wonder, are you doing any post-processing? If so, does it involve equalization? Perhaps that is what is beefing up the volume too much. Remember that even at the climax the dynamic does not rise above single forte.
