Re: Hmmm... Dried up?

Sometimes your c r e a t i v i t y is like a water pipe, (but the tap to turn it on and off is in your neighbour's house). :sadnod: You know that water DOES come out of it but you can't always control when it happens. Save the partial licks / riffs / songs & files for another day. If music is a pass...

Re: Ocean Loader 3 (2 x NEW Remixes)

Oh NO! I can hear it too now..... Ha Ha. and I used to watch that in my teen years. You do realise that this could have deeper implications. all of the theme tunes from my dubious childhood and teenage television viewing could be manifesting themselves in my remixes. It would give away secrets about...

Re: Ocean Loader 3 (2 x NEW Remixes)

Thanks for the kind words Foxfield..... :) If you read my previous comments in this forum, you'll get the gist of how much I struggled with 'Reason'. So, here and now in Feb 2012, I'm 100% using Reaper 64 as my DAW, (Digital Audio Workstation). Unless anyone knows of another, it's the only 64 bit Se...

Re: REMIXERS - Full of talent or left wanting?

Ok! Warning! submission from 'an old composer'...... :) On one level, (and I guess this is unique to myself, Reyn, Jonathan Dunn and any others who have submitted remixes), you are tinkering with your own history and, to a certain extent changing the original to 'How you would have made it sound' gi...

Re: What's your fave C64 orchestral remix?

I really think Glyn's 'Firelord' stands out. Considering the age of it now, (2002 remix), it still stands as a great arrangement despite the individual instrument quality. It's a beautiful, sensitive reworking of a classic C64 tune and deserves its place as a benchmark in the evolution in orchestral...

Re: Ocean Loader 3 (2 x NEW Remixes)

Thanks Andy... At the beginning, I thought the Orchestral remix would be the one I spent more time on.... but you're right, getting the feel of the original SID tune takes time and effort. The opening bars of the loader, (Mart's original bit), are in 6:8 and it's a really weird time signature to dru...

Ocean Loader 3 (2 x NEW Remixes)

Hi All,

Just uploaded 2 remixes of OL3. One is pretty true to the original, (even got some real SID sounds in there).

The other.....

Well let's just say it's completely different from the 1st...

See what you think - As ever, ALL feedback is welcome, good, bad & ugly :)

Re: Yahama XG compatible module or keyboard..?

Hi Kate, I have had a DB50XG, a MU100R and the awesome SW1000XG which I still have. Razmo is spot on in my opinion... There are still lots of these units about on e-bay and the like. The MU-128 is 128 notes polyphonic across upto 64 different parts with nearly 1,400 instruments and sells for around ...

Re: How do YOU make your music?

Lately, a few people have asked and talked about achieving 'Atmosphere', 'Ambiance' or more simply 'Mood' in the music that we produce. I've been revisiting a lot of music just recently. Some of it, stuff I haven't heard for decades. Anyways... If you want to hear, what I think is, one of the very b...
