I am beginning to have a very DejaVue moment. I now remember working quite a bit with loops - likely some two decades ago. Tangmo helped me recall. His experience sounds frightenly similar to my own. I remember working with Fruity Loops. It was a lot of fun and in early days of recording it was pretty flashy. But I never really made any music with it. As I am finding now loops and loop based music is not the workflow I have honed my recording skills and will not help me achieve my music o

I think I might have said it before: You have created your own genre of music. Love the rhythms. There is a lot going on in the production. It is all so interesting to listen to. As usual, your lyrics are exceptionally well written.

This thread is getting novel length and I may be conflating different "objections" into one reply, but here goes. I started my computer-aided music making with loops. Acid software from Sound Forge...20 + years ago. It still exists, having gone through the hands of first Sony, and now Magix. I was also a regular listener and contributor to it's "showcase"--Acid Planet--as were some other members of this forum. It no longer exists. I heard some good stuff, and an awful l

Most excellent. That is why most lead guitarist are lousy bass players, to many notes with no repeating patterns. Been there - done that.

I don't know. The program was pretty unstable when I first began to use it and installed each of the components separately. I found where someone had put together a complete package that included all of the necessary parts in a single install and mine system has worked really well since. The program installs Python and is called SpleeterGUI and doesn't take long to install. If you installed the program another way, you may want to try this one: Hope that

Well we see that our reaction to the lyric has already been well covered. At the risk of redundancy the Dylan references are very cool. As is your vocal. Your mixes are always high bar and this one just sparkles and sets up a great soundstage. That acoustic guitar sounds great! The upright and held piano are perfecto. Outstanding...already listened three times! J&B

Very sorry to hear of Dusty’s passing, love ZZ Top. This is great, Herb! You are definitely channeling Billy Gibbons with that guitar work, love the pick harmonics. Perfect vocal too. And the track itself would fit right in with their set list. Very well done, really enjoyed this one.

Gospel at its absolute best! Great song! Super lyrics and backing tracks; you can't go wrong with a B3 and guitar! Super chops man! I agree about the vocals. In a song like this I would put a slap back delay on it to make it sound more like the singers of the 50s. YMMV

Chris, you did a fantastic job on this jazz song. PGMusic should showcase this when they advertise as it highlights the jazz side of BiaB. Freelance jazz at its best. Fantastic use of RTs!
