Re: Flower Waltz

Tony, That is a very busy piece! And with the syncopation you have put into it I had difficulty even finding a 'one, two, three'. But with that straight 'waltz beat' in the middle I did finally get the hang of it. You must have had at least 50 multitrack sheets to put into this one. Very interesting...

Re: Fanfare

Tony, Interesting! I suppose this is similar to playing in an orchestra. Every instrument has it's own 'part' to play. So each instrument does it's own thing, but not as in being played separately (ie. multi-tracked), but all playing together at the same time. Couldn't do that on an organ/keyboard a...

Re: Fools Rush In

Charles, What always fascinates me is how a song can be arranged in different ways. Your piece is very smooth and relaxing, and the style you have played it in is very much in the style of the era in which it was written, the 1940s. Then you have Elvis Presley putting his inimitable style on it in 1...

Re: Colors of the wind.

Hi George, It last. Another piece on a Genos played by a real Member! It certainly sounds completely different to other pieces you have played. A more intricate arrangement is the best way of describing it. You have certainly brought out the best in this instrument. That was a beautiful ending too. ...

Re: Once Upon a Time in the West

Hi Dave, That is a very smooth performance. Loved the voicing. The chimes at the beginning were great, with a good 'sustain' on them. A very dramatic entry with the 'horns' in the middle. The 'strings' are some of the best I have heard on any organ. You must have really enjoyed putting this arrangem...

Re: O Come all ye Faithful (classic Style)

Just before Christmas Bronwyn and I did a train trip up to Lincoln with a visit to the Christmas Market included, but it was so busy we went to Lincoln Cathedral instead. Sitting in the choir stalls, I picked up two hymn books with music, which were obviously the ones the choir used. One was Hymns A...

Re: Fanfare

Tony .. Your piece certainly deserves a comment! The stereo separation is amazing, and even the drumbeats follow a stereo separation. Did you multitrack from a music score? Or did you just add the bits in as you went along, 'by ear'? Anyway, it's a great piece. Brian .. Ajay mentions that he has us...

Re: LayR Multi Timbral Synthesizer Demo for the iPad

I am really looking forward to you using some of these iPad sounds in your music. If you have an iPhone 6 then you might have to increase the Tempo of the pieces you play as Apple have been 'slowing down' their older iPhones?

Brian, When you said, "Three chords" I thought they were going to be eg. C, F and G! But one of them is a very prominent 'minor' chord which makes it different from the start (and at the start). Listening to some of these pieces you have put up recently, and knowing you played in a band in...

Re: Charmaine.

Hi George,

Your T5 certainly has some great backings for just about anything. You have some interesting voices here (apart from 'strings', which is what we'd expect for this piece). Looking froward to hearing what your Genos can do!
