man, i thought for sure mr. hat dude was the keyboard player. usually the keyboard player (in the 80's) looked like he just got smuggled out of a chess convention.

as for the new picture, are you sure the photographer wasn't the one using acid?

all kidding aside roy, you seem like a cool guy who has had a fun ride so far. kudos, my friend!

I know where you are coming from Vouts. The keyboard player I jam with has a hat too. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

thats funny, a friend sent me a link to a page displaying hundreds of horrible band photos. it was pretty funny.

i also never realized how many bands shoot band photos in front of brick walls.

This is a work in progress, definitely not finished, but interesting enough to post for now. I'm adding guitars now...

(I deleted this mix since doing a better one a few post up from here... it's called 'Mandolin Summer')

Sounding great Roy. Nice and clean.

What hardware are you using? I'm assuming there's a lot of midi/samples/loops going on in there.

I'm looking to get into that side of things myself soon. Any suggestions on lower priced gear to begin with?

Mark,
The only Midi thing in it right now is the bass(Korg 01R/W sound module), which I'm not sold on yet. I'll probably mix a slap bass with a fretless to make one sound that I'm happy with on that.
But, for drums and percussion these days, I'm using samples I've collected, mostly one-hit samples played by real percussionists. I've become proficient at editing them quickly the way I would want a drummer to play it.
Then other than me on mandolin (such a magical little thing, isn't it?), what's chugging along in the background that SOUNDS like a keyboard, are really samples I've created with my Strat. I'm proud of them, because they sound good even stand-alone. So, used wisely in the background, they can really enhance a piece.
If you decide to explore using the one-hit percussion samples (kick, snare, hats, cyms, rides, etc.), I'll be glad to send you some of the best I've found.
I think this song is GONNA be good, but I'm not there yet.

~Roy
