  1. Entry to monthly basschat comp using the picture (chosen by last months winner, Douglas), as inspiration. They came with a message, in a form of sound we couldn't comprehend. Luckily a well known basschater called me and said " Nige, I've transcribed the piece and it's actually in 'E' ", with a 12 bar country feel". "Thanks Bilbo, " I said . "That's good coz I can do that stuff" !! Used the trusty tele, t-bird bass and just messed about with amplitude pedals etc. Mt drums kept a check and the diddy lpk25 did some soundy stuff whilst I warbled the vocals. All reapered and that's that !
  2. I'd love to come to the launch, but I'm afraid I'm out that night !!
  3. Entry into this months basschat comp using picture as inspiration. On new laptop this month with very few recording bits or gizmos....guitars by me ( and reaper delay/echo), rest is all free Kontakt. A tree chat is all it is....
  4. So, following the top tips from Douglas last month, I bought an expansion drive and managed to save my 5 years of 'stuff'. Took a while as I got sidetracked and listened to most of it again. Unfortunately, the realisation is that there ain't much improvement !! Anyhow, the good people at Focusrite helped me install the correct driver on my new laptop for the interface. On the downside, all the old authentication codes have been lost on old email addresses. So Ez drummer,Ez keys,guitar rig5, and some orchestration thingy have all been sacked ! The entry this month uses all free Kontakt stuff and the guitar is simply through the interface, with cockos reverb etc. T'is strange, but I never realised how much stuff was in Reaper, and it's refreshing starting all over again...even so far as using the old 'two bob bit effect' on the guitar, (although I couldn't find one, so used a scratchy old plectrum....). Ha, bear with me as I appear to have lost the track !! 😕
  5. A policy I try to follow but, the resistance is ebbing away here. The draw of Noggin the Nog, one of my all time favourite programmes (with Mr Postgates' wonderfull narration), is causing a wobble !!
  6. Voted Some really top sounds people, and a mighty fine collection... (Lurks got 3 points added for the attempt at the local accent, but then lost 2 for putting t'uppeny rice' in me head !!)
  7. We're in, despite the computer problems !! A tad unfinished, but as Douglas often says "less is sometimes more" . Just glad I could save it ,(along with most of the past), hey ho ! Entry into this months basschat comp using the picture chosen by last months winner, (me !!), as inspiration. A change from the norm, using some Garritan orchestra on my little lpk25 keyboard. There's still a tad of Squire guitar, and some freesound noises and that's it. The walk is from the ruined settlement on Shapley Tor and ends in the picture, which is looking SSE from Haytor.
  8. Houston, we've had a problem here !! My old Acer laptop has decided I no longer need a screen or audio to produce any toons. I've managed to get some of the stuff onto an external drive. Unfortunately, when I started this malarky 5 years ago, organisation wasn't (& still isn't!) a strong point. A lot of the licenses are on old deleted e-mails, the dill extensions are all over the shop, blah ,blah,blah. Suffice to say, a new computer has been ordered and we start from scratch. When I find the piece for this month, it will be posted as is !! Happy tooning all ..
  9. Well Lurks and Douglas, you are indeed correct. Even on Dartmoor the heather flowers in Autumn, and yes it is Dartmoor. It's the view looking s'easterly from Hay Tor to be precise, which is 15 minutes by car (10 by Triumph and as long as I like on dirt bike!), from our front door. There's no hidden message (or is there?) in the photo, (ie we won't be out till autumn), just a gentle picture after last months noise !!
  10. Cheers for the comments people...after 5 years, I've finally won one outright 😁 With top tunes all round to boot, I'm really chuffed to have won !! Anyway, before the 'old guard' start hounding me, I'll go find a picure !!
  11. Entry into this months basschat comp, inspired by the picture for this month. Fender squire guitars and t'bird bass (through various guit rig5 settings) and vocals, all me. Incidental sounds from "freesounds", and acknowledged. Ez does drums. Be warned !! No amount of time in isolation can make up for a lack of talent !!
  12. Bravo Douglas !! Despite having the ageing ears of a 12 bar rocker, I really enjoyed listening to that...
  13. Mrs J has just offered, when seeing the picture " well, you want something noisy or very quiet"..... mmmm !!!
