Rowy van Hest replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Commodore 64 track with some attempted grandeur (on request)
"I owned a Commodore 64 once. Can't remember how it sounded. It's that long ago :-) But as I recall the music was usually up tempo. The SID wasn't good enough for slow pieces."

"Better! The SID is a very strange beastie! Keep working on it."

"Thank you for the interesting comments. I had sort of an epiphany about the "sustain" register and also possibly filter tables, and decided to re-edit the track accordingly. It is not perfect, but might be somewhat easier on your…"

Dave Moorman replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Commodore 64 track with some attempted grandeur (on request)
"The SID is a tricky instrument because it is so bloody limited. I don't know much about music or composing, but I have worked with SID quite a bit. One trick I learned is using voices to cover more than one line. In Anticowboy, the drum beat could…"

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to Yoshed's discussion We were elephants
"Dave Moorman said:
I am a C64 fan, and wrote a notation program (I called it a music processor) for the 3 SID voices plus MIDI. I would like to hear your attempt at this great piece in three voices!




I don't want to hijack the thread, so I will…"

Dave Moorman replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Shanty-Fugue in 3.5 parts
"You're right - 3.5 - because the tambourine is never picked up by the other instruments :-) Nice."

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to Yoshed's discussion We were elephants
"Each new chord makes you go wow... and still it is mostly notes from the same scale, but the right notes and chords, according to the appropriate scheme used here... Nice.

Of course the mixing also contributes a big deal to the overall impression.…"

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to Chitpong Kittinaradorn's discussion Just to join a fugue craze here: Fugue in C major
"I liked this piece a lot.

Also, I think it is definitely possible to play on a real piano, although I personally would have to slow down the tempo considerably to do that...

I liked the small, maybe a bit jazzy colourings you did on the basic…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Shanty-Fugue in 3.5 parts
"Yeah, for people like us who are not Bach, fugues can turn into endless improvement projects.  At least, that's what I find in my own fugues.  At some point you just gotta draw the line between "I really wanna fix Yet Another Part here" and "that's…"

"H. S. Teoh said:
I liked it. Very shanty-like indeed.  The only thing is, I wished you had more subject entries in between episodic material. That would have made it more fun, and more interesting to listen to.





Thank you. Yeah, I wanted to…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Romantic piano concerto in one mvmt, with some pop elements
"Finally got round to this again.
I like it!! I think this has improved from the previous version that I heard.  I like the climactic arpeggios you added at N and the chords in mm.125-139, as well as the additional flourishes in the cadenza. Also, I…"

"This was quite a funny idea to me, in a positive way. Nice combination of instruments, and as I understand what you write on your blog about this piece, you did sort of whatever you felt like, with 3 very different sections and a sudden unexpected…"

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Romantic piano concerto in one mvmt, with some pop elements
"The sound file in the opening post has been updated. The low and slow strings are now using another soundfont. It's not production ready audio in any way, but should be somewhat easier on your ears."
