I'm a violinist/fiddler, and I really want to play some of Skillet's violin pieces, along with stuff from bands like Red! The problem is, I don't know where to find the violin music or synth. Anyone have any idea where to find any of it?

Not exactly sure what you mean by not being able to find the synth, but I doubt you'll be able to find sheet music for the strings. Your best bet would be to work on one yourself. :)

By not being able to find the synth, I mean I can't find the music anywhere. If I could find the synth, it would be quite easy to translate.

Well, Kor uses hardware synths. Whether it's her Triton, MS2000, Lead2x, etc... it wouldn't be easy to duplicate the sound because, like synths work, it's modified to get the sound.

Korey Uses a Korg Triton Studio whenever i've seen them live... any modern mainstreem rompler will have some orchestral patches close to the 'skillet sound'... if you want synthesized strings, agian, any VA or even rompler will be able to do something close. My yamaha Motif ES has quite a expansive synth engine... i've been able to recreate most any sound for any song that skillet has done. I'm a Gearhead, and i have a good idea of what most of the band uses live... i must have a GMP roxie and a mesa Triple Rec! ;-)

I just want the notes she plays. Like music notes on a paper or something. I'm not trying to duplicate the sound - I'm want to actually play it on a real violin. I think it'd be sweet.

Best thing to really do then would be to sit down with your violin and find each sound and mark it. You'd probably be the first to tab out the strings part. It would take time and be annoying, but I don't think you will get that any other way.

Ok, I guess thats how I gotta do it... My teacher has been teaching me to learn by ear. So no one anywhere has tabbed out the synth? It would be a lot easier that way...But I guess someone has to do the work. If only I could seperate the strings from the rest of the

Or you somehow used midi with a guitar...

So which parts are these exactly? You're not the musician? As in, you didn't play and write the original Collide? If you got anything else, I'd love it!

yo, hey, I think i have the solution for you problem:

There is a program out there that I'm sure a lot of guitar players know called 'power tab editor.' If you don't have it, it's a free download, just google it.

So, go download that, then it has some cool stuff it can do. It can have several different types of instruments entered into it, piano, guitar (duh) and several different types of string instruments. What it does is it allows you to download special files of different songs, it can electronically play the TAB (music) back to you so that you can hear it before you play it. And, it also gives you the music in both guitar tab, and reg notes. Well, I found the power tab editor files for Rebirthing, whispers in the dark...and one other one. And the rebirthing has the violin music written into it. So, if you download guitar pro, then find the Rebirthing PTE file, then it had the music you seek.

Sweet. So where do you get these PTE files?

04-16-2007, 03:31 PM
You need to goolge Powet Tab Editor and download the program.

Then, you can really just surf the web for them. I would recomend for the Rebirthing PTE file.
