"Storm"
      #218488 - 30/11/05 02:28 PM
Well this track was supposed to be for an Eric Roche tribute CD, but the CD seems rather less than forth-coming, so I thought I'd share my contribution.

Click!

The tune you're after is "Storm".

Do enjoy. If you can!

Nice atmospheric (pardon the pun) piece.

Not a big fan of spoken word works personally... However, i enjoyed listening to it in it's entirety.

Is that you putting on the howling wolf on whisky and cigarettes? It's well produced.

It has got that south american feel to it, so i also get the santana vibe, though this is just as good as his more recent output to these ears... Big praise? No, not really, santana can play, you can play. That was then and this is today.

Love the drums. Programmed is my guess, to some extent at least? Be interested to hear what the drums are from.

On my 3rd listen, really nice vibe going on there, very laidback and just what i need right now after a heavy week.

Thanks. Nice tune.


Also liked the vibe of the other one mastered from cassette, although the vocal is almost non existent, it has a nice raw edge to it.

I also have lot's of stuff on cassette from back in the day, with which, intend to do as you have done. When i can get round to it.

Good to hear your stuff.

Ah yes, the drums!

I originally programmed a naff jazz/blues shuffle on my trusty old HR16 with a view to feeding the MIDI into Cubase and triggering different drum samples.

However, I forgot that as the HR16 is pre-General MIDI, it didn't actually map with the sounds accurately, so I had the kick triggering the ride and so on and so on. However, I loved it! All that I needed to do was manually play a kick into it and I was more than happy with the drum track. It was loads better than the toss I had programmed into the Alesis!

I keep meaning to dabble with this further - it's a cool mix of programming and randomness that could be capable of interesting (and excrutiating!) things.

Thanks for listening, people. Many thanks.
