Michael,
thank you so much for sharing this. A very respectable "feat", I kind of
feel the work, but only kind of, because my orchestra consists of machines
only.

My brother-in-law criticized people playing blues just for the interest in
the genre - blues only from the people who have suffered is real blues. I
don't know if I'd draw that strong line, but you've certainly earned your
blues! You are telling us things could be much worse. You are living
through your music. None of the technical details matter here, because the
bar really is raised above all that.

Thank you.

Sami

Impressive genuine bit of blues. Sorry you list your friend like that.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.

'nice and moody! and handy to be able to play so many instruments :o) !

I can't remember if I've shared this on this list before but just in
case I haven't, here's a sample of what I have been able to produce
using this amazing (free!) piece of software plus a Korg M1 and M3. 
My version of 'Little Umbrellas' from Zappa's 1970? 'Hot Rats' album.

https://soundcloud.com/user-869419971/little-umbrellas-zappa-arr-chuck-elliot/s-oV0F5

I'm particularly proud of the fact that I managed (more or less) to
transcribe this mofo. The process was difficult, painful and lengthy and
a.f.a.i.k. this is the only extant transcription of the middle section
of this piece. There's also a take on 'Black Page part II' on my
Soundcloud account for the musically, terminally masochistic.

Best wishes to all Rosegardeners and huge thanks to the developers.

Chuck.
