New Album - Snapshots of an ordinary life - VG99
« on: January 24, 2017, 12:42:25 AM »
It took me two years after the incident that gave me bad Tinnitus but I did again, although at a lower volume.. ;)!
Due to this some mix might not be perfect but the fun and joy of making music again made me very happy.

I'd call it Instrumental Moods.

VG99 with Gtr to MIDI enabled plus keyboards (you can easy tell the difference) and acoustic guitar. I have used my second guitar LDT ST-213 with no GK with VG99 for some solo parts.

Thanks for listening.

Wow! I listened to the whole album on my way to work this morning.

It's a fantastic collection of composition and musicianship. Wonderfully crafted.

To my ear (and the car's speaker system) the mix sounded excellent, with instruments well placed and distinctive.

Did you play the percussion parts with a MIDI controller or were they loops (or both)?

Great album. Thanks for sharing.

Nicely done - in some sections reminscent of Patrick O'Hearn in mood and production.  Very nice!

Fantastic achievement. Many times I've thought i should try and put an album of tracks together and it takes sheer grit and determination to keep on keeping on so hats off.

Plus......it's really good!

Absolutely excellent work!  A lot of what I hear coming from folks with all this guitar gear doesn't appeal to me as something to listen to as melodic music.  This is refreshing, showing how musical it all can be in the right hands.

Gary, thanks for listening and for your comments!
All that's drums & percussions comes from loops I have purchased plus some modifications here and there. No dedicated controller except some rolls and breaks where I have used a MIDI Keyboard plus direct editing.

You should try yourself. I guess it will be good as well. :-)

Thank you! Any emotion felt because of my music it's worth the effort I put in it. I am not able to play fast as I'd like so I follow my heart and inspiration, that's why your comments are even too much good! :)

Even if I played guitar since I was a kid, When I started my first group many years ago I played Bass guitar then after 7 years back to Guitar. Due to that I can play both instruments. The bass in every track it's a Cort Curbow, 4 strings, with a pre amp with two positions, EQ ON and EQ OFF. With EQ Off the sound it's punched clear and full tone which is the one I used, then in the DAW (Ableton Live) at mix time. Recording with EQ off gives me more option at mix time. There's a slight compression/expander in the bass track.

Hope it helps

It sounds great. I was hoping it was some magic patch in the VG 99. Love your stuff. Thanks for the response.

Thanks. I use VG99 with the Bass as well, when I want an Octaver and/or a Bass Amp sound but that is no magic patch.
