My new years resolution? Complete one song in 2010. Done!
In the lengthy break between the last song and this one I got a new job and a baby and I don’t have the control over my time that I used to. Anyway, enough about important stuff.
Also since last post I got a copy of Propellerhead’s new audio recording software called Record. It integrates with Reason which was a favorite of mine and now together it might supplant Sonar as my go-to music production app. I always thought Reason had the best synths and sound processing capabilities. It’s only weakness was the inability to record audio and as a guitar player that was a big problem.
Now the problem is solved and the only thing I’ve found I’ve missed from Sonar is the ability to use a different device for input than I’m using for output.
With all that said there’s very little actual recorded audio in this track. There was almost none. As I was working on it I kept trying to add a guitar here and there but no matter how I tried to integrate it it always sounded worse than without. Finally, I did the least imaginative thing I could do, I added a GUITAR SOLO! so rad.
One last thing, this piece has some pretty deep bass on it so please don’t listen to it on a laptop. Use headphones at least – or even a real stereo, if you have one.
