Strings Patch Drove Me Crazy !!!!

Strings Patch Drove Me Crazy !!!!
Another 2 or 3 hours were spent today in order to achieve only 3 seconds of musical arrangements.

This time it was because a "Strings" patch - sound font - gave me a nasty surprise. I loaded it into Pro Tools and started playing what would be the string arrangement that introduces the chorus. Anyway, I know the chords of the song and have them written down. I was sure that the final chord before the chorus was a "G" major. But after loading the "String Patch", I would click the "G" key on the keyboard, but it would not match the rest of the recorded music. I told myself, maybe I wrote the chords down wrong or something!! But after some tests it became clear that the patch was not right. Then I thought maybe I had unexpectedly pressed some button that lifts the sound by 1 note or changes the pitch by one note... But even after resetting the patch was still playing an A not…

Update 6 on Atish Bezanesh recording. Two hours work for a 3 seconds arrangement. Plus Saw Lead Synth Sound Brings Back Memories


Today it took me 2 hours to create a small guitar/keyboard arrangement that only lasts 3 seconds. However, it sounds super cool.

It is part of my work on my first Farsi song and recording called آتیش بزنش (Bailatela) - romanization: Atish Bezanesh - .

When originally I made my planning, I had optimistically thought that the keyboard arrangements would take me only a week, part-time, to write and record.





However, now it is clear that this takes way longer. I was so naive to think that I would just switch the keyboard and start playing. I forgot that one has to select sounds carefully and then even modify these sounds to make them appropriate for the recording.

Talking about synth sounds, while searching for sounds I stumbled upon the Nice Saw Lead sound which is sort of like the moog sound. I used it for the entire bridge section of the song!!!!!.…

The Puglia Experience : South Italy

The Puglia Experience : South Italy

I finally was able to visit Puglia Italy, though it all started very badly when my backpack containing absolutely everything was stolen in Madrid's Barajas airport, the day I was going to leave for Puglia.

Passport, Id's, credit cards, netbook, keys, camera, wallet, cash... everything was stolen. The police were of no use and wasted precious time taking a written report. Someone saw a guy in his 40's with beard and black shirt take my backpack, but he did it very slowly so the guy that saw it thought he might be a family member or something and didn't say anything. Then the police had his picture and said he was a regular and does it everyday. They take him to court and the judge releases him the next day because there was no bodily harm.

Everyone: Please put a password on your laptop and portable divice RIGHT NOW!!!!!!

Now on to Puglia. It is like the Italian equivalent to Andalucia in Spain.
Here are some pictures.

Update number 4 on the progress of Atish Bezanesh (Bailatela)- Beginning of August 2010



I am working slowly but surely on my first Farsi recording and release called آتیش بزنش (Bailatela). I just returned from a studio where I recorded the vocals. The vocals had to be recorded in a proper studio because only they have those high-end phantom microphones you see in the picture below. The picture was taken during the recording session.



It was too warm in there. The engineer Mike, however was very nice. I got lucky.

The song is expected to be ready mid October 2010.
