Two hands, no waiting.

Hi CF,

If someone asked me what was important about 2010 for digital samples I'd really only have one reply: polyphonic legato.

You are probably going to see this couplet bandied around a lot in advertising and marketing this year and I thought it might be useful to explain what it means to us as composers working with virtual instruments.

Firstly a quick recap ... what does it mean to have legato samples? It means that we can create…

A level results and uni

Well I got ABBC in my A level results today! If your not from England then A levels are what you do when your from about 16-18 years old, if you choose to go to college.

Where are you… Continue

Have we become to DAW dependent or is music notation become less relivant in our computer age?

Over the last few months I have noticed a trend in the forums, especially in the music dissection forum. More and more of the comments about music posted here have been more about music production (i.e. sample
