  1. There's LOTS of great covers by Graham Parker. Here's one:
  2. Yep - that's the absolute best choice! Grab it when it's on sale.
  3. Not quite 12-tone serial stuff, but you might enjoy this FREEBIE. You can generate some really crazy stuff with it: https://www.codefn42.com/transition/index.html
  4. Or he's too busy having a great time now that he knows there are so many great choices for him to explore!
  5. I downloaded the demo and I can usually figure out most programs, but I cannot figure out how this connects to a DAW. It says that it creates a MIDI output by itself, but that ain't enough info for me to get it working. This program needs a manual or a tutorial, otherwise, I give up.
  6. I disagree. I create music for me. It's a process that I enjoy. I'm 67 and I think music keeps my brain and body engaged in a healthy way.
  7. That promo is absolutely hilarious - and it's hard to believe they are serious, but I guess they are, and sadly I guess people fall for it. Some of the things they forgot to mention: We are putting this on the internet, so you know it must be true. Don't worry about the price because soon you'll be rich as people will be buying your music as soon as they hear it. We spent a million dollars creating this product, so you know it's great! All you have to do is press one button to make absolutely incredible music - what could be easier?
  8. If you google FREE VST you will probably come up with a lot of stuff. On this forum you can read this thread:
  9. I grabbed the MDoubleTracker... I'd been waiting for that one to go on sale. You might be saying "Well I could just duplicate a track and pan each one left/right." And you could do that. (And I have done that.) But just demo the MDoubleTracker and you'll see how it very slightly varies the pitch and timing of the track to create a really nice stereo effect. Highly recommended!
  10. EZbass is definitely sending out the key switch info. I will check tonight about the CC messages. Even without using CC data, I am getting pleasing results with the far-superior sounding AmpleSound basses that make it worthwhile even if they don't match the exact articulations of the EZbass instrument.
  11. I have Scaler 2 and Chordjam. Scaler 2 contains a LOT of material with LOTS of different ways to use it. So, if you are looking for something you can play with for many years (and keep finding new stuff in it!), then go with Scaler 2. Chordjam is a fun, learn it in one day, kind of program. And describing it as a generative happy accident finder is an apt description. Want a free, "happy accident" chord progression finder? Try this: https://chordi.co/
  12. I did not try the MIDI output from EZBass with MODO bass, but I had good success with the AmpleSound basses. You just need to translate the EZBass articulations to your VST bass. In AmpleSound, it was just a matter of sliding the EZBass MIDI articulation note up/down to match the MIDI articulation note that AmpleSound uses.
  13. Remove? Not me... I keep everything... and well sorted and organized. I purchased a new computer recently and I have 10TB of M2.SSD storage, so I should be good for awhile.
  14. There's a free program called Sitala that is ideal for creating drum kits using those drum samples. (And that is an INCREDIBLE collection!) https://decomposer.de/sitala/
  15. I'm with Reid. Whether it's EZKeys or EZBass, I would rather use my instruments than the Toontrack instruments. I don't mean to knock the Toontrack instruments, as they are OK - just nothing special... I find my AmpleSound basses and Modartt keys give me a much better sound. I do like the Toontrack environment for creating MIDI tracks and yes, I do like their MIDI packs.
