    You really should do more yard work, the resulting creavity is quite relaxing.

    Thanks Tom.


    LOL That's what my other half said, did she tell you to post that?

    A friend sent me a ton of Moog and synth sample programs and I was just playing around with one of them and liked the pad I was checking out so I plugged in my Yamaha So8, grabbed some clean paper and started writing the song, and then started recording it. I do everything in stand alone. I just can't get a handle on the sequencing thing you cats do but live recording I know.

    I totally understand. In my case, I have Finale 2010, Cubase Studio5 and all of the Garritan libraries, but I cannot get them to work together. There is nothing wrong with the computer or with the software, just my intellectual inability to get through the techno babble they both use. Add to that the inflexibility of an injury and I have only the Finale and the few instruments that came with ARIA. All-in-all, though, it is a whole lot better than nothing. And I still manage to sell some music.

    In 1965 my alma mater had a full Moog set-up. That "old" system had some tremendous sounds. Keep up the good work, guy. It is appreciated.

    Only 8 tracks? So if you use 32 tracks is it so think you have to use a chainsaw to cut through it? As I'm learning, your usual very full, fat sound. very nice.

    I hate say "this reminds me of..." but whenever I listen to your music it reminds of music I used to listen to quite a bit. I'm going to have to break out all the old albums, from Tangerine Dream and such on up....

    LOL I have those LP's down stairs in boxes.

    This track is straight forward, no real movement or trick harmonies under the main melody or lead. When I start doing the tricks and hiding things under and behind the main tracks the add up very fast and make the mixing a lot more fun because you want to hear them but you don't want to know that they are there.

    Here is a song where I hid some notes and harmonies:

    Re: Night ride

    I'd have to agree with Tom about doing more
    yard work -- smooth, soothing seas in this;
    and a rich, satisfying mix.

    Well done!

    Best,



    David

    Hey Hippie!

    Beautiful combination of synth and orchestral sounds on this track. It's nice to have new "toys" to play with, isn't it?

    Here's a tip for vegetation control in the yard.............
