    Hi, Tom!

    Sorry this has taken so long. I've been trying to rebuild the brains on my computer and it's going much slower than anticipated. However, I managed to get the files you wanted. There was some problem rebuilding my VSTs and this may not be exactly as in the posted demo but it should be close. I'm including the wet vocal, the dry vocal, and a copy of the rearranged backing track. You should be able to drop the backing track and wet vocal into a project file to get a close approximation to the demo to use as a guide for putting things together. If you want to mess around with the dry vocal with a different pile of spices please feel free to do so.

  • @postcardhelicopters  Mar 23

    Sure thing!

    The computer crashed a couple weeks ago and I'm rebuilding everything so it might take a couple more days. I'll put it on the server and drop a link for ya when it's ready to go.

  • @ustaknow Mar 11

    Yes, I get that, - I was fortunate to sit across from one or two real singers; and, it's like you never heard anyone sing before, - it's so different, or maybe it's just real πŸ˜€ (real singing, it's own instrument, so to speak).

  • @elainedimasi  Mar 1

    And you got the week 3 challenge as well.
    /* speechless, which doesn't usually happen */

  • @fuzzy  Feb 29

    Thanx for the rokkin tunes this February!
    Your songs are always a highlight!

  • @zecoop  Feb 28

    Hmmmmmm........ Reaches over to box in studio with over 25 power supplies and tosses it over. Just don't use the Yamaha ones - they are center opposite. πŸ˜‰

  • @zecoop  Feb 28

    But but but.... that CZ! You were gonna.... <sigh>

  • @brandondale72  Feb 28

    Thanks for your pleasantries on my song, β€œMichigan”.

  • @zecoop  Feb 27

    I'll get back to the songs in a sec, but was just looking for a casio tag on your page.............. Hoping to hear that song. πŸ˜‰

  • @elainedimasi  Feb 27


  • @elainedimasi  Feb 25

    Congrats on the win! ; - )

    Strictly speaking I should come up with 3 more things this week (+ the 2 that are with their mix-masters atm), and count the two instances of "Hollow" as my leap year song and a half.

    Hoping to wrap it early and have time to listen to more of others before feb is even over!

  • @postcardhelicopters  Feb 24

    "It's Alive!"

    This was a lot of fun. Thanks, Tom!

  • @postcardhelicopters  Feb 24

    I.. um.. *did* something with "toms has No Idea".

    Whatcha think? Post or Pass?

    P.S. I was bothered by the way one bit of lyric flowed in that version so I did a quick re-take and will swap that out, shortly.

    ...aaaand done.

  • @candle  Feb 23

    Hey Toms, thank you for all your great comments. As for Jeskola Buzz, that depends. It's a Tracker and not a traditional DAW, so if you're unfamiliar with the way Trackers work, the learning curve could be a little steep. If you've ever worked with samplers & sequencers that might help as Trackers are essentially complex sequencers. Buzz is a little different than traditional trackers in that it uses "Machines" that you can wire any which way you want. It uses tracker-like sequencing to program those Machines. You can check it out at There is a forum where a small community of users & developers hang out (I've been rather absent from the forum for about a year) who are really friendly and helpful with troubleshooting problems & ideas. If you have any questions regarding Buzz, don't hesitate to ask me.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @mlm Feb 18

    Hi! Thank you for your comment on my track! I really appreciate it!

  • @tomslatter Feb 18

    Thanks for the comment on Racing Gravity. Much appreciated. The verse chords are: E add9, Gmaj7, Dmaj7, Dm.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 17

    Thanks for your comment on our Lovecraftian dark opera.
    There were actually five vocal tracks, all with different effects. I find I can get some good synergy that way. πŸ˜€

  • @barbara  Feb 15

    I know. Be the flood. The really big effing flood. No other choice. Unless you know a lightning bolt we can enlist...

  • @barbara  Feb 15

    I’m on a first name basis with Death. β€˜Direct’ is how we roll.
    Thanks for commenting!

  • @uonfsofficial Feb 15

    Thank you for your kind words on our national anthem!

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Feb 14

    Thanks for your kind comment on What Took You So Long. My first FAWM and first attempt at songwriting proper, and the encouragement here is soul warming.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 14

    Thanx for the comment on "The Horrors of Perversion".
    The film is "Perversion for Profit" from 1965. πŸ˜€

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 12

    I know, right? JCC is still touring, and still great; he's Dr Clarke now. Does all sorts of interesting stuff, including a TV documentary in 2015 about Thomas de Quincey's opium habit!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 10

    @toms Secretly, I AM ok at SOME first person shooter games.
    I have even one a few Fortnite matches (when it first came out). Now your average seven year old could probably destroy me.

    I beat and got a platinum trophy for the latest Doom game. That was pretty challenging. πŸ˜€

  • @resonut123 Feb 8

    Hi Tom, thanks for the comment on Detroit Boogie. The harmonica on that song was recorded: thru a Red Howler microphone thru a DOD Supra Distortion light-medium distortion and Plate Reverb from my Fostex DAW.

  • @phoenixash Feb 2020

    Thanks for your comment on my track with Fuzzy

  • @spikedirection Feb 2020

    Yeah that's the dude! Looks like you're from round there too! Awesome, clearly there's nothing like having the right geographic credentials.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 2020

    Hey bud, I'm really having a hard time listening to your tunes; my laptop doesn't want to play them!
    I'm assuming that this is my problem, not yours....

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 2020

    Ha, relaxed chaos is my groooove!! πŸ˜‚ (thanks for commenting!)

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 2020

    @toms Supergrass are a band! Biggest hit was probably this one:

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 2020

    Hey @toms thanks for your comment on Instruction Manual! Maybe don't go to the first track.... er........... it's pretty intense!

  • @barbara  Feb 2020

    Pun restraint, to a surprising degree, given that they did rightly ooze. πŸ˜€

    Chris Bell & Big Star... not familiar at all. Thanks for the tipoff to some new old music.

  • @resonut123 Feb 2020

    Say hi to Johnny Tremolo for me!

  • @timfatchen  Feb 2020

    Hup hup! Move along there! Thanks for the comment on the Turdishness, Tom. We're just awaiting on your first sounds!

  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    Be sure to tune up the ol' 55. Or maybe DON'T tune it up - perhaps that was the key to the sound. πŸ˜‰

  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    Guaranteed to be a classic... πŸ˜‰

  • @klaus  Jan 2020

    Hi Tom. I like your influences. πŸ˜€ Have a great Fawm 2020.

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 2020

    I've got an idea.

  • @sapient  Jan 2020

    I love how that story you posted on my page had the (possibly?) unintended effect of making me drool over your guitar collection in its totality 😁
    That Chinese Gretsch does sound awesome. Just shows you that it's not the price, but the playability that matters most!

  • @adnama17  Jan 2020

    PROF!!! Send me a million backing tracks promptly at 12:01 a.m. 02.01.2020. Capice?

  • @metalfoot  Jan 2020

    Fair enough. So long as you know *WHY* I'd like one, beyond how it sounds. LOL

    I would love to try out a Double Agent, actually.

  • @leslie  Jan 2020

    Can't wait to listen to the riffs you bring to the FAWMstage this year! I love what you do. Have a rocking FAWM.

  • @tiller2  Jan 2020

    Great mic find! I naturally thought about flipping the Vibrolux, but realized I would probably never justify buying a big vintage Fender.

  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    Not sure when I'll be over in the Owosso/Flint vicinity next so you must now write something with it. We can talk later if it will be rehomed. πŸ˜‰

  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    Not trying to poach your prized keyboards!! I have the greatest confidence that you could have great success composing with it. 😁

  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    And the CZ-1000 is legit!!! I'm always on the lookout for a CZ. Plenty of fun to be had with the cheapest of the cheap too, though... πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    Guitar pedals... I'm tellin' ya!!

  • @downburst  Jan 2020

    Not your fault! But I hope things are going better.

  • @headfirstonly  Jan 2020

    Hugely looking forwards to hearing you bring the tone once more, sir.

  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    Here we go... Looking forward to being inspired by you again. πŸ˜€

  • @johncrossman  Jan 2020

    Your world of guitar wizardry and ampery is mostly a mystery, but I still like to let it splash over me. Bring on the buckets o' sound!

  • @downburst  Jan 2020

    Hey Tom. Welcome back! I miss your company.

  • @andygetch  Jan 2020

    Hey he, hellllloooooooo (how did Westerberg miss that one?)!

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2020

    Hey Tom! It’s good to see you back around the forums. I always enjoy your music and personality around here. I hope that you are well.

  • @tsunamidaily  Jan 2020

    have the best FAWM this year!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2020

    Let's go!!

  • @sph  Jan 2020

    In 79 a radio shop closed its record department: i bought my first two albums (Queen "Jazz", ELO "Discovery" and 3 singles by Kiss) 😁
    Those were the days...
