I did struggle a lot with the whole audio balance in the mastering

Jump to new posts Re: Songs that only use one chord by Guitarhacker @ 11/24/21 07:54 AM

This is the first song I can recall being a one chord song. I guess the main reason is I was learning to play the guitar at this time and CCR was high on my play list. I recall some of the others of that era mentioned in the video. Interesting and cool stuff. I tunes out on the hip hop/rap part.

I play a light guitar, but then I've always preferred light guitars. In my current duo I switch between sax, wind synth and guitar a lot, so having a lightweight guitar makes putting it on and off many times per night a lot better. Back in the early 1990s I had an inherited case bursitis in my hip, and arthritis in the little finger of my left-hand due to a basketball accident when I was young. The hip hurt so badly that I couldn't walk 2 city blocks without sitting down, and I brought a keyb

Notes in a rack from decades past I had that Roland MT32 right next to the Yamaha FB-01. Bought a shelf for the rack and they fit beautifully side by side. Put in a little block is wood 3/4" x 3/4" behind them so they couldn't slide backwards and they sat in that rack for 3 years. So now I have to go out and find one of each for the 3rd rack. After I get the new power feed....

I like my TX81z, it has some sounds that FM synthesis does better than the current breed of synths. I have a Roland MT32 that also has a few stellar patches. New modules have a lot of great sounds, but when I need a sound from one of the oldies, it's nice to have it. That to me is an advantage of buying hardware synths. The TX and MT that I bought when Windows 3.1 or 95 was the OS of the day still work. Insights and incites by Notes ♫

[size:8pt][/size]Thanks, Mario. I wasn’t at a computer, but that’s the one. It’s quite a powerful checkbox, more like a preference than a display setting. Remember, it may not give you the dim7 if you are in certain simpler styles. And say happy birthday to your wife. It’s been nice knowing you.

Jump to new posts Song fades out on last measure by Larry Molter @ 11/24/21 06:50 AM

I use BIAB primarily for building backing tracks. I'm learning to play the blues and having a series of BTs in all keys and tempos is great; however, I create the song without a lead-in or an ending because ultimately the rendered .wav file gets installed on a looper. I don't want a lead-in count or two-bar ending. But... the last bar (usually bar 12) fades out the instruments except the drums. I'm using RealTracks exclusively. Any trhoughts?

+1 We have the reverse, with Window, MIDI Chord Detection. Great feature, at least in the Windows version. It gives you alternatives. I suspect you might appreciate seeing several inversions of the chord as well? Or just root position? There is a corollary to this request that we have also discussed: the ability to position or freeze or step through the chords of a song and see the notes on a keyboard. Right now, you can see them go by on the Big Keyboard, or view the notes on a staff, but to

BIAB starts to play while still generating the track. RB waits until its all done if you've added something new or regenerated a track. that's why it seems slower. but once you've saved as a seq file and you are mixing or making minor alts its as quick as BIAB. and so much more transparent. it's a matter of taste. i just like being able to see all the separate tracks 'up front'.

As bad as the physical maladies give us grief, add to that the mental component of being prone to panic attacks when being in a crowd. If my band ever played a bar (We won't do that. We cost too much for a bar.) where we'd be on the floor and the crowd is right there in our faces, I wouldn't make it through the whole show. About 30 minutes of that and I would be in full blown panic attack mode and have to get out of there. We play on stages where the crowd is some number feet below the stage and

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
