Late night jams, true pianos and sore shoulders

Cubase Homestudio

I had my next blog item scheduled last Friday. It could have been done. But I made a promise:  I wouldn't release a new song until I'm completely satisfied with it. And I knew I could improve this one. And I'm still doing so!

For some time I've had the idea to do a couple of blog articles on music recording and editing. I didn't thought this would be the right song to do so. (I am still keeping silent about the song title). But it turned out to be a hell of a record. It already costed my over 10 hours of editing.

My last update was the use of a piano VST instrument and drop my pick from the free VST synth, Proteus VX.  This one was recommended by a friend. True Pianos. 
"Get the Diamond Piano" - he said "it's the only one you'll ever need!" 
And he was right. Man this piano sounds so nice. I feel like a real piano player even though I'm just fooling around with this $200,- Casio keyboard.


Look at this:


Now I'll let you hear the difference. I was planning on having just a hiphop/rap like melody. But I think the piano sounds way better!

Yesterday I went over to my dear friend Michael, to ask him his opinion on the record. He had some useful suggestions. Later that night we started a little jam to see if that would invoke some new inspiration! It was a good time nonetheless.



That was that for the update! I'm off editing some more!

  11. I really can't decide, most likely Piano because I don't really like the sound you've got on the keyboard. ;(
