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)

I've had a nasty cold that made me hoarse but today I felt much better and was able to sing!  Not well but I really enjoyed being able to practice at lunch. :)

I suggested to Matthias that he finally close the Kristal forum as it is still a haven for spam that I have to clean up each day. It looks lilke he did it...

I’m making good progress. Got too many tracks but I do have someone on board who I hope that whip it into shape.

As for 3-4 mins restriction, I won’t really know, until the song is finished, as to its length. I guess if it runs over time we can always do a radio edit version. No problem.

I'm making progress too but haven't recorded anything yet. Lots of business travel means I'm only working on lyrics and ideas. We'll see if I get anything when I get home...

I have mine mostly finished now. I need to lay down some bass and finish up the lead guitar part. The drums, vocals, and rhythm are all recorded now.

I got to work quite a bit on my song this weekend.  To be honest, I think it's a interesting idea but a terrible song.  :D  I'm trying to grow as a musician so this song is different that what I normally write.  Believe it or not, it has NO ACOUSTIC GUITAR!!!

I'm trying to learn how to play electric guitar 'leads' and improvise.  I recorded the talking track, the singing track, a simple drum track and a rhythm track.  Then I just played it over and over and over trying to come up some lead guitar parts.  I don't like it yet but I happy with my progress and am learning a lot.  In any event, it's been a lot of fun.

I'm sure it'll be great RJ, as always! As long as you have fun and learn a little, I that's all that matters. I'm looking forward to hearing what you came up with.

My song is pretty long. There's no way I could realistically cut it down. But then, these talking songs often are long. Red Sovine's songs are often 5 minutes long (including Teddy Bear). So, I think it's par for the course. Talking is slower than singing in most instances, even though my song has an upbeat tempo.

Okay, mine is up.  I'd love to edit this some more, but honestly I'm kind of fatigued with it.  It was a lot of fun., but also quite a lot of work.  This is my first attempt at adding some midi sounds (wind-esque sounds).  I'm generally happy, but the vocals could use a re-do.  I'll post up the words soon.

Here are the words for the song I posted:

The Captain Finds Peace
As I lay here, with the ocean calling my name
Waves of green and blue caress my soul
Calm releases my pain
Out on the horizon. A ship glides slowly by
Seagulls call out to me
“Relax and with us you will fly”

The sand is like a coffin, slowly engulfing my soul
The wind is like a symphony, slowly building to a crescendo
I dream of pirates and of captains
I dream of walking the plank
Out into a sea of tranquility
Into her depths I sank

Slowly I sink to the bottom, my feet they find solid ground
A pirate’s fortune awaits me, as slowly I wander around
I listen to the sound of nothing
As quiet as Neptune’s tomb
As light as a feather I stand here
The ocean is the mistress before me
And I’m her unwitting groom

The bright shining sun, seems so far away
Slowly upward I drift, into the light of day
Golden orbs surround me
Skin so browned in the sun
As heavy as an anchor I’m weighted
To this towel, this beach, this fun

Chorus 1:
Spring has sprung in the heartlands
So far away from this lovely place
So far from the beaches and ocean
So close to the quickening pace

My heart does a dance as I lay here
Thinking in a week this will be gone
Gone from my life, but not gone from my heart
She still has a piece of my soul

In another life, I was born a captain
A pirate alone on the sea
A master of the oceans and currents
As happy as a man can be
But in this life, I’m studying Physics
My days are spent in a book
Tequila and coconuts occupy my nights
In my dreams to the ocean I go

Chorus
Sing me a song of the ocean
Sing me a song of the sea
Sing me a rousing rendition
From my pirate’s long pedigree

Sing me a dirge for the water
Of places that I’ll never see
Of ships sailing out on the ocean
Sailing, so far from me

Sing an elegy and lament
For the Captain that never could be
Stuck in a class on a campus
So far from the waves and the sea

Oh Spring Break why do you fool me
Into thinking this ever could be
A poor Kansas boy from the heartlands?
Dreaming of sailing the sea

Five more days. Hopefully you guys will be posting something. It'll suck if there are only two of us this month!

I have had something brewing as I test Bandlab Cakewalk


Only problem I realised is that it is deceptively similar to the Jason Mraz - 93 Million Miles song.    Ouch!!!!. 


I will have to try a different tack.
