Re: New Music: Mountain Foothills Hotel (v.1)

Very atmospheric, good job! The 2nd one (Amanda) is probably my favourite of the three.

Re: Mary

Great!!! :shock: Mixing could be better here and there. but the composition is an explosion of creativity. .... explosion of creativity :lol: Just missing some growls or black metal vocals. Yep, I struggled with mixing a lot, especially when a lot of instruments were on at the same time... Hopefull...

Re: Mary

Cool! I trust you've heard Sandy Denny's song "Fotheringay". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbnLVvAJrec Actually no, I didn't know it! A truly beautiful folk ballad, and very poetic lyrics that make my attempt at those even more naive... The only song I knew about Mary was by Grave Digge...

Re: Mary

I have never used a condenser mic, but that might be part of the issue. Those things can be crazy sensitive. Even with a dynamic mic you have to use a foam cap on the mic to reduce the percussive consonants. How close to the mic was she, and did you have anything covering the mic? She was holding i...

Re: Mary

Wow! That's pretty epic! An ambitious work, and well-executed, IMO. The piece has good flow, like every part belongs, and the progression is logical. It tells the story well, and knowing the story helps the listener interpret the music. The story has emotional impact, and I think the emotion works ...

Hi all, I've finally completed one of the many tracks I've been working on these past few weeks. I'm particularly excited about this, not only because it's the longest and more complex I've published so far (about 9 minutes), but also because it's the first one that also features some vocals (contri...

Re: pod x3 using ubuntu

I'm mostly interested to send Midi commands to the pod and to be able to download some tone patches (l6t files). Has anybody succeeded with that in any Linux? Apologies for reviving this old thread, but I've been wondering the same thing... Many years ago, I owned a Pod Pro and I was very happy wit...

Re: The Golden Bottom

Really nice! While I agree that the choice of sounds may be improved (it sounds like the background classical guitar is MIDI too?), I enjoyed the music. The beginning reminded me of some of the quieter Rondo Veneziano tracks, while the guitar part brought Gary Moore to mind, maybe because it has a c...

Re: Só Danço Samba (Yet another Friday lunch jam session)

Thanks everybody. I love bossanova, and have always been particularly envious of who can play it: I wouldn't know how to start! Great track! I don't really know much about bossanova at all, this just happened to be in the book we're playing from: The Real Easy Book . I guess it's because bossanova ...

Re: Last Summer

Thank you all for the nice words! The ukulele sounds like the input gain was a little high, or maybe the mic was too close. Yeah, I tried to fix that a bit, but in some parts the gain remained way too high. The mic is a small round pick-up that you put on the Ukulele itself, so I don't think you can...

Re: The landscape with the mill

I particularly love the acoustic arpeggio in the background in the first minute, and how the electric guitar plays on that: it reminds me of some brief instrumentals Malmsteen played in some older albums, good work!
