    So Far We're So Far Away

    This is a song I posted last summer. It's supposed to be a title song to a James Bond-type movie. I tried to write in that style, and the mix has (for me) some fairly heavy reverb. I don't like it much, I'm just trying to finish it. Anyway, this mix has a retracked rhythm guitar with less...

    Old Cakewalk backups

    I use Reaper now, but years ago I used Sonar (v4 I think). I have old backups from back when you had to do them thru bundles. I'd like to restore a couple of them. But Sonar v4 won't install on any Windows version past XP. I can't get at the WAV files because they're in the bundle. Does...

    So Far We're So Far Away

    A while back I wanted to write a "James Bond type" song. This is that. The kind of song that plays over the opening credits of a Bond movie. But like the classic 60's Sean Connery movies. Like Thunderball or something. So there is a lot of reverb on this (for me anyway). As the...

    My Friend Ben

    Please let me know what you think about this mix. I wrote this song a long time ago - late 90's or early 00's. It's a silly song about Ben Franklin and 3 semi-fictitious conversations with other founding fathers. Then that Hamilton play came out and now it looks like I copied that. Grrrr...

    Starving Vegan #2

    A new mix of a song I put up a couple of weeks ago. I retracked the main crunch guitar because I didn't really like the old tone all that well. I retracked the bass because it was too busy in spots. I retracked the guitar riff because it was too busy too. The lead vocal is mixed differently...

    The Starving Vegan Rescue Squad

    Please let me know what you think. My typical power/pop mix. IBB was kind enough to do the drums and did an excellent job. Mix #1: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7xjj5mxxt0opf8q/StarvingVegan1.mp3?dl=0

    My Freaky Lawyer Part #2

    This is a song I put up about a year ago. The vocals (lead and backing) are retracked and the crunch guitars are retracked. Everything is remixed. If you remember (or even if you don't remember) RAMI played the drums on this. Well. I think this is an improvement over the previous mix. Let...

    Factory Joe

    Probably nobody will recognize this tune. I posted it years ago. I used to collab a lot with a guy who went by the name of Village Idiot here and TheCrappyBeatle on another site. He was a great guy. I've lost touch with him over the years. Anyway, we did this tune a long time ago. We...

    Drummers and/or Fake drummers?

    Are any drummers out there up for a collab? I've bothered a couple of you before (you know who you are), and I hate to keep bothering the same people. If any drummer out there wants to collab, let me know. Including the one's I've bugged before. :) Alternatively, I may need to resort to...

    Anyone upgraded to Reaper v5?

    I've been using/upgrading Reaper v4 for a while now. I think I'm up to v4.78. I know v5 is out, and I think it even has a patch out. But I'm usually cautious on major version changes. Has anyone installed Reaper v5.x?? Any problems?

    How do you get this "effect"

    Here is a link to a Fountains of Wayne song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDaywS37fWE They have an effect - sort of a phaser sound I guess - that I'd like to use. It hits right on the first chord of the song, as well as other spots in the song. I was wondering how to get it. I have...

    Bass thru a guitar amp

    I wanted to plug my bass guitar into my Mesa Mark IV amp just to see what sounds I get. No real reason, just curious and want to experiment. Is there anything I need to worry about or be careful of? Any chance of causing damage to the amp?

    What I Want (reprise)

    A couple of months ago, I had a computer blowout. I ended up replacing not only the computer, but the converters and software as well. I switched to Reaper. This is the first mix I completed with it. I posted the tune before, but this mix is a bit different. New guitars. The vocals are...

    AD/DA Converters

    This is a follow-on to my other thread of woe in this forum. So my old XP machine died and I'm going to need something new. I still have a Great River preamp that I like and still want to use. I have a Delta 44 that I used for AD conversion. I also used the Delta for playback - the outputs...

    Do Dell's Come With PCI Slots?

    The hard drive on my old Dell went out last night. Couldn't reinstall Windows. It wouldn't even format (sat at 0% for an hour). The PC is old and it's time to buy a new one. But I have my Delta 44 sound card that I like and want to continue to use. I've always liked Dell's for recording, so...
