Funny you should say that...
The first 'draft' of 'Awakening The Avenger' is now up on the site. It
is a *long* way from finished. I have a lot of fiddling to do with the
instrumentation. The changes jar a bit in places. I also really, really,
REALLY need a good sharp sounding drum kit for Hydrogen. I want a hard
but light kick drum (not some woolly muffled sounding thing), a nice
rattly snare, high hat, cymbals, wood block etc. Everything needs to
sound very bright and clean if it is to sit well. Previously I would
have used the GM kit in my Sound Canvas but I very much want to do this
all in software.
The separate bare bones of 'Wakeup' and 'Avenger' have been
laying around in my musical 'spare parts' box for a while, but
with a key change here and a tempo change there they weld together
almost seamlessly :)
I really must rummage around in that box more often!
