I haven't used KAE for many years, but don't think I have ever used 16 tracks on any recording.  If it could do midi it would be great.

Studio One Free is ok, but being tied to the built in effects is more restrictive than only having 16 tracks.

I wish that Matthias would bring KAE back to life, it would not take that much, besides a Midi modual just fix it to use Reapers VST FX and it would be golden.

I find the 16 track limitation to be quite invigorating.... 8)

General Discussion / Site issues
« on: August 05, 2018, 07:40:29 PM »
Not sure where to post . I thought there was a place for posting issues with the site but I don’t see it .

Anyway it’s not major and I’m not sure it’s the site as it seem ever since iOS 11 and up I had picture display issues .

So in my recent post one thing is the pics load side ways and when I open them it opens in a little box and pic proportion is out of wack . If I zoom I get an error and the page reloads .

I’m wondering if something has to programmed to display right for the newer iOS

I’m going get with Apple to see what the deal is as well .
Thanks .

Guitars / Yeah did it again .
« on: August 05, 2018, 07:14:16 PM »
heres an audio demo of my new MIC guitar by Guild it's a OM-120 orchestra model.

I bought it as a blemished model and the only issues are a crooked tuner and a mis drilled fret marker dot which is hard to see other then that the guitar is perfect .

It's all solid African Mahogany which in this case is Sapele


a few pics

« on: June 08, 2018, 08:37:47 AM »
Still around ? Well yuppers not sure when we’ll here from him but because I missed him along with our other members that have faded into life’s demands I figure we could use a dose of Karm .

So put your seatbelts on and enjoy , maybe drop him a reply on YouTube.😁

Guitars / Guild F55E burst
« on: May 25, 2018, 09:26:57 AM »
Well , I did it again but in my defense I sold my D55 and I wasn’t sure exactly what was going to be next .

I follow Guild lover posted he’s new Guild F55E . I’ve always wanted the Guild F50R ever since I got my F212XlCE ( jumbo 12 string Sitka and mahogany) The F50r is Sitka top and Rosewood back and sides. I wanted a New Hartford built model which was Guilds latest plant and favored as building the best models Guilds to date .

Then Fender sold Guild to Cordoba and closed the NH plant and moved everything to California and after a few years thier up and running .

Used prices were up there on this model and after a bit these guitars just disappeared . Older models became available but every one want mid 2,000 up to 3,500 for 1970 models , geez O’Petes !

Come full circle a NH F50r came up for sale in Canada yeah the only one for sale between the USA and Canada that I could find .

I bought it ! But I use PayPal credit and abuse thier 6 month zero interest zero payments  option but it does not function in Canada yet so sale was a bust .

Kind of a bummer but then said Guild member popped up with NGD post .
With the newly released Guild F55E which is the new F50R .

Ok so his guitar was a demo that the sales Rep used and he bought for 2,500 and he’s review was quite impressive!

My guild lovers had/ have lots of doubts of How these Guilds will turn out .
I expressed my interest in the model and he hooked me up with the same shop and they had another a model available for 3,000 I got for the same 2,500 hundred. The guitar is a sunburst is it perfect being a demo ? Almost lol the burst is a little off center other wise the guitar is mint !

No user wear and the NCL Finish is still off gassing it’s like factory freash .
The case is top of line gator skin and the E designation means electric and it’s sporting a LR BAGGS Anthem pickup system .

This guitars street price is 3,800 hundred do my 2,500 makes it real easy to over look the offset burst but I don’t see it when I play lol

Now this girl is big her lower bout is 17 1/4 inches and her voice is unbelievable. Though Ren Ferguson is no longer with Guild he was there setting up the new plant and he redesigned the bracing along side his coworker and luthier who worked under him .
Ren during the NH years introduced the Orphium line which was his take on what a Guild guitar would have been like if they were in business when Gibson and Martin Started mean the 30’and 40’s .

The Orphiums are designed and built to reflect the tone and build techniques of those eras .

The bracing was a unique design for these compared to all the other guilds and this bracing design with a few tweaks is what’s in the new F55 . Lighter bracing allowing thinner top more vibration and awesome tone .

Now dont get me wrong though the wood is thinner and the bracing is lighter it’s still very strong and there’s a little bracing added in spots that never had it .

Ok enough Sorry I just this stuff 😁
Here a few pics and I’m working on a demo .

Instrumentals / New song
« on: February 17, 2018, 07:20:59 PM »
yeah I still be idle alot but I been pretty low key mentally .
My song writing is equally slow as a result and as I tinker and come up with something I can write into a tune I get stuck on it and wont play anything but that till its done and thats taking time it seems.

anyway this tune is named for my science and space shows I been geeking over . topics like matter and dark matter , anti matter , multi universes and stuff I wondered whats the space between space ?! I know brilliant question right !? hahaha

song is play on my Wilborn Gloria she is by far the finest guitar I ever played and I've not given her enough time maybe because I'm still scared and intimidated by her hahaha

I given up being worried about perfect takes , no thats a lie :( so there the normal boo boo's but if i tried to get it right Id never get the song done .
hope you like and enjoy :)
Hugs everyone .

Instrumentals / A moment In Time
« on: December 21, 2017, 10:05:36 PM »
Hey guys I know I've not been around much, just going crazy I guess LOL
anyway always like for ya to hear a new tune .

I came up with this inbetween recording takes of another tune and when I goof up and delete I get mad and go off on a doodling fest to take my mind off the tune , clear me head so to say and sometimes I get a new tune out of it .

Normal mellowness some goofs ,timing and or stiffness in playing , very delicate piece as to the noting for me and it took way more takes then I can count to have gotten a take this good LOL HULK SMASH !

Collaborations / Here ya go :)
« on: October 05, 2017, 08:11:44 PM »
What I’m asking to humor me in my ponderings

Anyway here’s the deal it’s about team ups and how I think they will turn out and that’s great !

Some might be put off because there is no real challenge but if you like it to be one then the Challenge is working together lol , not that’s its a problem but it’s the music you create that intrigues me !


So you will all write  “A new tune “ TaDa ! Brilliant!!

It can be anything your little hearts desire, Poka , Squre dancing , or a song about upskirting Neil’s kilt .

Understand that the team ups I’ve picked out are not about putting the best talent together but those who I feel will make a good team in respect to each other’s musical style , hopefully you will complement each other and your song is the result we all await .

Ok your partners in crime are as follows

Team duet :)

1) Rk and Neil
2) Onetrack and Way2
3) Joom and Cotton
4) Dino and Jahva
5) PapaG and Red

Last thing on the song part , My hopes are for to take the time needed to put together a good tune and enjoy the process. ;)

Time ? How long do you have ? Good question . BOTB was three months , I don’t want anyone not to have enough time so I figure this has a nice comfort span . If you rip one out faster great if you need more time , you got it just make sure there’s progress .

Ok so there ya go once see your partner you may begin , enjoy :)

Collaborations / An idea 😁
« on: October 01, 2017, 08:03:36 PM »
Hi yup I’m thinking again and we all know what happens when that starts happing .

So this idea I’m thinking is music Tada ! And an experiment of sorts Lol

Ok ? really it’s going to be a basic no challenge per theme thing .

Before I can say more I like to get a even head count of who is interested in just writing a song .

There will be a time limit like BOTB which was what 2-3 months ? But we can discuss that once the numbers of participants are tallied .

So is anyone willing ? just know I will set the most basic of rules and you must bow and Swear fidelity to the great and all powerful cough * hack # me !  (-!)

K so let me know or we just kill this now !  ::-> lol

Challenges / September Challenge
« on: September 02, 2017, 11:47:24 PM »
for the love of or hate of :)

Ok this going to be different for all of us but in essence it's based of my photo challenge many moons ago so thing of it like that if you remember .

I will be listing 4 songs below that yes are something that I like but that's not the point !

The challenge is to give each song a hard core listen ! Hate it or not. Not your cup of tea tough ! lol it's about your openness!

Your free to to listen to the whole album , like I can stop you lol and you can use that as influence but you still to base it off the one song .


Now I completely understand that the bands do not jive with everyone that's the best part so write your new song based off your own interpretation of the selected song .

Your interpretation or perception of the song is what I'm looking for just like a photo:)

Understand ?

Now I myself would like to see everyone get into this the door is wide open as it gets , myself ,  I'd like some extreme creativity and imagination.

Now your song can be in any style you like just make it your own and bonus points if you like add a very short clip of the original song in there :)

Songs are as follows good luck !

Rush


ELP


Genesis


Yes


Look for different versions if need be , lastly enjoy!!!

We'll shoot for the September 29 or more time if needed , any questions just ask .

Start now !!
