Something happened recently that I personally thought was pretty cool and I reserve the right to be smug. Just a lil' bit. 🙂
It's cool to have fans of your music, no doubt about it. There are people who see my MySpace page and/or music page, hear my stuff, write me, tell me it's cool and so on. I like it every time I get an e-mail about it. Always a good thing.
However, it's super-cool when other pro musicians and industry guys take notice.
Some nice folks over at the Alesis Fusion HD Support Forum took notice of my music and liked the fact that my Piano Power! and Del Rey releases are 100% Fusion based. Shortly after that post I was asked by Hollow Sun (makers of excellent sound libraries) via e-mail if it was okay to use my tunes to exemplify what a Fusion can actually do.
I obviously said yes. I genuinely do like the Alesis Fusion, use it regularly and it was great to be contacted by an industry pro about it who actively works with that synth on a regular basis.
To the musician guys and industry pros on the support forum and Hollow Sun - much thanks. I mean that in the most sincerest way.
I wonder if it would impress anyone if they knew I wrote and recorded all those songs using nothing but a Fusion, earphones (yes, earphones, not headphones), a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop with a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS, Adobe Audition 1.5 and nothing else? Hehe.
And to the musicians who read this, yes it's true, all the tunes are in fact 100% Fusion based using stock sounds that came with it. No external stuff. Straight from Fusion to laptop to Audition 1.5.
