As mentioned last week, here are the first couple of pieces of music that I have written with my new software and hardware. As you may know, I recently bought the East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra sample library as well as a Roland GR-55 guitar synth. There are no synthesised sounds in the following pieces but one happy side-effect of owning a GR-55 means that I can also play synths and samplers located on my Apple Mac Pro, meaning all of the following was played on my guitar! As midi guitar has been such an undeveloped and expensive pursuit, being able to do this is quite a revelation! Please do feel free to leave a comment telling me what you think… (before you mention it though, I do realise I need to tweak the realism a bit more but please do write any tips you may have for me in the comments !).
