... here as planned, will be posted some pics, some sample sounds & mp3-s, music links etc. ...
Freshly smokin´ :
Upper your Volume & turn on speakers! (hope you have a newer Sound card properly with media audio *.mid support installed !, sound in browser & Synth enabled on your volume panel in Win mixer & start dancing the Samba
Here is some adapted Midi well known italian song (63kB) you should be listening it right now (if not check upper note or click refresh in browser), originally sung by Domenico Modugno - (Dimmi) Quando Quando , but just a bit "re-arranged" by my friend "Merio". He owns a small home studio & he was just playing the harmony chords on a GEM General Midi Keyboard Workstation (instrument that plays almost all by itself Btw) & solo made on PC with (Steinberg) Cubase program, merged the stuff & that is what came out! .. .. [well, maybe my friend just took out the demo song from that synthesizer & changed it only a bit ... thanks for info Charles ]
(Better heard with headphones on Creative Audio cards with 8Mb MidiSoundBank enabled (GM Roland GS sounds) [or best-real GM ROLAND Sound Module/Keyboard & sound reinforced!] & on your volume panel in Win mixer effects set under synth: Spatial/Wide, Reverb/On, Chorus/Full ; naturally you have to have DirectX installed to have that & *.mid files sound much better, since they are always recorded "dry" by default!) This effects you get if you do NOT let OS to install drivers by itself but manually later from drivers CD coming together with the card, MoBo or DL-ed from the Net ! Should sound better than this 240kB mp3 sample!
some other zipped Midi songs I like /103kB/ to listen from my archive - Deep Purple_Child In Time, Police_The-Every Breath, Queen-Bohemian Rhapsody, some shuffle-Everybody_needs_somebody & Stevie Wonder-Crazy Superstition ... Btw, I don`t know where I got them from or who made them, probably on computer .. no more need for real band musicians, you just get mp3-s, midi-s & lyrics from the Net, copy that onto FD & pop it into some better Keyboard instrument & push that famous "START" button & here ya go (well you need to learn to sing properly & pretend to play too, if not wanting to get whistled off ..
Damn machines ... all started large scale with that strange ATARI box .. .. no wonder so many unemployed musician all around now...
|Ps.: ... having problems with microphone feedback on band equipment & having some good graphic and/or parametric equalizer? What frequency to kill is faster to know with partial tone-frequency chart other my site ! (open it in new window)|
|. . . There on the right slide is some of my equipment I still own; you can never know when can it be of use & has no sense of selling it for cheap, it is a quality stuff (even still now, after almost 20y later than acquired) ...|
|. . There on the left one, is some of my for decades never finished homemade equipment (around 2/3 done) I still have in the attic box : parts for 12ch mono mixing console with its box skeleton laying on the 80W Rms, also not finished valve guitar amp; since outdated & with missing el.material used also for other projects, IMHO will never be finished anyway ...|
