The Ballad of the California Gold Rush

One of my kids did this for a school project with my help. I wish I had done something this cool when I was in middle school.

Re: Back In The Seat - Blues Rock instrumental.

Nice playing! I think the drums are mixed a bit too quiet.

Re: What is Man

This is quite an ambitious project! Hats off to you for pulling it off. I like the overall meaning of the piece, and can really relate to the struggle between science and faith. I come from a family of scientists, and also grew up attending church and studying scripture. Finding a way to reconcile t...

Re: Languor

I agree with "enjoyable" and "unusual." I would also add: pensive, ruminating, ominous, tense. This sounds like midnight music, the soundtrack to insomnia. I like the feedback sound that comes in around 1:30 with the drum beat. I also like the buzzy electric arc sound that repeats many times through...

Re: Still waffling over nearfields

I've got some 3" Mackie CR series monitors, which are a good budget option. Not too big, not too loud, but loud and clear enough to get a good amateur mix. ( https://mackie.com/products/cr-multimedia-monitors ) But I think you are already doing the most important thing, which is to listen to your mi...

Re: Deep editing Ardour regions

I think you can skip the export step and just work on the raw wav file, found in the "interchange" subfolder of the Ardour project. ( https://manual.ardour.org/working-with-sessions/whats-in-a-session/ ) Not sure if you can leave Ardour running while you do the edit in Audacity, but I doubt it. Prob...

Re: Salsa sketch in 7/8

Oh well, ambigous phrasing there , "programming and recording" means the percussion was programmed (loading carla-rack vst into reaper, and the sf2 bank found inside GMSynth.lv2 into that), all the rest are recorded guitars, the rhythmic melody (actually the trigger idea) and the bass line are loop...

Re: No Baby talk

I have not played along to recorded songs yet, is it a good way to learn ? I was thinking about this yesterday to load a recorded song in to Audacity and add enough space before it begins to play so I can walk over and sit on the stool before it begins, I am unsure how to add that space yet. Record...

Re: NGC 1300

Those aliens make some pretty awesome prog rock! I want to go to their concert. :) I like the pitch bending and strange synth sounds here and there. A nice touch. With your life circumstances being as they were at the time, this track probably has a lot of mixed emotions for you. Hopefully things ar...

Re: Salsa sketch in 7/8

That sounds really good for a sampled guitar! I like this tune a lot. It's a lot of fun, and the guitar solo is full of great hooks. Thanks for sharing this!

Re: No Baby talk

No video? I wanted to see this instrument. I think you're getting decent sound out of your drum. Do you play along to recorded songs? Or do you have a friend to play along with?
