How interesting! How lovely to hear where you've come from @pompeyjazz ...

My background is very boring.. Classical piano and harp (yes, really! What an awful waste of time, eh?) up to grade 8 / diploma in my late teens and then nothing for years and years... Apart from the whistle, which I learned as a kid in a completely different setting - all by ear and played in groups... and I carried my trusty tin whistle around Europe as a student and whenever we ran out of beer money, I was sent off to top up our kitty :) That was fun!

Anyways.. some years ago, I took up guitar and started to butcher a few songs with it.. It was (not very subtly) pointed out that I could probably do less damage with a keyboard /piano and so my husband (boyfriend at the time) bought me a digital piano for Xmas... some time later a friend challenged me to write a song - I did so to prove to her that I couldn't (:-)) but that backfired when I discovered that I could in fact write and I haven't looked back since.. It was the start of a therapeutic obsession!

Interestingly (for me at least), my two kids do guitar lessons (note - NOT harp!!).. They do so in a semi-structured fashion in so far as they do exams BUT the emphasis is on playing and playing in bands... NOT sitting in a room alone playing from sheet music...

Chip on shoulder??? Moi?? Never!

Recording / Is it necessary to have a few Plugins that do the same thing?
« Last post by cowparsleyman on October 12, 2019, 09:24:00 PM »
I often wondered about this, Is it justified or necessary to have an selection of plugins that do the same thing? It's all too easy to be sucked into the 'one off' sales and 24hr never-to-be-repeated offer for this channel strip or that Reverb.

Tell me what you think? do you have 10 Reverbs, or 6 channel strips? more Mastering EQ's or compressors than you'll ever use...

Are there some you tried but never use because you tried them but  don't like the way they sound, but are happy to have tried them.

Are there some you can't make head nor tail of, and they have more knobs than you know what to to do with? and you don't have a clue what some of them mean?

Are there some that you definately like but know they are so niche that you can only use them in certain situations.

Are there some that you use and love but you don't know why they sound so good, but always use it, your goto xxxx or yyyy plugin.

Just interested that's all...

@Jambrains - You do have a knack for crafting hooky songs, I especially like the bass.

Tidy arrangement, no nits at all.

Please to hear you work. But you do need to hang up your fuzzfox and spend an evening by the fire removing the studs from your bikers jacket if you continue in this vein @Skub  8)

Only kiddin'
