    Some new world fusion...

    Hi all

    I have done two new world tracks this week and one was for a live gig that I did at the weekend, I copsed the track in Logic and then played Didgeridoo live over the top. This track is called Worlds Fusion.
    This features:Indian Sarod, Indonesian Gamelan, Spectrasonics Stylus RMX liquid Frame Puddles, Drums from Sample labs Broken Beats and Discography. African Mbira, Shakuhachi, Tabla and Greek Bouzouki.

    The other track I have just finished and this is called "Instincts". This features Spectrasonics Atmosphere and Stylus playing Backbeat's Push Pop drum kit.

    It also features Prosamples RareEthnic instruments for th Duduk and bonus Ilio content from Ethno Techno (more Duduk phrases). The first percussion sound is from Thno Techno too, it is the Sumama perc mix 1.

    It also features Apple World loop pack for the Santoor and hand percussion.

    Feed back on both tracks welcome otherwise just enjoy!( I hope)

    Both are in New compositions

    I have now posted these on my Myspace page too.

    Any advice on libraries for the best sounding Duduk? I guess RA is one of the best..

    Fun stuff.

    Don't want to lead off with a negative, but the loops got a little too "loopy" for me. Too many nights mixing Indian music; I've gotten used to the constantly shifting patterns coming from the tabla player. Almost like a surf; the general shape of the phrases are always there but the details are always changing.

    However, loved the melodic line from the Shakuhachi late in "Worlds Fusion." That really made the piece for me.

    Re the dukduk -- the use of pre-sampled phrases was well hidden. Felt like a real instrument playing in the track. But re a good sample library for one... for what it is doing on this track it seems possible to, well, pick up a real one and learn it well enough to do some stock riffs. But that's just my way of thinking...I already play recorder and crumhorn badly (and shawm really, really badly). And I've used at least one of them in a composition regardless of that, trading the character and intonation possible in a real wind for the lack of polish of a less-than-professional player.

    Not to start "that" discussion again! Just saying in the case of the above track it might be an option.

    Hi NoMuse, Thanks for the comments, indeed the tabla is a little too looped, the time I gave myself to compose this place was less than healthy LOL....

    The Duduk is from two very different sample libraries and today two people said they thought it had a vocal sound so much so that one thought it was a voice!

    I love the sound of the Duduk and plan to have a go. I like to play unusual instruments...

    Most of the phrases are pre played loops except two which I played through the keys.

    Many thanks for listening..

    I've listened to Herman's samples before. This looks like a great dukduk (to play like _that_, you'd have to spend more than a few weeks at it!)
