  1. Thanks Tom. I guess you know what's right for everyone.
  2. Personal Thoughts on Humanization of midi tracks. Can of worms? Probably. A bit of back ground on myself. I played in my own and others bands thru out my teen years into my 30’s. I finally can afford Logic. I am retired. I'm back into making music. During this time I was also learning theory composition, arranging, and songwriting. The Songwriting being my favorite. Now I have time to play. I have logic and other music apps for my Macbook and my iPod. I score all my music, I do not do Classical but Rock. I started sequencing using a Roland MC 101 and a TR909. I wrote everything on Paper then programmed it into the TR 909 and the MC101 synced with Midi. While doing this I was playing in bands. No on to how I feel about humanization. Neither the TR909 or MC101 had humanization. Logic does. I am not a fan. When I score something that is the way I would like it played. If I wanted it played off the notes, etc. I'd play it myself. I think the people hollering about humanization should go ahead with it if that’s what they want. But don’t bitch about the “midi sound†of other peoples work. After years of dealing with “Human Players†I'm Thankful for my machines. Who are at the ready to work don’t show up on cocaine, heroin, various pills and liquors. Actually do show up and are not late, do not have to “Play it their way.†And are capable of playing what I have written. So as for humanization no thank you. Tried it don’t like it. If you like it that’s fine with me I won’t complain about you using it.
  3. I will do that from now on. Thank you .
  4. @ justsoulin : Please let me know where to put this. For just listening no hard critiquing. It just a song I do this for fun.
  5. First My apologies for putting it in the wrong place. I was just putting it up for listening. Where is the proper place to post it? Again I apologize.
  6. https://soundcloud.com/uncle808us/fear Fear ♩= 110 Fear is what some men feel. Fear that's all too real. Sometimes men fear what is true. For the things they do. Verse1 Fear of fire and fear of death Both should cause concern. Smoke alarms and gasoline Scary and they burn. Verse 2 In our great society Lots can make us scared Guns and thugs and angry men Hopefully we're spared. Verse 3 In our fear and in our dread We should show some strength. We should try and fight our fears. Go to any length.
  7. All very good replies and they are appreciated. Thank you all and may inspiration be upon you.
  8. Thanks to all of you guys these are great answers to my questions. I really appreciate it.
  9. Thank you Tom: That was exactly the kind of answer I was looking for. Bob
  10. Sorry to be so confusing. I'd like to hear people's thoughts on either question.
  11. I had a comment on one of my songs it went like this: "I created a song once that started with the chorus, and was told by the dude doing the backing that starting with chorus wasn't done…well I am glad you are like me and actually several other commercial song writers and like to push the boundaries" I'd be happy to hear others thoughts on this. My thoughts are. I usually write the chorus first. Which is the idea for the song. Then write verses to expand on the idea of the song. Then I repeat the chorus as a reminder as to what the song is about. Also usually contains the "Hook". ​ Let me also add that I don't find form that essential. Anything goes. Rules are there to be broken, As displayed by my neighbors who do not bother to pick up their dog's waste, or use leashes. Thanks
