Let me just run my iPhone through the Keith Emerson IR plug-in...add a little humanized quantization, sprinkle in some Melodyne mixolydian and Bam!

Still sounds like crap, need more plug-ins.

A question has been raised : does this have to be an original piece or is a cover ok?

Cover is fine by me - go for it. I thought Jumpeyspyder's Cars was great in the first challenge. Not sure his sanity survived the process, but hey ho ...

:)

Gentle nudge / reminder : we have a week to go. I said the deadline was the 10th, so that gives us a week still and whole weekend / Sunday evening to finish off.

I've had a few entries already - thanks all - and if anyone wants to change anything, that's equally fine. I'm such a forgiving guy!

:)

Anyway, have fun and hopefully in a week or so's time, we can all relax and listen to some top synth choons!

Still working on my ideas for it - I'll get something to you before the 10th though :thumbup:

One wonders what 'a few' entries represents. I know that in sheep farming circles it's about 300 :o

P.S. From the days when my brother and I used to help out in the catching pens on our family holidays in Wales.

!

The excellent Cars cover in OSC1 was ArkieBoy on his Roland VG99
I painfully murdered 'Are Freinds electric?'

Not recorded anything yet - still putting some ideas together, hopefully I'll get the bassline and drum parts done today :)

We're allowed to change things? Oh good, there's a small thing in the mix that has started to bug me, although I suspect nobody else would notice unless I were to point it out! I'd leave it, but I want to tweak the arrangement too.

More electronic cowbell?

You know it makes sense. :D

Struggling here, with lack of inspiration and talent, and negligible keyboard skills....... Trying different approach at the 11th hour but not hopeful :?

Got a great cowbell patch though :D

Thanks for the explanation but...I'm still not sure I understand...

It's worth noting here that Folderol's days of catching pens have never really gone away - as demonstrated by his latest business venture : "Folderol's Organic Free Range Biros Ltd". I think that they just seem happier when I write with mine ....

According to OED "a few" must be more than one but is not many. According to the Discworld Trolls (as opposed to internet Trolls who are a very different and much less pleasant breed) 'many' comes after 2 (Trolls count thus :- one, two, many, many-one, many-two, lots) so a few is, by extension the same as 'a couple' or, in more precise terminology, "two" :thumbup:

This demonstrates how careful we need to be with language, after all "careless talk costs wives" :D

I was hoping to do my short bit on a new synth I ordered before Christmas- which part explains my “count me in” within 10 mins of Dave posting the new challenge. Anyway said synth is still being built I assume, cause it’s not in my studio. So...I went completely left field and re-transcribed and arranged it for another synth which is in my studio. So the motto of this is, a synth in the hand is worth many still in the factory..
