    A little experiment in Rewiring Sonar and Notion:

    Caledonia


    I wanted to record the tenor part too but I struggled to transpose it in Notion. Maybe another day.

    edit: added tenor part and re-recorded the others too.

    Howdy all,

    Here's the current bash at the other christmas song, It came upon a midnight clear. Definitely some mix issues to sort out, and maybe some rearranging of octaves?

    Hi All,

    I seem to be having same issues as a lot of you with time, been tied up with work so still to get anything practiced let alone recorded.

    Im going to try and produce my christmas track Thursday so it will be a couple of run throughs and then commit to tape no time for retakes etc.

    Anybody that has a finished track they are happy to go on the CD project please send me an IM (I know some have already posted there links, but it makes it easier if you send it to me directly so I don't miss anybody) with the track link in and I will get it uploaded to the soundclick site and packaged up - really must have the deadline as 3rd December as after this time I will be tied up videoing and producing DVD of local nativity plays and school productions and will be on tight deadlines to meet end of school terms etc.

    Please remember this is a fun project so its better to have a track on even if its not "perfect" in your mind as we are our own worst critics.

    Saturday 4th December I will be putting the CD track list together, volume balancing and packaging. If I don't have enough to fill the CD I will just upload to soundclick.

    So its the final push, the final countdown your final chance to share your holiday spirit.

    Of the take of heard so far I think we should have some good submissions.

    Im happy to take one or more tracks from you, so don't feel shy.

    I'm waiting on a short track from a collaborator, and feeling I need to take one more run at it... about 99% there, but funeral home last night, funeral today and everybody in the house seems to have come down with a cold... ugh. And I'm in the same boat, working on a holiday video, won't be produced for this season but I have to get it all shot, and the weather needs to cooperate. ;-)

    Mark - Just submit the one you did earlier, it's a good take..I may just go with my first take as well.
    Hi Alan/Bill Yeah o.k. despite some serious criticism I'll leave it to the discretion of Adrian.
    cheers, Mark.

    I finally got my recording setup to where I could knock-off another take of my xmas tune. Some of you said you liked my sound on last years Run Rudolph so I dusted off the PPT mouthpiece I used on that one and did this second take with it. I still want to do another version because I was so concerned about getting the sound right that I didn't put any effort into the small solo section and it shows. Reminder -here is the first take I recorded/posted a couple weeks ago that I REALLY didn't like the sound of: If Every Day and here is the second take recorded today: Like Christmas ..which do you guys prefer, the mellow or the crisp? Something in between?

    Eldavo - I really liked that take! Great stuff! Loved the improv, sweet! The only thing I would change is when you come in and accompany yourself you drown out your lead, if you lower the volume on that second horn it would be fine. Funny thing is after the solo the second horn is the perfect volume. Match that before the solo and your golden.

    Hi Friends,

    I've never posted any recordings on SOTW, but it is my first semester student ensemble performance this Friday (12/2). Yes I am 34, but I have only been playing since age 28 and am lucky enough to have a wife that let me go back to college for music studies. Before this semester, I had about a year of private lessons scattered over those 5 years. Anyway, I am still not posting anything, but my performance is being streamed live through the University of Maine at Augusta website. My group will go on at roughly 8:00 pm Eastern Time (maybe off 10 minutes either way depending on the group before us), and will play for about an hour. Fun (and really hard) fusion music from Michael Brecker/ Brecker Brothers, Weather Report, Steps Ahead, Bob Berg, Chris Potter, Mike Stern and Chick Corea!

    Just inviting anyone who has time to listen in and give the same honest feedback that anyone would expect from the gang here at SOTW. I am playing tenor on all the tunes but one where I get to rock out on congas. The other sax player is my instructor David Wells (user dctwells), but he is only playing on about half of the tunes. I am very lucky to be playing with this great group in my first year! I spent a lot of time getting these songs together, as they are really pushing my technique. Here is the link, just click "watch the webcast!" in the bottom center of the page:

    http://www.uma.edu/

    Maybe for post #1000 I will get up enough courage to record and post something in this thread...

    Hey Mike, that's a much other genre than you normally post. Great take, well done .

    Both sounded good to me Alan. Soundwise I liked the first (mellow) take a bit more, but the second was also good and you played better on that one. It's ofcourse up to yourself to decide .

    +1 to post your track Mark. What would this CD project be without our Australian hero ?

    Okay gang, my collaborator has been called away on business, so I gotta go with what I've got. This may or may not be the final mix.

    Rock and Roll Christmas

    hope you enjoy.

    Hi guys some interesting tunes as we get nearer to Xmas, this is my attempt at Body and Soul http://www.box.com/s/83lexast3cneglou3bml It's just a couple of choruses, mel first time then a little improv and melody towards the end.

    Really enjoyed that Bill! Very upbeat xmas tune, we needed that! Not that you singing was ever bad but I think it has improved greatly (less stiff more fluid) job well done! (even if it's not done)

    Yeah ! That was great Bill ! I thought the guitar break (about 2/3 through the tune) was a bit low in the mix.

    Tom - that was nice and easy to listen to. Your timing is getting better.

    I liked that take very much Tom, well played with a good sound.

    Thanks guys....Just re-mixed Rock and Roll Christmas based on some feedback give it another listen, hopefully all the instruments have their own space.

    Rock and Roll Christmas remix

    Alan, that's funny, I didn't think the vocal take as that great...but at the moment with the cold it's much worse so this is it...;-)

    Hope I did George and Hank proud....just call me Hurricane..lol

    Oh and I have to give props to my collaborator Mike Wich from NYC... he did all the other tracks (except the drums) on Sunday afternoon... then later re-did the drums. He rocks!!

    I did another and final take of my tune tonight: If Every Day Was Like Christmas

    Went back to the metal Berg with a new reed and I think I hit that happy medium (soundwise) between the other two takes. I am not all that unhappy with my small solo section either so she's a keeper and SOTW Xmas CD bound.

    Whoa!!! excellent Alan...and congratulations! No more Christmas songs for at least 12 months
    Bill: What can I say? To think that I even considered singing on my track. I wonder what you'd sound like if you had the full-on influenza???
    Brendan: Well she got a tad wild and woolly half way but I managed to get through it unscathed Yeah what a peaceful relaxed time of the year!
    Tom: You negotiated a difficult task with aplomb. No holly nor mistletoe in sight and a nice round tone.
    cheers, Mark.
