[font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif][color=#414141][size=4]I recently sold my venerable Akai DPS16 stand-alone DAW on this very forum, in favour of [/size][/color][url="http://www.reaper.fm/"]Reaper[/url][color=#414141][size=4] recording software. In the process of transferring over the digital audio files that I wanted to save, I found a short instrumental track that I recorded on a Roland VS840 in the early 2000's. The guitar parts were originally put down using the VS840's own amp sims and effects, and sounded somewhat thin; the organ and bass parts were created with a GR30 guitar synth (long gone); and the drum parts came from Alesis SR16 presets.[/size][/color]

[color=#414141][size=4]As a way of learning Reaper, I set about re-recording all the parts as follows. Everything except the drums went through a Roland Quad Capture interface. I realise the bass is low in the mix, but this is very much guitar-driven music.[/size][/color]

[color=#414141][size=4]Drums - MT Power Drum Kit plug-in - amazing value as it is a free download, dead easy to drag and drop patterns into a MIDI track and edit them to taste. If you don't like their kit, you can output the MIDI notes to another module.[/size][/color]

[color=#414141][size=4]Guitar 1 - Gretsch Duo Jet > Cali76 > Deluxe Memory Man > Swart STR > DI via Behringer GI100[/size][/color]
[color=#414141][size=4]Guitar 2 - Strat via same route[/size][/color]

Love it! I'm a fan of Man...or Astroman? and Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, and any modern (and vintage) surf/drag. Great work, thanks for sharing :)
