Soon I will be dusting off my Casio and installing Reason once again. I do have a retail copy of CakeWalk somewhere, but after playing with Reason, I'm going to stick with that... I'll also install Audacity, no, not that one... I know that there was one which was open-source..... Hrmmm.. Something to ponder while at work..

As an after thought, Audacity is free, but I was thinking about an open-source program which was for music creation, not just editing....

Vader, I was working on forum hierarchy based on yours and Sooth's suggestions when I came across your post. I'm sure our limited membership would enjoy hearing some sample of your future musical workings!

If it helps at all, I'm not sure if the open-source program you're talking about is the Linux MultiMedia Studio (LMMS), but I used it a few times back when I thought I could pretend to have rhythm. It is an amazing piece of software, open-source (FREE!!!), and my favorite part: it easily imports and runs VSTi files, which are virtual instrument banks. In my experience, LMMS runs mostly MIDI synth files, where the VSTi files I found were actually digitized real instruments. They are BIG...where a MIDI instrument is mostly just data, a VSTi is actually real-time editable WAV sound files of notes an instrument can create, and as I'm sure you're aware, WAV files are BIG. But lemme tell you, go from a MIDI saxophone to a VSTi version, and the difference is instantly noticeable. What I've done in the past is simply google 'free VSTi' and browse through all the crap ad pages until I actually found some free instruments. There are MANY sites that charge a pretty penny for these simple instruments. Hope this helps!

Well now, had to find LMMS, and of course it's like figuring out how to launch my first space rocket...and I was googling and accidentally found: Your First song with LMMS

Hope it helps! Who knew there would be a wiki?! Now, can I make something....?

What a pain in the ass it is to take an audio file and put it here... Not complaining about this site, just the overall inability to share audio on a forum without video. Youtube said, 'Hey, no video? No upload!' I asked why and it said that their services are for viewable motion thingies. So. How do I do this? Camtasia? Webcam? Windows Movie Maker? *sigh* WMM it is.

Here's a side project that I was doing trying to figure out the 'snap-to-grid' application in Reason. It didn't work out that well, still trying to figure the little things out. Don't mind the pictures; I had to add them so there were "viewable motion thingies" for YouTube.

Nice job! I know you're not "there" yet, but there are several points where I was expecting the drums to start pounding away! Or at least some cowbell... Very Happy I'm assuming the snap-to-grid helps keep the beat and measures and stuff without needing drums or metronome beforehand?

Edit: You posted the menu music while I was typing... so the above comment is for the first video. Second video: that works damn good for a menu! (or a ringtone!)

Just a few sound tests that I made with either Reason, Audacity or both. Things seem to be getting easier the more I use them!

Thanks! Very true that I'm not 'there' yet, but I'm indeed getting there!
