Hi, I'm Mark from Lanarkshire, Scotland.

FAWM # 6

Songs up until now have been in the box with reason 6.5, 7 then 9.
However, this year I will hopefully be messing with Korg Gadget and Propellerhead Figure on my lunch breaks. Also, I actually bought a synth in November, a Roland JD-Xi. My first synth since the Korg iX300 in 1998. I might do a song, old style, by playing all the parts. Then again...

My experimental musical ramblings will be on another page, showcasing what will probably be the final year of thealphabettisystem

Back in business. Finally got round to getting my rock hands. I can hold my head high again.
Got about 7 in the pipeline.
I have also done a few Korg Gadget instrumentals during a couple of lunch breaks, these will break my semi-complete production rules, but they were fun to make.

I am not going to be able to do what I planned. I got song in various states but no time to complete them to my satisfaction within the 28 day time frame. I should have had a lot more free time now, but work has gone crazy this month. I've had to work weekends and late some nights, which is where I usually get my tracks finished and polished. I'm usually too tired to start anything new. I know I will have little sympathy, as I'm moaning about having to work for a living, but time is required to make music.

As a result I am going to have to break my own rules and stick up a load of incomplete songs and some placeholders.

All done. Lots of placeholders. My new firewall does not like the file hosting site. Can't get into it. So I'm having to bounce thing to drop box and then convert to MP3 on the iPad using the only converter I could find. It takes an age to do 1 song.

Over and out for another year.

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for your comments. To answer your question, this year, for convenience and time reasons, I am exclusively using Chordbot for creating my backing tracks and songwriting assistance. You can also export MIDI files out of it. It has a TON of preset arp sequences, and in the song that you reviewed, I mixed several of them together to see if I could come up with something, er, unique. Again, thank you!

    Hi Mark.
    I have a copy of the lyrics that you had up on your last FAWM (it's a screenshot of the song).
