Dueling Banjos

I was cruising around the net tonight looking for new sounds, and came across a page where Dueling Banjos was all laid out in MIDI. I only had to add the instruments and mix it a bit. Not able to find a good, free banjo sound, I used ukelele and 12 string guitar instead. Not […]

Compression added to… Telecaster with FA3 Full, Broomstick Bass, and MDrummer Small

I’ve never used compression before. If you haven’t guessed, I’m learning as I go along. This particular compression software (“Density”) was highly touted at bedroomproducersblog.com, and from what I can see so far, I tend to agree. Not sure if I like compression as much as uncompressed. It’s more like a store-bought CD. Whereas uncompressed […]

Telecaster with Amplitube “Clean Wah” and Nasty DLA

Here’s one I did this morning before my nap (see below). Not sure I got the mix right. But it demonstrates the amp and effect. Free plugins are Amplitube 3 (“clean wah”) and Nasty DLA (“201 anyone?”).

VST Guitar demo

I just updated this by reducing the volume 10db and adding a little pitch bend at the end. The cool thing about MIDI is that you can draw in pitch bends via the computer. My musical keyboard doesn’t even have a pitch wheel. Don’t need one, unless I was performing live, which is highly doubtful! […]

Guitar heaven?

Last night I was searching for free VST plugins and came across the most amazing free guitar amp with effects. There’s actually three different versions, all great. You don’t even need a guitar if you use these with a MIDI compatible guitar simulator or sampled guitar. http://rekkerd.org/fretted-synth  (scroll down to FreeAmp download list).
