"Thanks for listening and for your input, Douglas! I usually write a poem and try to set it to music. My performance skills are, I know, limited and would much rather just write. Thanks again for being honest and open."

" This isn't bad at all.  People don't really do music like this anymore, it seems.  Though it's not really in that style, the chords and lyrics remind me a little of something Pink Floyd might do with more electric guitar and sweeping…"

"Hi Marvin,
A decent pop/rock tune. Maybe a Neil Young influence? I think it could have benefited from your voice being a little higher in the mix, but it is also ok as is, other than the end, which seems cut off. Thanks for posting!

I'm a simple man who writes simple songs. Is there room for simple songwriters here?

I recently uploaded a couple of videos I made for my original songs. I'm unsure how to go about presenting them for discussion or criticism. I'm taking a chance on this posting - please tell me if I'm being…

I've been away from the forum for quite some time. I'm retired now and have a little more time on my hands and have made some homemade videos to go with my homemade music.This is a song about sharing things on social media and how people can be too…

"I enjoyed listening to your work. I'm still struggling with creating drum tracks. You do very well. I like the ethereal sounds toward the end of "Mental ways" particularly. Symphony 1 - very nice. Suite of dreams - your instrumental choices weave…"

Marvin Cripps replied to Tombo Rombo's discussion What was the first computer music program you used?
"I strictly used the staff view in Cakewalk Pro Audio 7. At that time I Had the Soundblaster Live soundcard which has pretty good soundfonts. I only very recently upgraded to Sonar Home Stusio 7XL with a dedicated midi keyboard. Real time is SO much…"

"Hi Jason,
I've been out of the loop for a while, figuring out how to do things in real time. (eliminating latency). I'm listening to and greatly enjoying Great Bear Rainforest - nice work."

  • thanx for your comments! i'm so glad to have a new experiences from other musicians/composers
  • Hey Marv! I agree with Darel. You're making the hardware and software work for your expression. Please keep the music flowing. It's something that I need to do myself, as I've been away from the forum for a long time as well.
  • Your tools are starting to work for you. I'm glad you're in a music mode. It can only be good for all.
  • I've been away from the forum for some time now. I sliced my left hand open, which required 18 stitches, but left no permanent damage. I've been learning how to do things in real time using soft synths in Sonar Home Studio 7XL and Dimension Pro and a dedicated midi keyboard. I've worked out my latency issues by using ASIO drivers and will post some new stuff soon.
  • thnx so much! very much!
  • Hi Marv, thanks for taking to time to listen and leaving a comment. Appreciated. I'm currently out and about mobile so cannot access the Flash music player to listen to your songs. Will do so at the earliest opportunity though. Thanks again.

  • Thanks for the comment on my page. I've listened to a few of your tracks now and they come across as being very sincere, which isn't always easy to achieve.
  • Hi Marv,
    Thank you for that wonderful compliment. I really enjoyed your music. Especially Northern Lights. It has somewhat of a Native American undertone. Your songs remind me of the 70's group Little River Band. That was a great decade for music. Keep up the great work.
  • No, thank you Marv for listening :)
  • Hey Marv,

    Thanks for stopping by to listen to my work. =)

    Sounds like you're working with a Sound Blaster Live or Audigy? Simple yet still nice sounding synthesizer whatever it is. Your compositions are actually quite enjoyable to listen to. Welcome aboard!

    ~ Jason
