    MyLittleHounddog

    Isn't it funny. I played around with the JABB for the first time, using one of my "oldies".

    My little hounddog - full JABB except that Jazz Organ
    My little hounddog - full JV-1010 incl Jazz organ and piano (ext. card 03 - JV1010)

    Have fun comparing those two. Both are Tenor saxes. For that JABB version I just used the tenor without KS. I'll have to explore that in the future.

    This is some great jazz.

    When I was young, I wanted to play the tenor sax. My parents wanted to buy me a clarinet. Huge difference in price. We compromised on an alto sax.

    Being the brat I was, I played it for 3 months and quit.

    40 years later, I still have the sax and need to recork it, but at least I still have it.

    Well done

    As a dog-lover myself, I'm pleased to report my
    own pooch, Harry (a mutt, not a hound), gave
    both versions a two-ears-up; though tail wagging
    was included with the second version.

    Nice work on these, Raymond.

    My best,

    I had a Beagle named Rebel when i was a kid, that was always getting out and always ending up at the dogpound. There came a day when he was not at the dogpound and nowhere to be found.

    My sadness was relieved one day, when a very old man, in a beat-up and rusty old pickup truck, drove down my street with Rebel sitting high in the seat beside him. Rebel looked very happy until he spotted me. He then had a kinda sad and embarrased look on his face. I smiled and waved to him to let him know it was OK, and i think he understood.

    ...and there was my neighbor who made some doghouses for his two hounds and two birdogs, and those crazy dogs ate their new doghouses.

    This is a great Jazz tune Raymond, very enjoyable to listen and to recall the hounds we loved so much.

    That was some pretty cooolll jazz man. I Loved that sax.

    It could be my speakers but it seemed to me that the JABB kick drum was just a tad loud from :20 to about 1:00.

    And that reminds me that I have one with that problem and I'll have to go back to MIDI to change it-someday.

    My 15 year old dachshund is pretty deaf so if I turn it up loud enough for him to hear it the neighbors will call the sheriff. I guess we are just like him. If we get really old we won't see or hear much but we'll be able to still smell and taste.

    The ability to smell everything could have it's draw back if you get really old.

    Thank you guys. As you have guessed, I like Jazz.

    Today I refreshed that JABB version. The link is just the same.
    I used:

    Brush Drumkit
    GM Classic Jazz Drum Kit
    Electric Guitar
    Steinway Jazz, set a bit brighter
    Upright Bass
    Tenor Sax 1
    Cakewalk TTS-1 Organ 5/Organ 1 (both have the same track, blending their individual sounds). In my opinion that original Jazz Organ from the JV-1010 sounded a bit better.

    Here and there I adjusted some knobs, volumes, attacks, etc. Also some Ben Webster "breathing" at the end, just to try it. Overall it is better, my modest ears tell me so.

    Hey, Raymond - What a great diversion from your big Symphonic Poem project. I love hearing you do up some groovy Jazz for us.

    It's kind of surprising that JABB doesn't have a nice Jazz Organ in it. That's a curious omission. But the Organ you used sounds very nice, I think.

    I'm listening to your newer file, and the mix sounds really fine to me.

    I got lost in the rhythm and melody line now and then, kept me on my toes!

    Nice work, my friend.

    Mijn vader is Nederlands, maar mijn moeder is van België (het Franstalige gebied). Zo mijn Nederlands is niet zo vlot.
