Echoes of 'Genesis play Pink Floyd' in there. Good Stuff; will do well. B)

Thank you very much! Have been listening to a fair amount of Floyd recently.

Gotta love class-A valve amps, eh?

I was thinking I could go for an acoustic outside in the garden right about now. The sun must have really started to get to me!

I really didn't think I was gonna get anything done for this month, but I had some free time tonight so pulled my finger out.
I'm not posting yet, as I'm off on Friday, so I hope to pop a vocoder vocal on it (I still can't sing).
I think I've captured a mix of beauty & destruction so far.

Looking forward to listening to the other entries too. :)

Can't get a mic set up to record vocals, so Logic had to help me out.
I've put a kick through a broken speaker emulator, so don't panic.

Here's my entry...

I might actually work on this with the band & see if we can work the arrangement. It's a fun bassline to play (though I've added a synth bass alongside).

Didn't get to it this month, guys. Sorry.
I don't think, therefore I am not...

On with the dance and let the joy be unconfined (whether there's any dance to dance or any joy to unconfine)

I managed to sneak a late one in last month. You might get away with it if you get something together over the weekend. I am on one strike though... :)

I've had a prolific month. I've managed to knock out two more since I did the one for this month's comp. (Here if anyone's interested - also these are NOT entries for the challenge! https://soundcloud.c...ts/insurrection and https://soundcloud.c...ats/dark-forest). Insurrection features my new plugin - Tantra along with Replika XT taking a fairly decent orchestral drum pattern that was played through a Maschine kit and twisting it a tad. Dark Forest was an extended playabout with some Massive synth presets and Ethera.

I also grabbed 4 of Mike Verta's masterclasses on sale. Two on composition and two on orchestration and they're proving to be inspirational.
  • Main bass: Fender Standard Precision (MIM)
  • Other basses: Yamaha TRBX 504, Squier modified VM Jazz: KiOgon wiring loom and Entwistle JBXN pickups
  • MarkBass CMD 121P

Mike Verta's videos are excellent.
