Updates, ramblings and whatever…

Finally, I’ve started writing my own material…..(gulp)

People have been saying it to me for a few years that I should start writing my own material – well, a month or so ago I started having a go and surprisingly to me, I’ve really enjoyed the process and it seems to be all I want to do at the moment. Hence the radio silence on here for a bit…

To date, I’ve got 7 or 8 tracks on the go – some much better than others and although I think a couple of them are really strong now, I’ve no doubt they will evolve as the vocals come in…

Speaking of which, I’ve got a couple of fantastic singer / songwriters that I’m working with to provide the vocals – I’m really excited and want to tell you all about them but I’ve just got to keep a lid on it for a bit longer.

Anyway, the proof will be in the pudding (as they say) so I don’t want to talk about it too much in case they don’t quite hit the spot….but feedback that I’ve had so far has been very positive so I’ll keep my head down and keep working hard at them.

Watch this space…or shouldn’t that be ‘Listen’ to this space????

Cubase 6…my best mate!

I just thought I’d put up a quick post about some of the software and equipment that I use to do my remixes.

Cubase 6

Cubase 6

Firstly (and most importantly) my best friend is Cubase 6 which is the software (known also as a DAW) that I use to make all my mixes. I originally started out using a free programme called ‘Audacity’ but soon realised I had to make the move to Cubase to progress further.

The things it can do are truly mindblowing and I’m learning new stuff every day – from adding reverb and tremolo right through to composing complex percussion and string  arrangements…Cubase can do the lot…and then some!

So if you’re serious about getting into remixing, I highly recommend Cubase 6…yeah, it’s tough at first but there are plenty of specific forums for it with lots of willing people eager to help when you get stuck!

For more information, check out the offical website:

Stuck in my sickbed….here’s an oldie…

Well since arriving in wonderful Istanbul on Sunday night, I was nothing but ill and stuck in bed. Just my luck! So much so that I had to come home early to go and see my doctor here.

So I’m afraid there ain’t been much creativity over the last 5 days or so, but here’s an oldie from the file marked “Bloody Hell! I’d forgotten I’d done that one”
