  1. Hmmm... maybe I'll give that a shot. Thanks...
  2. I wrote the chord progression and the melody first quite awhile ago. A friend asked me to create something for a singer demo he was working on. He didn't like it. <grin> Which was cool. But I kinda shelved it for a long time. Then I got a new drum machine and started playing with that. I wrote a completely different song around the rhythm arrangement. Which I then decided I didn't like. <grin again...> Then I wondered if the keyboard loop I created earlier and the drum loop would work together. It didn't. But it gave me ideas. A lot of the comments here have convinced me to rework it again. So maybe I'll have an update to post here soon. One thing I learned awhile back is if you ever find yourself in the studio not feeling particularly inspired. You should use that time to do what I call 'music administrivia' Things like build a templates in Cbb to ease you workflow or read a manual for that piece of gear can really make the time when you do feel creative a lot more productive. So I guess as for process as 'garybrun' just mentioned we "all paint different pictures"... For me I have to be pretty organized so when I'm writing the technical stuff doesn't get in the way. That kind of stuff drives me absolutely crazy... 😉
  3. Excellent suggestions! Thanks. As for the compression I've got this LA2A vst I'm enamored with so yes I tend to dial that sucker too far at times. As mentioned I need constant adult supervision! 😉
  4. LOL! Thanks... Definitely agree on the thin lead tone and lack of bass. But would it be weird to change it after so many have already heard it this way? I dunno probably just the way my twisted brain works! Maybe I should give it a shot...
  5. Awesome tune! Great lyrics, vocals and mix! Tonally maybe a tiny bit shrill at times.
  6. Thanks jwnicholson78! I started getting a little better at this when I stopped trying to mimic my idols and just play what I feel. I still think some of my ideas on the 'keys' are unsophisticated. But for now its just I chance I take. Maybe folks won't will giggle at me too much... 😁
  7. I'd love to see an approach here where users could 'roll your own' controller definitions. Sorta like the instrument definitions we have now.
  8. Hmmm I'm having the same issue with my LX88. Looking at the dates of these posts it seems like the problems started around the same times as well. Makes me this the root cause might have been a Windows update. I'm considering removing the USB driver all together and using the MIDI DIN out instead. BTW When I first got my LX88 it worked fine....
  9. Wow, sorry I'm so late catching up to the comments here. It's been a busy few weeks. Thanks all. I agree with all the comments here although I thought I made the percussion track a little too hot with this one. Every time I get a new piece of gear I get all excited and overdo it. 😉 This time its the TR8S. I really need constant 'adult' supervision! 🙂
  10. Well recorded. Great arrangement and mix...
  11. Having the same problem with my LX88+. Initially the transport buttons worked fine. I'm not sure if it was a Cbb update or some other cause. But the transport buttons no longer work. Interestingly... If I record enable a midi track, and start recording. I can see events recorded to the track.
  12. Yeah, I know... I'm lazy... I want to just hit the F3 key and turn the count-in off then on... etc....
  13. Thanks fossile, yeah I saw that. But the other page looked like you could configure it and bind certain actions to controller messages. Like say controller 11 for 'Record Arm' etc....
  14. I found this topic in the knowledge-base. It would appear that you can create a generic or custom controller. But I can't seem to find this feature in CbB. Has this been removed? Or just secretly hidden somewhere?.... https://www.cakewalk.com/Support/Knowledge-Base/2007013035/Setting-Up-a-MIDI-Device-as-a-Control-Surface-in-SONAR
