Anywhere you go

I had played on another branch of Niklas’ and Oliv’s track already, so I took my bass from there to see if it would also fit on Anne’s wonderful song… here you go…

As always, thanks to my friends for all the fun, and for their wonderful music. And thanks to you for listening.

Love forever feat. Mark Z.

I added fishi’s sweet sax and also my upright to a wonderful Canadian/German/Welsh and with the sax also American love song:

As always, merci, danke and thanks to my friends from Wikiloops, and thanks to you for listening.

I bought Mixbus

After supporting Ardour since a while, and also after purchasing Reaper because I used that on both Windows and Linux, I recently saw a note in the LinuxMusicians forum that currently Mixbus is on sale again. And following the link, it was indeed reduced by quite a margin, so I decided to get it. I mean, 19€ or $ or 17£, that’s a steal for this program – plus they are also the biggest sponsor of Ardour, that’s why I jumped on it.

For those of you who don’t know what it is, here’s a video ad from its makers:

Harrison Mixbus (v2)

It looks pretty on my desktop (a much newer version 6 compared to the video above:

Mixer view of Harrison Mixbus

Pretty much identical to Ardour 6 on which it is based, plus some added polish / features / plugins. And it also comes for Windows and MacOS like Ardour.

I’m quite curious to see (or rather, hear) what things like their mixer with tape saturation etc. will do, so I’ll dig into that soon, and keep you informed.

As always, thanks for reading, and for viewing.

Farewell

What a nice track from Martin, couldn’t resist to play around with it a bit…

As always, thanks for listening.

17mm

Last week was my birthday, and I got a new lens: the Olympus M. Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 which is wonderful. Here it is on my camera, took that shot using the Google Pixel 4a phone:
