BEAT #480

'BEAT #480' started life, actually on GarageBand. It was before I got back into composing properly. In other words, I needed to find the right software for me and it wasn't going to be GarageBand, although I'm still grabbing particular sounds from it. And eventually, I found Studio One from PreSonus, which I use now.

  • Intriguing and enTRANCEing. Your brain wants to take it apart and reveal its secrets, but the patterns are mesmerising and shifting in both rhythm and harmony. Play it in your car and the speakers will beg you to pump up the volume!

    • Hey Chris. Thanks so much for this. This is one of my first efforts since my very average song-writing in the ’70s and ’80s. I’m loving being back at the coal-face of music, and it’s even better to be appreciated. I have an audience of real live people! Yay! Thanks again.
