Re: REMEMBER THE MAC

Remembered, and Mac was such a good man and good friend who should be remembered fondly.

It hurts that the list of those to remember with sadness keeps growing.

Re: Hanging MIDI notes

Could be?!?! :icon_whoknows: I find if i go into Program properties and then the MIDI and VST sections in my DAW, the number of options and features that can be on or off or varied in amount are huge.

Re: Hanging MIDI notes

I'm afraid i can't help on that - i do have various occasional problems with MIDI (mainly due to my lack of knowledge) but I've not had hanging notes. Have you tried a different MIDI keyboard? There's a SoundOnSound forum thread on hanging MIDI notes in Reaper - don;t know if it's of use / if you've...

Enjoyed those. The first was very hypnotic and nice wah on the second but a good trick with the salty dog barks! :thumbsup:

Re: Blue Noodles

Not for the first time I found myself loving the freedom allowed to the player when letting blues into the music! :cool: There were a few times when trying to add the organ track that I wished I wasn't being quite so much free-form. :roll: Thanks for listening and being positive guys! :thumbsup:

Blue Noodles

Acoustic parlour guitar. As few notes as possible - suiting my relaxed mood.
A bit bluesy - close to being a one chord vamp. Bit of sparse organ thrown in.

:music1:


Blue Noodles.mp3 - (3.36 MiB)

Not my usual!
Too minimal??? :icon_whoknows:

Re: Ambient

Thanks Fenson! :thumbsup: I've recently watched a commercial film on dvd where there was an extra about the music soundtrack. The composer of the film score mentioned he'd used the Paul's Stretch software a good deal to incorporate stretched sounds into the film soundtrack. It was quite a low budget...

Certainly a post for difficult to "80ra42" that's difficult to get your head around. :eye_rub:

Re: Two Bluestunes of Mine an a link to My Album.

Modal interchange, and I don't pretend to know what it is, seems to be producing a more complex set of sounds and harmonies. "I Wish You Back Alive" seems to be taking me back to the 70s and some of the music coming out of the progressive side of music in Germany. Pehaps too the Phrygian e...

Re: "BRAVE EXPLORERS TOUGHT & a smile from Emelie"

Very fluent for the first time in the min6 pentatonic - sounds good to me, and every so often i was getting a Frank Zappa vibe from it. Not sure whether from scale used or phrasing or guitar tone? Good stuff! :thumbsup:

Another Time Another Plaice

A good few months since anything bluesy. Just to check i still remember the minor scale in standard tuning I grabbed a BT at random today, and did a first take recording. PRS SE Middle PUP : BC Free Amp VST Classic Crunch, but fairly well dialled down. Probably should have used a real amp! Paid for ...
