Purple Tongue

I figure I'll post here, since Tyrian purple and less than crisp vocals do not a perspicuous story make. Here I am at the gates of Constantine Dance, dog, dance I believe I can read your mind. I could floor the passing general 'cause I once made hay. Hush the palace priests with what little I pray. ...

Jamendo, if you made a full album to share.

Crashes Reaper, for me.
I should've specified I use it in Music Studio Producer (which costs $£€0 if you want to give it a shot).

Plain songs - the fawmit song is two separate songs (one called half empty and one called half full) played together, one in each ear. it's supposed to be hardpanned and strange sounding. Mmmokay! Yeah I did get the full/empty contrast in the lyrics in each ear, but I was perhaps too bothered by th...

Andre was here at midnight : A nice but a little uneventful song. The lyrics are out of sync here and there, like "these days are kicking my ass" and "there's like ten of them". I know very little about basketball so I may not get everything... It gets more eventful when the ele...

A nice free VST SoundFont player if the popular SFZ doesn't work for you: VSTSynthFont . Its advantage over similar plugins is that by loading one big multi-instrument soundfont file you can use it in up to 16 channels. So you don't need to reload the whole orchestra file for every single-instrument...

free noise filter with spectral subtraction?

Hi folks, Does anyone know a free program or plugin that uses spectral subtraction to remove noise? Music Studio Producer (frieve.com, recommended!) is an excellent free DAW which for me has only two bad points: hardly an English manual, and no good noise filter. There is a noise gate but that doesn...
