Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

I'm another from the class of '03, my first being "So Aggravating". It gets hazy after that...

The friendships that have come out of this place are priceless.
The music that has come out of this place is insane!
You all rock and I'm very grateful.
Thank you Songfight!

Re: Song Fight Live Online 2020

Yes!!!! I watch a lot of the "Socially Distant Fest" on Facebook (one of the only reasons I use FB now) and they're great. Mostly all live but many playing with backing tracks. We could use any combination including pre-recorded videos, with someone playing MC (...we know who that is!) between each ...

Re: You can't restart if you don't (Shutdown reviews.)

Seriously, Sober, that is deeply intense. My mom died Dec 28 in a VT nursing home at 92. They had specialists in dementia and were otherwise insanely attentive. I was there the week before, though she didn't know who we were. Weird to say, but I'm glad she didn't have to live through this. And I'm g...

Re: Have you tried (Shutdown prefight)

roymond dragged Mo into the muck this week. Thanks for the sonics, Mo!

I am so rusty production-wise, this took forever and I wish it could be better. NEXT TIME!

years will fly - if you let them
everybody stay on course
if it ends - and it might

- before C-nineteen 
- before the end (listen)

don’t let it shut down
and don’t pretend it won’t
I didn’t want a shutdown

Re: Focusrite Scarlett audio interfaces

I've got an old version of the Scarlett 2i2, which i bought a long time ago and like Sam said, it just works great. I use it with a Presonus tube pre-amp. Perfect for my simple setup these days.

Tools for composing and synching a soundtrack to video

What do people here use for this? I am doing a project where the video is done.
I'm composing music to the video, which needs to be perfectly aligned with various visual aspects in the video. So if my timeline is running, I need to be frame-accurate.
Any suggestions welcome.

Ok, if anything is happening and planes are flying, I’ll try to be there. Especially if I get work, as next week may be my last billable hours for a while.

Corona Chord at Sunset

Today, I'm starting something called the Corona Chord at Sunset . It happens daily at local sunset time . Not so much a performance as a meditation, it is an ambient collaboration from our homes, no matter who takes part. The Corona Chord is a Cmaj9 : C - E - G - B - D ... -> each player broadcasts ...

Inspiring Instruments

I thought there was a thread like this but maybe that was too many generations ago...

These sounds don't mean "horror" to me, I rather like them. But with imagery, almost anything can sound evil.

Re: Song Fight! Live #20 in 2020 for Song Fight! 20th anniversary SF

I encourage avoiding August. I'm happy to see you posting here again. But ... vague cryptic statements like that are not really super duper helpful. Could you maybe provide some details behind why you would say that? Is it due to conflicts with your own plans that month? Or do you know something ab...

Re: Awesome Music (related) Videos

Space exploration and volcanoes are top of my list of passive fascinations.
From this past weekend, this is inspiring...sad...hot!



Had she entered Nur Ein's 3:20/Ambiance challenge, that would have been amazing!
OK, she would have been a little late. And the song went to 3:30...
