  • Any multi-instrumentalists?

    I am a farily competent "rhythm" guitarist, can get ideas across on bass, and likewise keyboards. I cannot sing however

      I'm a fairly competent singer (I think, but this is very subjective matter), play a little bit of keys and guitar, and of course drums and some percussion. I do my best to record multi-wise. Working on a song this weekend that I've got some ideas for. I'll let you know if it ever gets posted.

      I posted this a while back -take a listen: www.kevingilbert.com/FromHereToThereBlades.mp3
      Just a cover I did recently...no vdrums, but interesting nonetheless.

        Put me down for keyboards and back-up vocals.

        p.s. Just remembered, I can play Cream's Spoonful on a bass guitar. Does that count?

          I can play bass and keys. I just wish I had a few extra arms

            Hey brick, I like the characteristics of your voice. You have a good midrange, even some highs going for you . Most male singers have a more limited and deeper range than you, methinks. Stupid (covertune) lyrics, I think you'll admit. But keep singing, quit (J/K)drumming, & refine that voice, laddy!

                A few years ago I played the trumper for about 3 years, I've played keyboards for 2 years or something(maybe I'll start doing that again) and I play the drums for like 3 years now...

                wanna play the bassguitar too
                Music was my first love...

                  Do people ever get a few people together and exchange WAV files back and forth and do multitracking?

                  What I mean for example... a drummer makes a track... sends it to a guitarist who adds something. .sends it to the bassit. .etc..

                  anyone ever do something like thaT?

                        I plays a damn good sweet tater harp, can cover on the jug and warsh board if need be.

                        No really, I'm a pretty competent bass player (Steve Harris kicks butt in my book). Trained in mallet also, but its been awhile. Tried to sing once too .

                            Bonus round, glad to hear it, everyone.

                            Redbrick, I heard the song when you originally posted it; I think I posted something, but if I didn't:
                            -it's a really cool song
                            -great voice
                            -production is rockin'! (I love how the percussion sounds so distant)

                            Beatnik, yes yes, Steve kicks ass, and Geddy too!

                              Hi all:

                              Two things --

                              1. I play keys, make soundscapes/treatments and sing, but (v-)drums are my true passion! Check the thread in the Suggestions section on "Anyone really using MIDI" to see details on how I'm using the v-drums to trigger images, animations and video in real time onstage.

                              2. >>Do people ever get a few people together and exchange WAV files back and forth and do multitracking? What I mean for example... a drummer makes a track... sends it to a guitarist who adds something. .sends it to the bassit. .etc.. anyone ever do something like thaT?<<

                              I've been collaborating with Will Sergeant of Echo & the Bunnymen for some time, also with Colin Newman of Wire from time to time. He's in the UK and I'm in Boston. We send 128-bit stereo MP3s back and forth, unpack them to AIFs, drop them into a sequencer and go from there.

                              I had been sending tightly edited drum loops in this fashion, but we've discovered that since MP3 is a lossy compressor, it nicks a few crucial nanoseconds off the file, rendering it useless as a loop. So this technique only works for complete works. For loops, we're relegated to AIF and Stuffit (or WAV and ZIP, depending on your religion).

                              best,
                              FBC
