NecroPolo - MSI Demo (Barebone Fusion mix feat SID)
This arrangement was created by Hermit, my bassist mate in SIDrip back in 2010. We played this track onstage a couple of times during scene parties so the 'feat SID' misses a 'rip' in the title. The stage version included Werdy on the synths.
This actual track was recorded about 2 years ago when I set the guitar sound for the ReLive album, I used Bjerregaard's MSI song as a guitar test track for it:
I just reduced the stage version to a drums-bass-guitar trio as and added few bits here and there, '80s easy fusion style. The drums were created with EZD then I recorded the bass guitar. The guitar track was armed and I just started jammin'. You can hear an AMT M1 preamp here with its cab sim out that was directly plugged into the sound card. On the ReLive album at a later phase it was relpaced with an AMT P1 through a power amp and a Laney Greenback cab + microphones, the old-school way.
I'm sure it's not note correct to the original SID, I just tried to capture the feel. After 2 years in the box, the tune was released @ÁROK Party 2015, placed 4th where all higher ranks were won by friends of mine that made me much happier than winning something
The guitar was the 25-years old Hohner L75 that was under restoring (and unfinished) at the time and became ready around early 2014:
Thanks for all the feedback folks! I really appreciate that.
Zio + Teo: It is nice to say that but I am absolutely happy with the result during the compo. Anyway, I always keep my fingers crossed for the fellow competitors during the compos, especially when they are so great folks like you guys. Seeing Zio's happiness when she received the #1 prize C64 machine was the real prize for me
