I had my first gig last night! Instead of collecting tips for me, I decided to make it a fundraiser.  We collected $383.25 for the local food bank!   :D

I found changing the velocity in Reason a little fiddly for my taste....but the overall SOUND of the instruments was outstanding!

Hey agr, I tried out the full version of Reason last year, but I like more control over the patterns. For my workflow I like Groove Monkee & Odd Grooves to lay down a root feel, then I go back in 90% of the time & tweak....add a ghost snare hit here, a cymbal there, etc. I found changing the velocit

JULY 2018 ODC - Summertime, and the livin' is.....??
« on: July 03, 2018, 11:57:26 PM »
Right, you 'orrible lot  :P

Since we're already creeping up on the fourth of July already, AND we have a BOTB going on, AND it's summer, AND people are up to their ears in real life..... it's time for a nice quick and easy ODC  ;D

Of course it's soooooo easy AND obvious.....

Summer..... how about you write us a nice upbeat summery song?

Think Bon Jovi's "99 in the shade"....think anything Beach Boys..... think Zac Brown "Toes In The Sand"......think about something you'd blast on the beach....some kind of beachy, party, summery song  ;D

Gotta be light and bopping...... no serious stuff....got to be FUN!!!

Bonus turnips for mentioning beer!!

Any style (even country :P ), any length, any method (loops, samples, John Deere parts, power tools....)....instrumentals welcome.... in fact nothing says beach party more than something you'd hear in an Ibiza nightclub....

Must be new track starting ......NOW......and must be posted to the SC account by 11.59PM 27th July 2018.

If you don't get one in...you will automatically be volunteered for tallyman duty......voting should commence July 28th and close July 31st if we can.....

Let's go!!!!

Hot town, summer in the city
Only got 24 days, isn't that a pity
Right now, think I'm sitting pretty
Gotta see if I can write this little ditty

All around, people thinking let's go
Write a summer tune they'll want to play on the radio

My wife is out of town and when I was talking with her on the phone last night, we started discussing a few of the projects we have going on around the house. She told me to be sure to spend some time on this month's challenge song, too.  Ha!
