August 30, 2016 User Showcase Song - Moving In The Right Direction

I finally had a chance to write a new one! This one was a real challenge, to say the least. My Mac Mini crashed a few weeks ago, while I was finishing up the Praise and Worship project I just released. So I had to master all the songs on my PC. Now, my Focusrite Saffire 6 is causing a blue screen of death on my PC all of a sudden! So I wrote this song and recorded and produced it on my iPad, using Auria. This is the first time I have done anything with it, so I hope it turned out okay!

The song is appropriately titled Moving In The Right Direction. All the instruments are RealTracks/RealDrums, with some additional percussion from me. All the vocals are me. I hope you enjoy it!

Here are the RT's/RD's used...

RealTracks in song: 1717:Bass, Electric, TexasBluesRockStraight Ev 120

August 23, 2016 User Showcase Song - Lonesome Feeling

Here is one we wrote while ago. I was asking for some feedback from Floyd who suggested I go with my guide vocal, so here for what it's worth and with some trepidation is my first lead vocal posted here.

I do have a nice version with Leon singing - (I think we'll just keep this one to ourselves.....)

Leon wrote the lyrics I played the guitar solos and sang.

August 10, 2016 User Showcase Song - Every Time I See Your Face

Many of you know me as being firmly stuck in the 80s, but The Blues has always been my first love and for this one, I wanted to get away from the traditional 12 bar, so I've come up with an 8 bar and a more jazzy feel. For those of you who are interested in such things, I tracked the guitars and vocal through a 1960s British valve amplifier made by a company called RSC and used an old Shure Unidyne 3 microphone which I've had for ever. For the drums, I used the Drum Source sample player with our own samples. For the snare drum we made a new sample using an old Premier wooden snare, with a loose head and snare and recorded it very dry using the same mic about two feet above the drum. There are very few other effects used, other than compression from an old Drawmer valve compressor, a bit of chorus on the guitars and a short reverb here and there. The guitar was my old Telecaster. I'm hoping that the result has an old style recording feel to it.

The RTs are:
Tenor Sax RT404, Baritone Sax RT2135, Bass RT 564 and the Piano was a midi Supertrack with a patch from Forte.
