    Nice stuff.

    I downloaded a few new sound packs for my DAW and had to give them a go.

    ^^ The beginning sounds like a soundtrack for a dark science fiction movie.

I'm sure the emphasis in the words are totally different and it's in a language I've never heard but it was fun using it.

    Check out some of the video reviews of the Korg Miku pedal.

    Little ditty inspired massively by Ennio. A bit different and fun.



    It was a little problematic with the limits of Garageband to get an organic feel to the rhythm on the drums. It tries to correct in places I wish it wouldn't. They weren't working as a single track the way I wanted in most spots, so I did several tracks and tried to time them a little better that way. Stilted in some places, but it's as good as I was going to get with that.

    I love the elephant-like noises at the beginning. Pairs perfectly with the tribal drum feel. Definitely different but I like it, especially the different instrument sounds working together with the flies. If you don't do different once in a while things get predictable.

    These dog days of summer are just dragging and the news isn't making anything better. We all want this Covid and political and racial mess to be over, but it's probably going to go on for some time yet. I think everyone is feeling a little down and this track represents that.

    Music for an Indian western (eastern)?

    Nice, the guitar at the beginning reminds me a bit on REM?

    Here' the latest from my dungeon lair. It has some mellotron in it, so it may be of interest to some on here. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have a lot of catching up to do with everyone's music.

    Another Covid song

    Hard to write about anything other than disaster with this crap looming over our heads. If there were movies actually being made these days there would be an overwhelming common theme, no doubt.

    Do I hear some slight banjo in the background?

    I feel a slight Kansas-feel in some way.

    Hi, Renate! Thank you for listening! it does sound like a banjo, but it's just a staccato 12 string with effects. For you keyboardists out there, how do you tame mellotron sounds? There's such a delay in attack, it's difficult to play in time. I find the swell of the chord means you have to be ahead of the beat in order for it to sync with the music. It's a little like a volume pedal with the guitar.

    The Mello was always a delayed (slow attack) instrument. Not made for individual string lines, just a background swells pad. You just have to play it that way. It's like hitting a fret low and bending up to the note you want. You know it's wrong but the bend makes it right. So hit your keys early and there you go.

    Thanks, Bob! That's what I've discovered, too, although I'm no keyboard player!

    Bob, listened to Melancholy. As usual, very nice. It has a Bach-feel to it. Very engaging. Is that an Oboe sample carrying the melody at one point? Sounds very realistic.

    Matt, also checked out "Boots and Blades". Tribal drums, Middle Eastern scales, and then a hint of Japanese/Oriental stylings? It also has a little bit of the chamber rock vibe a la Univers Zero. Very interesting piece!

    I used the Spitfire Audio BBC samples and stuck with the sad sounding instruments in the orchestra, like bass, cello ensemble, solo violin, oboe, french horn and bassoon. The end is just piano and bassoon, which I've heard work well together in other recordings.
