Back on the Train (blast from the past!)

https://soundcloud.com/dedrokstarz/back-on-the-train-2 Here's a tune I wrote back in the 80s! My partner had just moved out and this creative outlet started spouting all sorts of tunes. So... it's young, not too sophisticated... but part of me. I might do a version with real guitar. The guitar sounds here are from VST plugins. I love to... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

my humble studio

it's getting late and I should be hitting the hay. just wanted to post this pic i took tonight. i was working on "shaft vs bullitt"... pulled out the guitar because, in you didn't guess, the "guitar" in my jammmm session (below) was really a keyboard! there are some pros to doing that, like being...

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... Continue Reading →

Telecaster with FA3 Full, Broomstick Bass, and MDrummer Small – Demo

Well, I didn't go to Church today. Not yet, anyhow. I usually like to catch a 12:10 Mass. The mid-week masses are nice and quiet with just a few people. Really quite monastic. But today I felt compelled to do this demo. It's much the same as the previous one except that I added my... Continue Reading →

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?"). Thanks to Jimi. http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/amplitube/ varietyofsound.wordpress.com/2010/10/25…ease-info/ Related articles VST Guitar demo (mclark.wordpress.com) Good bass guitar VSTi?

Telecaster with Helian FreeAmp3 – Freedom

I was up late last night and paid for it today! After a good, long nap I did this one. An old Bread tune called "Freedom." Free plugin is HELIAN FREEAMP 3. A very nice amp that you can tweak to your heart's content! This sample uses OVERDRIVE, WAH and DELAY. There are three good... Continue Reading →

Stratocaster SoundFont with Amplitube 3 (Infinite Wah)

It's getting late but I'm still awake so decided to do another sample. This time, the Stratocaster SoundFont is combined with Amplitube 3 demo at the "Infinite Wah" setting. Both freeware!

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!... Continue Reading →
