  • A quick reminder for the final weekend that the submission deadline for the current Composition Challenge is midnight 28 February 2018.

    I'm not going to make this one, I started twice on two different ideas and petered out.  Been spending too much time learning dobro and banjo.

    Whoever called it "rush hour" should not be allowed to name anything else.

    I don't think I'll be getting an entry in this time (the first one I've missed I think?)

    You may remember me saying I've been playing guitar less and less over the last year or so, to the extent that my chops were getting really rusty...... and then I get asked to dep for a band! (friends of mine, playing original material) I haven't played a gig for ten years or more so I've been using every spare guitar-playing moment learning to play again, learning a set of 11 original tunes (as the sole guitarist) and generally trying to get 'gig fit'.

    So I haven't really had the time to come up with anything for this challenge. I'll still be listening and voting though. 7 entries is a good turnout.
    A real shame. I enjoy listening to your entries .. always very polished. Good luck with band .. sounds cool. I haven't played live for years .. doubt I could do it now.

  • I can't do it! - I can't miss one after all this time.

    I've been thinking. My original plan was to rework an old unfinished track from years ago (recorded initially on Cubase VST 3.7) but I've not had time to transfer it from 3.7 to my current cutting-edge Cubase SX. :#

    But - I do have a re-mastering of the original backing track with a new* mastering plug-in I have. So the old is the original backing track (part of the instrumentation is samples of an old, long-defunct printer of mine) and the new is the mastering plug-in. Not quite what I had envisioned but it's something. :)

    * new, for me, means six year old freeware.

    That's a pity. What happened. I've always installed the latest updates to Windows 10 and haven't yet had any big issues. Apart from very minor stuff like having to reinstall my audio interface driver and Addictive Drums losing it's licence, which was simple to fix.

  • This happened in the last week to someone I know on SoundCloud. A few days of total computer music meltdown following a major Windows update. Then today, it seems to have 'fixed itself'.

    I seem to have fixed most of it - the problem is I have a 250GB solid state drive and have redirected Windows to drive D for my documents and drive E for my music. Along comes the upgrade and all the paths get changed to look at C. Press the Cubase icon and nothing happens and my NI Komplete ended up in demo mode - that was painful to fix.

    So I have a small amount of time to get something in .. still at least the task is something you've never heard before.

    I've got the bare bones of what I was planning so let's see.

    OK, I'm happy to include it after the deadline (up to the end of the voting process) if you don't mind (potentially) losing a few of the early voters. I always like to hear your entries.

    Although it wasn't a Windows issue, I feel your pain because when NI introduced Native Access I had to edit the registry on my PC to deal with the changes, but fortunately a wise man (link below) bailed me out

    Thanks. I think rules are rules so I'll see if I can get something in by the close.

  • OK.

    Just a reminder that the submission deadline is midnight tonight - 28 February 2018. Although I'll most likely be asleep by then, so I probably won't formally close things until tomorrow morning.

    It's not a competition.

    Great that makes 10 entries.

    Challenge closed. I'll start a new voting thread with the entries soon.
