It is holidays where you are? lucky you vV, i was under the impression that Automap is the new wonder drug for the em-betterment of all mankind, lol, i wish there were laws to make people advertise honestly.
Well, i know it is a bit late but what i want to do is what i have been TRYING to do manually with the equipment i am surrounded with here, and that is to complete a song from start to finish within the confines of my studio.
To this time whether what people say about my music, i have only bluffed my way through, particularly with reference to drums. Drum machines are too expensive, not easy to understand, and serve only one purpose.
Also i like effects a lot, and although i like heavy sounds, i am a rock musician, i still like strings, and though i have a violin here for when i need it, i want to do far more with strings, and depth.
I am not in a band now but my last band (which i was writing and singing the stuff) was compared to Nine In Nails, but i had a keyboardist then. Now i am happily locked up in my studio and less sociable than ever. lol which wasn’t that great to start with. haha
I realise i will probably never be at the level of most here on keyboards, but i am good at getting that ‘live feeling’ music and that is what i think people like about my stuff.
i don’t do my music that heavy now-a-days, but i still like the edge, and the strength of a MIDI firing can completely change the music to where i want to be.
At least that is my theory.
The hard part is the learning curve that i am to go through when that thing gets here.
If my criticism was a bit harsh then i apologise, it was just that i had the opportunity to get the Novation at about half retail so i was a bit anxious to find out what you all thought.
At the moment i am having other problems with VST’s slowing up the system so the only way it was suggested to me was to have a clean guitar sound going into the DAW and running separate effects at the same time so i can hear it as i am playing, because playing a guitar with say distortion is a completely different way of playing to playing it clean. especially when playing lead.
So that is yet another problem i am working on.
