    @ Jayanth,

    Great work yaar. The file sounds good but I see domination of the keyboard and the guitar does sounds strange.

    Anyways truly good.

    nice jay...

    but cannot v have wav or mp3 format posting also? midi limits guitar playing a lot..cuts out a lot of frequencies...

    Thanks nats, Essi, Dhim and Assasin and Abhay... those are Fx Midis.. I created using Fruity Studio Full version for which i worked my arse off to buy it..

    I can do any sort of guitaring with Fruity.. Metal or otherwise.. It would sound a lot less stranger if i created that with GP4.. Also i used the Amplitube amp simulation.. Which you can make out.. Feels like a room full of music.. Drums were created in cakewalk..

    My band i i have made it a point to sequence everysong we compose so that we can practice our parts without haveing to Jam.. so that we can go to a concert and start playing whatever with out any problems.. all our timings will be same cause all tempo changes are maintained..

    Fruity loops?? i have used it too... i guess it requires a longer time to getting used to it but once u get used to it, its easier to work with it than with other softwares i have used... thats what i felt...

    I did love to post some of mine, but I am absolute zero on sound recording and sound mixing moreover I am a single person playing the accoustic guitar. I will surely post once I get some exposure and experience on those fronts.

    Well... midi composing doesnt require multiple musicians or sound recording... with most midi composers u just tab the riffs u composed and it automatically changes it to midi format.
  15. esgallindeion

    esgallindeion Minstrel Knight

    Just to clear something... we are not posting recordings of what we have played. Im sure jayanth has played that song of his, but if he has it is not him playing it in that file. Its midi. He has composed it using a software with a computer.

    Dear esgallindeion,

    Can you please recommend some free tools that support midi composing/recording so that I can get something working with my Accoustic Guitar and my multimedia PC


  17. esgallindeion

    esgallindeion Minstrel Knight

    Like jayanth mentioned in his first post in this thread, guitar pro (all versions), tabit, tabedit, fruity studio all support midi composing or transposing.

    Well, here's another example...

    It was created using gp4 in the last 2 days. It has 4 guitars, 1 bass, percussions and 1 vocal line with 3 verses, no chorus and a few solos here and there. Heavy, and fully created by me.

    jayanth <.: : Call Quits : :.>

    I composed al those tracks alone.. Also Fruity Studio is faster than Gp4 where you go on playing notes by numbers.. Here you can do it using a keyboard connected to the comp thru Midi post.. amplitube gives you amazing Amp sims to go with it..

    @ Mars.. I'm looking at recording an album.. Trying to get the funds together(which Is Mission Impossible).. So i'll try post Mp3s of MY BAND(Not Copywritten) On my site and give the links..
