An active SmartMusic® subscription is needed to play smp files. For information about system requirements, cost and how to subscribe to SM visit: www.smartmusic.com
Each Clarinet Solo comes with a full size (9” X 12”) printed Solo part (on 100 Lb. Offset paper), which has been prepared for actual use in performance, with realistic page turns, tempo indications with metronome markings, cues of the accompaniment part in longer rests, articulations, dynamics, measure numbers at the beginning of each staff, fingering suggestions, brief composer and background information.
In addition - a CD containing SmartMusic smp files with complete Accompaniment with a realistic sound - each instrument is on a separate track (channel) with a different pan (right/left placement) typical of a standard Chamber Music group (1st & 2nd Violins on the left, Violas & Cellos on the right, etc.).
The Solo Clarinet part also displays on the computer screen with a moving cursor (which can be shut off) to help follow the music.
The audio for the solo part uses a Clarinet sound and can be listened to with the accompaniment, alone or turned off.
Full string sounds (“tutti strings”) have been employed in the smp files because of the very inferior sounds for solo string used in SmartMusic since version 9 (the solo string sounds before version 9 were quite good - far less strident). Also included is an extra set of smp files (the “X” versions) which do employ solo string sounds (i.e., solo violin, viola & cello).
You can customize your accompaniment (and save the changes) in a large variety of ways (see Using SmartMusic ).
