    Default What Did You Come For..?

    This was as much an experiment as anything else. I wanted to try to write a song on paper (technically Sibelious), learn to play what was on the stave and then record it. For the most part, I think it went okay.

    Nice one Dave, it went great mate. A bit repetitive but great just the same. Well done.

    Just because, I tried editing the track down. It's only 20 seconds shorter but it makes a huge difference.

    I've uploaded it, so hopefully no one will understand why you thought it was a bit repetitive.

    I thought the track was great, your sax was really good. You have a talent for this sort of composing, hope to hear more of your work. Was that a live band, or from a computer? The drumming was superb and I thought it's got to be live. I'm probably wrong though, anyhow best of luck in your endeavours.

    I'm afraid you're wrong. Apart from the saxes the whole thing was written and played using modern technology.

    When I was a kid and living in Manchester, we could only dream of this sort of technology and freedom. Back then the studio I worked in for a short time, StarTrack (which was in one of the archways behind Piccadilly Station, on Sheffield Street when it was cobbled and muddy ) upgraded the hardware we were running Cubase 1.0 on so that we could sample a massive 9 minutes of music! That was considered state of the art!

    These days incredible VSTs and even DAWs are available to anyone and everyone for free. Legally free, not illegally shared.

    It's actually a little sad that young musicians have almost unlimited tools to make music with yet so few seem to be taking any real advantage of it.

    Thanks Dave,
    That's really amazing to me, i'm old school I suppose. I even have trouble on my laptop. You would think young musicians who grew up with computers would take advantage of all the new technology, it seems such a waste.

    If I could find someone who wanted to play this stuff then believe me, I wouldn't be using technology.

    I use an Audio-Technica AT2020 mic into a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB interface and then into my laptop.
